good for kids. cool tree.

We went left which is the what I would consider the easiest way to go up so you can loop down near the sandy river and avoid going uphill as much.

got a little lost but it was fun. the waterfall is down a scary path but worth it!

Easy to find and mostly well kept trail. Picking through the rock slide was difficult as the trail there wasn’t well marked. Beautiful view and not busy on a Sunday morning! Sure I’ll be hiking it again

This hike was so great, I did it twice in one week! The flowers are in full bloom even in the heat of August. The views are spectacular! It’s a bit steep on the way out, but does flatten and then there’s some downhill for last section.

Great hike with incredible views. We went on a clear day we could see mount hood and the three sisters. It’s a bit steep at the end but totally worth it. The area where the cave was is completely burnt. However, still highly recommend!

Great family hike. Its easy to miss the forest road turn off you need to take.

Not very picturesque. Very long and not entirely safe. There is a water crossing that I wouldn't bring kids or animals through.

This is our favorite beach and typically our home base for our Oregon trips. Not too busy, but close enough to lots of other activities as well. So beautiful! Lots of VRBOs in the area. Enjoy the peace and quiet.

Great hike! Falls are gorgeous! Took 2.3 hours. total hike from parking up and around the loop. Going “right” at beginning of trail loop starts you on a steady uphill, not too steep, climb. Enjoy the falls while swatting flies, then downhill all the way back to parking lot. MapMyRun said 8.4 mile for me round trip from parking lot. Crossed river on stable logs

This trail was not bad, however I felt the need to constantly watch my step during most sections to avoid rocks and tree roots. The hike isn’t strenuous until the switchbacks at the end and the rewarding views at the top make it all worth it. Bring more water than you think. The trail to Boca cave was very dusty and dirty due to the remnants of the fire. I had my 14 year old and 10 year old and the cave “trail” gave me some mom anxiety. Haha. It’s very steep and slippery. Coming out of the cave was wet and very steep for the first section. I recommend traction shoes. We were all very dirty at the end, but what an amazing view!

Trail was nice and easy to reach but other than the falls and the view of Mount Hood from the back of a parking lot...... there really is not much to see. Nothing wrong with this trail I Just wasn't impressed.

Busy place but not to cloudy . Great place to relax :)

When we first got here we were just about to start the trail, and a very nice lady on the bench told us it was very steep starting from the beginning but that we could turn around, cross the road and start the trail from the back and it wasn’t as steep as starting from the beginning. We decided to do this instead due to my rheumatoid arthritis. It was more of a gradual elevation change, and half way to the falls I was thinking to myself “maybe it wouldn’t have been so bad with the short steep elevation change vs the gradual elevation change and going downhill the rest of the way”, but once we got to the meadows I realized what she meant and how steep it really was. But this was a beautiful hike! We even saw 3 deer on the trail near the ski lifts. I would definitely do this trail again, as umbrella falls was beautiful and flowing pretty well AND the walk thru the meadows with all the wild flowers! The deer in the meadows was a plus as well!

First of all it was really busy. Much busier than expected as it’s described as moderately trafficked. It was really confusing figuring out where the trail started as you walk right down into the waterfall from Alsea Falls. We ended up doing the Green Peaks Trail which was okay. The signage was better once on the trails but overall we didn’t enough it near as much as most others.

Amazing view , kids had a great time . Very well maintained trail and easy short hike .

Trail is a little rough here and there . Hardly any water during late summer months . Be prepared to walk uphill most of the way back from the falls .

Love the wildflowers

This is a great hike with amazing views of Mt. Jefferson and other cascade mountains. It isn't usually packed with people, which is nice. The forest is beautiful and you get a treat at the top with plenty of private spaces to sit and view. If one was inclined, there is plenty of tent space at the top too. Since the burn, we didn't hike down to the cave this trip. It is a sad site to look out on all the burned up forest, but beautiful all the same. This hike is a good workout, but easy enough for anyone in decent shape.

Great hike with a wonderful waterfall! Views of Mt Hood were outstanding. I was a little worried about crossing the Sandy River but the water level was fairly low. We crossed on a log which spanned the river. It was a fairly gradual uphill to the waterfall- mostly downhill on the way back to the parking lot.
I highly recommend taking the Ramona Creek loop trail. The views of the creek and the vegetation were beautiful.

Made it up in 45 minutes just in time for sunset! Beautiful hike, views and setting!

I want to hike here. Is this manageable for somebody with arthritis?

Amazing views and interesting geology and flora/fauna. Nice road, easy for any type of car.

Google maps took us from Hood River, up over the ranges to get to the trail head. This required driving up some gravel/dirt roads with large potholes.

Several 4 wheels drives urged us to turn back, but we persevered. Fortunately we did not get wedged on top of the mountain and made to up to the start of the trail.

I would recommend taking the highway if you do not have something at least as big as an SUV.

The trail itself was quite good. A gradual incline the whole way up to the falls. Challenging to run, with some narrow sections where it is difficult to pass walkers, without pausing and waiting.

Easy decent. The waterfall is impressive in height, but lacking in water at this time of year. With no swimming hole at the base.

Dog friendly.

Zero snakes on a mostly sunny, warm day!

Very nice hike with beautiful wild flowers. There is a steep part but overall very fun.

Easy hike, elevation gain is very minimal. Great views along various points of the trail. Glacial river was low this time of year. Would recommend going when the glacial river is high if you want a more adventurous river crossing and hike.

Beautiful falls!! I would recommend going clockwise to the falls and probably going back that same way. It follows the creek, and has more shade, so it is cooler. Also I think the insects are lighter. I hiked the full loop at the end of July and killed ALOT of flies that landed on me. The insects dust seem to be as bad on the way back down along the creek though.

Awesome trail. Park at the ski lodge and it’s free. Make sure to take the trail down to the base of the fall , looks sketchy but it’s really not bad. Will definitely do again.

Another one of my favorites I've discovered after moving here a couple of months ago. Good hike with moderate incline and light traffic. long drive up the side road to get there but well worth it. would do again
