I have to start with the aroma! It's a wonderful sweet smell comparable to fine fragrance. I wish I could bottle it up. It's a Beautiful maintained trail along side the creek. Cute benches and picnic tables here and there. Feels a bit magical in some areas

We drove right to the falls after reading the reviews from this trail. There are several trails you can choose from once you reach the parking area... keep in mind it is $5 to park within the marked parking area! Tumalo Falls was gorgeous. Trails to the top overlooking the falls are breathtaking and you can even hike down to the waterfall itself and be underneath it. The hike down to the falls can get a bit narrow at times, so watch your step and take your time. Even if you don't hike all the way down, there are still some great views along this trail. Great day spent hiking in the Tumalo Creek area for all ages. We definitely recommend!

There is much more to this trail system above Bend. Do some additional research and it will make it even a more fulfilling hike.

A very nice trail amongst a network of many trails. Great to do with kids (we didn't do it with kids, but saw lots of families). Lots of little places to stop along the river, picnic benches scattered throughout. A great area to picnic. The "hard" part would be at the very end where the trail narrows and gets steeper. Not hard for hikers. But it would be hard for mountain bikers. It was a very enjoyable trail very close to bend.

this was a lovely trail. nothing difficult about it. flat and well maintained. the hike rooms along the Tumalo Creek. I love hearing the sound of rushing water on a hike. a great trail for running. didn't make it to the falls because we had a time limit.

Good trail. Well marked. Lots to see. Worth the drive out to it if you're visiting the area.

Not really sure why it's rated difficult but it was a good afternoon stroll if you want something pretty but won't make your legs feel like jello. No significant elevation gains or anything, no need for heavy gear

Green changing scenery with a beautiful waterfall at the end. My favorite part was the hike down to the water fall. But be careful! A little steep, slippery, and rocky. Very enchanting.
