Was an amazing hike. Waterfalls, clear lake, and blue pool all in a day! What more can you ask for. All in all not very hard, but pretty long. Would recommend.

Super easy trail, hiked it after doing the majority of henline mountain trail but had to turn back because of snow. The fall is totally worth seeing. A few people there today but not a crowded mess.

Mostly very beautiful and pleasant experience. Awesome waterfall worth the hike. The road to the trail head is full of potholes, and parts of it just gravel. The trail is not toddler friendly close to the waterfall. Took 2 hours with two toddlers.

Fantastic falls! Short hike with great payoff! Good for families (youngest is 10). Bring your camera!

Good family hike (youngest is 10) with a great payoff at the end. Only reason not 5 stars is that the trail had large sections of mud throughout. Not a big deal but it forced us to look down at our feet and not at the spectacular surroundings.

Did this hike on a whim. It was pouring rain and slippery on the rocks, but it was nice because everyone else was headed back. When I got to the pool, it literally took my breath away. This was a favorite and the pictures just don't do justice. The entire trail was so peaceful, lush and green- even without the pool it is worth it!

Beautiful and lush bright green forests. Love the porous lava looking rocks along the trails and the blue pool is gorgeous! Wear hiking boots!! Stepping on a lot of rocks and unleveled ground, as well as very muddy in the spring.

Went all the way there and saw the parking lot with about 30 cars, stopped and turned right around. Not my kind of hiking I prefer only a couple people on the trail not a crowded zoo. Tuned around and hiked henline mountain trail instead. Much better

Nice area but was already kind of busy. I can only imagine how it is in summer...

Easy, pretty hike. Beautiful Oregon countryside and majestically blue pool at the end.

3/29/18 A beautiful day for a hike! Still snow on the trail but doable in trail runners. Beautiful views of crystal clear water and roaring waterfalls. Worth a stop for sure.

I took my dogs out here to get away for a little bit. I loved this hike. It was short and had a rewarding ending. The water fall and water in general were beautiful. There’s also a little cave there that you can explore.

I did this hike last Sunday and though I wasn’t expecting it to be cover by snow it was still an awesome hike! The whole way was beautiful river views with mint blue water it was just stunning! I would definitely recommend this hike. One of the most beautiful waterfalls.

The only reason I gave it four stars was due to getting to the trail head. If you love to rough up your vehicle then by all means travel the last 5 miles up there early spring with pot holes the size of a car. BUT! Totally worth it. The pools and streams where beautiful and still recommend the hike

Great hike! Went last year, and plan on going again soon. Good hike to take kids, we even took one of those big wheeled child stroller’s. Much is a road. Ppl in the town are pretty friendly and it’s interesting to see how their energy set up runs.

Great hike anytime. Both falls are beautiful.

One of my favorite short hikes. The falls and pool are beauriful. Be sure to go when the runoff is at its peak.

Easy hike, and very beautiful. Went yesterday and got there at 6am, only saw a small group of people as we got back to our car. I recommend going early to beat the crowd. Quite a bit of snow still on the ground, but I managed to go through easily with a pair of nikes.

Nice trail but can't do it all this time of year (March) without waterproof boots (or a willingness to finish the hike with wet feet). About 1.2 miles in there is a 20 foot wide creek flowing into the Santiam that cannot be crossed without getting into the water. During the summer months this is likely a small stream that is easily crossed but not this time of year. You will also find a small stream earlier in the hike. We were able to find a log just a bit upstream to cross this one or our hike would have ended there. We are looking forward to finishing this one come summer.

The water here is the prettiest blue to turquoise.

Giant waterfalls where you can walk any distance from 0-20 miles. Good to view in the snow even, parking lot has been clear most of the time.

Here is a video of my time here:

Couldn’t get my sportwagen through the snow today unfortunately but looks like a beautiful area! Going to try again in a month or so

Beautiful, short hike over packed snow. Family friendly and definitely worth it. Expect snow until mid March.

easy to get to for a quick and easy walk. the falls are a nice place for a quick rest before turning around. looked like the trail went on although we didn't go past the falls. looked like a nice place for fishing along the trail and swimming just past the falls

Awesome hike. Soft on your feet and beautiful trees. The view of the pool is incredible from above. Really cold water. Heavy trafficked trail

Love this hike. About 6 inches of snow throughout the trail. Great spot!

Such a great hike! So many beautiful pools to stop at. Also a good place to go backpacking. I’ve been twice and plan on going again later this spring.

Easy hike with a nice waterfall at the end. Also a little cave nearby you can venture in a bit. Nice easy hike, would be great for kids and dogs.
