I would do this hike again but with no kids. The pictures didn’t do justice on how close you come to the edge of a drop off. We didn’t finish the hike due to how dangerous it became for the kids. ( we brought 5 kids under the age of 6. ) let’s just say I was completely uptight and uneasy the whole time. However if you are going with a young teen or adult it’s perfect. Very beautiful

Beautiful!

Mostly Shaded all year round. Some people are expecting the word Falls to live up to its name. There is no Water fall at the end if this hike. it is more like a Gorge, especially when water levels are high. It is neat to watch rafters navigate through as well as Large Salmon Jumping. Young kids should be watched closely on some sections where the trail narrows and edge is steep. This is a great day hike.

This is definitely a moderate trail. Lots of rock formations to go over and through. Some water to walk through at times, but easy enough to get through. Beautiful views and the waterfall was breathtaking! Worth the strenuous hike at times.

Beautiful day and beautiful trail. Lots of hikers out with dogs. The falls are beautiful but you need to stand in the right spot to see the salmon.

Great day hike. Well maintained and easy to follow. You have a view of the river the whole time. Had a great time with two dogs. Saw lots of rafters on the river and a couple other hikers along the way.

we really liked this trail. 2 adults and an 8 year old. we are glad we didn't bring our puppy though. Too Rocky to have to hold a pulling leash the whole time.

Great hike! Would recommend hiking shoes instead of tennis shoes and maybe some bug spray. Amazing views and wildlife!

A little rocky in spots but well worth it!

Beautiful scenery with regular access to the river, which was great for my dog on a hot day. Lots of poison oak and blackberry. Falls were not quite what I expected, so I accidentally passed them and continued too far along the river. I wasn't sure where the trail actually ended, but it must have been a bit past the pit toilet.

One of my personal favorites! The start is a little rough and rocky but the mellows out after a mile or so. Great views all the way. It can be quite hot during the summer months so bring water or a good filter. Whiskey Creek cabin is 3 miles in and makes for a good first destination. Bring good shoes too as the trail can be rocky and rough on feet. Enjoy!

Have hiked this a couple of times. It is a narrow trail at times, a little rocky but that's why it's rated moderate. It's actually not a very difficult hike to make and it's very enjoyable. Love this hike! Super popular with the locals.

This is a rocky, seldom flat trail that usually travels high above the Rogue River on cliff sides. The views are nice and the Falls at the end of the trail are beautiful. I'd recommend a decent pair of hiking boots for the padding and ankle support because of the rough rocky trail. Lots of poison oak and watch for the occasional snake. This four mile out-and-back will give you some decent exercise.

Really fun trail that twists along the hillside above the Rogue River. One or two places where a fallen tree or stream blocked the path, but it was still accessible with slight effort. Beautiful views, but the waterfall and rapids are pretty small.

Harder than I expected,some climbing and rough patches,and. very hot in the direct sun on several segments would not do in mid day. beautiful views, nice little waterfall and Sandy area to sit and eat.
