Beautiful moss covered everything with varied terrain. A great place test out some gear or break in new boots due to the varying terrain. I experienced gravel, dirt, water over rocks, moss covered paths, inclines, declines, lightly showered with water from waterfalls, etc.
Waterfalls of all shapes and sizes can be seen from varying angles and directly behind.
This includes some of the smaller day trails; definitely worth experiencing.
Plenty of parking available; five dollar parking for the day at south trail. Also, there is a picnic area, small cafe, and restrooms at the south trail entrance. There's some parking at the north trail, not nearly as much as at south trail. There is a single privy at north trail also.
Definitely recommend if in the area. Not to be missed.

Nice hike. Waterfalls are beautiful. Got a few peeks at Mt Hood. Took the northern path on the return, walked through shin deep snow mid April. Shoulda had our gators on with our waterproof boots :). Great hike all around.

Beautiful and moderate hike. It was worth to hike 10 miles. It rained and we were equipped. Wear waterproof hiking shoes, raincoat, and bring plenty of water and protein bars. We hiked this trail in March 2017.

Falls, falls and 8 more falls. This is one of the premier locations in Oregon for waterfalls per square mile. If you love waterfalls, a good moderate hike and Oregon greenery, this is a must see. Giant waterfalls all along the trail with some opportunities to follow the trail behind the falls. Great photo ops, and spots to stop, relax, and maybe eat some lunch. The only negative is the popularity of this State park. Lots of people on trail and many out of towners. Good excuse to meet some new people though. If you aren't into that, hit the trail early to avoid the crowds.

The Oneonta Falls are CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE due to the massive Columbia River Gorge fire of 2017. Please check the link below for updates.

Steep but rewarding! Nice little hike with some amazing views. Nothing technical though do take your time going up and down some of the rockier/rooted areas. Good distance for the amount of elevation gain!

quite a bit busier than i was expecting, even after reading other reviews, but there is plenty of parking.

I would suggest doing this early in the morning in the summer. I hiked this mid day and wish I had made it earlier. I hiked Tam-a-lau trail at Lake Billy Chinook before hiking this particular trail, so I arrived later than I wanted. The views are amazing! We brought binoculars with us and was able to watch a lot of rock climbers. There were 2 people in the mouth of monkey face! It was somewhat busy, but never seemed too crowded. Would like to do this one again!

plenty of paths to choose from
plenty of sites to see
close to Salem
decent amount of people
but most are decent

Oregon’s finest trail besides the crowds!

Beautiful hike. Awesome little log buildings with a cafe and fire place. Lots of people, and some trash on the ground throughout the hike. If you only have 2 days to live, do this hike before you die. Promise. 撚

Beautiful walk even in the rain!

This trail was fantastic. The views were gorgeous. The trail was an easy walk which, although a little wet, was wide and flat. There were little to no roots and my 3 kids loved it. The youngest is 6 and they weren't even tired afterwards.

Great hike with the family. Beautiful scenery the entire route

Ignore my stars.. I just wanted to give an update on the road conditions. We tried getting to the trail head yesterday and found quite a bit of snow still on the road heading to the trailhead. We were traveling in a 4WD crossover, which did fine, but the snow progressively increased and the road narrows with 3 miles still to go. We decided to turn back in case it became too deep and we didn’t have the ability to turn around down the road. It would be passable with snow tires or maybe a little bit bigger car. In reality our car would have probably done fine but it made me a little nervous. We will definitely be back to do this hike in the future!

Not too long of a hike for a family. We stopped halfway to have lunch next to the river. The views were gorgeous and don't regret doing the hike. Both our kids (9yr. & 13yr.) really enjoyed it.

Completed this hike on our Vacation last week! Just came in on the gravel road side of the trail and it was easy to walk and great views! Worth doing if you are there!

LOVED this hike, but make sure you bring LOTS of water with you because it is such a hike! Went twice last summer and plan on going at least once every other week this summer =)

One of the best hikes that I’ve been on but make sure to wear the proper shoes.

Great flow after a rain on snow event made this mid March hike truly epic. The falls on this hike are impressive from beginning to end. Easy to moderate hike, mid week is best for avoiding the crowds. Good coffee and food at the lodge

Always love coming here, weekdays are perfect if you want a less crowded experience! Be careful on the stairs and watch your head!

Took the Red Meadow trail from the bottom of the parking lot. Spectacular little less traveled, unpacked connector to the Trillium Lake road. Main trail was well packed and easily traveled without snowshoes. Gorgeous easy trail!

Total distance from parking lot to and back was about 5 miles. Distance listed is for the Lake Loop only so be prepared for double depending on route. What we walked was the Lake road. The trail loop indicated in this file is the low trail at the lake's edge.

Amazing waterfalls, large parking area, not difficult.

3/24/18 - Only made it to the lower lake but a beautiful hike! The forest of pines in the beginning is scenic and the view from the lake is awesome.

Wore only mircospikes and we post holes the last half mile - Would heavily recommend snow shoes.

That trail from the Power line trail is “Closed” and is private property according to letters on posts near gate.

Amazing hike!! Would highly recommend! It rained off and on the whole time but it made it even more beautiful.

Hiked 3/14. Made it all the way up with boots and poles. Poles were a must or at least spikes as it's steep and slippery. The last mile I was sinking in the snow quite a bit so I actually put snowshoes on to get back down to the river bottom. Awesome winter hike!

Wife and I just did the loop yesterday. Beautiful walk. There were a lot of families along the trail and it seemed like even the young kids weren’t having any issues. Well maintained, well marked. We were prepared for a much more difficult hike, but all of the falls and the forest were such a great atmosphere that we really enjoyed ourselves. Casual walk, stopping for photos, a lunch break, and to converse with some folks- the whole thing took 3.5 hours.

A great family friendly hike. You can hike different sections if you are crunched for time or the whole Loop. I've done both ways several times. It does get very busy in the late spring and summer. Best time to enjoy it is on a weekday- less busy.
