Went and hiked out to the waterfall with my wife on 4 Jan. Trail was muddy is some spots, but nothing severe. The suspension bridge was fun to cross and I enjoyed the lower view of the fall, which is going strong this time of year.

The hike was short and easy, even with the optional North Loop trail. Boots recommended.

Beautiful easy hike. The elevation is gradually and comes on at a steady pace. Took my wife and kids. Ages 5 and 6. My one year old went into my Phil and teds carrier and onto my back. Highly recommended.

Nice New Years Day hike. More hikers out than expected. Trail's in great shape for an Oregon winter. As noted by others, some trail markers hard to find.

What a glorious hike. Exactly what I was looking for.

When driving down the forest road keep going past the nature conservatory trail, and you will find the Hart’s cove parking lot and trail head (this road is closed Jan 1 until July).
Easyish hike in. Beautiful old growth forest. Barking seals. You do have to pass a little creek and will probably get your feet wet. The top is exquisite. The hike back is more difficult.
What a wonderful trail and experience. I will go back this summer when it’s back open.

lots of side trails and exploring opportunities.

Beautiful river and multiple waterfalls all along the trail. Beautiful, short, easy hike.

This hike was basically easy all the way until the switchbacks at the very end. At that point, I thought I saw Jesus coming for me. The mud on this trail is no joke, and the creek crossing was legit since I went on Dec 30, just days before the gate to the trailhead is locked for 7 months. The old growth trees are impressive, and the view of the cove and Chitwood Falls at the bottom are otherworldly. There were loads of fungi, but not too many critters out, most likely due to the time of year I hiked this. If you’re lucky you can hear the seals barking in the cove, but I didn’t actually see them. I highly recommend this hike, but be prepared for the steepness at the end. Good shoes are a must if you’re going to tackle this hike in the winter.

Gorgeous views with the chance of seeing elk along the way.

Amazing!

One of my favorite hikes in Oregon!! Absolutely beautiful from the top. Not too hard. There were a bunch of elk at the top too.

Hiked in light rain and the trail held nicely. The North Loop was in good shape also. The approach road was easy in a rental sedan: paved all the way and about 16' wide. That said, I wouldn't try to get a camper up here: tight turns, low branches, and very little turnaround space at the trailhead. Loved this hike.

easy 2.6 mile hike. highly recommend it. the waterfall was super pretty and the bridge above it was very neat!

Beautiful, went in rainy December and the trail was in good shape.

Stunning ocean and hill views for probably over half the hike, and the rest is lush, green and also beautiful. With all the footwork between the steps/erosion control, roots, and narrow path near the top this hike ends up feeling longer than it is - but totally worth it.

went today and we were the only people out. kinda chilly and a bit icy but we warmed up while walking. it was so beautiful and we plan to come back during spring/ summer! definitely easy for all skill levels!

Easy fun trail

This is a nice, easy trail with a great view of the waterfall!

This is an easy kid and pet friendly hike

Its a great hike, i would definitely recommend this hike.
Different type of hike going down first and coming back up is no joke. Beautiful view definitely worth it.

I did this trail yesterday. It was full of fog and very mystical among the huge trees. I'm not a great hiker, but this wasn't too hard. There are plenty of places the trail flattens out to give you a break. The ocean views along the Oregon Coast Trail are beautiful. We only passed maybe 5 other parties the whole time. I'd do it again.

Suspension bridge great bonus.

A great short walk, that is absolutely beautiful. Loved the many moss covered trees over hanging the cascading falls and bubbling brooks, well as calm pools of water that greet you on this serene walk through nature’s backdoor. Can’t wait to go back again in the winter wonderland and beauty of springtime.

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.
