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.

This was a beautiful and easy hike. Mostly flat hike with some moderate up hill areas. The river is easy to get across on the logs, but could be hard with pets or small children. There are a few beautiful views of Mount Hood, especially near the river you have to cross. Ramona Falls was even bigger than I expected, it’s definitely worth the hike! The area around Ramona Falls is roped off for vegetation regrowth, so please obey the signs and don’t pass over the rope.

Beautiful!!

Absolutely breathtaking views and amazing perspective of the falls. A lot of falls have walkways behind the falls. Definitely one of my favorite hikes of all time!

I am not from this area. I along with several other cars pulled over and parked in front of the gate right off the highway and waited for the gate to open. I read online and it says that it works off sensors and opens as several cars leave. After seeing about 20 cars leave and it never opened I got frustrated and decided to try my luck by going up the highway and turning around and entering from the other side. There is no gate on the other side. You go straight in. Beautiful waterfall.

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.

A hidden gem. Multiple shots of the peaks as you hike. the panorama is the cake!

i have been going here for decades and i am so disappointed its packed people parked along the road tubs nasty and packed thank you social media... i most likely only be going in the dead of winter now

Absolutely beautiful. I went with my husband & daughter in the summer. Be sure to take plenty of water. I'm going again with a friend in October. should be pretty in Fall. Highly recommend it.

Such great views of surrounding areas of the Colombia River Gorge! Did this a few years back with 2 Cocker Spaniels and they did great besides all the barking!

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

Definitely an hour well spent, but the views from the top were obstructed by trees. We spent more time admiring the views from the trail than we did at its peak.

Amazing hike, but come prepared for icy and snowy trail conditions starting halfway through the hike! It’s difficult hiking in ice up and down hill. Bring boot traction chains and hiking poles. They’re absolutely necessary. Hiked November 10th 2018.

Just a heads up. It's hunting season. Worth the $5 to buy an orange hunting vest so you don't get shot. Ran into a couple hunters who informed me of hunting season and let me borrow a vest. Better safe than sorry. Suspension bridge was awesome.

Very crowded!

For how popular this hike is I thought it would be over rated but it’s not. Short but steep and starts that way almost from the get go. Gorgeous view of route 26 fog early in the mornings looking east. Advice is to take the quick humbug trail for excellent views of this. The trail at times can have some mild flowing water in spots but easily avoidable. Views abound after the half way point allowing easy viewing of the coast and many peaks in all directions. Dress warm at the top. Wind likes to funnel up the range.

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 hike is on the tougher side! The loop on this trail map includes the "most difficult" section (left) and the "difficult" (right). We opted to do the "difficult" as an out and back, which is actually just a bit longer than doing the loop. Some areas are super steep, and there are rocks on the trail as you get up towards the summit. The views are amazing, and the wind whips pretty wild up top. Our dog was fine the entire way, and we ended at 7.6 miles in 3.5 hours, including a 20 minute break at the top for snacks and photos.

Gorgeous, unbelievable views! Ridiculously windy at points, thought we might blow off the side. Also be warned the last few miles of the forest road are pretty rough and require an agile 4 wheel drive vehicle (ideally with high clearance).

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

Awesome trail, very busy, very doable for anyone. Easy trail and short enough to take your time. $5 parking fee.

Beautiful trail to the top. Quite the Climb though.

Great trail. I want to go back in the winter or spring.

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.

This was a beautiful hike. Great time of year. No bugs. Easy in and out. Great for kids and dogs.

Amazing

on Green Lakes Trail

As spectacular as everyone says. Passed no more than 15 or so people in both directions with long stretches of solitude including at the lake itself. Conditions: Cascade Lakes Highway clear (from Bend) except for one snowy/icy hill just west of Mount Bachelor. Trail clear for first mile or so, packed snow for the next two (not slippery), some icy hills in the final stretch -- enough that I put on traction for the trip down. Tentative road closure date is 11/19 so enjoy this trail now!

Still closed as of 11/7/18

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!

Quite a difficult hike but worth it! Very beautiful forest.
