    Matthew Mayer reviewed Kentucky Falls Trail

    about 1 month ago

    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

    This would be a 5 star mountain bike trail. I was ignorant in choosing a hike that day, and didn't really research this area; the trails are definitely well suited for mountain bikes, but it might be a better idea to choose a different hiking trail. Beautiful forest setting and decent solitude. The whole time I was hiking had me wishing I had my mountain bike with me.
