Great short hike when visiting Lake Crescent, my family has been coming here for more than 40 years. The old growth is awesome and the falls are quite pretty. Great for kids but keep them close after crossing Barnes Creek. There are several log bridges with simple handrails and steep drop offs near the falls. Saw a child rush across log bridge, slip and fall into ravine below. Banged up with bloody nose but not seriously hurt.

Fantastic. Excellent short and easy trail to a stunning powerful waterfall. Beautiful hike through the forest leading to the waterfall.

Easy trail with a beautiful waterfall at the end. Slightly crowded.

Easy trail with an impressive waterfall at the end. You'll definitely want your camera to capture the beauty of the path and the falls. We walked past the falls a bit to see more of the little river upstream. It's a great area to settle in and do some meditation and get your nature on!

Biked this trail 7-16-2018. Not much traffic on a Monday mid-day. We have hybrid bikes, skinny tires would be a problem. Tunnel is no problem, lights not needed. Eastern half of trail is packed rock or dirt, western half is paved. There was a short section mid-trail where the dirt trail became narrow and close to the edge, as inexperienced trail riders we walked our bikes through this, otherwise an easy ride. The paved half was a slight grade uphill but easy biking because the grade is so gradual. On the return just for fun we coasted the first four miles without pedaling! Entire trip took about 3 1/2 hours including a delightful picnic on the lake.

Great trail for a easy day hike. Take the trail to the side of the tunnel for bridge access. Tons of access points to jump in the lake and cool off on a hot summer day.

Cool historical facts panel. Get some rose at the lodge!

Easy and rewarding trail. Falls are a cool 3 horse tail falls. We continued on for a bit to love rd s lane trail, which was pretty. Though pretty much everything in that part of the world is.

Fun hike and great falls! It's easy too!

Amazing trail. Giant trees along the route but very easy hike. A couple nice viewpoints of the waterfall.

The trail kind of keeps going into a well established but sketchy trail to a set of upper falls. Be very careful if you do that section though as it gets a bit slippy and really close to the edge. Not an official part of the trail.

Beautiful, but the swimming area draws a crowd. Definitely worth a visit for an easy stroll against a gorgeous backdrop.

Industrial area with a sidewalk to a jetty beach. Nothing special.

By far my favorite day in ONP! These falls are a site to see. Don’t miss this one!

Short hike to the falls, but beautiful and well worth it!

Short trail, good for all level of hikers.

Although many may go for the view of the falls at the end, don't forget to take in the views on the way there. There are alot of neat sights to see such as the trees and moss on your way to the falls. I would consider this trail heavily trafficked.

The short trip is so worth the beauty but it does have its difficulty for those less experienced or out of shape. I did see people with their kids though. Views can be spectacular even if you know that the main attraction is a bridge over a waterfall. It still ends up being so much more.

Super easy and a great view

It was awesome. I remember it was so dark in the rain forest at night you couldn't see your hand right in front of your eyes.

Beautiful trail and awesome fall.

One of the best falls I have seen! Super easy trail

Short and easy. Beautiful falls. Make it part of a full day of mini-hikes and plan on living wet.

super fun! make sure you bring a swim suit and take a jump off the cliff or bridge! great summer day hike!

Great easy hike, a little climbing over a downed tree, but the falls are just beautiful. Lots of gorgeous pics of moss covered rocks with water flowing over.

Super easy hike, great views. Part of the trail higher up past the falls is snowed out this time of year.

Super easy hike, great view of the falls.

Great hike. beautiful lush greenery and creeks along the way. there is a large tree in the way so go around it. falls are roaring this time of the year
