Fun trail. Strong climb. Well identified and guarded. Sturdy boots recommended and poles for those not-so-sure footed. Saw all 5 mountains at the top with even some high altitude cloud cover. The last third feels like you are in Scotland or Wales scenery wise.

Awesome place to take friends and family

I never get tired of this trail, it changes with the seasons. The Vine Maple is turning red now and there are a few wildflowers still blooming.

For a half-day fun near Seaside/Portland area, definitely do this hike. I did it with my partner, middle September and there were maybe five couples and a few solo hikers we encountered.

To get to the parking, it is 7 miles of long and windy, but well paved roads.

The hike is beautiful with the hardest part being the incline at the end. It is slightly deceiving because you hike up one mountain to view people at the top of the real peak. But at the top it is an unbelieveable site with ocean view, the state of Washington, and the mountains of northeastern Oregon.

Wore sneakers with good traction, did not need full hiking gear.

Side note, there are picnic tables scattered throughout so could just be a fun picnic hike as well.

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.

This hike kicked my butt in the hot weather. Was worth it though! The drive is a little rough.

Drive out on one lane road was tricky. But well worth it. Trail was easy. Nice waterfall.

Such a wonderful hike. I think the last half mile is probably the most difficult part, but so worth the effort and sweat!

I really love this Trail. Great canopy, beautiful Lush Greenery, elevation, beautiful sights and sounds. Enjoy.

A pretty easy hike through old growth forest with views of the Pacific Ocean. The end point is worth it, only wished we had packed some snacks and wine to enjoy while there. Heading back we also took the short trail down to the beach and watched the surfers with the fog rolling in. Loved it!!

Breathtaking beauty on an easy hike.

A beautiful trail with great views! The trail is a tad bit challenging with the number of roots crowding the path. Would highly recommend going during the summer time!

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.

Amazing views for a shorter hike.

Loved it! Was worth the 2.5 hour drive

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!

Sunset hikes at Saddle is a must! It is very challenging but it’s definitely worth the trek.

Favorite. Hike. Ever.

One lane road to parking at the head of the trail. Trail was nice and easy, perfect for beginners and kids.

Easy hike with beautiful scenery. We took the North Loop headed in to add more mileage but backed out using the regular path. The trail is managed well with some tree roots you have to be mindful of on the walking path. The inclines are easy with just enough intensity to get you breathing deeply. We went midweek in August in the middle of the afternoon and it was busy. The bridge is rad and I expected it to sway and bounce more than actually did. We drove to the trail head from Lincoln City on a 12 mile stretch of road that was narrow, winding, and had a few switchbacks. Drive carefully!

This is a nice easy hike with a beautiful Suspension bridge that overlooks the falls. We drove in by the Southern route. The drive treats you to old growth forest and giant ferns.

This is our favorite non waterfall trail so far. Not far from Lincoln City this trail takes you through some old growth forest before you emerge into open rolling fields. There are a few plateaus that are perfect for a rest or a picnic. The views are stunning. Take plenty of water as the elevation gain is fantastic. Parking is good and has a few vault toilets.

Completed this hike with some friends. it's a bit difficult but only one you get to all of the chain fence looking portion covering up the gravel, I assume to keep the rocks from creating rockslides. I highly recommend wearing something with a thicker sole as a lot of the metal fencing will be torn creating little spikes on the ground. This trail is officially dog friendly but I would not recommend taking your pup on this trail, especially without booties on. This trail is entirely to dangerous for dogs, the chance for injury is kind of high right now. Shoes with good grip and at least 3 liters of water for first time goers is recommended. Please note that this trail, especially towards the end has nearly no shade. Plan accordingly. Have fun and be safe :)

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

I absolutely loved this hike! For the most part it was a flat trail. I didn’t even realize we were going up until we got to a lookout that showed all of the trees in front and in the back showed the short sand beach. It was amazing and we were in awe the entire time!
