Very easy trail and is well maintained. Was able to walk through without feeling a need to stop. Seemed difficult for people with dogs because of the amount of people on labor day. Lots of poison oak the whole way as well. The waterfall is very relaxing and pretty.

I really enjoyed this trial. It is really easy and short. It looks completely dry in the way up to the falls, but once you get there, you’ll see that there is plenty of water, enough to enjoy the view. Make sure to bring some dry clothes because the two pools, upper and lower, look so attractive! I didn’t bring it and it was a shame. The place wasn’t crowded, just four people beside us.

I love this trail if I'm looking for a quick, easy walk to a pretty falls. Depending on when you go it can either be busy or very quiet. The mosquitos can get bad in the summer near the falls, but overall one of my favorites.

Easy hike and wheelchair/stroller accessible. My 4 year old had fun running ahead and reading the info signs along the trail. Rare to have the waterfalls alone during the summer & weekends.


We easily completed this trail and Falls Creek Falls in one day without complaints from the kids.

Easy hike. Beautiful drive if you are entertaining an out of town family.

My first trip to visit family in Oregon I was able to come see the falls. From Kentucky we hike all the time and this was a nice hike for our kids. Water was cold but that didn't stop them from getting in. Hope to visit again one day.

This is a well maintained and beautiful trail. The path is wide and there are placards identifying plant life along the trail. It’s an easy hike (myself age 44, my husband age 46, and my parents in their 70’s) easily walked the trail without getting out of breath. There’s an outhouse and a trash can at the trailhead and the parking lot has space for at least 7 cars. We didn’t see anyone on the trail until we headed back towards the car. The waterfall is beautiful. I highly recommend this hike.

Hiked this with my mom on Mother’s Day. Great for kids and old people. Very pretty wild flowers along the way. It was great seeing families out as well. Got lucky and got a parking spot as someone was leaving.

Easy hike with little signs that educate you about the plant life nAtive in the area. Loved the picnic table that is right by the river just down from waterfall. There is also a cute little bridge to and rocks to climb for a better view.

Smiokey due to wildfires but worth the short 1 mile in hike. Easy to navigate with kids.
