I do not know if we hit this at the wrong time but when we went there was only a trickle and I felt it dangerous. We were up high and the trail narrows to the point if you slipped it would really hurt.

Very narrow and rocky in some areas. Further along the trail there are some steep “trails” to get down to the waters edge, watch out for poison oak though. Gorgeous views!

Lovely trail, narrow and rocky at times. Fun to see the rafters! Encountered copious flies and yellow jackets in late August 2020. Off the hook flies.

Great! Not crowded. Most people at the trailhead weren’t there for the hike apparently. I pulled off I5 mid drive to do this, jumped in the river after, then finished my road trip and it was perfect. This would not be a good trail run - too rocky. Also, the road in from I5 south/Wolf Creek is a windy 1-laner, but is in great condition.

Beautiful trail. Definitely moderate as there are quite a lot of rocks to navigate, but totally doable for kids (if they’re hikers) and confident beginners. The falls are beautiful, and I appreciated how quite this trail was. I only passed a couple of people, which seems to be rare these days. Watch out for poison oak. And bring bug spray.

Great trail! Quite a bit of poison oak so beware. Was able to bring my dog on the trail, but fairly high up next to the edge. I would recommend keeping them on the leash. Beautiful views!

Absolutely beautiful trail! Maneuvering around rocks most of the way.

Great trail! Perfect tree coverage. Narrow and close to edge but manageable for families. If you have an inexperienced young child I wouldn’t take them as you definitely want to make sure their respectful of lack of space and close edges.

Love this trail, very rocky so make sure you have appropriate shoes. I wouldn’t run on this trail, thin and steep.

A beautiful and fun hike. we really enjoyed it and recommend the hike. We had to go through several seasonal streams. The trail is pretty rocky and I was glad I wore boots. I wished I would have brought my hiking pole.

A family favorite. This trail has a great destination. The Rogue River falls 15 feet vertically over a short distance. Fish are occasionally jumping up the falls. Great photo opportunity. Beautiful location for nature watching and fishing. During the summer you can also watch rafter attempt to go over this class 5 Rapid.

As others have pointed out, this hike leads to a large rapid in the Rogue River, so the "falls" name is a little misleading. A lovely hike, perfect in autumn. Wasn't lucky enough to see any salmon. Saw about 15 other people on the trail on a Saturday afternoon.

Gorgeous views throughout the hike. Might see a few people on either side of the river. It did feel longer than what is listed. Wasn’t steep at all and anyone can do it. Also it gets very rocky towards the end!!

Nice trail alongside the Rogue River. Beautiful views the whole way. Half of the trail is pretty rocky so I had to watch my feet a lot & stop for the views. You can get to some small sandy beaches from the trail.
