Quick, easy hike with rewarding views at the top! The hike down is the hardest part due to steepness coupled with loose rock in certain sections.

I think it belongs somewhere between easy and moderate. Decent elevation gain so does require some exertion. Muddy right now but not too bad. Pleasant to be covered by trees 90% if the trail so not too hot. Amazing view.

Very easy, great at low tide. Tide pools had really interesting marine life. Great for all skill levels.

We got poured on, which doesn't bother us. Trail was muddy but very manageable, but it is very narrow and steep drop offs in some places so be mindful when it's wet. I was surprised by the amount of people we saw. The last part of the road going in was pretty pot-holed so all the traffic was a bit of a shock. It's a spectacular hike though and the waterfall is huge. So loud sometimes you don't realize it until you get a bit away.

First time hiking a real mountain and I’m officially hooked. Went on 4/22/18 and lucked out with a very clear day. Views of Mt. Adams, Mt. Hood, Mt. Jefferson, and Mt. Rainier. Summiting was an awesome experience!!!

Great hike. Still a lot of snow on trail, so would like to do it in summer when clear, but gorgeous with the snow overlay!!

Fun hike! Still very (very) muddy, but worth it for the view! Definitely recommend going early in the day because it does get quite busy.

22 April
No snow on the trail. My wife and I were able to hike up with our infant son with no problems. I was able to get behind falls as well.
Our phone had it at 4+ miles round trip, and the signs along the trail indicate it is just over 2 miles one way, so be ready for a bit longer than 3.3 miles.

Good workout and definitely a challenge for a beginner. Great views up top. Pretty busy and kind of muddy near the top but not too bad. Careful coming down.

Everything about this hike was amazing. A bit busy for my taste but how can you resist. The falls were breathtaking!! Will highly recommend to everyone who I can.

Great views at the top!

So beautiful! Very much worth the rough drive in.

I climb it today April 21 I absolutely love the trail 100%

great views. very snowy on april 18 2018. extra gear needed to reach the top due to weather that time.

BEAUTIFUL waterfall!

This is a great hike. As others said, we parked at the white fence. It seemed like a long drive to get there so if that’s where you’re trying to park just keep going, you’ll see it eventually. The driving trail to the fence is very narrow at times, be aware of other cars that might be coming the other direction. A small suv with 4 wheel drive is necessary. We are pretty average hikers and I thought the trail was totally doable. The hardest part right now (mid-April) is how muddy and slippery it is. We saw a few families with small children in rain boots at the top of the trail when we were leaving. I wouldn’t recommend hiking with small children or dogs at this time of the year because the mud is so slipper. There are two tricky parts. When you park at the fence you need to back track on the road to find the trail (don’t go toward the fence). From the fence, there are two trails on the right side as you back track. TAKE THE 2nd trail. You’ll know you’re on the correct trail because you’ll shortly see a white sign that says “Abbey Foundation’s of Oregon”. Keep going and stay to the left when you reach the fork. You’ll know you’ve done that correct if you see another sign like the first one. There’s a portion of the hike where you will go down a hill between two fallen logs. As you get to the bottom you’ll notice a trail to the left that requires you to climb over the log and go up (don’t take that trail if you’re looking for an easier hike). Instead continue past the 2 fallen Trunks until you see the river. Take a left and follow the river all the way to the falls! If the water is high, you’ll want completely water proof shoes to walk through the river and to the big rock in front of the falls. I ended up with so much water in my boots I had to hike out in soaked shoes. Go early it gets packed around noon!

Perfect Sunday hike, a light rain and some muddy spots. But it is all well worth it when you get to the falls. Absolutely breathtaking! !

So beautiful. If you drive to the trailhead, have a good 4X4 car. I parked on crooked finger and walked all the way down. It was a long ways down, but the falls was worth it!

Wow! What an amazing view! The waterfall comes out of nowhere! People are not joking about the drive down especially if you plan on going all the way down, very large pot holes, and some areas are only wide enough for 1 car. Besides all that, the hike down is difficult but do-able and the view is so worth it !

DRIVE THE GRAVEL ROAD UNTIL YOU HIT THE WHITE GATE. my friend and i took 2 wrong trails before finding the actual trail. all in all the trail was rated appropriatly, definitely wear hiking books, and all though you can bring your dog i would not recommend. the lookout to the fall is small quarters and heavily trafficed. will probably try the tail again in the summer time!

Holy hell, the falls are beautiful. I’m glad I had a good SUV. it definitely saved us a lot of time. The trail itself was difficult and very muddy. The ropes came in handy. It was so worth it. BEAUTIFUL!!!

Great views, easy hike, beautiful roaring waterfall

Definitely worth the work for a short trip. Ice in quite a few spots still but easy to manage with just boots. Can't wait to try this one again after the snow and be able to get behind the falls.

Got lost here! Definitely catch a ride up and down the gravel road. AWD and lift kit may be your best bet.

If you hike the loop, eventually the trail splits. Someone has placed logs across the trail you should NOT take.

This is legitimately the most beautiful waterfall I have ever seen. We went up here yesterday and it was such a lovely day and it was early enough in the season that it wasn't near as crowded as the other time I came here last summer, which was perfect. Highly recommend this to everyone!!!
