A retreat from the desert heat provides a great swimming spot for everyone! If you're tired of climbing at Smith Rock or burned out from mountain biking in the summer heat, then head on over to Steelhead Falls for a quick dip and a hike along a quiet desert river.

Fantastic falls! Short hike with great payoff! Good for families (youngest is 10). Bring your camera!

easy to get to for a quick and easy walk. the falls are a nice place for a quick rest before turning around. looked like the trail went on although we didn't go past the falls. looked like a nice place for fishing along the trail and swimming just past the falls

Great trail. Took my kiddos ages 12 and 9 they did awesome and enjoyed the hike, I think their favorite part was seeing a bald eagle.

Short beautiful hike. Did it today with the husband and minions, ages 6 and 8. Only .05 miles to the falls from the trailhead. We’ll be back when it’s warmer.

This is a popular trail that draws large summertime crowds. The falls are beautiful and many people swim near them. a short ways past the falls there is a small sandy beach at the rivers edge.

Easy to moderate. With the grade, the heat and loose dirt can try to sneak up on you. The view of the falls is fantastic.

The view of the falls was excellent but I'd rate it moderate for seniors and kids due to unstable foot holds - especially as you get closer to the falls. A great hike with several opportunities to get as wet as you want in the river. I'd go again!

This is a good hike. The trail is a bit worn out but if you're careful you should be fine. Take plenty if water. Pack out what you pack in and have fun. The falls and the river are awesome.

I wouldn't say kid friendly, tween friendly though

It's really only 1 mile total out and back, which makes it especially nice when it's so hot to know you're that much closer to the falls! Several spots to cliff jump or dip your toes. It's beautiful...busy on the weekends.

For this out of shape 60 yr old this was moderate because of the up & downhill climb. Not long and views were great

Loved this very easy hike, but I love water and falls. Will keep in mind for easy hike and fishing for my mom. Dogs loved all the water!

Absolutely beautiful-- but icy right now! We struggled on our way down with just hiking boots but made it alright. You might want to wait a bit to try again. Nice and short and good for older kids! The junipers are amazing.

This was a beautiful hike, however I would not call it kid friendly for kids very young. Most of it had drop-offs down to the river, which made me very nervous with my 2 and 5 year olds. My 10 year old did pretty good.

nice short hike with some pools to wade in, a small beachy area and some cliffs to jump off, below the falls.
