Great hike not too hard and the bridge is amazing

Easy gradual hike. Flies were annoying but the bridge was worth it. Parking was full on a Monday afternoon.

Great hike amazing waterfall at the end.

Suspension bridge, waterfall, dense forest... LOVE!
Elevation gain was about 728 feet combined. Not very steep at all at its "worse." Took my 75 year old father and he did fine for being an inactive person.

Great family hike filled with a ton of nature (we spotted a snake, chipmunk, millipede & an assortment of birds). The suspension bridge at the end is the highlight and a pretty neat experience.

A nice, easy, well maintained trail if you want a break from beach activities on coast. Waterfall and suspension bridge at end of trail very unique and there is some good rock scrambling for the kids (optional at end of hike). Trail is well graded so really no serious uphill hiking. Access road to trailhead is long and narrow - but paved, so a big plus - a nice drive through forest.

This is a great family trail. I took my daughter and her best friend, both 14. We had a great time. The trail is well taken care of and it is a very peaceful hike. The bridge is great! Perfect multiple view photo opportunity for subjects or the falls. When you make it down to the bottom be sure to explore. It is worth climbing around and getting your feet wet. Depending on your timing you can walk right up next to the bottom of the falls and get soaked in a heartbeat by the spray.

As a follow up to Katie Holts review yesterday. We went at 10am and there was maybe 5 bees the whole way. So don’t let that review deter you unless you are going later in the day maybe?

This is a wonderful hike. Took a 4,6 and 9 year old. The 4 year old was whining pretty good most of the way back but we made it.

This review would be perfect except for one thing... bees! Thankfully I’m not allergic, because I was stung TWICE while on the trail. We hiked with our dog and never left the trail once or disturbed any nature, however for the majority of our hike in and about half the hike back out we were followed by numerous vengeful bees. I was stung twice, once on each leg. Thankfully my wife and dog were not stung but that doesn’t mean they weren’t also at the mercy of these evil bees!

This hike is very pretty, the road in and trail are both well maintained, and the high bridge and waterfall at the end are both worth it. However, please take this with as much caution as possible, FOR THOSE ALLERGIC TO BEES: Do Not Hike This Trail! Even with an EpiPen, these bees will not leave you alone!

Won’t be returning anytime soon.

Awesome hike trail for a family. We brought our 13 yr old, 8 yr old and 7 yr old to do the hike and they enjoyed it. The suspension bridge was next to the waterfall, which was at the end of the trail. We did the whole hike just under 2hrs (round trip). Great views all around. Paths were well maintained and easy to follow.

Still closed from hurricane Maria but the rainforest is gorgeous and still worth the visit. They do allow you far enough up (driving) to see Coca Falls and to the first viewing tower. There isn't a lot of parking but stay patient and you will get a spot. There is a 30 minute time limit on parking. Only trail we found that was open was Angelito. Short but it leads you to a nice stream.

My favorite waterfall to dance beneath. Great little hike with wonderful rewards.

Nice excursion away from the coast. good trail with a nice bridge and small waterfalls at the end before turning around. rec. do the north loop on the way out.

Beautiful! Waterfall and bridge create an ideal backdrop for a hike. We took our 1 1/2 year old and he was able to navigate the trail just fine. Totally family and pet friendly! Great way to spend the day!

This trail was beautiful and fun to walk. We enjoyed very much.

Easy but still very fun and interesting! Leads to a beautiful spot, the suspension bridge is neat and the road driving in is well maintained. We started around 10 am and barely beat the big crowds, lots of cars parked along the road when we left at noon.

Populated with trees that creak in the wind, wildflowers, several bridges. The bridge with the view of the falls is almost a more spectacular view than the base of the falls itself, but one can climb right beside the falls at the base.

This trail is inaccessible as of today 6/24/2018 due to road construction.

My favorite hike in el Yunque forest. Have done it so many times that lost count. It is beautiful hike and the views on the Rock (to the right couple of minutes prior reaching the top) are amazing. Then can go down the road to reach Mt Britton and continue that trial which connects to Yunque trail or continue the road until another trial to have different view and then just take the road back to the parking lot. Not sure if it has open after the hurricane so check before going.

This hike is so popular, so if you want a parking spot, get there early. It’s short and sweet, well maintained, and has a suspension bridge and waterfall. This was my third time on this hike, and I’m not tired of it yet.

Fun trail. We went in December and it was a bit soggy but it was still fun.

This is one of my favorite trails for several reasons. It's short and easy enough that everyone can do it. The wooded wilderness setting is nice and the falls at the end are beautiful, but for me, the suspension bridge is the highlight. Just fun walking across it with the views down to the Falls. This is one of the best Central Oregon coast hikes around. Only reason I don't rate it higher is that facilities is just an outhouse. Other than that, this trail is great!

I went on this hike with my husband and our 1.5 year old daughter. She was strapped on my back and we let her down a few times to run around. My favorite hike I’ve been on! So gorgeous and hiking down below to the base of the falls was incredible as well as the bridge. Gorgeous hike. Highly recommend.

Beautiful fall and bridge at the end of the trail

Awesome hike for a good day with your dogs! There is even places for them to drink and swim!

Nice hike, short and good rewards at the end: Suspended bridge and tall waterfall.

Beautiful popular fern forest trail with dramatic falls and suspension bridge.

Loved this hike and the bridge is spectacular. Not difficult to get to the falls.

Great hike! Well maintained. Plenty of parking when we were there and clean rests stop.
