dogs on leash
Absolutely beautiful setting! Brought my 12 and 7 year old daughters and they did great. We wanted to make it to the top but they were done by the 5th mile. Bring kids that are good hikers and comfortable with long distances. I definitely recommend this trail to all who love to hike along the water!
I suggest hiking here in the early spring or late fall to truly enjoy the views. The summer time can be quite busy as Portlanders will travel out here to swim in the opal waters. I went in late March to have most of the place to ourselves. A must see for Oregonians!
