Love this hike. We got to complete the whole hike to the top before the fire in 2017.

Short trail but perfect for kids. Challenging enough for the little ones and Nice waterfall at the end for the adults

This loop is not 4 miles, it’s more like 5.5! It was a great trail and I highly recommend it but if you were hoping for only 4 miles, you’ll be sad! Winter time is great, saw lots of waterfalls and not a lot of people out for a Saturday.

This was the first time that I did this hike in the winter. It was amazing! We just hiked in our boots. Crampons could have been nice here and there, but it was totally doable without. We passed lots of people with snowshoes, which wasn’t necessary at all. We were definitely a lot faster and more agile. The hike overall is moderate. It took us a little under 3 hours to complete the hike (out and back). The view on the summit is stunning. Very windy though. We were able to see all five mountains. Such a treat. This hike is definitely one of my favorite ones. Great in any season!

A beautiful hike!

Definitely need spikes up until about Mirror Lake and from there on out. Many people on snowshoes and in spikes. People with nothing were slipping a lot. Icy and well packed. Going up TDH mountain was relatively easy, this is my first time doing this hike in winter but second overall. Windy as all hell at the top! Sky was clear and Hood was shining!

Did this during a wind storm on 7 December 2018. Reversing the route gave a much steeper ascent and is not recommend. Some of the trail is still beautiful, some waterfalls are amazing, but the essential beauty of several segments was lost to the fire.

Did this hike in November. Very beautiful views and not too much work to get there.

Amazing Waterfall

Beautiful views will do this again! Went in October good temperature and clear view

This was the first place we stopped on our road trip to Oregon, the trail was closed because of the fires in 2017 but the falls themselves were absolutely gorgeous! definitely a lot of people there and you really have to wait to get on the bridge but it was worth it!

Great hike, tons of waterfalls. Beautiful scenery despite scorched landscape at certain points.

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.

Super short and easy hike with a decent two tiered waterfall at the end. I recommend only going if you combine this outing with another hike in the Gorge, for example the Latourell falls.

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.

Nice, easy hike with lovely views of the river along the way.

AN ABSOLUTE MUST SEE!!! Has to be one of the most beautiful places on this planet. Steep, but my kids were able to do it just fine.

Way too many people here to enjoy the water falls base. But the higher you go up the fewer people there are and the view improves too. Since the fire happened the trees are thinner allowing you to see more of the river and the far side of the river. I love Multnomah Falls but I wish it was less accessible to Instagram model wannabes.

Great trail, good challenge and great scenery. I recommend starting in the direction of Multnomah Falls, that way you can finish with fewer crowds of people.

Loved it. Waterproof shoes were a must since waterfalls actually passed over the trails (day after rain in December). Absolutely gorgeous and not too busy, but not entirely isolated - I did it alone so it was nice to occasionally see some people.

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

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.

Very easy hike with a great reward at the end. Only lasts about 25 minutes tops. Right now it is very muddy and wet, but slickness is not an issue.

Beautiful!!!!! Work driving out from Portland to see it. About 40 minutes away from the downtown. There’s a restaurant and lounge here too. We didn’t go in, but good to know for next time. We walked alway to waterfall and had to head back as it was raining. Feet were soaked, otherwise we would have done entire hike.

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.

Beauty with little difficulty.
