Such a beautiful hike on a crisp winter morning I recommend this hike to anyone! So many beautiful waterfalls

Got there later in the afternoon so thankfully we missed all the tourist hikers.
Great for my 2 year old but again just too popular of a site to go more than once every few years.

This is the first trail I had done on the Oregon Coast and man it was so worth the hike.. Beautiful scenery and just amazing views all around...

I'm so sad that this trail is closed. I had some really amazing memories there.

Hiked on Jan 1, 2019: no parking fee, no bathrooms at TH, well-marked trail, parking lot fills quickly on wknds, Trail closed/gated at Ponytail Falls. This was a quick beautiful hike (1.5 miles RT) to Ponytail Falls.

More difficult than moderate but quite a nice view of Shasta at the top. Past bit is like walking up a giant staircase with big steps.

Pretty busy

Beautiful beautiful hike!

Very good trail, would definitely do it again! Easy hike with young kids. Our 4 year olds walked the whole two miles and our 6 year olds said it wasn’t long enough. I suggest getting there early we showed up at about 10:30am and ran into a few big groups and a few individuals, however the parking lot was full when we got back and was filling on the side of the roads.

Fun and semi easy 2 mile hike. Beautiful waterfall, but to get to the bottom of this fall, you will have to go down the steps at the end of the hike. There’s a nice waterfall half way up, which will definitely add value to the hike.

The hike was beautiful. My girlfriend and I hiked this trail during the summer and enjoyed every bit of the views and nature. We personally enjoyed the upper falls better than the lower falls on the loop trail due to the fact that there were a lot less people and you could just get a lot closer. The trail itself had a couple look out points which made it that much more rewarding. Both are beautiful falls though.

The waterfall is beautiful. I have gone there many times and every time it continues to blow my mind. The falls and hike change with the seasons. Beautiful beautiful.

Horsetail & Ponytail falls are beautiful this time of year, even though it was super cold. Be aware that this trail is a tad steep, but not too difficult. The trail to Triple Creek is closed still due to the fire, but the trail for Horsetail & Ponytail are open and clear.

Great winter hike !!

If you don't like edges, don't do this waterfall hike!!

I'd been to this trail several times during the summer, but never during the winter, and wow... go during the winter months! The trails aren't as packed, and the waterfalls are flowing with so much more water! Bring a waterproof jacket though because when you go under the falls the mists are so strong that you may get soaked. Excellent hike that I will keep going back to.

watch out for high tide, nice trail through a tunnel but can be dangerous if the tide is coming in

Totally over crowded, ransacked and ruined by people who do not follow the golden rule of coexisting nature (leave nothing, take nothing). Water quality is abysmal, super gross. Broken glass, trash, clothes and graffiti cover the place. It's a shame, because pictures from long ago show what a beautiful haven in the forest this once was. Now...ruined. Heartbreaking.


Update 1/3- I returned on a weekday and found it much more of an oasis. The trash during the government shut down is still horrifying, but if you're able to find a quiet time to soak, it's much more enjoyable.

i went out a couple weeks ago, and could not drive to the bottom. i have a lil sedan, so i just pulled off the side of the road and parked. even parking a ways up, the hike was totally worth it! the road down is a lovely walk.

Easy walk to some amazing views. The water hitting the walls was so powerful and beautiful.

Absolutely amazing in every way, even when muddy and wet it was still fun to trail run. Just get ready to stop a lot, it’s breathtaking all throughout. I enjoyed starting at the North parking lot (not where this map leads you to) and running clockwise.

Took about an hour and a half. Took my time and enjoyed the beauty of the trail. The part of the trail on the other side of the main road is paved, but the trail that loops above the waterfall is dirt. I encountered several families that were enjoying themselves. There are definitely opportunities to get too close to an edge, but there seemed to be adequate precautions to prevent that from happening. I will definitely be doing this hike again.

Great hike, not a workout at all.

It’s one of the best hikes that I have done here in us.... this time of year around with the overcast, the forest for green and live and serene and beautiful... waterfalls were amazing and walk behind certain waterfalls makes you forget where you are

Such a beautiful hike!!! I’ve done it a few times now lots of fun..

The directions in this app tell you that you are there before you are. Just keep going on the road and you will come to a parking lot. We took the loop starting on the left of the first waterfall. It's steep at first but not as steep as the other side. I was surprised that there were so many people there on Christmas day and can just imagine how busy it would be on a sunny day. we had to park outside the parking lot. nice waterfalls for a short trail.

Very easy and simple trail. The waterfall is amazing and the loop takes you down to the base. Went on Xmas so virtually nobody else on the trail. Not too muddy after the rain. Parking lot small, so I could see it being challenging on a regular day.

Have hiked this one multiple times, not crowded on weekdays or in the mornings. Would recommend taking two cars and parking one at the north parking lot and then starting at the South Falls lot and doing the loop that way. Parking is $5 or a state parks pass.
If hiking in the winter, the trail near and around the South Fall can be complete ice

Easy, and gorgeous

This was a very nice hike. Incline at first but not too bad. The upper Falls is really beautiful.
Short hike, not too hard
