A decent little hike if you want to get away from the crowds at Lake Agnes. Incredible views of Lake Louise and if you want, you can get a pic of mirror lake and lake Louise in the same frame. Just watch your step.

It's an easy hike that follows the river. I don't think we ever found Moulton Falls but we continued and saw Lucia Falls. There are zero signs on the trail. I took the advice of previous people and took a picture of the map, though that didn't help us. I'll give it 3 stars for being easy, having pretty enough views of the river the whole time. However, it's crowded and the falls remain a mystery to me.

A great place for an easy hike. Just don't go in the summer if you don't like crowds.

I did my first mountain bike here this afternoon. And it was awesome. Fairly easy trail but lots of fun. I went up to the falls day picnic area and turned around which is under 5 miles. Need to yield with peds and horseback riders but everyone has food etiquette and friendly. I plan to do the trail again and go even further.

Good hike

Gorgeous river and waterfalls!

We did this hike in early May and it was probably our favorite hike of the trip. Take it all the way to the top--you won't regret it!! The beginning is busy and pretty heavily trafficked but it thins out as you continue onward. Have fun!!

Defaulted to this trail after seeing how rutted the road to Silver Star/Ed's Loop is.

I was on this trail Saturday 1/5/19 and came across what appeared to be large cat scat (essentially a very large hair ball) that was very fresh. There were also older piles along the way. I'm not well versed on identifying scat but it was enough for me to turn back. Please be careful.

Super easy out and back. Went on a crisp January day, damp and overcast with about a dozen people on the mostly paved trail with me.

This was my First Hike Ever! Absolutely Gorgeous! Fell in Love with hiking to the point I decided to permanently moving to Washington. The path is spectacular with a variety of of stone paths and wooden stairs. Wooden bridge is a bit narrow only one direction of traffic at a time.

Breathe taking views, especially at the sunset, late December trail was messy and slippery

I’m a rookie at trails and enjoyed this.

It’s a really beautiful trail. Great for an easy walk with kids or dogs. I would have given 5 stars, but the gunfire really is what ruins the ambiance. Nothing against guns, but they’re just not what you’re looking to hear when you’re going for a walk in the woods (or at least we aren’t). Otherwise it’s awesome.

Love this trail and I’m lucky it’s right in my backyard

This was a really nice hike with incline. The waterfalls are gorgeous

The falls were gorgeous and the hike along the water was relaxing. Not technical, pretty easy

This was a great trail. There was only a little snow in some spots, and we only saw only one other person. The waterfalls were spectacular!

beautiful, although short. make sure to get your visitors permit (the gas station sells it) as you can't buy it at the trailhead.

Did this hike a while back. Did not disappoint, very beautiful.

Just do the bottom half of the trail.

Great hike, serene setting and landscape.

Great hike! It’s a long haul to the falls, but completely worth it!!

Road to the trailhead is very well maintained for a forest service road. There are a few pot holes but they’re more like speed bumps and easily avoided, my Honda Civic had no issues getting there if you’re worried. Trail to the base of the falls is easy and short, if you want more of a challenge hiking to the upper trail #152 has some steeper sections. Couldn’t really see the falls from the upper trail but found some cool camp spots with a view for backpacking.

This portion of the trail was an easy stride and full of autumn beauty! Great year round trail.

This was my first hike when I moved to Oregon in 2016. I hiked one week before the fire. I will always cherish this trail as my favorite.

Very nice hike. Not very steep, except for the short trail that takes you up to the Falls Creek Trail #152. I went up to the base of the falls and then to the viewpoint above the falls and then completed the loop and my Alltrails app recorded 6.5 miles.

We did it in mid october and the trail through the frozen lakes (mirror, agnes) was wonderful. very quiet at this period (just saw 5 people during the hike) si even better. breathtaking view of lake Louise.

loved it

Good hike! The first part until lake Agnes is a pretty popular trail, bigger and more people but once you reach lake Agnes/Tea House and start your way up to BigBeehive you will see less people and the trail becomes smaller (which I like!) The switchbacks are pretty steep on lake Agnes side, but take your time and you'll make it! Needed cleats 2 weeks ago. Nice view of Lake Louise and Little Beehive. Nice little open cabin with benches to take a break before heading down (or up for Devil's Thumb!)
