Good 3-4 hour loop with decent elevation.

Excellent loop, hard to beat for something so close to the city center. Trail was a bit icy so be sure to bring some spikes during winter months. A few trails branch off of the east side of the loop, looking forward to exploring those on future visits.

Such a beautiful hike on a crisp winter morning I recommend this hike to anyone! So many beautiful waterfalls

Definitely need spikes up until about Mirror Lake and from there on out. Many people on snowshoes and in spikes. People with nothing were slipping a lot. Icy and well packed. Going up TDH mountain was relatively easy, this is my first time doing this hike in winter but second overall. Windy as all hell at the top! Sky was clear and Hood was shining!

great family hike. can be muddy at times and slippery in some spots. still a great and beautiful hike.

Did this during a wind storm on 7 December 2018. Reversing the route gave a much steeper ascent and is not recommend. Some of the trail is still beautiful, some waterfalls are amazing, but the essential beauty of several segments was lost to the fire.

Beautiful park.

Beautiful forestry and an amazing waterfall.

Nice and easy walk. Nice and clean trail with a few falls. It's cool to be able to go behind the last one and just listen.

Awesome trail! So beautiful. We had a 2 &7 yr old with us do it took 5 hours. The last hour was dark. But really beautiful.

Did this hike in November. Very beautiful views and not too much work to get there.

Got there later in the afternoon so thankfully we missed all the tourist hikers.
Great for my 2 year old but again just too popular of a site to go more than once every few years.

pretty falls

Beautiful views will do this again! Went in October good temperature and clear view

Completed 1.4.19. Wayyyy too many tourists at the falls for my liking. On a nice day, I assume they’re at the top too since you can drive there. The hike itself is a grind, but good if you want hours of solitude. I didn’t see anyone for several miles at a time once I got a mile or two in. Zero exposure, so you don’t have a sense of your elevation until the very end. Heavy fire damage throughout, which was heartbreaking, and zero visibility at the top due to weather, although I knew that going in. Significant snow the last 2+ miles. Yaktrax helped. Take food if you’re going out and back. It’s a long hike! A good move I think would be to do it as an end to end, go early morning on a clear day from the falls before the tourists arrive and have someone pick you up at the end.

Best Kept Secret in the Bend City Park System - especially for bird watching and old growth forest & must if you visit in Central Oregon

Great hike, tons of waterfalls. Beautiful scenery despite scorched landscape at certain points.

completed on 12/31
This trail is closer to 14.0mi out&back. It features all 4 seasons, starts off at Multnomah Falls with some sunshine and some breeze, next part of trail is all about slushy ground and many creeks running through (in several areas, I had to utilize my minimal knowledge of rock climbing and tree grabbing to get myself across the running water without getting completely wet). Later, for about 1.5mi, the ground/rocks/fallen trees/log bridges were frosted over with fresh layer of slippery ice. And for the remainder of ascending up, trail was covered with up-to 3 inches of snow.
I was hoping to trail run parts of this trail, but didn't feel safe for most of the trail. I would totally recommend to any adventurers out there! It is a beautiful hike with amazing views❤

Beautiful beautiful hike!

Trail is currently closed!!! Tried to take the pup here today but it’s all gated off!

Wish I could rate this trail better but the road to it is closed right now

Loved it but not as easy as it’s cited. The down can be tricky when wet and the back up is tough going unless you’re in good shape. Wanted to take my mom but there’s no way she could have done it so for that reason I wouldn’t call it an “easy” hike.

Alltrails has the wrong explanation of this trail. This is actually the Larch Mountain Trail of Oregon (Washington State has their own Larch Mt. trail) and it is not an Ainsworth Park trail. It’s west of that park. You can either begin at Multnomah Falls, going uphill first or 7 miles following Multnomah Creek or you can start at the top and go downhill first for 7 miles. Either way, if you’re doing an out and back, you’re going to be going uphill for 7 miles. If you do it as an out and back, I recommend starting at Multnomah Falls, so you can go downhill on the second half. Actually, this would be a great two car hike if you just want to start at the top and go downhill to Multnomah Falls. This way, you won’t have to worry about going back uphill. You can drive back up on Larch Mountain Road. But, you will have to do this during summer or early fall as Larch Mt. usually has snow and the road to the parking lot closes for the season. If you want a short hike, I would recommend you hike a mile up past Multnomah Falls as there a few falls that are worth checking out. But if you want a good workout do the whole thing. There are areas still damaged from the forest fire from 2017, so it can be an interesting hike with a PNW clear and clean creek (which is more like a river) travelling heartily towards the main falls. Although, I ran this trail, it’s not the best trail runners’ trail unless you have very good stamina and are willing to run through snow near the summit.

Went this last summer and had a blast! Very pretty falls and not too long of a hike!

Beautiful and easy enough for a family. I captured vid with my drone. Here's a link to it.

Great trail, good challenge and great scenery. I recommend starting in the direction of Multnomah Falls, that way you can finish with fewer crowds of people.

Great winter hike !!

Loved it. Waterproof shoes were a must since waterfalls actually passed over the trails (day after rain in December). Absolutely gorgeous and not too busy, but not entirely isolated - I did it alone so it was nice to occasionally see some people.

I'd been to this trail several times during the summer, but never during the winter, and wow... go during the winter months! The trails aren't as packed, and the waterfalls are flowing with so much more water! Bring a waterproof jacket though because when you go under the falls the mists are so strong that you may get soaked. Excellent hike that I will keep going back to.

Absolutely amazing in every way, even when muddy and wet it was still fun to trail run. Just get ready to stop a lot, it’s breathtaking all throughout. I enjoyed starting at the North parking lot (not where this map leads you to) and running clockwise.
