Nice and East walk. Trail was clear of debris. saw only a few people.

06/05/2020 Good hike to the top. Cool ski lift and views. A few mosquitoes at the beginning. Some snow near the top in the shade. Crunchy, solid, and melting. Totally doable in sneakers. Good trail markers through most of it. Helpful to have the map. Happy Trails!

love this hike normally. there’s just so much snow still. I had service on my phone so theoretically we could follow the trail from the app to go the right direction, but we got tired of trudging through the snow so we turned back about halfway to the rim. sad :( still some really pretty views at the beginning

Gorgeous trail. One of my favorites. After 1.5 miles it is mostly snow. Will wait another month or come prepared and give yourself plenty of time.

Beautiful easy walk- lovely views

I’ve done this hike many times before, decided to do it at sunset this time!! It was SO BEAUTIFUL, but very windy. Bring lots of layers and blankets!!

This hike remains one of my favorites even after 20 years because the views are just that good. The brush to the trailhead appears to have recently been cut back, thankfully. Bathrooms are currently closed due to vandalism.

Was recommended to us by a gal at the outdoors store in town. Was a really nice hike. We started it around 4 pm and only saw a handful of people on the trail which was nice. Views are actually better just before the tower on top.

Wasn't sure what to expect, so I showed up in sandals and brought hiking poles. I would highly suggest NOT wearing sandals, especially if you want to get a good view of the falls. There were some mosquitoes, the trail can be a little rocky and there are fallen trees. Totally worth it though!

Hiked on 6/3. Road still closed, it's a 2.5 mile trek on gravel to the trailhead. Tumalo is beautiful and there's a little trail you can take to get right up next to/behind the falls. Great view of double falls as well. Turned around after that. Would be 5 stars, but the slog to the trailhead is a bummer.

Easy hike with a great payoff. Trail is wide, flat, well marked, and well maintained. The falls are beautiful, great views/photo ops.

Easy, flat, and well-marked, but not that interesting. Better lakes to see in Deschutes, and lots of mosquitoes. Swampy lakes loop does not match all trails map.

I’m sure this trail is incredible in the summer- the river alongside the trail is beautiful and the trail itself seemed very well maintained. However, unless you’re in the mood to walk on snow for miles I would say give this one a few more weeks to dry up. Hard to keep track of the trail and you’re walking on slushy snow about a half mile in and on. We decided to turn back about 2 miles in and try again when it melts!

we was the reviews from others that there as still snow a week ago and hoped it would be better .. it isn't! The first mile isn't bad and snow is easily traversed, but after that finding the trail is impossible! we made it to the (frozen) lake up top before turning around. There were footsteps going up a ridge, without yaks we didn't attempt it. The views w saw were amazing and I can't imagine how much better they would be up higher. We will definitely do this again, but not until the 5 feet of snow up top melts

Still lots of snow as of 6/2. Made our way to the top by keeping an eye on the app, but the trail was completely covered. Definitely doable, but good boots and a charged phone recommended. Spectacular views, worth the effort.

Hiked this Memorial Day weekend with a group of 4 people and 3 dogs. Had to park pretty far from the trail head. It was busy up top but not a lot of passing during the hike. The hike up was more straining than expected (I am out of shape right now)! Dust on the way up was bad. Views up top were beautiful. Bring a jacket or shirt if you plan to hang out up top- it’s chiller up there!

I felt like I was on a movie set. The falls turn into a long stretch of major whitewater. There’s plenty of shade, but take water because you can go past the second parking lot and follow the Deschutes River for miles. I can’t wait to come back and enjoy this area on my bike.

Good trail that is well maintained. The trail was quite busy. Amazing views at the summit. The hike up is quite an uphill trek but definitely worth it!

Planned to arrive by 10am, but we followed friends who plugged in trailhead with iPhone and directions were different. Came up on three other cars who had same problem, so follow route given in app. By 11am set off and trail was quiet. The burned forest is eerily pretty and flat but otherwise not exciting and scenery doesn't change for most of the trail. The waterfall is stunning and to fully appreciate it you need to descend down a steep slope. I'm glad we did it, but won't do it again.

Great hike. Very steady uphill hike. The views on the way up and at the top are amazing and worth it. After passing the upper parking lot there is a lot more traffic on the trail.
