Nestled in the lower elevation of Oregon's Cascade Mountains lies a temperate rain forest. It is here that the Trail of Ten Falls can be found. The trail and the falls descend to a forest floor covered with ferns, mosses, and wildflowers. You will also find stands of Douglas fir, hemlock, and cedar. While thousands visit the park every year, it is large enough for you to find quiet places to sit and watch for birds.

Awesome time to see this Epic Trail ... a little ice at spots so be careful def be back around by 4 it gets dark its a long one if you go all the way around ***Pro Tip - Start from the North Falls Lot especially if you arn’t starting really early because you will finish on the rim trail which is easy an little to no ice ... you get to walk all the falls and if you get to the south entrance by 350pm you can grab a Beer and (grilled chicken/bacon Shwarma) from the Cafe 100% worth it!

Great trail but better to go before or after the winter to enjoy the beautiful scenery instead of nerving the very slippery and icy rocks along some cliff points, especially dangerous for little kiddos. traction poles and traction shoes are must haves if you still want to go in the winter

Great trail with good signage. Day after Thanksgiving parking was free! Northern parts were especially icy and areas under waterfalls were covered in a half inch layer of ice - beautiful and treacherous!

Amazing time, only wish my damn shoes weren’t thrash.

Beautiful area, nice leisurely stroll. Started at 11 on Saturday, not crowded. Took almost 3 hours, with stopping, ate when we got back to the car. If you can walk 7 miles, you can do this!

Hiked 11/21, gorgeous weather, fantastic hike with great views/waterfalls. Definitely a must for anyone in Oregon. I had a late start so I hike fairly quickly and finished the whole 8 mile trail in 2 and a half hours so it’s definitely doable in a short time period if that’s all you have. I definitely recommend starting from the South Trail and going down Canyon Trail to start off your hike. Overall, incredible experience, 10/10 would recommend.

Beautiful experience

Didn’t really realize it was primarily a bike trail until about halfway through. Finished anyway and will more than likely hike and bike it again.. and again. Loved how the forest changed up the environment and feel. Saw two bikers - otherwise empty.

Early morning run. A few muddy spots to hop around, but otherwise spectacular!

very easy and the hike behind the falls is great

Awesome trail. You see 7 of the 10 falls in this shorter loop.

I wouldn’t consider this a hike, but the path to the falls is relatively easy (there is an incline on the way back up, but it’s short). Every time I go I make sure it’s late Oct or Nov (less people) & if you catch it on a rainy day you’ll see hardly anyone else there.

Awesome trail! Can be finished in just under 5 hours with minimal breaks. Can be slippery at some of the waterfall paths. Started at Rim trail and ended with south falls. Really great going this route because you avoid the crowds and can get really great pictures without having to wait for people to get out of the way.

Very cold this time of year, but no rain! Was pretty muddy in some spots. I didn’t see anyone the whole time. It was very peaceful. I showed up at 7am when the park was open to avoid the crowds. When I left there was a lot of cars in the lot.

First hike on the trip.

This walk offers the best bang for your buck if you are looking for an easily accessible and well maintained trail to get you to some of the most beautiful scenery! It was a little longer than the 7.5 miles listed. I kept a pretty brisk walk/jog and finished in 4 hours including lots of picture stops. Totally worth the drive and a great way to spend a beautiful fall morning.

The views from behind the falls and from the bridge are both so cool!

This is the best “easy” hike in the park, in my opinion! Walking behind South Falls is always incredible, even if it does get a bit crowded sometimes. If going on a weekend in summer, expect crowds!

Half marathon today. 110319.

We are new to mountain biking and was comfortable on this trail. We did this loop yesterday starting with the trail. We eventually realized it would have been a lot more fun if we had headed up the road first. But it was still enjoyable. Beautiful forest setting. There is a “skills course” that we headed to first that was a lot of fun. Looking forward to going back.

Great hike! Not too long or too hard. Took us about 5.5 hours, and we stop a lot to take pictures and eat... The maple trees have already shed their leaves. A few short parts of the trail are steep and icy so be careful. It was cold yesterday but not terrible. Almost the entire trail is in the shade. Note that this weekend there's going to be some marathon there.
