I’m an avid hiker and frequently complete 14-20 mile hikes with over 3,000 feet of elevation gain. This trail was poorly marked and there was not a map at the trailhead (just a poison oak warning sign). After hiking about a half mile the trail comes to a fork. The left was blocked off with rocks so we went right and there was an extremely steep, loose scree slope. I would not recommend attempting the scree without hiking boots. As this was an unplanned stop/hike and I was wearing an old pair of running shoes so I turned around. Back at the fork there were people coming off the left (blocked off) part of the trail. I started to head down that trail and could see people standing on Mitchell Point through the trees. However the trail was extremely over grown and was washed out in some places. That coupled with all of the poison oak made me decide to turn around. I would not recommend this hike. The views from the trailhead were just as good and there are better trails in the area. Now that I see the all trails map, the left trail appears to be the correct path.

I loved this hike! We looked at both falls. Super fun to be able to walk behind both and see the backside of water. There was frost, so it was a little slippery in areas, but manageable.

Switchback incline was tough. But a break here and there and we were fine. Bathrooms were good. Cafe was perfect as we were cold and hungry.

The term trail is a questionable at points, but the view is definitely worth the rocky trek.

Difficult road to travers to the actual trail head unless you have an all wheel drive vehicle. We walked the road to the TH and the trail itself is not long but steep and appearing not formerly maintained. The hike is sleek with rock and covered in fallen leaves making it difficult to traverse in many areas. The pay off is well worth the jaunt with a beautiful falls. The drive to this falls is also splendid.

This was my first hike when I moved to Oregon in 2016. I hiked one week before the fire. I will always cherish this trail as my favorite.

New parking and trailhead now open. New route shows on the map. The new trail section looks like a new trail. But the bridges over Camp Creek and other stream are nice and within a couple years it should look great. Really nice to have more adequate parking and not having people walk along 26 to get to the trailhead.

An amazing all around hike! Small walk right up to the base of the falls, or a small moderate 2.0 mile loop if you’re interested in hiking the whole trail. On the trail you’ll see a second waterfall and some other beautiful sights! Hiked it on 11/7/2018, and the fall colors were really popping. Loved every bit of it!

Absolutely gorgeous! made it to the white locked fence easily thanks to the directions of *always staying to the left and down hill * directions once turn off of Crooked Finger Rd. Took second trail as stated below with Abbey Foundation sign and it was a quick hike in staying left once we hit the river.
Definitely going back once every season this next year !

Went in the dark, still a fun hike

Didn't do the entire trail because we were on a time schedule but the waterfall is gorgeous. Highly suggest.

Perfect hike, not hard just enough and getting to the waterfall was a great experience.

Easy hike.

Great hike, really not hard tho. Took us 2hrs 30mins up, the first 5.5 miles are very easy and almost flat, from there on you hike up the ridge towards the lake, still very doable. The lake is gorgeous, just don't drink/swim, there is 5 elk carcasses in the water and 8 more on the ice.

Awesome hike, I’ve hiked it three times. Amazing falls.

Not difficult, but if you want to get better pictures you’ll do a little navigating on slippery rocks. Even then, it’s not bad. Views are spectacular, of course.

This scenic trail is easily accessible (once you find parking!) and provides a very scenic hike. Fairly busy, keep dogs on leash, use proper trail etiquette.

So beautiful!

We enjoyed our hike on a beautiful 65 degree, sunny day! On the way to Mirror Lake, the trail weaves through pine forest on a consistent incline, but the ground is a bit forgiving. There are tree roots and rocks to work around, but it is easily navigable. Don’t skip the hike around Mirror Lake, this is where you’ll get iconic views of Mount Hood. The hike down is relaxing. Enjoy the tranquility and the friendly hikers you’ll meet along the way!

Gorgeous hike that’s still accessible even in the snow! Lots of great pics and tons of tiger trout catches

I've done this hike several times. Easy enough for everyone, but still a fun accomplishment. Beautiful view, woods, lake, and wildflowers. That view of Mother Hood is to die for

easy hike, gorgeous views at the lake. our dogs loved it too.

Lovely hike on easy trails. There are a couple beautiful falls for a shorter hike.

Beautiful

Great trail for all ages. The views are spectacular!

Beautiful clear day, the views were spectacular!
Trek was steep but not too hard, well worth the hike!

So beautiful, definitely worth it to go on to the Tom Dick & Harry trail once you loop the lake!

My brother & I drove ALL the way here for nothing...
We can hike like beasts and navigate well but once we got about 1/2 way done with the hike, your just left stranded and guessing.
there's a HUGE lack of signs and you just get lead to an open area of complete confusion.
We tried to find the right trail using the description but had no luck at all.
We tried to find the right way for an hour or two and just said screw all of this and packed it home.
If you want to waste your time... Come Up To This Trail!

absolutely beautiful and full of different types of scenery. there was limited visibility at the top when we went, which added to the feeling of being in another world.

First time hikers with a 9 yr old and a pregnant lady. It was rainy and overcast but was still lovely. Maybe we’re just optimists, but nothing ruined our hike!
