Excellent hike! The roots and puddles were a bit difficult but all around an amazing hike!! So gorgeous!!!

Great trail for all ages. The views are spectacular!

Nice little trail, dotted with meadows & views of Rainier. The “faraway rock” overlook alone, makes this hike worthwhile. This trail is manageable for children 8+.

The muddiest trail ever. Crazy tree roots. Pretty views. Great for kids and not hard.

Awesome short trails. The kids loved it. Great views.

great short trail to the top and bottom of the falls. three kids and myself enjoyed this very much.

Permit Required to enter the gate. The gate is 6.5 miles from the trailhead so there’s no way around that. Other than that it’s a beautiful easy hike/walk to some huge redwoods.

Great hike. Long but many different terrain

It was beautiful and refreshing standing on the back of the fall!!!

Upper section not too crowded (Friday 9/14/18 afternoon). Some road/traffic noise along lower section. Beautiful forested area. Decent elevation change with some switchbacks.

このトレールを歩くには、最初にThomas H. Kuchel Visitor Centerに行って登録が必要になります。ゲートの鍵番号を貰うの。見応えの有る巨大レッドウッドが続きます。最後は河原でのんびり出来ます。ただ、帰りは基本登りなので、その分の体力は残して挑みましょう。歩いて良かったです。

Nice hike. Some beautiful views. Half the trail is very well maintained, the rest is roots and puddles. Went hiking on a rainy September day.

Hiked on 9/8. The upper falls loop wasn’t too crowded—but lower falls looked a lot busier. Gorgeous views all around due to a dry and sunny day. Couldn’t have asked for a better morning hike to start the day.

two waterfalls in one hike. nice!

had a great time walking this Trail, ended up doing the loop twice because of the incline and sheer magnitude of the view you get both at the top of the falls and lower Falls. Highly recommend

One of the best hiking for healing mind, soul and body!

quiet spot in the park that gives a good look at some awesome redwoods and other big trees, then get sweaty on the way back up!

Highly reccomend stable shoes. Took my dog on this hike and had a blast but the trail is not flat. I didn't have too much trouble but when I wasn't paying attention to my feet I rolled my ankle over a few times. Definitely my bad for wearing running shoes. Not very difficult, but I would have to say going down on the last treck was the more difficult part for me with my dog. He's still learning trail etiquette.

great quick hike! but it was very smoky today. the smoke seems to come and go.

Great trail! It'll def kick your butt on the way back. Get your pass at Thomas Kuchel visitor center first. It's free. Don't forget a mosquito spray. They're really mean at the park. Pack plenty of water. The trail is not 3.3 miles. It's more like 4.5 miles, we tracked it with GPS.

Very green, beautiful falls even in March.

This hike is filled with beautiful views of the ocean as well as the old growth forest. The trail has several areas where the tree roots are quite dominant creating steps in some places and obstacles in others. There are several quite muddy places that require some careful navigation. The only wildlife we saw on this particular day was a couple of snakes. The hike was lovely and enough of a challenge to be satisfying without being overly taxing.

I would highly recommend this hike. The views over the ocean are absolutely stunning. There are some very muddy spots that are not all that easy to traverse, but it's so worth it. I saw one guy trying to go through in flip flops, which I do not recommend. Appropriate water proof footwear is almost an Oregon coast must have. Also the parking lot was overflowing when I arrived about 11am. So, go early.

Great loop hike! But it wasn’t 2 miles. More like 4.4 which was great! Rocky terrain, shoes with good soles are recommended. From the lower park, take the left hand trail at the Y. It will take you to the lower falls within about a mile. Keep going and eventually you will reach the upper falls ~2 miles. Then loop back down on the other side of the stream. Moderate only because of the terrain. The elevation gain was about 1000 ft. Great on a beautiful day. You can walk behind both falls. Please be kind though, and pack in pack out. This is a very tourist-y spot.

This hike was okay, great views (even with the fog). But it was SO muddy, wear appropriate footwear, we were ankle deep in mud at a couple points through out the hike. Very crowded but that was expected close to the holiday weekend. We brought our two dogs who are well behaved and were leashes the entire time and encountered a couple off leash dogs, PLEASE keep your dog leashes.

Very muddy, but a great hike!

I rock hunt and collect driftwood.i had a blast

Favorite. Hike. Ever.

This is a great hike. It isn't technically difficult at all, more like a city park trail with a good elevation rise back to the car. The Redwoods are amazing.

Great view at the end. Edge of a cliff, into the ocean.
