Hiked on March 5th. Great views of the upper and lower waterfalls. Multnomah falls and others were closed due to the fires, but this was a great hike to take its place. The fall can be viewed from the parking lot, so its easily accessed if you are looking for something easier than a hike.

Absolutely amazing views up and down the coast. Saw a whale and a sea lion at the end! Pretty muddy about halfway through. Moderate traffic on the weekends, go early.

We went over spring break. Water has a way of calling to me. The sounds, the colors, the mist... Beautiful!

This is a great forested trail with a few views of the ocean. Can get muddy and slick with rain but remains one of my all time favorite hikes.

Hiked this today. Go early because it does get crowded. I started around 9:30am and by the time I got back the parking lot and surrounding areas were full. Some muddy spots, so some area are slippery. Beautiful hike! Once you hit the upper Falls the mist will cool you off.

Fun little hike, rain was coming down hard and made the trails muddy, but still a worthwhile trail, and the camping shelters kept us warm and dry. Don't miss the WWII bunkers!

I thought people might have been over exaggerating the level of mud on this trail especially when I started out. The first half of this trail is well maintained and not muddy at all until you hit the first view point with railing. From then on is sinking mud puddles and lots of roots to navigate. I wouldn’t call it hard but it’ll definitely slow you down since you’re constantly checking your footing. I would save this one for summer when it’s dried out. But the views are worth the trouble if you can’t wait! Also I didn’t notice it on the way out to the cape but you’re going gradually down hill the whole time so the hike back out is mostly uphill. Extremely gradual uphill but constant nonetheless.

We hiked this trail in March 2017. It was strenuous going up. Bring plenty of water and protein food. It was worth it. Stunning views at the top. Watch out for people with dogs. They should not bring dogs on this trail.

Beautiful hidden hike. Took longer than I thought to get to the trailhead but was totally worth it! Good hike if you’re headed to the beach

The trail was great! It was muddy like other people said but we live where we live and it didn’t hinder the hike at all. No obstacles on trail and well maintained. So glad this beauty is open! If you want the solitude then take the upper falls hike loop. I had it all to myself this morning and I started late.

This trail is another awesome hidden gem. The trail itself is fairly easy to moderate at points, as it had some downed trees and bush across the path. I hiked the weekend of the windstorm in April 2018. The suspension bridge was great, I was expecting more movement, but it only had slight bobbing with only me on it. Very sturdy and well built, with a perfect view of the gorge and falls below. Keep going down the trail after crossing, as it switches back down towards the falls for a front row view. Very powerful, and pools were filled and raging at this time of year. Hike back is all up hill, but not bad at all. I had the place to myself early, but passed many people coming down on my way back up.

I imagine this hike is easier when it is dry. The views were breathtaking. Wish there were more markers to indicate how far along I was on the trail. My trekking poles really saved my hide on this trail. Calling this trail "easy" is a bit of an oversell.

Easy out and back trail. Was surprisingly busy for a middle of the week... was spring break for some, just not Oregon. Good views. Well maintained.

Nice hike. Kids liked the falls. Good workout. Really far out while driving. You think maybe you've missed it. Keep going. Worth the drive.

Easy hike. Definitely worth seeing the bridge and falls. Plan to do again soon.

SUPER easy hike! Got there faster than I was expecting and even got to stand at the base of the falls! Definitely one I’ll be revisiting soon!

Beautiful hike and stunning waterfall.

It was a beautiful, sunny day on the Oregon Coast when we did this hike. Gorgeous views of the ocean and you get to hike in a forested region. The trail can be muddy so watch out for that.

Amazing place absolutely love it!

Extremely muddy right now. My wife brought walking sticks which were extremely helpful for her and our son to navigate the best path in the muddy areas. We saw several people with mud on their backs from taking a fall. Views are beautiful. The whales were migrating and there were volunteers at the end point to let people know where to look. The trillium were in full bloom which was awesome, although their numbers were greatly reduced by hikers who thought it would be fun to pick them, despite the signs at the trailhead telling people not to.

Very fun short hike w great views! We missed the North loop which would have made it a bit longer. But crowded on a Sunny weekend and hard to find a parking space. There is a nice side trip- a covered bridge on bear creek road if u go that way instead of taking 101.

My husband and I loved this hike. There are two waterfalls and a well maintained trail. I used my trekking poles for stability in the muddy areas and for grip on the steeper parts. I’m pretty heavy and not in great shape, so I took several quick breaks, but it was very doable and I’m looking forward to going back again soon.

The road to get to this hike is closed, just want to save everyone the time. Not sure when it will be re-opened.

Visited mid-March. Sunny but cold. Most other trails were closed due to the Eagle Creek Fire. Muddy and some sections are steep. Fairly crowded. Hiked with 10yo and 4yo who completed the loop without complaining. Passed a few folks stopping to catch their breath. Upper and lower falls are beautiful. You'll get a little wet at the bottom of the upper falls. Only complaint is the lack of trail markers. Lots of folks were blazing their own.

They opened the bottom platform- might be the only chance you’ll get a picture of the falls without someone standing on the bridge haha
Awesome falls, 3 stars only because hike isn’t open yet :(

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.

3/24 Latourell Falls, beautiful!
Crowded, which I didn't like. However, because it was so muddy most people didn't go far..

Beautiful place to watch the sunset
