The trail is paved out and is good for different levels of hikers. If you are scared of heights, the narrow paths have cable to hold on to. It's crowded and has good views of the creek and waterfalls.

This is not a trail, but an old road that was once paved and then demolished. The "trail" is literally the old demolished paved road, so you are walking on giant pavement chunks that are sticking out of the ground every which way.

So beautiful! I did this hike in August 2016 solo. If you like waterfalls then don't miss this hike. I started at Wahtum Lake and finished at Eagle Creek campground. Many people stopped at Tunnel Falls if you can do the whole hike do because there are so many falls above there that are note worthy! I cant wait until I can go summer 2017 with a bunch of girlfriends

The trailhead on Sandy, OR leads to a deserted road. There is no trail here. Mistook this for Eagle Creek in Cascade Locks

Punchbowl Falls is definitely worth the afternoon hike! pack a lunch and eat at the falls, but it is seasonal when views of the falls will be available due to water levels amd stream flowing power in the spring as the snow is melting still. Summer time it gets busy, don't forget to pay the $5 parking in the front as well!!! they will ticket you lol.

Loved the Hike. Wasn't crowded except at the very beginning. The weather was amazing, the falls were impressive even with low flow.

One of my favorites! It's definitely worth going all the way to Wahtum Lake and camping if you have the time.

Beautiful hike full of waterfalls! Gets incredibly busy on the weekends and there is a parking fee of $5 (cash only). While I usually don't mind paying, the overflow garbage and unmaintained bathroom makes me question where the money goes! Now... back to the hike - small climb following the water the whole way. Really great hike. As long or as short as you would like! Loop or out and back! Rating it a little lower because of the traffic and lack of maintenance but the water is amazing!!
