Muddy in sections when the trail warmed up. Icy along the creek but a beautiful day for a hike!

great trail. first time. the recording stopped part way through and I didn't notice until much later in the hike. we did the full loop. it was frosty and super sunny. the trail was clean and not slippery that I could tell. mostly flat with a couple good climbs. goes down to the creek. trees are amazing. went about 10:30 am. only saw one other group. easy trail.

Cold but beautiful hike. Trail is well marked w a variety of trail into the canyon along the creek and then a climb back out through the wooded rim.

Great trail. We took the 5 mile loop trip down to the creek and back on the wagon road. It was overcast so not a great distance view but the early winter colors were subtle and beautiful. I was concerned about the steepness of the creek trail but with poles it was perfectly fine.

Went on a Wednesday and dd not meet another hiker. Nice scenery of Canyon views, boulders on the slope and the northwest lower meadow at the bottom of the Canyon is nice. The cloudy nature of the creek is due to glacial flour from the glaciers high up on the Sisters mountains.

This is a great hike to do earlier in the day. There is not a lot of shade, but if you want to do a shorter, shadier hike you could continue for about a mile along the creek before you head up to the ridge. It’s a great place for your dogs (or your feet!) to cool off before heading up, too. Walking on top of the ridge gets hot during the day. Once you make it to the other side of the ridge, it is a steep climb down to the waterfalls. Definitely manageable, but be aware of this. Our dogs loved cooling off in the water at the falls, and along the creek during the first mile of the hike. This was our second time doing this hike, and we were pleasantly surprised that there weren’t too many other people. Easy access from the road as well.

We did this hike on 6/20. It was hot. I would dispute the “easy” rating as there were some really steep sections with slippery sandy footing. I was glad I had a stick and wished I had 2. When I see “all skill levels,” I think I could take my 74 year old hip replacement patient mom on that trail- this would have been dangerous for her. We really enjoyed the views of the canyon. We saw a lizard, but it didn’t photograph well. We didn’t see anyone else on the whole hike- maybe they’re smart enough not to hike at midday in the desert.

Nice late morning/early afternoon hike. We saw one other person on a Wednesday, and there were no other cars at the trailhead. Had lunch on a big rock right on the creek. It’s not isolated—there are mansions overlooking the canyon across Wychus Creek—but they don’t interfere with the canyon vistas, the sound of the creek, and views of the mountains. Nice wildflowers and good information at the trailhead and signage along the path. Dusty even in June, so be prepared as summer progresses.

The trailhead is easily accessible and was open as of mid June. The gravel road is in good condition. There's an out house at the trailhead. The walk itself is okay with some nice views and lots of flowers. There are a lot of houses across the canyon. When we did the creek portion, we couldn't see the creek because the trail kept us away from it. Dogs do need to be leashed.

Nice trail, great views of the canyon. Tons of giant fuzzy bee’s everywhere so beware!

There were some muddy spots in the shade since the snow is still melting, but the weather was perfect. Dogs are allowed on leash.

Trail in good shape even after heavy rain night before. Good views. Easy to access from highway. Not much cover so not great on hot day.

Not the best trail to be on in the middle of August; hot, dry and dusty with no cover. To be expected I guess, but if you want to see wildflowers in bloom, now is not the time. Not a very colorful hike, unless your favorite color is brown. The portion that parallels the river is much prettier, and the view of the canyon from the rim is quite nice. Otherwise not much to see here in my opinion. If you hike this trail counter clockwise, be prepared for a bit of a challenge with a pretty steep ascent during the final mile of your hike.

First to Review

Hiked Rim and Creek trail loop last weekend with the family. Easy hike - about 4miles. Best to do now as I’ll bet in the summer this hike would be brutally hot and dusty. Lot’s of nice picnic spots in the canyon.
