Beautiful waterfalls along an easy trail. Surprisingly pristine for the amount of traffic.

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.

Beautiful moss covered everything with varied terrain. A great place test out some gear or break in new boots due to the varying terrain. I experienced gravel, dirt, water over rocks, moss covered paths, inclines, declines, lightly showered with water from waterfalls, etc.
Waterfalls of all shapes and sizes can be seen from varying angles and directly behind.
This includes some of the smaller day trails; definitely worth experiencing.
Plenty of parking available; five dollar parking for the day at south trail. Also, there is a picnic area, small cafe, and restrooms at the south trail entrance. There's some parking at the north trail, not nearly as much as at south trail. There is a single privy at north trail also.
Definitely recommend if in the area. Not to be missed.

BEAUTIFUL waterfall!

Beautiful and moderate hike. It was worth to hike 10 miles. It rained and we were equipped. Wear waterproof hiking shoes, raincoat, and bring plenty of water and protein bars. We hiked this trail in March 2017.

Falls, falls and 8 more falls. This is one of the premier locations in Oregon for waterfalls per square mile. If you love waterfalls, a good moderate hike and Oregon greenery, this is a must see. Giant waterfalls all along the trail with some opportunities to follow the trail behind the falls. Great photo ops, and spots to stop, relax, and maybe eat some lunch. The only negative is the popularity of this State park. Lots of people on trail and many out of towners. Good excuse to meet some new people though. If you aren't into that, hit the trail early to avoid the crowds.

The Oneonta Falls are CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE due to the massive Columbia River Gorge fire of 2017. Please check the link below for updates.

quite a bit busier than i was expecting, even after reading other reviews, but there is plenty of parking.

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.

plenty of paths to choose from
plenty of sites to see
close to Salem
decent amount of people
but most are decent

Oregon’s finest trail besides the crowds!

Beautiful hike. Awesome little log buildings with a cafe and fire place. Lots of people, and some trash on the ground throughout the hike. If you only have 2 days to live, do this hike before you die. Promise. 撚

Beautiful walk even in the rain!

This trail was fantastic. The views were gorgeous. The trail was an easy walk which, although a little wet, was wide and flat. There were little to no roots and my 3 kids loved it. The youngest is 6 and they weren't even tired afterwards.

Great flow after a rain on snow event made this mid March hike truly epic. The falls on this hike are impressive from beginning to end. Easy to moderate hike, mid week is best for avoiding the crowds. Good coffee and food at the lodge

Always love coming here, weekdays are perfect if you want a less crowded experience! Be careful on the stairs and watch your head!

Amazing waterfalls, large parking area, not difficult.

That trail from the Power line trail is “Closed” and is private property according to letters on posts near gate.

Amazing hike!! Would highly recommend! It rained off and on the whole time but it made it even more beautiful.

Super pretty hike. The entire trail was covered in hard packed snow and some ice. Boots chains and poles for the win!

Went this weekend. It was amazing. 3/17/18 it was snowy still, slippery in some places. Be careful, but otherwise wonderful!

Wife and I just did the loop yesterday. Beautiful walk. There were a lot of families along the trail and it seemed like even the young kids weren’t having any issues. Well maintained, well marked. We were prepared for a much more difficult hike, but all of the falls and the forest were such a great atmosphere that we really enjoyed ourselves. Casual walk, stopping for photos, a lunch break, and to converse with some folks- the whole thing took 3.5 hours.

A great family friendly hike. You can hike different sections if you are crunched for time or the whole Loop. I've done both ways several times. It does get very busy in the late spring and summer. Best time to enjoy it is on a weekday- less busy.

I wouldn't recommend this to avid hikers, but it's perfect for families and people who don't want a super strenuous hike or to have to go out into the wilderness. For someone who hikes/backpacks as a hobby, it was a nice walk through a park and if I remember correctly much of it is paved, so it's hard to call it a true hike. Physically felt more like 2.5 miles total. Still quite lovely, just depends on what you are in the mood for and it's a perfect place to introduce kids to hiking and nature!

The perfect spot for a long walk and lots of waterfalls. We took our time and hiked this easy loop for about 3 hours.

Beautiful hike, think the distance was about 8.5 miles, but certainly didn't feel like that when there's beautiful waterfalls to see so frequently. Some parts of the trail were pretty muddy, so my waterproof hiking boots were appreciated (leave the runners at home)

Love this place! So beautiful.

Short easy hike. Very crowded. Amazing waterfall. In order to enjoy this hike, snow spikes or hiking boots for icy and snowy surface is required. In my opinion, snowshoes are a little bit overkill.
