My dog and I hiked this gorgeous trail today. Super easy, well maintained, awesome suspension bridge across the creek and adjacent to falls, beautiful falls.

Amazing hike! Can’t wait to come back in summer to splash in the creek.

Very busy trail, but super cool waterfall and bridge. Go when no one else is there (weekday).

Beautiful view

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.

This trail was great! Some ocean views along the way and a superb ocean view (108* view) at the end of the trail. Some parts were pretty muddy and some of the big root sections had little ponds of water so I was glad I wore my extra tuff tall boots. Brought my dog with me and she loved the trail too :-) when we got to the end of the trail it was sunny and warm, felt like summer! Fun trail and definitely would recommend!

Challenging climb, but gorgeous views at regular intervals on the way up, including an absolutely beautiful view at the top. Do it! The trek up is aerobic, for sure, but the trail is well-marked and mostly covered in pine needles.

My tracker data said it’s actually 5.5 miles but elevation gain is right on. Great hike.

Really nice trail walk to the suspension bridge and waterfall! This is an EASY trail with a pretty grand ending, therefore it draws a lot of attention-ie other hikers, kids, etc. If you want to avoid people, I’d aim for hiking it on a weekday morning. Otherwise, expect to share the experience :)

This trail was recommended to us by the park ranger. Unlike a lot of the trails, it goes down to the lake where you can take a dip. We didn’t as it was too cold but it looks refreshing for warmer days. It was a nice short hike but somewhat of a challenge going back up. Doable for all!

Easy hike.

A great hike and less traffic on a Monday early afternoon.

Wear sturdy shoes. The trail is muddy and uneven. There aren't any guardrails along the cliff edges. Not for kids or unleashed dogs.

Previous reviews are accurate. There’s a boatload of slippery mud, but I went during a drier spell, so it really wasn’t too terribly bad. And there’s the tree roots. So many tree roots. I definitely felt the elevation gain at the end, but this is a doable hike. The view was gorgeous along the trail, but at the end, all I saw was fog. That being said, I’d still highly recommend this trail. Critters spotted along the way: one snake, one banana slug, and a couple chipmunks. This is one of those trails where everyone goes, so be prepared for lots of people and lots of dogs.

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.

A great, easy hike for the whole family to enjoy. Easily our favorite hiking spot to take the kids along on.

Nice easy trail. Busy. Take the north loop to avoid the traffic. Falls are nice, bridge is cool. Collected some mushrooms, yum.

We did the Giant Spruce Tree first and glad we did because we were tired after taking the way up R Perpetua Trail. It is quite an incline, but since i’m usually hiking in altitude in Colorado it was nice to be able to at least catch your breath! The view is spectacular and worth the climb.

Nice hike. Was a bit muddy in places, so I’m glad to have done it after a dry weather stretch. Can’t imagine how slippery and messy it’ll be in the middle of the rainy season! Great views! Couple of scary drop off cliffs, so keep an eye on your kids and pups. Lots of people and dogs. Some uphill and some downhill, but overall quite manageable, even for someone in not great shape :)

The wander in is really pretty. fairly deep forest. Not especially challenging. couple minor hills but thats really all. the view of the falls from the bridge and the area across the canyon are absolutely wonderful.
That much said, even on a cool early Friday morning there were a ton of people. on my way in, I passed 4 groups of people in less than a mile. all of them were super friendly and gave a pleasent good morning as we passed each other. on the way out, however, I must have passed 10 to 15 groups totalling 50 to 60 people. and most of them had zero trail manners, using their large 5 to 10 people group to block the whole trail forcing me completely off the rather wide trail. Some of the groups had younger kids who were yelling and screaming and stomping on mushrooms and trying to push over small trees. while I'm happy to see parents bringing their kids in a no cell service area, a little respect for nature wouldnt hurt.
I may go back during the spring run off, but not unless its a cold rainy day.

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.

The muddiest trail ever. Crazy tree roots. Pretty views. Great for kids and not hard.

Awesome short trails. The kids loved it. Great views.

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