Trails level surfaces and well maintained so little risk of tripping when looking up at trees.

The hike was pretty nice, but the signs weren’t very helpful, and we were expecting to see at least some flowers from the reviews, but unfortunately didn’t see any. It was a pretty leisurely hike, however and the different trees with their labels was definitely a nice addition. All around worth the experience.

A fun, easy hike. Went here for a first date with my boyfriend

As of now, the old highway is closed due to the Sept 2017 fire that burned though. The view of the waterfall is gorgeous but i does get really crowded. Was able to hike up to the bridge, but any further hiking was closed off.

The trail is super short and currently closed. Not a bad trail but the bride and waterfall get very crowded as the day rolls on. I recommend going early. Right bow everything is fenced off, I would wait until the trail is open and the area has had some chance to regrow after these fires

Quick but worth it. stunning views, way too busy

Great falls to see if you haven’t check it out before. Crowded with tourist but it is a sight to see and enjoy. Many of the trails are closed off due to the fire from 2017.

Steeper than expected, but great off leash dog park at the top and amazing views of multiple mountains on a clear day.

Beautiful. Sad it was closed at the end of the bridge. Hopefully it will be open next time. Lots of people too.

Beautiful views and falls. Well marked and paved. Was bummed the trail was closed at the bridge. Still worth seeing the falls. Parking was a breeze because we went early.

Many options in the arboretum trail system and connects to the Wildwood Trail for many miles of hiking. Best in spring for flowers, but then can be muddy. Fall colors also can be spectacular. Parking can be a problem on a nice day.

Well paved and easy walk up to the bridge. Well maintained.

Easy trail, well paved, quite a bit of incline. The river that flows into the waterfall at the top is very fun to play in. The water is nice and cold to cool you off after the hike.

The waterfall itself is magnificent, and the bridge adds a unique vantage point and looks pretty cool in photos too. I gave it 3 stars because unless you come super early or super late, you’re going to be with hundreds of other people. If you can manage to come when there’s little to no crowds, it’s easily a 5 star waterfall.

Love it . Easy but beautiful

We visited today with our two-year-old. While the hike above/after the bridge is closed, we had a nice quarter-ish mile walk up to the bridge, which is a main viewing point of the falls. Had a kid in a carrier backpack going up the hill, so the round trip was brief, but still made us break a little sweat. Uphill walk but nicely paved. Expect a crowd on the bridge. Parking lot leads right to the falls, so you can’t miss it. Only giving four starts bc main hike was closed and the first viewpoint should be marked as a separate east hike.

Great hike when you're itching to go out, but don't have time to leave the city. Head on up see the famous view of Portland from Council Crest.

Went early in the morning, less crowded. Fantastic view from top. Lots of switchbacks.

Great city park. Good for trail running.

nice and well marked simple and relaxing break from the city

one way small trails part of the way with a couple cross streets. overall wonderful with good incline!

WARNING: Too busy as we were passing through. Exit 28 currently does not go through to the lodge. The road is closed. We heard from others that the bridal veil falls we stopped at we’re just as pretty, but not as tall.

I run this trail several times a week year round in combination with adjacent loops. One of the Crown Jewels in Portland’s Park System. Try connecting this to the Council Crest Park loop if you have time for a true “I heart PDX” workout!

Was hoping to do the hike to the top of the falls, but it was still closed off from the fire. The short quarter mile walk up to the bridge is easy. It was crowded on the bridge but beautiful falls!

Beautiful falls, easy to see but super crowded.... We went on a weekday morning and still had to wait to get into the bridge. Glad we saw it... But wouldn't do it again

Did the 1.8 out and back. Beautiful waterfall, pretty busy. Top portion of the trail (6 mi) closed.

Was a bit Confusing but we will definitely be going Because there are many things to do around that area. We will be going back tomorrow to explore all the other areas we didn't get to explore today.

Fun little hike. Pretty. Short, but fairly steep so I felt like I got some exercise, too.

Still closed above the bridge.
