Always a great park for a walk or hike. Parking can get scarce on busy warm weekend days.

undeniably the most gorgeous waterfall I have seen in person. And I've seen a few...
there is also great 4 wheel drive/atv/motocross trails in the area (you'll drive right by these, so keep your eye open)

Nice easy trail (little muddy in spots). Appreciated the suspension bridge and the waterfall.

Great hike! Dog loved it too! Beautiful views! We will def be back!

road to this trail is closed

trails are not marked very well but, still a fun easy hike

My absolute favorite hike, but I can’t stress enough to bring an SUV! The walk down to the trail head isn’t bad it’s having the 2.5 mile walk back up a rocky road after, luckily enough people are great and offered us to hitch a ride in their truck bed on the way back. That said, hope you’re prepared to get wet and muddy!

Holy cow! What a beautiful hike. The suspension bridge was amazing! Falls were absolutely stunning!

Disappointing. The trail is definitely not for the very young, the very old, or anyone with mobility issues. The trails are very steep and not well maintained. It looks like there was cinder/gravel on the trails at one point but in many (most) places that surface has been ground into the dirt and what is on top is really slimy mud. In one steep place we saw before we gave up and turned back there were 3 foot skid marks. Also the "steps" near the upper parking area are not at all what the county park shows on the website. These were made of stones, apparently quite a while ago. The "steps" have broken up and resettled into a very uneven course. In places the next step is more than knee high. At the lower parking lot, there is indeed a waterfall, but there is so much brush in the way that it is not at all visible. We walked downstream a ways to see if there was a point at which it could be viewed and did not find any place where the waterfall was visible. It is really too bad they didn't locate the bridge that crosses the creek 20 feet below the falls instead of 20 feet above the falls. You can see where the water goes over, but no view of the falls proper. The area itself is quite nice. Perhaps the county can find some money for needed maintenance.

An amazing gem right in the heart of NE Portland.

Did the trail with 4 adults & 5 young kids. So fun. About an hour to there and and hour back. Beautiful perfect family outing. $5 day use parking fee. Don’t be fooled by long country road, this is a heavily used trail. Might want to come early so you can find parking.

Knowing some tips about this trail will make your life a lot easier. Go with a friend who has been there before. And plan to get wet and dirty.

Amazing reward at the end!

The water here is the prettiest blue to turquoise.

This place is nice it's a cute small simple trail that's family friendly we found it randomly while looking for another trail we couldn't find in the area so that was strange lol.

The water fall was really pretty and the view from the suspension bridge But this place gets SUPER crowded after a certain time so try to go as EARLY as possible because it just gets annoying when the crowd piles up.

Nice trail system for picnicking and waterfall hikes. Well maintained county park with restrooms and wooden stairs and viewing platforms . Family friendly

took the kids (4 and 10) had lunch on the trail. pretty views, little traffic while we were there.

My first hike. I’m not in great shape and found this trail to be relatively easy. Beautiful,peaceful, and perfect weather. Wasn’t busy on the Monday afternoon we went.

Short moderately steep but the stairs helped. May 2017. Enjoyed the views and the lush green. And the waterfall was beautiful. Wish I was in better shape for the hike back out, had to stop once to catch my breath.

Waterfall and the 360 degrees around it are a 6 out of 5.

Hike itself is kind of meh. The drive was fun and sketchy. You can get to a dirt parking area with most cars. But it would not be fun to walk the way down the road and back up. I was able to get 4/5 of the way down before the road gave way too much for my stock 4Runner and parked on turn around cove.

Another driver made it all the way down to gate with probably 22” tires on a pick up.

Hike was slippery and muddy and once you get to river edge have to hike on rocks the size of a human head for an eighth of a mile. It’s all about the payoff. Saw 2 other hikers and had the place to myself when I got there. Go now if looking for a good sight or wait until warmer weather to have a better time on the sloppy trail.

great hike. best to go early before everyone shows up

great place to go with kids. 6 and 10 year old little ones loved it. especially the suspension bridge and throwing rocks in creek. we will be back when weather warms up

Couldn’t get my sportwagen through the snow today unfortunately but looks like a beautiful area! Going to try again in a month or so

This was overall a very beautiful hike, with a few small precautions that hikers should be made aware of. First, the restroom at the trailhead is poorly maintained. Second, do NOT leave valuables in your vehicle, as there was broken glass scattered throughout the parking lot. Third, many hikers not leashing their dogs. Otherwise, the river was crystal clear and mesmerizing, and the terrain made for a fantastic workout! Bring lots of snacks!

Beautiful, short hike over packed snow. Family friendly and definitely worth it. Expect snow until mid March.

Great hike with some beautiful water falls. Picnic tables, bathroom, and grills at the trailhead
