To Hike!! Map

wonderful trail, wish we budgeted more time to explore more at the top, it really is one of those hikes that starts off pretty mellow and then provides more and more amazing sights as you near the end

I did this hike on my birthday vacation and the views didn't disappoint! It had been a while since I had been hiking, and this wasnot only beautiful, but a great workout as well! I wouldn't consider this a hard hike, but definitely moderately difficult. Especially for those who aren't used to climbing hills. Otherwise, this was fantastic! Btw... my phone clocked this at 6.2 miles.

I read a lot of reviews of this place before going. Several of them mention how insane the hills are and it is not for someone who is out of shape.
I'm not in shape. I only recently started trying improve my cardio after quitting smoking. by recent I mean within the last two weeks. Yes, the hills were pretty steep and long. but I didn't have any problem with it. I never felt like it was kicking my ass at all. I stopped once in a while to take a breather and get some water, but I didn't truthfully have any issue.
The journey was great in with a wonderful view and great out leaving me feeling rewarded for my effort.

Nice hike in the fall to see all the leaves changing colors. Waterfall was bigger than I expected. Just wished you could get closer.

NO DOGS ALLOWED!! We did not know until we drove an hour to get there

nice nature walk. part of the trail is closed. view of waterfalls was great!

We hiked this trail on father's day and it was very busy, but not over crowded, fairly easy walking, my 5yr old almost did the whole trail on his own, so it's very kind friendly. loved the view of the falls and the pools at the bottom to play in the water and cool off.

Great little hike for any age. My kids age 3 and 5 loved it. The hike follows the river my kids loved finding ducks along the way.

Be ready to get your workout in! Definitely worth the journey. Be advised the way back is mostly uphill!

Easy, beautiful hike.

Road is blocked by huge trucks blowing out gross diesel smoke :( guess they are working on road but it’s not at all the peaceful forest experience I drove here for. Can’t walk or drive past and the trailhead is 3/4 mile past them

Take the loop left (glacier trail first) for awesome views of he mountains. Otherwise you hike down with them at your back. Awesome trail not to steep but a steady hill up/down.

Absolutely beautiful. Did an overnight hike - went south on the PCT and camped at Eileen Lake. First day on the Obsidian Trail featured bright blue skies and gorgeous sun. The next day was classic NW fog, mist, and moody skies. It was like an entirely different trail. Both days were stunning. Pretty easy hike - no major climbs! Spooky burn areas - very surreal!

Awesome place to take friends and family

I’ve hiked to the falls 3 times now, never been disappointed. Go in early September for less snow, more wildlife/LESS MOSQUITOS!

Great little spot, many do not know about.

First and foremost this wildlife refuge It's an awesome getaway. It's a great place to walk, run, ride bicycles, ride skate boards and long boards. It's has a good dog park, and some pretty good fishing holes too if you're into that. It's just a awesome park to visit.

Overall, the hike was amazing. I only rate this a 3/5 since it’s a longer distance from Portland than other beautiful coast hikes, and the geotagged trailhead on AllTrails is wrong. AllTrails will likely take you to a fork in the road—but drive 1.5 miles farther on the left fork. I didn’t find the ascent difficult, but I can imagine it can be depending on the weather/experience of the hikers. Bring a nice lunch to enjoy the view at the meadow, it was awesome to emerge from the rainy and cloudy forest to a sunny coastal meadow.

Drive out on one lane road was tricky. But well worth it. Trail was easy. Nice waterfall.

Lots of sea lions barking, you can also see them swimming at the end. The cove is super cool. We opted to track over to the right of the grassy knoll down onto the rocks and sit for a couple hours. Saw lots of sea lions, birds and even a whale throw it's tail up! Traffic was light and we didn't see a whole lot of people. It did kick our asses

Such a unique trail! Be sure to wear hiking boots!

A great place to go on an educational walk with your kids... There are lots of interesting critters and wild growing plants to look at. Its also just a fun place to go when you want a quiet walk through in the woods. The trails can get a bit confusing but once you get used to it, it's not too hard to find your way around.

One lane road to parking at the head of the trail. Trail was nice and easy, perfect for beginners and kids.

Easy hike with beautiful scenery. We took the North Loop headed in to add more mileage but backed out using the regular path. The trail is managed well with some tree roots you have to be mindful of on the walking path. The inclines are easy with just enough intensity to get you breathing deeply. We went midweek in August in the middle of the afternoon and it was busy. The bridge is rad and I expected it to sway and bounce more than actually did. We drove to the trail head from Lincoln City on a 12 mile stretch of road that was narrow, winding, and had a few switchbacks. Drive carefully!

This is a nice easy hike with a beautiful Suspension bridge that overlooks the falls. We drove in by the Southern route. The drive treats you to old growth forest and giant ferns.

Beautiful trail and a beautiful viewpoint. Saw lots of wildlife. Will kick your ass on the way back up though.

lost cell coverage driving up the mountain to the trail head.beautiful place.would go again.
