Great trail. I want to go back in the winter or spring.

We headed out early today to hike the “Trifecta!”
And we were not disappointed!!
We read a lot of the reviews for all of the Falls!
Very EASY to get to if you use Google Directions!
We also left the navigation on. All trails are one after the other! And there is a sign that states the mileage to Moon and Pinard after Spirit...Granted there is not a “distinctive sign” for Spirit Falls but if you track to mileage the trail sign is easy to spot! We hiked Spirit Falls first. Then drove to Moon Falls (big sign when you arrive) and the drove up to Pinard! (Good signage for this trail too) Falls were beautiful!!
Doing all three trails was a nice workout and peaceful hike! This is the perfect time of year to hike these trails when it’s dry!
We headed back home going towards Cottage Grove instead of taking the 5847 back to Hwy 58. Much nicer route home as we live in Eugene.
Awesome day!

very good place! The stairs were a lot for me but made it through

Beautiful, but becoming dangerous. As someone who’s gone there for years, the scene has changed drastically. Rocks are constantly falling. I was nearly hit twice on my last trip there, very scary.

Awesome and beautiful but super easy hike! Very popular spot but still worth an afternoon trip.

Beautiful! Nice, short and easy hike.

The trail map at the trailhead says the trail is 0.4 miles so it's a very short hike. Beautiful falls but the logs were kind of an eye sore.

Beautiful hike but didn't realize the number of stairs involved. Expected a few but those of us plus 70's with hip and knee issues had to take the stairs and stone steps slow and easy. The heighth of the stone stairs varied greatly. We also found that a few areas we're beginning to erode away, making some areas a little difficult. But with all that said, it was one of the best hikes we have ever taken.

Went in middle October. The leaves were changing and just gorgeous.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to hike in a rain forest? This is it, sans the creepy, crunchy biting critters that live in the Amazon! The trail is winding, slightly up hill but easy, well kept. The falls at the end of the hike offer a refreshing dip to cool off! Spring time is when falls are most powerful!

Amazing place

Beautiful trail many small waterfalls.

Had the place to myself today! Got there early and it was raining but I loved it. Got slightly confused with parts of the trail but figured it out. One of my new favorite hikes! Good for all skill levels. There's two ways to go in. I went on the trail on the right. The foliage was beautiful.

Beautiful hike!!

I wanted so bad to climb the Lava Tube..But thinking..will get stuck?

The falls were beautiful and enormous! Short, easy hike and I would 100% recommend the hike to anyone.

Beautiful short easy hike - the lower falls are gorgeous and since it’s end of September- can only imagine how full they are in the spring . The fall colors of the vine maple against the black lava/obsidian is breathtaking...Definitely coming back!

Beautiful area, very short hike

Hike for any level hiker! Beautiful waterfall that you can hike right to the base of the fall for spectacular photos.

Do both falls, it’s a short loop trail with an offshoot to each of the waterfalls...they’re not visible from the main loop. If you are able, hike to the base of the lower falls and up the side of the upper falls. If for some reason you only have time for one, do the lower falls...the way the water cascades and breaks up is really quite beautiful.

great trail for kids and dogs

easy and fun

Really great. We opted to do this trail over Kentucky Falls after reading reviews that the road to that trailhead was rough. We were there first week of September and saw maybe 6-10 people the entire loop, not bad. There are some crawfish living in the gentle streams below, hiding in the rocks. “Swimming” is possible also, but since it’s so cold, we just kept jumping in and getting out immediately. Many different small waterfalls leading to the main waterfall at the end, I would recommend parking at the further parking lot to really experience this area.

Great short hike. Really easy. You start walking through the forest for a bit, then through some volcanic rock fields, then end up at lower proxy falls. Lower proxy is the larger of the two falls and the path off the main loop to its base can require some scrambling around fallen trees and rocks, but is nothing too challenging. Upper proxy is great as well, there was a giant pool of water at the bottom when we arrived, so in order to really see it clearly we had to climb up a path to the right when facing the falls. You could do this loop in 30-45 minutes straight, but you’ll probably want to stop and enjoy the waterfalls. We stayed on the loop for 1.5 hrs.

Pretty area. Easy hiking!

Great loop!

Love the waterfalls and a great short refreshing hike with the kids

Great trail, very easy. Beautiful scenery.

This is one of my favorite sub-1 hour hikes in and around Lebanon. There can be a lot of people in the park on any given weekend, but most evenings it’s fairly low traffic. The upper trails are narrow and are feeling a bit overgrown but it’s still gorgeous.

I walk the loop counter clockwise from the bottom lot and get the stair climb out of the way early which makes the rest of the path a breeze.

We love this trail. You can either stay on the path or if you don’t mind getting your feet wet you can work your way up the creek.
