Despite the barricade and closure, we drove down about 1.5 miles and parked off-road and then hiked to the trailhead. This made it a bit more than 5 miles round trip. We had perfect weather! This is a fairy easy hike with a well taken care of trail. A few sturdy bridges to cross, 3-4 switchbacks, and great waterfall at the end.

Beautiful, quick hike. We went early so only ran into a few people. One of the most beautiful waterfall hikes in the area though for sure.

Word of advice is go early! I arrived around 9:30 in time to find parking. A few people on the trail but not crowded yet. Pretty easy hike, not a lot of room at the waterfall to enjoy it for long but it was gorgeous! More foot traffic coming down. Parking lot was completely full, people had to park on the side of the road.

Hiked March 12, 2020- a little muddy in spots, begins with an access road and turns into a rocky trail with a steep edge. Is easy for active folks and the mossy rocks and waterfalls are an incredible reward for such a short hike. 2 miles round trip.

Saturday March 7, 2020 12:30pm: This was an easy hike with very little incline and only a few spots that were rocky. Barely anyone around during our hike, falls and waters ways were very beautiful. Was a bit wet due to earlier rain, but just navigated through the rocky parts slowly. Definitely a must if you ask me, can only imagine once spring hits how beautiful this hike will be. Be aware when you park at the trailhead there is a $5 charge (cash) to use the park.

Round two for me! I arrived around 9am and had the trail to myself. The trail was muddy and wet in the rocky areas. Be carful, very slippery. Otherwise, this was a beautiful hike to say the least.

This is easily my favorite trail in the Gorge. A perfect quick hike with a stunning waterfall.

This is the perfect day hike. We took our time and it still only took an hour. Also tons of little streams and mini waterfalls everywhere along the trail. Highly recommend!

Short, extremely easy hike to a beautiful waterfall. I completely forgot it was a holiday, so the trail was an absolute zoo full of families and teenagers. (I prefer quiet hikes )

Easy out and back trail. Lots of people, dogs, and kids. Hiked it just fine while wearing a baby, as did many other families. Not stroller friendly.

Possibly the first hike I’ve been on where the views makes the crowd worth it. One of those hikes where every minute you get an even better view. The trail head does stop short at the waterfall so go on a day when you expect fewer people. If you’re willing to sit on wet rocks or fallen tree trunks... great lunch spot
