I hike this trail twice as a kid with girl scout camp. So beautiful! Time to go again

This was a really nice hike with incline. The waterfalls are gorgeous

The falls were gorgeous and the hike along the water was relaxing. Not technical, pretty easy

A must climb if you are just starting out and have big dreams of climbing!

This was a great trail. There was only a little snow in some spots, and we only saw only one other person. The waterfalls were spectacular!

Absolutely beautiful!

The hike itself is expected to be closed due to washout on FS2324 until Summer 2019, so we didn’t not complete this hike

Great hike with incredible views. Do not be mislead by the trail that takes off from the parking lot--the actual trail starts down the gravel road a little ways and is marked by a sign about not spreading seeds and a boot scrubber. The route that takes off from the parking lot is a social trail that has been created recently--unimproved and poorly routed, don't add to the damage by taking this route! The actual trail is well maintained, with a few slippery spots and two small logs to cross. Dog friendly. Please respect the cultural significance of this site and not disturb any rocks at the summit. It was disheartening to see how much disturbance has occurred in the last couple of years.

Just do the bottom half of the trail.

Very difficult trail. Very cold weather.

Great hike, serene setting and landscape.

Great hike! It’s a long haul to the falls, but completely worth it!!

Steep. The road to the trail is well marked and well maintained. Little slick in November, probably not great in the rain. The trail is up the road 8810 just before where it narrows, about 50 yds back down the road from where you stop. There’s a sign. If you’re not on an obvious trail that’s marked at the trailhead, go back and look. Trust me when I say you don’t want to try going up the wrong way. (I did find the trail eventually). It doesn’t get less steep, but keep going to the top. The view of Mt Adams is spectacular. Mt St Helens is 80 miles away and looks great also. You can easily see mt hood as well. I understand Rainier is visible but it was clouded over. It’s very cold and windy on top, so layers. Trip down is a breeze.

Road to the trailhead is very well maintained for a forest service road. There are a few pot holes but they’re more like speed bumps and easily avoided, my Honda Civic had no issues getting there if you’re worried. Trail to the base of the falls is easy and short, if you want more of a challenge hiking to the upper trail #152 has some steeper sections. Couldn’t really see the falls from the upper trail but found some cool camp spots with a view for backpacking.

Very nice hike. Not very steep, except for the short trail that takes you up to the Falls Creek Trail #152. I went up to the base of the falls and then to the viewpoint above the falls and then completed the loop and my Alltrails app recorded 6.5 miles.

Gorgeous views! A little slippery in spots but not too bad considering it was rainy. Kinda brutal, uphill alllll the way.

Don't take Berger Rd! It's terrifying!

Great introductory hike for a newbie. Not saying it was a breeze - my legs definitely felt the up and back but due to moderate length well accessible to all with the right shoes (I had tennis sneakers which were not ideal!) Anyway this walk has now got me up for more - !

Relatively easy trail. Follows creek most of the way to the falls. Awesome little peekaboo of the falls from the trail before you get to the lower viewpoint.

Had some steep hills, a bit slippery with the wet leaves and dirt! Gorgeous trail and views!

Wonderful hike and an easy trail to navigate once you've found the trailhead. If you're hiking upstream the actual trailhead can be tricky to find if you don't have service or good directions. If you're unfamiliar with the area I strongly recommend getting familiar with directions because GPS commonly fails here.

Extremely steep most of the way up but the views at the top are worth it! Didn’t see anyone else on the trail and it was a beautiful clear day.

Hiked this October 13th-14th. It was honestly a gorgeous climb and a great way to get introduced into the sport of mountaineering. I went with my school and unfortunately our groups fitness wasn’t the best and we only made it to around crescent glacier. The sunset was amazing on such a blue bird day, however the wind storm that ensued was pretty wicked 40+ mph winds at our camp and most likely much higher winds above. Still an awesome experience and some great views.

This was by far my favorite hike of 2018. Challenging, beautiful, fun and plenty to see. Went of trail to get behind and underneath some waterfalls, but nothing too crazy!

Beautiful view at the top and short hike.

Great hike. Best fall colors.

Don't believe the negative reviews, there are plenty of signs and I believe only two pot holes that I can remember. The road is well maintained and you can easily get to the trail head in a car (I did) and there is a large parking lot with a bathroom. It was absolutely beautiful, the fall foliage is incredible right now. I did however almost hit a heard of Elk so be watchful on the main highway!

Beautiful Fall colors going on right now! We only saw one other group today. It was not only beautiful, but very quiet. We will definitely be back.

Incredible views and an incredible hike.
