Was not really a hike. The falls are right off the gravel road. A very beautiful place to stop and stretch your legs before heading to the top of Baker.

Short waterfall hike. Easy and pretty scenery. Summertime preference.

I've hiked this trail many times and love it, but there's no waterfall as the description suggests. Great camping options at the top and connections to other trails. Check to make sure the footbridge at the beginning of the hike is functional. As of Dec. 2017 it had been severely damaged by flooding.

The trail is short but the falls are worth the lack of distance. There is a fair amount to explore around the falls as well.

very cool trail. I went in January and the water seemed quite high, it was beautiful.

Great quick stop to view a beautiful waterfalls.

Awesome hike. Super challenging and long. Can cautiously bring dogs. Wonderful view in meadow of mountains. Couldve went longer but on time crunch. Could camp out in meadows.

Beautiful falls, no trail! When you pull off the road and drive down the gravel road you end at a parking lot. The falls are basically right there. I'd say this is a must see but it's not a hike, make it a pit stop on the way to another hike.

Trail starts out beautiful and very quickly gets confusing. A little trial and error and you can figure it out. The falls were beautiful and well worth the short hike. We were at the falls much quicker than expected. Over a few logs and walking on the rocks of the creek bed. The creek was still running but at a much lower level than in heavier rain seasons.

Incredible experience camping on the creek bed but the trail needs serious attention once the switchbacks start.

I worked with a WTA crew on the first mile or so of the trail before attempting to use this trail to reach Park Butte. Due the snowfall and trail debris I turned around at 4200ft and camped in the creek bed instead; it was a great night and coming back down was the right call.

it isn't much of a hike if you drive to the parking lot but absolutely beautiful when your there.

Short walk in the snow down to falls as the road was blocked. Fell on my butt- recommend spikes if you have.

Phenomenal trail. We hiked it on a rainy day, so it was a bit muddy, but not bad. There is some old growth along the way that is beautiful. We couldn't see the views on account of the low clouds.
