    This is probably my favorite hike in the whole east Gorge. The terrain is open and the views are outstanding. Best of all, though, is the wildflower display from March to May. It's incredible even in a down year. This year was spectacular. Best of all? There are almost no crowds. If you come after the wildflowers you probably won't see anybody.

    This place is awesome!

    Currently there is a boulder blocking the road about 1 mile from the trailhead. You can't get past it and it's at an awkward spot so be careful. I only hiked about 1/2 mile of the trail before we turned around but there's lots of blowdown, though you'd really have to try hard to lose the trail.

    From what I saw I would give it one star, but there are some nice views of Mt. Jefferson on the drive there, so at least there's that.

    The 1 star is for the waterfall, which is pretty despite being 15 feet tall. The rest of the hike is underwhelming (to put it lightly). To make matters worse, the understory is mostly small downed trees and there are no highlights at all on the hike of any kind other than the waterfall. The road in to the trailhead is narrow and muddy this time of year as well. And to top matters off, this is a Discovery Pass site despite the unstocked bathroom and empty registration card box.

    The trail begins higher and drops down to follow a mud / dirt track that parallels road B 1000. You don't approach the creek until you near the falls, and then the trail crosses the creek just 0.2 mile later. The return route also parallels the road, but you should instead just follow the road. It isn't busy, is much closer to Buck Creek than the trail, and has taller trees than you see along the trail.

    Do not hike unless you live nearby or really like waterfalls - and even then, you should do it once and never go back.
