Great short trail, very beautiful waterfall. You have to climb down rocks to get close to it.

Steep but short hike. Pretty crowded but we were still able to find an area we could sit in the water away from everyone.

Nice short hike down (about 200 yards). May be steep for some. The park is free (part of Oregon Parks, but free). Host is present. Bathrooms are clean, lots of grass and bench to have lunch. Parking is sufficient (20 cars, plus overflow by gate) The trail down is dirt :) The Celestial falls was flowing nicely today.

Short, steep trail. Loose rocks so be sure to get good footing on the way down. The remnants of the old power facility are really interesting to look at. The falls are nothing short of mesmerizing. If you continue past the first waterfall, you’ll trek through sage brush and eventually wind up at the other one. You can climb across rocks to sit beside it, just be careful! Absolutely beautiful place!

Went on Father's day at about 8:30am. Only 2 vehicles there. Trail was basically empty. Short trail with good views. We didn't explore the property because we had kids. There are rocks on the trail for grip but some sandy areas which makes it easy to slip.

Nice waterfall view, easy hike to second view. Little harder on the smaller kids.

Fun little adventure! Not much of a hike, but lots of places to explore and the drive out is always beautiful. Waterfalls alone are worth the day trip. All that wild energy is so cleansing in person enjoy!

First time here today, May 25th. Not many people and very picturesque falls, river, and rock formations surrounding the river.

Beautiful waterfalls and great views. Trail wasn’t in great condition and was difficult to follow at times.

Amazing waterfall my only complaint is I wish the trail was longer because it's such a beautiful location! Get there at Sunrise for maximum beauty.

I arrived in the afternoon and no one was here which was perfect. I recommend going down to the abandoned building. If you continue to hike left, that trail will lead you to another waterfall. If you hike down to the main falls, watch your step. May be difficult for some to climb down but it's possible. Wet, icy, slippery. There is a cave below that lines up perfectly with the falls. Climb inside and hear the echoes of the falls. You're able to get close up and personal with the waterfall, misty if you go all the way to the bottom. Worth the climb and trip!

Beautiful, quick hike that we completed prior to our rafting trip in Maupin. (Its about a 30 minute drive from most of the rafting companies— River Drifters, Forward Paddle, Imperial Rafting Co). We went during the first weekend of September and the falls/ water were a milky brown, but still beautiful! Our raft guide told us that later in the summer, the falls will be less full and brown as it is all glacial run-off at this point. Earlier in the season, it is likely to be full and clear from the fresh snow-melt. But we still saw some people swimming in it though! Recommend spending some time checking out the old hydroelectric plant while you’re there! Easy enough hike that took about 40-45 minutes total (including the copious amounts of photos, we took).

Went early in the morning. Amanzing and cool history with the abandoned 1901 Hydroelectric plant at the bottom. Water was very bown with sediment, but was still awesome.
