We tried to drive to this Trail after hiking Spirit Falls, but we could not make it down the road with the snow. So if you do this Trail in early spring, bring chains!

We tried to drive to this trail after hiking Spirit Falls, but we couldn't get any traction on the road with the snow. The elevation is higher than spirit falls, so it was snowing instead of raining. We turned around and did not do the hike. I would try it again in later spring/summer. If you go at this time bring chains!

We chose to “hike” this trail to get some miles in for the day and regretted it half way in. The lake views are beautiful, but half the trail takes you away from it through a mosquito infested forest. When you come back around towards the lake you’re basically walking through people’s campsites and it feels a little odd.

Did this yesterday 6-14-18. The road to the parking area is dry and clear, but there are some deep tire tracks to watch out for. The trail is clear until you get above the tree line. I was able to get over/around the snow in my trail running shoes. However, when I got to the ridge after what I refer to as “the window” looking at Diamond Lake and Thielsen, the snow piled up against the rocks and over the trail seemed too dangerous for what I was wearing. I would say July would be the best time to start this one if you’re not into snowshoeing, etc. The views were spectacular and the trail is very well maintained. I definitely recommend it. Bring plenty of water because the incline is gnarly the closer you get to the top. Happy exploring.

5-20-18 did the hike that puts you at the Viewpoint above the falls. very lovely hike with a lot of beautiful Cascades that run along the river. The view of the actual Lemolo Falls isn't fantastic from the upper because it is too dangerous to get out to a point that is unobstructed. but still well worth the adventure and the view is decent just not totally unobstructive to see the entire Falls. did not run into another person the entire hike. would like to go back and do the other trail that would put us down at the bottom of the falls. I did not have any trouble with mosquitoes this time of year.

5 stars for the view at the top! I didn’t actually hike all of the 2.8 miles track as we opted for the longer 7+ miles hike. I don’t recommend the longer one unless you’re with somebody who’s done it before. The trailhead is not marked and there was a sign along the way that was almost impossible to see on your way up and we ended up hiking 5+ miles in the wrong direction. But the actual Mount June summit is absolutely gorgeous!

Slick areas when rain saturates clay. The falls were gorgeous at day break!

Beautiful crisp hike this morning. No bugs due to cool air. Peaceful!

The falls were flowing well and the hike there was smooth, though there was standing water in spots for the trail.

Love the variety of scenery here. There was still snow on the ground in areas, but trails still easily accessible. the uncollapsed mine was flooded at this time of year.

Short and sweet. If you're into chasing waterfalls like I am then this one should be on your bucket list. You won't regret it!

Beautiful trail with a wide variety of plants. Early June day brought a fluke snowstorm, which only added to the incredible scenery. Evidence of last year's massive forest fire is everywhere. Great people tirelessly cleared the trail and brought it back to life. 2 beautiful lakes close together, easy hike.

Great hike with amazing views! Rock climbing was super sketchy. Don’t forget to wear sunscreen!

started early and encountered noone on the trail, wildflowers are blooming, both falls are running, just an awesome hike!

really beautiful waterfall

I thought this trail was beautiful. You can see the river almost the whole time and you get a lot of variety with up-hills and down-hills. The rhododendrons were blooming when I ran it last. It is very overgrown, however, and I found a tick on me afterwards, so spray yourself before you go. There was LOTS of poison oak, too.

I started at the Toketee Lake trailhead and trail-ran up to the hot springs and back. It was really beautiful. There was one section close to the hot springs trail junction where there was a big landslide and a fallen tree. Had to scramble uphill around the tree trunk and scramble back down on loose rock. It was definitely do-able, though, just use caution.

Beautiful falls and fairly straightforward hike to get to them. Some elevation and climbing, and a few narrow parts where we couldn't go 2 abreast. Our 5 year olds did great with it; held their hands for much of the hike to ensure safety. highly recommend!

