Snowy (mid November) but beautiful and easily hikable in running shoes. Total milage was 8.0 (not the 6.8 that AllTrails suggested).

WalkingGreat!

We went last Tuesday & it was the perfect time of year. Dropped a car at Benham & Dillon & walked one way - due to time constraints.

HikingFeeGreat!

Great easy walk to see the river with the reward of falls at the start and at the end, mostly shaded but some open areas to get some sun. Minimal traffic on a Wednesday, bikers weren't flying by, no crowds or even people at the falls mid-day (!!)

HikingGreat!

Easy go and longer than indicated in the description (9 miles). Benham Falls is a great payoff from Dillon Falls parking area. Nice dusty trail with a few bikers, trail runners and dog walkers. Minimal traffic on the Monday we did it.

Beautiful trail, great scenery, gentle ascents and descents, very few bugs today. There wasn’t a lot of traffic—a handful of mountain bikers and a handful of hikers—on a Tuesday mid morning. Dogs are allowed off-leash after Sept 15. The wetlands restoration looks fantastic.

We started at Benham and walked to Dillon Falls, very enjoyable. Ignored the trail detour and just walked thru the downed tree section.

FYI the first mile of this trail is closed for construction through June 18. There is a trail detour set up that adds a couple miles and it’s the super scenic, but once you get back on the train, there are so many beautiful spots along the river as you approach the falls. With the detour, though, the whole hike was about 9 miles. If you want to avoid the detour, just start at the Slough Day-Use Area. Overall still a beautiful hike on a well-maintained trail!

Great flat trail for a trail run. Some blown down trees to climb over but not many. Awesome falls at the turn back point.

Went on a week day morning. Not very crowded. Based on NF signage, I’m not sure this is a trail for mtn biking. But very casual and great for beginners!
