A short hike into the waterfall. The falls itself is a large falls with a large dry cave behind the falls. Rocks can be very slippery when wet so make sure to watch your step. The dry cave makes for a great finish to the hike and a great place to eat your lunch.

As others mentioned, a rockslide has the trail washed out just before the falls. I was able to get across with my 7 and 9 year old. We do a lot of hiking so the challenge didn't scare us- this may be a bit much for younger children or kids with minimal hiking experience. Otherwise, the trail is pretty simple, beautiful scenery from start to finish, and the falls are WELL worth the extra effort of getting over the rocks!

Simple and fun. Beautiful waterfall you can stand behind. Rock slide made things interesting but well worth climbing over it.

Really enjoyed this hike today! However, as some of the other reviews mentioned, because of the rockslide this trail is no longer an easy or small-child friendly hike. The slide is about a quarter-mile before the waterfall and it is pretty tricky to get around, but doable if you have good shoes on.

This was a decent hike. We paralleled the highway for a while, and I was starting to wonder if we should have taken a different trail. Hood River mutes the hwy noise a bit, but it's definitely still there. Then we turned off the road and the hike was much better.

Relatively short, you hike in along the North Fork creek. There was a rockslide at some point which has completely blocked the trail. It is passable, but a bit dangerous for some. Be careful!

Once past the rocks, you're practically at the falls. They are beautiful.

Shorter and less strenuous than I would have hoped for, but a good hike all the same.
