BE AWARE ICY TRAIL!! Wanted to hike larch mountain trail on 12/8/18, but signs at multnomah said it was closed from here, then I attempted to hike to the top of the falls, which I've never done and again the trail was way too icy... I think it was at switchback 2 or 3 out of 11 long switchbacks that I gave up, with every step even with my trekking pole I was slipping with each step. I'll have to try another time. There was also freezing rain when I was here.

We hiked this trail on Thanksgiving Day. It's an easy to moderate hike, with beautiful, striking scenery. It took us just about three hours, with quite a bit of picture taking on the way in, and a pretty good pace coming out.

Loved coming here! so beautiful! a trip with remembering for a long time! it was a bit chilly when I went there, but I had a warm jacket on, so that took care of it.... make sure to bundle up when going on a cold day. it was packed, but we found some parking! so picturesque! a must go. it's practically nothing to go up to the bridge, but still wear good shoes. Have fun!

Amazing walk to see a variety of waterfalls, with multiple ones being able to walk behind (you do get a little wet). The walk itself is pretty easy and trail is super easy to follow. The cost into the park is now $5 but it’s definitely worth it

Nice easy walk and a beautiful waterfall! Was pretty busy there even on a weekday in late November. Definitely recommend going early to miss the crowds

Was easy and fun hike. It’s pretty muddy right now when you get to the overlook from the top of the falls. My dog loved this hike and the switch backs tired him out.

Great hike! I didn't do the entire loop though. I took the Canyon Trail and cut across on the Winter Trail and then took the Rim Trail back. (to do the 7 mile loop, you do the Canyon and Rim trails). The way I did it was a 5 mile loop and I saw 8 of the 10 waterfalls. So even if you cut it short, you'll still see them!

I went in November and the fog hung in the air even into the afternoon, making for awesome pictures and a more somber/peaceful experience. Go on a weekday to avoid crowds, and start in the morning if you can. In the fall, definitely bring warm clothes and hats, mittens, etc!

The trail is rated as moderate, but with the slight elevation gain (other online sources say only 800 feet), I'd rate it as easy. There are steep sections, especially one place going down to Lower South Falls, but there are stairs and handrails here.

Parking is $2.00 for an all day pass. Totally worth it!

I loved this hike and recommend it to families with slightly older kids. As well as anyone who likes to hike but isn't looking to overexert themselves.

Good trail. Exposed roots in sections, but otherwise well maintained. Nice views of the river along the way. Very peaceful once you leave the road. Saw schools of salmon in the river below.

My first major summit. It's a hard climb, but worth it at the top.

Easy, great views without much effort. It is a busy spot.

Short (2 miles round trip), well maintained trail. I would call this family friendly (472 feet of elevation gain). Plenty of opportunities to stop and rest (and take pictures) on the way up. The views of the lake and Wizard Island were great.

Beautiful!!

Absolutely breathtaking views and amazing perspective of the falls. A lot of falls have walkways behind the falls. Definitely one of my favorite hikes of all time!

I am not from this area. I along with several other cars pulled over and parked in front of the gate right off the highway and waited for the gate to open. I read online and it says that it works off sensors and opens as several cars leave. After seeing about 20 cars leave and it never opened I got frustrated and decided to try my luck by going up the highway and turning around and entering from the other side. There is no gate on the other side. You go straight in. Beautiful waterfall.

Absolutely beautiful. I went with my husband & daughter in the summer. Be sure to take plenty of water. I'm going again with a friend in October. should be pretty in Fall. Highly recommend it.

Awesome. That’s all that needs to be said.

Very crowded!

Super day out there! Nice and sunny and trail was good. I would obviously still recommend mountain gear, poles, crampons etc. it was a great day! Trails were great!

great trail! loved it!

beautiful trail, immerses you right in the middle of the Redwood forest. Lots of roots on the trail, but I highly recommend this trail!

Sumitted November 8th!... a bit chilly, but no wind at the top, and amazing sunny views! Definitely appreciated crampons near the summit. This is a challenging hike! I am an avid hiker and runner and my body hurts in ways it rarely does 2 days later... but well worth it!!

Started at south trailhead and scrambled up the rock at the top. A clear day is a must for the incredible view!

Absolutely stunning trail...don't miss this one! The forest here was not dense, so the Redwoods clearly are the star. Really stunning. My heart is longing to go back. Like the other reviews, this moderate trail was on the easy side. It shows 875 ft elevation gain but I didn’t really feel it as it was gradual. Stunning!

We only had a little bit of daylight left and were in the vicinity so we chose this short, beautiful trail. Only problem was you could hear the street noise (hence the 4 stars). The park service is trying to re-establish the waterfall and creek which were covered over years ago due to logging…hence the pipe that someone complained about. But we found it quite beautiful.

The Ranger suggested we come in from Redwood Creek to access this trail and it was spectacular! I highly suggest this route. You’ll start at the Tall Trees trailhead but take the Emerald Ridge Trail down to Redwood Creek. From there you’ll head north up the creek for about 1.7 miles. There is no established trail which made this extra exciting with only minimal risk. It’s absolutely gorgeous down there, but you will have to cross the creek in several places with water up to mid-calf (it was early November when we did it). Our trekking poles came in very handy and I suggest bringing an extra pair of socks! Just extraordinary scenery and solitude. You’ll have to find the trail that cuts you into Tall Trees loop…we used All Trails to show us where we were and so it was easy to see when we were close to the loop. The loop itself is beautiful of course, and then we exited via the Tall Trees Trail. Highly, highly recommend this route as the creek was just beautiful. Don’t forget your permit before you go.

Beautiful hike, enjoyed the falls very invigorating
