trail is still very muddy, but definitely hikable. really easy hike with a beautiful view

Beautiful short hike. The water running along side the trail was worth it alone, but the falls were amazing! Great short stop off the road.

Great trail, beautiful falls!

Beautiful falls, very full right now. Trail is pretty muddy in spots though and sometimes huge puddles take up the entire width of the trail, so I would suggest hiking boots at this time!

After you reach the bridge continue on for a short distance and up a pile of rocks/small boulders to a beautiful view right at the base of the falls. It was so icy (beg of Apr) be very careful!!!

3rd place in the race of the 3 falls in this area. See also: Pinard and Moon. It is a nice n easy .75 mile hike down to a beautiful wide and full falls; in late March. It also offers a bench and a picnic table down by the falls if you wanna take a load off and have lunch with a view. Another hidden Oregon gem.

The moss! Amazing power from that water falling. Smooth walk, not too much traffic, a little snow (March) but not cold. Can lower to base with ropes. Great for kids and dogs.

Great trail for toddlers! The waterfall was huge and beautiful! The trail was muddy and wet.

Visited Twin Lakes in July 2017. One of the most beautiful hikes I’ve ever done. The two lakes are absolutely gorgeous. I didn’t have a problem with mosquitos when I visited. We were there mid day, around 1-2 pm. I highly recommend this hike. At this time, however, the road leading to Twin Lakes is closed due to fire damage that occurred during the summer.

One of my favorite waterfalls off of Little River Road. The trail head can be difficult to find if you have never been there before. The trail head is across the road from Lake in the Woods. You will see a sign designating a hiking area but there is nothing that specifically states you are at the Yakso Falls trailhead.

I highly recommend doing Hemlock Falls while you’re here. The Hemlock Falls trail can be accessed from the Lake in the Woods campground.

I wish people would heed the leash rules for their dogs. The falls were wonderful, a bit mucky in places.

We enjoyed this hike very much. Excellent views. Steep so there are many opportunities to stop and enjoy your surroundings on the way up while catching your breath. We hiked up at dusk and came out with headlamps after a beautiful sunset.

Every waterfall has something special. This one was beautiful worth the hike.

Beautiful falls... easy trail. Trail head is adjacent to the entrance of Lake in the Woods.

It's the most beautiful hike in the fall! The colored leaves are endless and frame the falls so perfectly.

As of 10/24/17, NF 4770 (the forest road that leads to Twin Lakes) is closed due to fire activity. The trail is unlikely to be accessible until late next spring.

easy hike , beautiful and clean trail.

I have been here twice with friends and family within the past six months and plan on coming back again and again.

Make sure you visit the base of the fall: Take the path over the rocks at the bottom by the long wooden bridge!

We were looking for Hardesty Trail but couldn't find it and we ran into this. Short hike, but very consistently uphill which makes for a challenge. Great views at the top.

a great trail for a beginner hiker or a family with small kids. loved it.
