Easy stroll to Henline Falls. To the right of Henline Falls there is an old mine shaft. At some point a steel gate was installed and at a later point a small section was cut out of the gate allowing access. If you are looking for a more challenging venture recommend the 'Ogle Mountain Trail' which is before you arrive at the actual falls and forks to the right and up. It will lead you to the top of the waterfall and onto many other falls. Google "Family Falls" for more info.
Great trail for mountain biking, everyone was super friendly.
I wish more places embraced mountain bikers like Bend does. They have a 3 to 1 ratio of mountain bikers to hikers showing up at all of their trail maintenance and trail building days. We stayed in town and the food and breweries were fantastic. This is a town that knows how to attract nature loving tourists who enjoy all sorts of outdoor activities. We will definitely be back!
It's actually 7mi from where you park but it's still a beautiful hike! Also fun to snowshoe
The trail to the top of the waterfall is nice but a better trail can take you behind and under the waterfall.
Nice hike through through a sort of Hansel & Gretel like forest. It's a shared trail with bikes, so be aware.
Awesome, easy trail with very light traffic on a weekday besides a couple of mountain bikes. Would be a great trail for a run or a dog that doesn't mind bikes.
Nice easy trail. Worth the hike. I am going to go mountain biking next time.
