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.

Trail is in great condition. Perfect escape from quarantine with an absolutely stunning payoff at the end. One of the pretties waterfalls I’ve seen - very doable with kids.

This hike was so very beautiful. Don’t be swayed by Oregon rain. The trail was great. It followed a river, with beautiful sites. But please clean up after yourself and your pets.

Must go, quite an easy hike. A bit rocky but the waterfall at the end is definitely worth it.

A few friends and I drove 3 hours each way from the Tri-Cities, WA. to hike Tamanawas Falls on Memorial Day. We were really surprised that we were the first and only car there at 8am. The parking lot and trail got quite a bit busier on the way back but the views were fantastic as always. 60° and very light rain. The money box to pay for parking was gone but there were no signs saying we had to pay for day use. We did notice broken car window glass on the ground in a few different places in the.parking lot and our first thoughts were car break-ins so we took our valuable with us just in case. The trail was in great shape. There sure was a lot of trash along the way including a bunch of full dog poop bags that people left behind, unfortunately. Happy Memorial Day friends!

05/2024 Trail is in great condition. A few muddy patches but nothing major. Relatively easy with little elevation gain. Basic out and back with the midway point being the falls themselves. Great view of the falls. Restrooms closed due to COVID 19. Most people were not wearing masks. Trailhead is easy to find and so is parking. Great day for a hike!

So pretty and easy! I am glad I brought my spikes because it was pretty icy out and muddy.

So beautiful! It’s very icy. I don’t recommend trying to do this without crampons. Trekking poles were helpful too.

Loved hiking in the snow to the falls. Magical! Bring traction for your shoes and poles might be nice in a few spots too.

The hike and the waterfall were magical! Very very slippery trail though, we would have turned back if we didn't have our microspikes. Note that the restrooms by the parking lot were locked and could not be used.

Beautiful trail on a nice blue bird day. However, we didn’t have spikes on. We only hiked halfway until it got too slippery. Will come back to finish this hike when I get spikes for my shoes.
