Love the lake and waterfalls. Trail is a stair-climber but very well maintained with no trail junctions (easy navigation).

Beautiful hike. Absolutely gorgeous!

Gorgeous short hike, def go to both upper and lower falls- worth it!

All I can say is that this hike was incredible! We woke up at 2am from seattle and got to the trailhead around 4am to get to the lookout for sunrise. The trail is moderate but opens out onto this plain and then the trail is steep and a little rocky up to the lookout. We got to the top right at sunrise and it was gorgeous!!

Great, well defined trail. Spectacular views of Crater Lake. It was challenging due to the elevation but there were plenty of view points to stop and rest. We did this in September and the weather was clear and cool. Highly recommend this trail!

We were here on 09/13 which was a overcast day. I felt like this hike took a lot of work and time up for very little payoff. To start the road was under construction so within the first few miles we were stopped at a sign saying road closed for an hour. Talked to some previously waiting cars and sounded like awhile had already elapsed. Waited maybe 20 min to continue. Then you have this unpaved road that is just so rough the whole way and has a speed limit of 25 mph. Takes about 40 minutes with lots and lots of moments you swear you will have a flat tire. The hike itself was not overly strenuous or technical but is definitely a workout at times. We only went to the falls and turned around since we knew we weren’t going to get any Mountain View’s with the weather so in total was a 4 mile trip. Then back down the rough road to wait another 30 minutes at the construction zone to leave. I think if it had been a clearer visibility day so that the hike itself had more visual payoff I wouldn’t have cared so much about the time and the travel etc but for us it was just a pretty standard forest hike with a lot of obstacles.

This hike was pretty out of the way down a winding irritating roads that never ends it seems. Also, there are a decent amount of people here so you aren’t really ever alone. This is such an absolutely magical place. We were here on 09/09 in the afternoon. Was kind of an overcast day but that didn’t have any affect on the beauty. We had binoculars on us and that made this one of my Fiancé’s favorite parts of our trip. There was a far off rock covered in seals that were jumping on and off the rock and you could see swimming around. Kind of cool to see them in the wild.

Nice, short trail with great waterfalls at the end!! Be sure to go to both the upper and lower twin falls. The lower one is the taller one that’s straight down, the upper falls turn a few times. Once you get to the bridge to see the upper falls, keep going up a bit to see the top part of them. Very beautiful.

Awesome views of Mount St. Helens! I didn’t make it all the way up to Harry’s ridge because it started raining and the clouds covered up Mount St. Helens. I’d love to go back on a clear day and try again. I highly recommend this trail!

On a clear day this is an amazing hike. We were lucky enough to have great weather and the views of mount rainier were spectacular! It definitely has some elevation so be prepared! We got there @ 9am on a weekday and only saw a few ppl on the trail .

Beautiful hike! You can hear streams and see waterfalls all throughout the hike. Get here early, the parking lot is full by 10:30 on the weekend. Lots of families and people hiking on the weekend but still did not feel crowded.

Panther Creek Falls..just FYI..we pulled & parked at rock pit...we got out of our car..checked out the Picas..went towards the asphalt ..look down "⬅️FALLS" is spray painted on the asphalt...go left then again "➡️FALLS"to the trailhead.. not much of a hike but breathtaking all the same

Great, easy, dog friendly hike. The view of the lake is beautiful, if you can tolerate the crowd. The trail is in excellent condition and there’s plenty of parking at the trailhead.

Absolutely STUNNING views of Crater Lake and the surrounding mountains. Moderately challenging and the payoff is well worth it.

I enjoyed all of the hydrangea and blackberries and harbor views during our visit in June. Nice stroll after eating.

Awesome hike!!! Beautiful scenic hike through the forest until you arrive at the gorgeous secluded beach. So glad we made the drive out to it. Really fabulous!

It’s a hard road throughout hiking. It was a challenging rather than enjoying the scenery nature offers like other hiking b/c up/ down hills hurt feet a lot. I felt I go through a hardship but resting and majestic scenery on the top after a long hard walking makes all of hardship worthy and grateful to survive from it and appreciate the beauty of nature!

This is a treasure place close to city where provides numerous benefits in order to escape from the busy noise city. You can find a hidden magic place if you want to explore with curiosity. It’s likely good for any season and you can do a good exercise in the fresh air instead of getting gym membership. Save money but boosting our spirit and body! Enjoyable several natural things throughout the pathway.

We hiked this for the first time a few weeks ago and it was BEAUTIFUL. I mean breathtaking. Not a tough hike and any spots that were a little tough were made worth it by the views. Watch out for the wasps nest at the beginning of the hike though, I got stung. Not fun. Trail is well kept up. Not a ton of bugs. A little chilly if it’s not sunny.

Amazing views of the lake all the way up.

The perfect hike. So many beautiful views and the trail was fun. We went in mid September and the weather was amazing. It took us about 2 hours, which included lots of stops for photos and taking in the scenery.

Nice hike and a decent view. But I hope you enjoy sharing the trail.

This is a very popular trail. And for good reason.

great hike up. good workout. did it with my 12 yr old son. he only complained minimally. view is absolutely gorgeous. will be doing this one again.

Beautiful hike! It's about a mile out and a mile back and very scenic the whole hike with amazing views in the middle and at the end. A little up and down, wood planks cover part of the trail with exposed tree roots on a dirt trail. Trying to be very specific for people who may have joint issues. I have trekking poles and that really helped my knees A LOT! The drive there is rather tedious.... Lots of switch backs, very long. I definitely recommend this, but this driving at night (I did) is scary.

Nice little trail to the falls with no one around. I did it fairly early in the morning. When I got to the falls I saw a Rock Chuck or also known as a Marmot by the falls. That was interesting since I've only seen a few and it was the first my dog has seen.

Totally worth it!

It was such a pretty trail with an amazing view. There are some point where the trail is steep but it’s worth it when you see the views.

Great short hike, disappointing waterfall but still nice to see

My dog and I went up this trail: and it does go up. Lol
