Absolutely stunning, the trail was amazing with amazing views. The offshoots were my favorite. There was a ton of snow on the west side of the trail which made it a lot more challenging, but overall it was a great hike!

My favorite waterfall in Oregon. it's truly magical. The only downfall is the hike being so short.

Such a pretty hike, and the falls are amazing!

Loved it but not as easy as it’s cited. The down can be tricky when wet and the back up is tough going unless you’re in good shape. Wanted to take my mom but there’s no way she could have done it so for that reason I wouldn’t call it an “easy” hike.

Went this last summer and had a blast! Very pretty falls and not too long of a hike!

Omg! So utterly beautiful! Worth every step through the muddy trail!

Easy trail. Beautiful falls!!! It started dumping snow on the way out. Roads were still ok, but would suggest a car with 4WD or chains.

Easy and beautiful walk down- challenging uphill hike back. And agree with the google maps review- DO NOT use it I got many new and unwanted scratches on my truck from the narrow road it took us on. It also got very foggy at about 3pm and made it hard to see on the drive out. The roads are mostly single lane so drive carefully.
If you have bad knees or are physically challenged in any way take some hiking poles and plenty of water.

Beautiful hike! One of my favorite hikes to do!

Brought tire chains in Dec this time, but never used them. Still some snow on the road. we hiked with four year olds and a dog and it was great. it is an easy trail to the falls, but difficult to climb up to the falls, which is optional. Definitely recommended. Paired with spirit falls was a 5-6 hour round trip from eugene for us.

I love this trail with little ones! the trailhead is unmarked and hard to find. It is like 0.5 mile from the bathroom intersection, stay to the right at the intersection. parking is right off the road and the trailhead is just to the right of a big tree. waterfall was flowing in Dec and the trail is wet and muddy. Definitely recommended! From Eugene, plan 5-6 hours to do both moon and spirit falls with climbing around time.

Did this Dec 9. The vehicle access road to the trailhead parking lot closes for the winter on Dec. 1 so the hike up the road to the trailhead adds 4.5 miles round trip, making this a 12 mile hike. The log crossing was easy as there is a log handrail next to one of the main crossing logs, so even though it’s icy, you can easily hang on and feel safe as long as the water level is low. Could have used yak tracks in a few icy spots but no need for snowshoes right now. Pretty views of Hood and the falls are beautifully iced over in parts. Almost no one out today due to the weather.

Nice easy walk to two beautiful waterfalls. If you catch it right the sun makes a rainbow just by the falls. Went on 3rd December and trail was a little icy and slippy so be careful. Was very quite as well only us along the trail.

This trail is full beautiful waterfalls. Just do not follow Google maps to go to the trailhead. Google Maps will take you on literally a very narrow jungle road. I suggest you use the day time for your entire trip because at night it gets extremely foggy in there. It reduces to visibility to only a few yards. All in all it was a great experience.

This is a great hike, the waterfalls are breath taking and beautiful.

You should know that the trailhead is in a very remote area of the coast range- the access roads are primitive and not maintained like a regular road. You will be driving on remote roads for at least 30 minutes to access this trailhead.

I strongly recommend following William Sullivan’s (Oregon Coast Range Hiking Book) driving directions to access the trailhead; do not use google maps. Google took me on a dangerous “shortcut”, a 6 mile detour on a 4X4 completely unmaintained logging trail. My car got scratched to shit. I could have easily gotten a flat tire.

On the way back, I followed William Sullivan’s directions in conjunction with apple maps; this was much safer (still gravel road with potholes, but much wider and maintained). I strongly recommend having a car with ground clearance.

All in all, great hike, and don’t be dumb like me and leave navigating up to google on this one; do some preparation in advance. Bring a GPS or detailed maps. Happy trails

Just did this a few days ago and I’ve done this hike multiple times. It’s a perfect little day trip (coming from Eugene) and the falls are gorgeous!

It was a great trail. Not too hard and a great length. How ever, I believe the 6.9 mi. that this app says is wrong. My garmin watch said it was close to 9 miles. Went late November and hiked through some snow! Slippery but just be cautious. And crossing the river is fairly easy. Enjoy!

Awesome, relaxed hike. Crossing the river wasn't too bad - it definitely looks scarier than it is. We went the first weekend of November and there was no issue, but I'm not sure how high the water is now that it's rained recently.

Fun relatively easy hike! Be prepared to walk on a log to cross the river! Super pretty and pretty empty trail!

11/18/18. Relatively easy hike, mostly flat, well-defined trail. Beautiful views of Mt. Hood when the forest opens up a bit. Ramona falls was an awesome way to cap off the hike.

Did this short lovely hike today with my dog and 2 year old. My 2 year old needed help in spots because it was steep and muddy therefore slippery in spots but enjoyable still. He loved splashing in the water by the falls.

This was a beautiful and easy hike. Mostly flat hike with some moderate up hill areas. The river is easy to get across on the logs, but could be hard with pets or small children. There are a few beautiful views of Mount Hood, especially near the river you have to cross. Ramona Falls was even bigger than I expected, it’s definitely worth the hike! The area around Ramona Falls is roped off for vegetation regrowth, so please obey the signs and don’t pass over the rope.

Great place to hike! Restrooms available. Lots of water scenes, waterfalls, and forrest to explore. Flat and easy marked trails. Dog friendly as well.

Amazing views. Idk about that 2.2 miles though. The loop took us awhile and we move at a decent pace.

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!

I'm sure this would have been a lovely hike, however, make sure you don't bring dogs or young kids. I went on 11/3/18 and the river water was rushing badly enough that we couldn't figure out a safe way to cross with dogs. We went up and down the river as far as we could find but there wasn't any where with a log large enough for a big dog to cross comfortably. Perhaps if we had harnesses on the dogs and could have them walk across with some help with the leash? We ended up turning around after my friend's border collie tried leaping off the log a foot in. I did see two sets of families with two big dogs each and I wish I had asked them how they got across. Overall, I'm willing to take risks but I'd skip this until Summer if you've got a dog large enough that you can't carry them.

Absolutely worth the hike, arrived just after 8 am on a Sunday and had the trail to ourselves. Definitely not kid or big dog friendly unless they can cross the log in the river. Round trip took about 3 hours and that’s with stopping up by the falls to refuel & enjoy the view.

Day couldn’t have been much better (unless it was sunny, twenty degrees warmer, and no other people...). I’d be inclined to reconsider this as moderate, or at least at the lower end. It’s thoroughly enjoyable, and the loop to follow the stream downward, to me, is absolutely worth it.

Last time I did this was a year and a half ago during a heat streak. Both times of year offer something different and wonderful.

This was a great beautiful and easy hike! We had planned on making the loop bigger and checking out the views of Bald Mt. too, but my my partner was getting sick and not up for 13 miles! I’d do this hike again in a heartbeat!!

the waterfall is a great spot to stop for a snack, the river crossing was easy once we figured out where it was. gorgeous views of mt hood!
