Extremely easy hike as most of the trail was paved. The bridge and the water is beautiful and we definitely enjoyed it as a more leisurely hike.

If you live in the neighborhood this is a nice trail towards the end. But I wouldn’t drive to get here.

just watch out for the horse poo otherwise an awsome trail to walk for the whole family. very well maintained.

Beautiful trail to backpack in the fall. The leaves are vibrant and less people on the trail!

Not an overly challenging hike, but very peaceful, fairly well maintained in most areas, and a good view of the river by the end!

Great Trail.. loved the waterfalls..

This is a beautiful place to take a hike or run through the woods with a fair amount of solitude during the week. Plan to meet horseback riders—my dog enjoyed meeting a few horses in a very controlled environment. Keeping dogs leashed is important here for the safety of the riders, horses and the pup!

Beautiful wooded hike. I found maps a bit confusing at first but found my way around. Really could have spent all day there. My dogs were well exercised when we got back to the car. Beautiful day.

lots of people but great entry level backpacking

flew in from Tulsa today and fell in love with this trail. I came back out of the trail head just at full dark and it was perfect.

Beautiful views. Clearly blazed or marked. Enjoy Redwood Deck. Hills are moderate.

cute small falls

Loved the hike! Did it with my sister. Took us a little over 4 hrs to complete only because we accidentally got off the trail....We had started at Cold Creek Camp Ground.

Go all the way thru at the top and enjoy a beer at skyline tavern. There is a great outdoor area with horseshoes and dog friendly. Generally somewhat steep, but manageable for most, and a great reward at the top! Highly recommend.

Easy trail, great for families and on-leash dog walking. Draw backs were how busy it was, and parking. Overall, a very nice walk.

My first hike in a couple of years so I wanted something easy. There and out was actually 7 miles, I went mid August and there we no bugs really. We went early so plenty of parking, by the time we got back it was packed. It was an 85 degree day so we ended up at the beach in the water after which was nice. I know I’ll go again. I loved it.

Just got back. No bugs, which was a real plus. We had the entire place to ourselves and didn't see a single person on the entire trip. The place is just gorgeous and if you head to the top of the falls there's a Jacuzzi style water hole that can swim in.

GPS came in at 4.5 miles, took us about 1.5 hours to complete.

Be aware, parking can fill up by 10am on a weekend and there are lots of trail runners out here.

Prepare to get wet! Fantastic hike along and in a creek. Beautiful scenery as you hike through a canyon, climb over a huge log jam and wade through the water to reach a cascading waterfall at the end of your hike. Highly recommend!

this trail is rated as moderate but it was pretty easy. it was nice and cool. The trail was surprisingly crowded, however you weren't nipping at one another's heels. It was BEAUTIFUL! At mile 2 the waterfall was amazing. Lots of dogs. Many off leash which was fine as my dog is well behaved.

Nice moderate hike. A good hill climb in the middle but mostly even through the rest. No views to speak of but you are deep in the woods. Very nice escape!

So the red on the map is actually just a logging road, very rocky if you have bad tires or low clearance. Not very good for hiking since it’s open to vehicles up to the turn. Some nice views after the gate, but sound of gunfire and lots of trash on road was disappointing. Maybe would come back up with a Mtn bike but would t recommend for a hike unless you just happen to be nearby. Mtn bike trails sound pretty well built out though. Also the trail doesn’t start where the red starts, it starts at that sharp turn halfway up where there is a parking lot and toilets.

Trail Is Still Closed At This Time. The Historic Columbia River Highway is Closed Until Further Notice. This Includes Trails Between Bridal Veil Falls and Multnomah, and Trails Between Multnomah and Ainsworth State Park. The Road Is Only Open To State Troopers, Game and WildLife Patrolmen, and Residents That Live On That Road. Anyone Caught Trying To Hike Said Trails Are Fined. This Is All Due To The Bad Fire They Had Last Year And Several Told Me They Aren't Sure When It Should Be Open. One Trooper Told Me It's Looking Like It Will Be June 2019. :( That Means Oneonta George, Oneonta Falls, Horsetail Falls, Ponytail Falls, Larch Mountain Overlook, Fairy Falls, & Wahkeena Falls Are All Closed Until Further Notice. If You Are Looking For Alternatives, You Can Look Into Multnomah Falls & Trails, Latourell Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, and Vista House. You Can Also Take A Drive To Ramona Falls.

Great hike, although the amount of horse crap that is everywhere is pretty gross. Just be careful. Its literally everywhere.

Saw ducks, blue herons, cranes, hawks, several varieties of small birds, deer and nutria. The four hundred year old oaks are amazing.

Love this hike so much. It so secluded and a beautiful walk. Could spend all day here. The signs are a bit confusing at first but I do love it. The mill is always a great see.

We loved bringing our dogs here to enjoy this beautiful spot. I loved being nestled in all the nature surrounding me. We saw a coyote, it was near the trail by the farm but ran into the farm land when we came by. It didn’t run into the woods, just stood watching us. We saw tons of birds. Very nice place!

It was a decent trail but directions to get here are very confusing and we ended up parking on the side of the road. Just from walking the trail, it came through the university so parking there would have been much easier. Trail goes through trees but you also walk on paved sidewalks next to the roads/traffic. Busy trail.

Great place to take kids, see some horses and listen to the birds, see the beautiful trees and not too difficult. Beautiful place to use your imagination.
