First hike for my 3 year old, water fall was flowing and season was comfortable. Easy to get off trail but you won't get lost roads short distance from north and east.

Really easy hike, didn't feel safe to hike alone for some reason. Lots of trash and a bad vibe. The falls were pretty though. :)

Super short easy trail to the waterfall. Trail on backside of falls is very poorly marked. It's nothing spectacular but a decent little walk.

Beautiful little area to explore. It's not a long hike but the falls are gorgeous and you can take a dip underneath. There's good brook trout fishing here as well.

Very short and trail by falls is all washed out and lots of trash on trails. Could be a great short hike with a little work.

Incredibly beautiful waterfall, but if your looking to walk on some trails this is not the place. The walk to the waterfall is about 2 minutes. The bulletin in the parking lot says there are lengthier trails off of the waterfall but they are horribly marked and not groomed. We tried to follow one and it had one blaze and then nothing else.

Les sentiers ne sont pas clairs, nous nous sommes égarés un peu.

Very short trial and the water is a murky red color that has a very dirty smell that radiates from it. If you go bring bug spray!

Been here, I liked it a lot, but there was that whole deal a few years ago where the cops were busting dudes soliciting sex on the trail by going under cover. haven't been back since that story broke, just feels uncomfortable.

Really nice relaxing walk, with good views of Cascade Falls. Trails can be a little bit hard to follow at times, due to minimal trail markings, but if you're looking for a quick 1/2 hour walk in the woods, definitely check it out!

Enjoyed the beautiful waterfall;though the fact that we haven't gotten a whole lot of rain lately was apparent. Short but nice and peaceful hike, didn't like how the trails aren't marked very well. Good Saturday afternoon activity for my 9 year old daughter and I.

Lovely spot. Easy to find parking lot on Cascade Road on the left heading toward OOB. Not much real estate in there, so I would consider this more of a nature walk than a hike. There is a rusty iron cage along side one of the trails that supposedly back in the 50s contained a bear "for the amusement of tourists." Terrible. Other than that disturbing relic from the past, this place is worth a visit.

Interesting little waterfall. Cool metal cage inside of the woods near the falls.

Very easy hike. I tried following the map and taking a longer route but it ended at the Monkey Trunks zip line house. Workers said no one goes that way so it has grown in. Still a really good hike. Enjoyed it a lot.

Beautiful falls ruined by people who trash it. Maybe I shouldn't say ruined because the falls are quite astonishing, but people need to be more considerate of mother nature. easy short hike.

Waterfall is magical! Quiet and peaceful place, too many mosquitoes though. An easy and short hike. I really enjoyed it! :)
