Very long trail, you see a few other waterfalls along the way to Pup Creek Falls. There is not trail to them but you can climb over vegetation and get to them. One of them you can climb upstream and get to the base of the falls. Everyone brought their dogs but I don't think that's a good idea. There are some sketchy areas and you have to climb over several fallen trees. The view of the falls is worth the long hike. Very muddy though.

Nice little gem at Mt Hood National Forest. Entertaining hike with quite some waterfalls and nice views onto the Clackamas river on the way to the Pup Creek Falls. Had to do some scrambling here and there due to fallen trees and landslides. Pup Creek Falls were pretty cool! So much bigger than expected!

Nice hike, had some scrambling to do because of land slides and trees down.
