great trail for kids and dogs

hiking

Great trail! I took my dog with me and she loved it! The best part was the part leading up to the creek. Its so beautiful out there! I will definitely be returning.

Overall, the hike was amazing. I only rate this a 3/5 since it’s a longer distance from Portland than other beautiful coast hikes, and the geotagged trailhead on AllTrails is wrong. AllTrails will likely take you to a fork in the road—but drive 1.5 miles farther on the left fork. I didn’t find the ascent difficult, but I can imagine it can be depending on the weather/experience of the hikers. Bring a nice lunch to enjoy the view at the meadow, it was awesome to emerge from the rainy and cloudy forest to a sunny coastal meadow.

Pretty area. Easy hiking!

Lots of sea lions barking, you can also see them swimming at the end. The cove is super cool. We opted to track over to the right of the grassy knoll down onto the rocks and sit for a couple hours. Saw lots of sea lions, birds and even a whale throw it's tail up! Traffic was light and we didn't see a whole lot of people. It did kick our asses

a little steep but completely doable and only 1/4 of a mile.

this was such a fun trail dispite the fact that the opal pools were not quite as impressive as I was lead to believe. still very pretty. nice easy trail. the kids gave up about mile 4 though so unless you got some energetic kids with some hiking enthusiasm I wouldn't recommend it. jawbone flats is pretty cool I had no idea that was there. the path is mostly gravel road except for 1.3 miles that is good trail type trail. lots and lots of huckleberries this time of year.

Love the waterfalls and a great short refreshing hike with the kids

As of now, the old highway is closed due to the Sept 2017 fire that burned though. The view of the waterfall is gorgeous but i does get really crowded. Was able to hike up to the bridge, but any further hiking was closed off.

This is one of my favorite sub-1 hour hikes in and around Lebanon. There can be a lot of people in the park on any given weekend, but most evenings it’s fairly low traffic. The upper trails are narrow and are feeling a bit overgrown but it’s still gorgeous.

I walk the loop counter clockwise from the bottom lot and get the stair climb out of the way early which makes the rest of the path a breeze.

Great hike.

one waterfall is very low, otherwise great

Flat trail and amazing falls!! Turn right at the start of the trail head and follow the blue diamonds.

Great views but this is not an easy trail. The trails are also a little confusing as they are not clearly marked. The trail on the left leads to a viewpoint of Natural Bridge and then goes further along the coast. The trail on the right goes down to the coast as well but is very steep and slippery.

Beautiful opal waters

Went here with My Sunflower back in April.
Very nice hike and area. Got great photos of the falls.

The trail is super short and currently closed. Not a bad trail but the bride and waterfall get very crowded as the day rolls on. I recommend going early. Right bow everything is fenced off, I would wait until the trail is open and the area has had some chance to regrow after these fires

Beautiful trail and a beautiful viewpoint. Saw lots of wildlife. Will kick your ass on the way back up though.

Quick but worth it. stunning views, way too busy

Just realize that it’s almost all uphill going out. Not very long but all uphill. Of course, coming back is all downhill. Quick fast walk.

Great falls to see if you haven’t check it out before. Crowded with tourist but it is a sight to see and enjoy. Many of the trails are closed off due to the fire from 2017.

Awesome hike ! Wish somebody would have said it was 6 miles of driving on gravel road because we popped a tire on the way down ... oof ... but other than that it was a really cool hike ! The natural water slide at the end was so cool. Maybe if they could put up more signs pointing to where to go to that would be helpful because we got a little confused.

Beautiful. Sad it was closed at the end of the bridge. Hopefully it will be open next time. Lots of people too.

Beautiful trail, loved hearing the sea lions, just wished we could have seen them. We did see a couple of whales. Need strength at the end of the hike to come up the hill. Some parts of the trail are overgrown but it’s beautiful and cool in the forest.

So did this hike with co-workers. The app says it's an easy hike. it is not! More like moderate is how I would describe it. Over a gravel road and up and down spots. But that being said it is beautiful!!! All the little trails you can go off to see the waterfalls and the most beautiful pools of water ever!! Jawbone Flats is so cool!!! Here's the moderate part of the hike.... the 1.3 mls from Jawbone is a very narrow rocky and better watch out for the tree roots trail. But I am telling you the end results is totally worth it!! I would do it again!!!

Beautiful views and falls. Well marked and paved. Was bummed the trail was closed at the bridge. Still worth seeing the falls. Parking was a breeze because we went early.

Was great for swimming and hiking, I did it with 3 kids 14, 8, 6, water was beautiful and clear. Got there early and the parking lot was half full after we got back it was jam packed. Overall it was a really great hike.

Well paved and easy walk up to the bridge. Well maintained.

Great hike! GO EARLY if you want peace, quiet, and tranquility. We encountered a lot of large loud groups on our way out late morning. Trail is moderately easy but do recommend good shoes as it is long. Forest is stunning and the water crystal clear!
