Pro-tip: show-up early and you'll like have the entire trail to yourself. Ran into tons of newts, so watch your step! This is a quick trail and a fun option on your way to or from the coast, fairly short and sweet.

Great views. Perfect for a hike with the pups.

Pretty muddy most of the year so bring some good hiking boots and an extra towel if you have a 4 legged companion! Otherwise, the views are spectacular are more than you could ever ask for a hike under 5 miles and essentially no elevation again.

Easy fun trail

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

If you start at Indian Beach- all the best views are basically at the beginning.

This is an easy kid and pet friendly hike

Really fun and fairly easy trail! I will say that the second half of the trail becomes very, very rooted. I went the day after it rained and it was very slick and muddy in some spots, so make sure you bring a pair of sturdy shoes that are waterproof.

I only saw a couple of other people on the way out (started at 10:30am Sat), but ran into many groups of people coming back. Parking lot was full when I left at 1pm.

Also, beware of the lifting chain link on the trail if you bring a dog or small child. Some parts of the links were lifted and could have cut a paw or tripped a kid. Would not suggest letting your dog off leash, although many people did let their dog roam free.

Overall a nice hike with great views. Recommend getting there early and coming prepared for mud.

Fantastic hike. Unbeatable views of the great Pacific. We saw jelly fish and sea lions! My fiancé completed this entire trail 6 months pregnant! The roots are intense at times but it’s not bad if you take it slow. We were blessed with perfect weather! Here is a video of our hike - https://youtu.be/rkmfI9EKhFg

Did this in March and the views are to die for. So many whales!!! Gorgeous views. Can be muddy and lots of exposed roots.

Suspension bridge great bonus.

Lush green trail. About 30 minutes in you get a spectacular view of the coast! Definitely want to do more of this trail.

Go left if you want all downhill on return trip to Indian beach. Great views.

Great trail with moderate up and down. Full trail closed but there is a way through if careful.

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.

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).

The trail was great and well kept up. I walk with a cane, so it was pretty simple. (We didn't make it the whole way) However, we went back by the way of the "Clay Pits" it was very steep, lots of tree roots, and stairs (made for a giant) it would have been nice if the trail would have been marked.

Beautiful view

This trail was great! Some ocean views along the way and a superb ocean view (108* view) at the end of the trail. Some parts were pretty muddy and some of the big root sections had little ponds of water so I was glad I wore my extra tuff tall boots. Brought my dog with me and she loved the trail too :-) when we got to the end of the trail it was sunny and warm, felt like summer! Fun trail and definitely would recommend!

My tracker data said it’s actually 5.5 miles but elevation gain is right on. Great hike.

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 :)

Very short trail, part closest to waterfall is closed and from the Permanent look of the fence it won’t be open. Good if you want a little walk (round trip not more than half mile) and to see a beautiful waterfall from afar.

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

Wear sturdy shoes. The trail is muddy and uneven. There aren't any guardrails along the cliff edges. Not for kids or unleashed dogs.

Previous reviews are accurate. There’s a boatload of slippery mud, but I went during a drier spell, so it really wasn’t too terribly bad. And there’s the tree roots. So many tree roots. I definitely felt the elevation gain at the end, but this is a doable hike. The view was gorgeous along the trail, but at the end, all I saw was fog. That being said, I’d still highly recommend this trail. Critters spotted along the way: one snake, one banana slug, and a couple chipmunks. This is one of those trails where everyone goes, so be prepared for lots of people and lots of dogs.

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.

Nice hike. Was a bit muddy in places, so I’m glad to have done it after a dry weather stretch. Can’t imagine how slippery and messy it’ll be in the middle of the rainy season! Great views! Couple of scary drop off cliffs, so keep an eye on your kids and pups. Lots of people and dogs. Some uphill and some downhill, but overall quite manageable, even for someone in not great shape :)