The comments below are not correct. The MOTT segment of the North Umpqua Trail is NOT closed. The NUT is broken up into segments, the Tioga and Marsters segments are still closed due to fire damage, per US Forest service as of 5/29/18.
I just hiked the MOTT segment May 28, 2018. It’s in great shape. In my opinion it’s the easiest of the segments, it’s nearly flat the entire time. Minimal elevation change.

Really well maintained trail! Nice drive up - follow directions carefully and set your odometer to find the last access road 1721. (small triangle of road on the left when approaching) Some light hail, cloudy day so no view for us, but still worth it! Great exercise - suggest poles and/or walking stick because this trail is s t e e p!

There are several driving routes to find the trailhead to the falls and our first attempt was unsuccessful.

Second attempt was grandly rewarded by an easy, beautiful hike to the uplifting Spirit Falls.

An amazing 8.7 miles round trip trial to the hot springs from a parking lot near Toketee fall, with 1,676 elevation gain. It's trail for those who want to experience what Oregon Trail is all about via "sole" :)

First read the instructions in the review by Francie Skinner from 2012. There are two different trails to get to these falls. If you use Google Maps, you'll be taken to the trailhead on the west side of the river. This is the more difficult trail but it was worth it. We had 7 kids with us ranging from 3 to 8 years old and all did just fine on the way down. Near the falls there was a lot of assistance needed as the mist makes everything slippery and muddy. The smaller kids then had a hard time on the way out because it was all uphill. This was a very empty trail. We only saw two other people who were coming down as we were leaving. Looking to the other side of the river where the other trail is supposed to end, it looks like you'd get a good view of the falls from above but not be able to get close to them. Anyway, I'm glad Google maps took me to this trailhead rather than the one shown on the map here at All Trails.

This was a very challenging hike, yet very rewarding. We still had patches of snow that were deep higher up the trail and it made it almost impossible to keep eyes on the trail, so we blazed our own. The climbing is not as easy as some make it out to be. The summit block may be class 3-5, depending on your abilities and experience, however, on the way up there is a section of class 5 climbing with quite a bit of exposure. This was my first summit, however, I went with two experienced friends who have summited Mount Hood 8 times between them. The variation we took, according to them, is more difficult to climb than Hood. Be safe, make smart decisions, and have fun.

Great short hike to some amazing views. The parking was a bit tight on a busy holiday weekend. I’d suggest not bringing a dog since the trail can get a little congested. The view points were amazing and breathtaking. Stairs placed throughout the trail with railing which was nice. Toketee lake is a 1/2 mile down the road. Didn’t know it was their prior to going. Pack a picnic lunch and eat by the lake campground or day use area.

Beautiful hike and full of history! Bring bug spray!

We had a some rain, hail, snow, and splash of sunshine. A nice short adventure in the mountains for my birthday

Great Hike with spectacular views on the summit. We did it in early May and the snow was still pretty deep(obviously) and so we wore our mountaineering boots and just slogged up it. We brought snow shoes too but found that just the boots worked best. At the top the trail drops around to the left of the false summit and you have to traverse some slightly sketchy snow field we brought ice axes for this part and kicked steps in. We stayed up on the ridge on the way back down, but be careful of the cornices! They were pretty large and looked ready to go. All in all it took us about five and half hours to summit and another three back down. You could probably do it faster but we were carrying training weight. I'm knocking a star off due mainly to the snowmobiles that drove all the way to the summit and then spun circles around it. Quite obnoxious and sorta ruined the serenity of the mountain top that I crave.

The fall isn't marked with any signage from the main road. You will only see a hiking sign then you will need to turn on another road for parking and this is where you will see the sign for Moon falls. The waterfall was beautiful. A picnic table and end of the fall so you can have a lunch.

This section is closed right now due to extensive fire damage. I haven't walked the entire trail, but it is nice. Very flat and smooth. Unfortunately, the fire did heavily affect this segment. The trail head if moving upstream to downstream is on 4770, which is also the road you take up to Twin Lakes
