beautiful hike! Not strenuous at all, with lots of great scenery. took my husband and I about 3hrs round trip as we stopped ap many time to get amazing photos. highly recommend microspikes if you're going this time of year (december), especially as you get closer to the falls and at the falls if you want to get a closer look.
only reason I'm not giving a 5 out 5 is because there were several people with dogs not on leashes. Please be courteous of other hikers (especially those who actually have their dogs on leashes). I love dogs but dont love being jumped on when I'm trying to enjoy my hike.

Did this Dec 9. The vehicle access road to the trailhead parking lot closes for the winter on Dec. 1 so the hike up the road to the trailhead adds 4.5 miles round trip, making this a 12 mile hike. The log crossing was easy as there is a log handrail next to one of the main crossing logs, so even though it’s icy, you can easily hang on and feel safe as long as the water level is low. Could have used yak tracks in a few icy spots but no need for snowshoes right now. Pretty views of Hood and the falls are beautifully iced over in parts. Almost no one out today due to the weather.

Amazing walk to see a variety of waterfalls, with multiple ones being able to walk behind (you do get a little wet). The walk itself is pretty easy and trail is super easy to follow. The cost into the park is now $5 but it’s definitely worth it

Nice easy walk to two beautiful waterfalls. If you catch it right the sun makes a rainbow just by the falls. Went on 3rd December and trail was a little icy and slippy so be careful. Was very quite as well only us along the trail.

Beautiful hike, perfect For This Time Of The Year, !

Beautiful day with gorgeous view of Mt! A bit windy but otherwise perfect, no crowds easy parking. Our dog loved it!

Absolutely beautiful!

We couldn’t make it to the trailhead by 1 mile because the snow was too thick. 4WD required. We will try again!

Did this one in August. View at the top was incredible.

Lovely hike. Went up on dec 2nd. Spikes highly recommended for the final 3rd to the falls.

Nice fairly quick hike. Little bit of elevation to get to the lake, but the loop around it is flat. Expect it to be busy during summer weekends.

The parking fee is 5 dollars now, but still worth it!

it was an amazing hike. fell down coming out of the cave.

Trail isn't too tough to get to super cool and unique scenery and views on the way to the cave.

amazing views and a great well kept trail!

Awesome trail all the way. (This review describes hiking up the ridge first for a counterclockwise hike, which seems to be the more common choice and my preference.) Some very steep grades on the ascent up Misery Ridge, so I like to use a trekking pole. Great views of the river canyon on the ascent, then you wind around to the back where an even more spectacular view awaits of the cool Monkey Face rock formation (look for climbers on it) and the Cascade Range all the way from Mount Bachelor to Mount Hood. Then the trail descends down around Monkey Face and follows the river in a mostly flat meander past a lot of climbing sites. (A previous reviewer compared Smith Rock SP to Zion NP, just on a smaller scale. That is exactly what I thought the first time I visited here!)

It was a great trail. Not too hard and a great length. How ever, I believe the 6.9 mi. that this app says is wrong. My garmin watch said it was close to 9 miles. Went late November and hiked through some snow! Slippery but just be cautious. And crossing the river is fairly easy. Enjoy!

I absolutely love this trail!! The only problem with this trail that I have encountered, is that many folks don't leash their dogs. This makes it challenging for a dog on a leash. If one dog is on leash and the other isn't, this can create big issues between the two..Please leash your pup's, even if they are super sweet.

Amazing scenery, quick, fun, intense hike. Misery Ridge portion is not kid or dog friendly in my opinion with crowds and vertical drops.

Good hike with decent incline... However, it is longer than 3.7 miles. Prepare for atleast 5.8 miles.

Yesterday did 5.5 miles roundtrip to the bridge over the creek and back same way. All the falls were beautiful in the snow. Solid ice layer beneath the snow so needed traction the whole way. Due to trail conditions, few people ventured beyond Tumalo Falls and even fewer beyond Twin Falls

Terrific hike. Great view from the ridge a little past the lake.

It was icy on some parts of the trail, but nothing that required micro spikes. They will probably be needed within the next couple weeks. You will need spikes if you want to go behind the falls though.

Awesome, relaxed hike. Crossing the river wasn't too bad - it definitely looks scarier than it is. We went the first weekend of November and there was no issue, but I'm not sure how high the water is now that it's rained recently.

Very pretty trail and waterfall. Follows the river the entire way. Microspikes are highly recommended!! don't let the beginning of the trail fool you. It gets icey and rocky.

Fun relatively easy hike! Be prepared to walk on a log to cross the river! Super pretty and pretty empty trail!

Snow is starting to accumulate in the upper meadow and above. Slick icy snow on the way up to the saddle, microspikes recommended

THIS IS FREAKING AMAZING! The only thing that makes me sad is that I don´t have any formal experience climbing. The views are stunning. Loved it! For me it wasn't a hard hike as some people say, I think moderate is accurate. Lots of people.

11/18/18. Relatively easy hike, mostly flat, well-defined trail. Beautiful views of Mt. Hood when the forest opens up a bit. Ramona falls was an awesome way to cap off the hike.

We did the 8 mile loop that showcased about 8 different waterfalls and a generally amazing trail. This hike is as hard as you want to make depending on how fast you go and if you do the loop. The walk back on the loop is not nearly as nice so if you walked to the 1/2 way point and turned around I wouldn’t blame you.
