Quick short trail with great views! I was worried about the drive up, but my small car (Toyota Corolla) did fine on the 45 minutes of gravel/dirt road. I would recommend this trail!

This portion of the trail was an easy stride and full of autumn beauty! Great year round trail.

Wonderful hike and an easy trail to navigate once you've found the trailhead. If you're hiking upstream the actual trailhead can be tricky to find if you don't have service or good directions. If you're unfamiliar with the area I strongly recommend getting familiar with directions because GPS commonly fails here.

This was by far my favorite hike of 2018. Challenging, beautiful, fun and plenty to see. Went of trail to get behind and underneath some waterfalls, but nothing too crazy!

Extremely easy hike as most of the trail was paved. The bridge and the water is beautiful and we definitely enjoyed it as a more leisurely hike.

lovely trail with gorgeous trees, creek and waterfalls. loved it!

absolutely loved it!!

Beautiful trail to backpack in the fall. The leaves are vibrant and less people on the trail!

Great Trail.. loved the waterfalls..

Short and sweet easy hike, with highly rewarding views for the effort, in a very remote area. Free camping at Buck Creek at this time of the year.

Squaw lake is a gem. Trails are wide so whole family could ride around together or enough room to share with others. There were a couple of rope swings to jump in the lake for a refreshing swim. We swam with fish and skipped rocks. Definitely going back again.

lots of people but great entry level backpacking

cute small falls

7/22/18 - Trail is well groomed, road is good except for a small gravel portion, which was not bad. Expect for people to drive really slow specially if it's a small vehicle or minivan. A bit of advice - Never go on a Sunday, specially if it's a hot day. Lower Lewis was packed cars parked on both sides of the road with more behind us. We decided to skip Lower and went to Middle then went up to Upper, there was no more then 20 people at either. Happy travels!

Easy trail, great for families and on-leash dog walking. Draw backs were how busy it was, and parking. Overall, a very nice walk.

gorgeous views. Easy walk to enjoy with your dogs!!

Maps took me by a road that starts in Talent (it was the closer one) and it was a nightmare. The road, called Anderson Rd was horrible, not maintained at all and you have the impression you’re always lost. If you don’t have a truck and 4x4 it can be frustrating. The best route is by Jacksonville, taking Upper Applegate Rd and then Little Applegate Rd. These roads are pretty well maintained. The hike is short, but you can keep going by the next trails.

Just got back. No bugs, which was a real plus. We had the entire place to ourselves and didn't see a single person on the entire trip. The place is just gorgeous and if you head to the top of the falls there's a Jacuzzi style water hole that can swim in.

Great trail in an incredible area to hike in. Hiked too much today and my phone died. Hate it when that happens. Was able to charge it before I did the next trail in Grants Pass. Hats off to the Jacksonville Woodlands Assoc!!! A truly great place to hike.

I've been in the lower falls..
no words can describe how beautiful it is... Amazing...

Great trail!! My GSD and I went hiking on the Petard trail and had loads of fun!

Dog shit central.

I wouldn’t call this easy but it’s a nice hike and beautiful water falls.

The view was amazing! We did the longer route about 3 miles one way so I would consider this as hard hike but everything was worth it.

I'm not in great shape. But, I wouldn't call this "easy". Beautiful hike tho!

I hike this trail several times a year it is easy, but there are a few steep sections. There isn't much if any snow during the winter which makes it an excellent place to hike when other places are snowed in. A couple if years ago while hiking the trail there was a rattlesnake that buzzed at my dog on the edge of the trail. Beware if you are hiking with children. That was the only time I saw a rattlesnake but I have heard them a few times.

great hike. Wife is a beginner but had great time. Lush wood made for cool hiking


Beautiful place
