Slow and steady will get you there. Very worth it.

One of may favorite hikes in Oregon. There is no parking near the trailhead, and it's usually muddy, so prepare to get a little dirty.

This is an awesome spot on the Oregon coast. We saw harlequin ducks, oyster catchers, blue heron, harbor seals and a spouting whale! A must see when close to Newport.

My dog and I hiked this gorgeous trail today. Super easy, well maintained, awesome suspension bridge across the creek and adjacent to falls, beautiful falls.

Really beautiful views!

Amazing hike! Can’t wait to come back in summer to splash in the creek.

Very busy trail, but super cool waterfall and bridge. Go when no one else is there (weekday).

Beautiful place for watching whales, surfers, birds, and maybe the best sunsets on the Oregon Coast. I’d highly recommend visiting at low tide so you can go to the beach on the north side of the point and go into the Punchbowl. Fun tide pools and gorgeous views!

This hike is amazing! I'm glad I didn't let my fear of heights and some of the reviews stop me from trying it..it was So worth it! Wasn't sure I could find the trail head..but once I did I just went for it...I did slide down part way on my rear but I made it!

Really nice trail walk to the suspension bridge and waterfall! This is an EASY trail with a pretty grand ending, therefore it draws a lot of attention-ie other hikers, kids, etc. If you want to avoid people, I’d aim for hiking it on a weekday morning. Otherwise, expect to share the experience :)

A great hike and less traffic on a Monday early afternoon.

The trailhead isn't marked. Take a trail to the right off the gravel road for the most direct route. The path is uneven in places, but not bad. The climb to the top at the end is pretty steep, but worthwhile.

A great, easy hike for the whole family to enjoy. Easily our favorite hiking spot to take the kids along on.

Nice easy trail. Busy. Take the north loop to avoid the traffic. Falls are nice, bridge is cool. Collected some mushrooms, yum.

There’s really no trail here, but that doesn’t matter. It’s fabulously beautiful, and a cool place to watch surfers and SUPers from a high vantage point.

The wander in is really pretty. fairly deep forest. Not especially challenging. couple minor hills but thats really all. the view of the falls from the bridge and the area across the canyon are absolutely wonderful.
That much said, even on a cool early Friday morning there were a ton of people. on my way in, I passed 4 groups of people in less than a mile. all of them were super friendly and gave a pleasent good morning as we passed each other. on the way out, however, I must have passed 10 to 15 groups totalling 50 to 60 people. and most of them had zero trail manners, using their large 5 to 10 people group to block the whole trail forcing me completely off the rather wide trail. Some of the groups had younger kids who were yelling and screaming and stomping on mushrooms and trying to push over small trees. while I'm happy to see parents bringing their kids in a no cell service area, a little respect for nature wouldnt hurt.
I may go back during the spring run off, but not unless its a cold rainy day.

This hike is very nice for a clear day on the coast. Not recommended if you are afraid of heights! Pretty crowded on a Saturday morning. I downloaded the trail before I went and it was extremely helpful. You can get easily lost. The trailhead isn’t very noticeable just follow the map.

Moderate Hime with beautiful views

Fantastic trail for the family. Our 13 and 11 year old children handled it fine. Scenic forest and ocean shoreline views were amazing. Recommend taking water/trail snacks. Walked 12,000 steps and climbed 75 stories on apples’s health app. Trail can be quite slippery if damp.

We couldn’t find the trail, but I’m sure we could’ve if we hadn’t been distracted by the gobs and gobs of whales! Absolutely gorgeous site overall.

I'm not sure that it's really supposed to be a trail at all. If you start at Sam Case Elementary and go around the bar crossing the gravel road it quickly turns into some steep descent followed by a pretty gnarly climb. I'm in better than ok shape and it's a good challenge even if it's short. After you finish, the beginning of the bay to coast trail is just a hundred or so meters away which runs all the way to Agate Beach wayside.

We hiked this trail on father's day and it was very busy, but not over crowded, fairly easy walking, my 5yr old almost did the whole trail on his own, so it's very kind friendly. loved the view of the falls and the pools at the bottom to play in the water and cool off.

Don’t let the scary reviews keep you from this hike. You need to use common sense but I never felt overly exposed or scared. We were able to see whales from both the top and from almost the top. We did the loop trail and were on the road for over half the hike down. We decided to jump on the beach and enjoyed the waves to complete our loop. The view is incredible with minimal effort. Don’t miss this

Easy, beautiful hike.

Awesome place to take friends and family

Awesome hike. If you’re afraid of heights don’t do this hike and whine about how dangerous it is in the review.

Gorgeous hike! Yes, know your comfort level and your limits. We went to the top along the ride and up the middle, and I'm pregnant :-) I crab crawled back down to be extra careful though, but it was beautiful and worth it.

Really enjoyed this hike! Didn’t go all the way around the loop due to hiking in my birks (felt too sketchy on the cliff side). There is a really great view point about halfway in the hike. It’s at the first clearing to the left.

I wouldn’t recommend going to the top. It’s a straight drop down on both sides with loose rocks.
