Stunning views, pretty steep at times. I started in Seaside and only saw one person for the first four miles. Got pretty crowded the closer I got to Indian Beach. Large portion of trail is very muddy. Definitely wear hiking boots (not shoes) as the mud is ankle deep in many places. So worth the effort.

8/12/18- Hazardous Hornets!
Fire ecology on display along Rebel Creek. The 2017 Revel Rock fire left most trees scorched but alive. The trail was apparently used by fire crews for access as some materials are still piled along trail. Otherwise this trail would likely not be open at all. Many trees continue to fall and debris rolling down hillside create new obstacles along trail.
DANGER-
About 2 miles in on Rebel Creek our dog attacked a hornets nest and turned us back. Our group of three sustained about a dozen stings while we ran away along a narrow section of trail with a steep drop.

We did this hike on our way home from camping at Odell Lake and enjoyed the reward of Goodman Creek. We did not go past Goodman Creek and it's inviting swimming hole and mini falls. There was a small campsite made at this junction, but sadly, whomever camped there felt that the forest would look much prettier with their collection of toilet paper and body waste off the side of the trail. It was approx 4 miles round trip from Hardestry Trailhead, moderate and mostly dry. Some steep inclines but mostly gradual and a pleasant hike.

I can't wait to go again! I made it to Indian Beach which was about 6.5 miles in. Yes muddy in areas yet so well worth it.

I was vacationing in Seaside and wanted to get in a good workout. The 12+ miles was amazing... as im training for the upcoming hunting season. I would recomend waterproof hiking boots...it was muddy and seemed like rainforest conditions at times. Bring some swim trunks and you can hit up Indian beach...it was a beautful sunny day when I got over there.

The correct name for this trail is "Tillamook Head Trail" -- and it is a great trail.

The trail is fairly easy but way out there. It needs to be said though—the mosquitos are no joke. They are the worst I have ever experienced. You need to deet up before you leave your vehicle and do so repeatedly on the trail. The mosquitos will be on you as soon as you exit your vehicle at Lake Timpanogas. The water is warm enough to swim in at Indigo.

attempted the Creek trail, but due to excessive burn out from the summer before, we probably only got .5 mile in. The Creek is pretty, though, and worth the stop if you come up FR19 from the south. It is still blocked from the north due to a rock slide at Cougar Reservoir.

Ran from North to South (out &; back). I would add this is a Technical course for trail runners. Moderate rating is what I would say.

Good hike! Although if tying in to Eagles rest hike, be aware that there is about a 2 mile section between the end of Goodman and start of Eagles rest. According to my William Sullivan book it is 14 miles total when combined. I didn't find this out until after second guessing my internal odometer and read my book once reaching the top of Eagles rest. Fairly difficult altogether, but well worth it. There is a cool mini fall and log bridge on Goodman and a timber hut used for old pack trains back in the day; if you continue up to the rest. That's when you know you are in track. It gets tough after the second trailhead across the road, but keep plugging. The view is well worth it from the top!

Great hike in the middle of the forest. It follows the creek and has a small waterfall. One end meets up with Eagles Rest trail. It is about 2 miles long and small incline in places. Great view of the lake and mountains.

We enjoyed this trail thru the Old Growth Willamette Forest. A little over two miles in is the Goodman creek and has a cute little waterfall and swimming hole. We took the Goodman Creek fork. Little muddy in spots but trail is in good condition. Lots of wild flowers we enjoyed this hike. Will be back to do one of the other seven hikes off this trail.

hiked to the waterfall (more like a tall rapid) yesterday. The trail was decently maintained with only a tree or two over the trail but boy was it slick and muddy in some spots. Luckily I was the only one with a decent pair of boots and didn't take any spills but my two friends weren't so lucky.

I love this area, we used to go to a couple swimming wholes just up a ways from Bedrock. Unfortunately the last decade or so has not been kind to the Fall Creek wilderness. The trail was a little over grown when we went. It was absolutely beautiful walking and seeing the river from this perspective. Great little swimming wholes that could only be accessed from the trail. We had a hard time finding the trail towards the end because of the fire. I would say it is a moderate hike.

Beautiful trail! Connects to other trails. Muddy this time of year; first 1-1.5 miles had very muddy patches. Gorgeous forest hike by the water.

Muddy this time of year but a great rainy day hike. Tons of other trails going off the same junction. Will definitely be going back to explore some of the other ones.

If elves exist, they live here.

I hiked all the way to a campground then had ro turn around cause it was getting late, beautiful water views along the way, there is a part of this trail where the forest is burned down and it burnt the bridge to cross over, if your willing to cling some steep dirty ashy hills then it's completely doable.

This is a beautiful and easy to follow trail, but very, very muddy right now. Also, the first creek you'll come to does not have a bridge, just a few large stones to step on to make your way across. (Careful, they're slick!)

This is my favorite trail year round, though it can get a bit muddy in the winter and spring. The trail offers nice views of multiple creeks.

Lots of fun. A bit muddy in spots but it’s December, it’s expected to be muddy. We went to the second foot bridge. Great way to spend the last day of 2017

The fire lookout has apparently burned down in the fires of August 2017 so sad

Loved this trail! Wish we would have had time to hike all the way to Eagles Rest!! It's so picturesque in the fall!! Great work out! We got the the gravel road and picked the trail back up for about a half mile and then turned back. Nice and quite for a Saturday!!

This is a good training hike for overnight backpacking. It goes from Salt Creek Road to Waldo Lake Road. To follow the trails you follow the Blue Arrows. Some can be kind of confusing when there are multiple arrows in the same spot, but that is usually on a hill where the trails switchback formation.
One thing to be aware of is that there is not any water at either end of the trail. There are several lakes and there is a decent creek. This creek is approximately 3 miles from the Waldo Lake Road Trail Head. It also marks where the incline increases significantly. We came back to the creek and spent the night there.

Beautiful views, serene hike, family-friendly. This is one of our favorites near Eugene!

Loved this trail! A little narrow and overgrown in some places, but beautiful scenery. The trail is definitely longer that 5.6 miles total. We turned around before the trail ended and we did 7.25 miles total.

Nothing spectacular, just a good long day hike! We started by the little store and had about 17 miles of mostly uphill hiking before a 4 mile downhill. Views were hindered by smoke as well.

Great trail! The mosquitos are bad!! Bring bug spray for sure, but the lake is worth the drive and hike. The driving directions from the app took us the "short" way which had us taking a washed out road. Came out much easier way but it took longer. Well worth it a must do ever year.

Beautiful trail! Great for a solid workout too! Kept decent pace, slowed down a bit near the end. Made it to the burn and back on about 2.5 hours. About 5.5 miles in, there is a bit of overgrowth and a few trees down, but seem easy to climb over if you want to keep going. Will definitely do this again!
