great hike. not bad at all if in halfway decent shape. tons of mosquitos so wear strong stuff
blast through the woods to ridgeline and then it gets rocky. there is a meandering trail that can be easy to lose in the shale. don't trust footing it will betray you. give person in front space.
final scramble is cake. pilot rock is more technical, no rope in needed.

Has a cool vibe and would recommend if you are able to make the trip. It seems there can be some sketchy people in the area, but everything was fine for us. :)

Very beautiful and worth the hike. The water falls into a gorgeous deep blue pool. There are a few opportunities to get off the trail and go down to the water. If you are able, I would highly recommend taking advantage of those areas as the views and experience is almost surreal.

Hike is appropriately listed as moderate, but it seems easy because the scenery is so beautiful it keeps your attention. Felt as if we were walking through a fairy tale book.

Moderate hike from the hemlock side. Nice lakes Mosquitos weren’t too bad, but there was definitely an over abundance of them. The worst part was seeing all the toilet paper and poop holes people have left behind. If you’re going to dig a hole to use at least fill it in and pack out your toilet paper. Just behind every downed tree in the burned out section someone used the area as a toilet.

Short, but beautiful hike. The falls are gorgeous. While the hike is short, the falls are pretty enough to spend a while taking in the view. Bring a book and a picnic, and hang out for a while. Dip your toes in the cool water.

Really beautiful! Easy for kids. A lot of stairs!

Didn’t summit but hiked in 4 miles to the ridge overlooking the avalanche valley and peak and camped overnight . Incredible view.

This place is super crowded and the bursting water pipe thing in the parking lot is a little off putting. They also could benefit from another restroom. Aside from that there isn't anything to complain about! A short, scenic and easy walk to the falls. There were some stairs but nothing too crazy, The treehouse like lookout was pretty cool, but the view from up there was kind of underwhelming so I climbed down to the bottom, MUCH BETTER! and not as crowded. (CLIMBING DOWN TO THE FALLS IS NOT A TRAIL! AT LEAST A CLASS 3, DO AT YOUR OWN RISK) The color of the water is so blue and beautiful, The columnar jointing is awesome as well! Nice, well defined columns. This place is beautiful for sure...

Glorious all the way in with a spectacular finish at the falls. Loved every step of the way!

Absolutely love this trail. I take anyone that comes and visits me from out of town to this spot. By far one of my top 5 favs so far on the north umpqua.

Visited this waterfall today (along with Toketee, Whitehorse, and Clearwater.) This was my 3rd visit to this waterfall in less than a year (September and October of 2017.) Mist feels great on a warm summer day. Beautiful views along the trail.

Did this hike late this afternoon, my 3rd visit to these falls within the past year (September and October in 2017.) I made my way down to the base all three times. But you have to be very careful, it is quite steep from the viewpoint platform down to the river. In fact, a woman fell 100' here last week and had to go to the hospital. It was on the news: http://ktvl.com/news/local/medford-woman-rescued-after-falling-near-toketee-falls

mosquitos are really bad right now so bring lots of repellant. Beautiful waterfall!

The trail is 1.6 miles from the sign that says lemolo no1 warm springs falls trail. Entrance is on the left between two trees. If you get to the open area with the Warm Spring sign you have gone too far.

Great view!! 15 mile drive up windy road. Short and steep hike.

Just a short 1 mile round trip to a cascading waterfall. Lots of moss and rocks makes this waterfall very pretty. There is a picnic bench at the beginning of the trail as well as at the base of the falls.

Nice short hike to beautiful falls. Would be a lovely place for a picnic with young kids. Easy to get to,

Nice trail, very easy slopes up and down but not too much. Beautiful scenery the whole trip. Falls were amazing. Picnic table at trail head and at the falls. Very short climb to second waterfall tier. If you feel adventurous after that you can keep climbing to the top but you might do some rock climbing so come prepared. Wounderful place!!! We love it!

Amazing hike just went end of june great hike made it up in an impala, but would suggest a 4x4 due to pit holes!

This was an easy hike, but there are a lot of roots and rocks. Several stairs up and down. The falls are cool, but it would be nice to be able to get closer to the bottom without having to go off trail and rock climbing. If I were 30 years younger I would!

The lakes are still beautiful. Lots of fire damage on the short hike up to the first lake (1.25 mi), but the lakes were preserved pretty well. Mosquitos were moderate.

I just hiked it this week and there is a lot of snow for the last 2 miles. It can be tricky to find the trail, but I was able to manage thanks to a previous hiker's tracks. The view at the top is INCREDIBLE, I had the whole trail to myself. One note on the road to the trailhead: it's heavily eroded and I would not recommend low to the ground cars to attempt it. When you drive it you'll know what I mean ;)

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!

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!
