Great trail for a quick hike. The waterfall was great we almost missed it it was really high and close to the trail. The dog loved the river. There were some great places to swim and to jump off the footbridge. Love this hike!

Nice trail, visitor center was fun to visit on the way back (opens at 10). Started at 7am and had the trail to ourselves! Nice river/beautiful forest. No fees for parking or visitor center. Trail mostly dry no mud, but smaller crossings with some water

Great trail - will always be a favorite of mine! Nice and short, my mapping is a little extended due to helping someone down the mtn. Really important to wear proper hiking shoes.. very muddy and slick!

Trail is in great condition. It was super cloudy when I went so not many views, but a hike for the rain since there is so much cover.

It was a great hike, although it was a bit muddy and wet. Probably not best for little kids when it is that wet and muddy. The hike was a nice mix of up and down (moderate) and the waterfall kind of surprises you in the middle of the trail. We didn't see anyone else there. Great hike.

Very nice trail. It is not clearly marked, but if you follow this map it is super easy.

This is a great short hike. Go early and you will have complete solitude. There is a good amount of parking at the trailhead and restrooms. There is no cell service at all. Lots of shade. The trail is near the road at the start but after a while the road noise fades.

Great for families, we went on a beautiful sunny Oregon day so the trail was moderately trafficked. Plenty of parking and well marked trails.

Great for families and dogs as there are many side trails leading to the river.

Nice trail. I went mid-morning and only saw one other person on the trail. Upon return there were a ton of people showing up. The earlier the better for this one likely because of its accessibility. It was a little close to the HWY and there were a few awkward areas for dogs. I was with two dogs and we had to go under the small bridge with one railing. Towards the end of the trail there is the sandy bank with a perfect doggy swimming area for any one who is looking. It is the perfect distance for a quick adventure with the pups for a few hours.

Trail is open. Nice trail with many areas for river access along the way. There are a few areas on the trail with steep drop offs and the foliage along the trail may be a problem for smaller children and dogs. When you get to the area where the trail comes out onto a gravel road you'll need to cross the bridge and the trail starts again on the east side of the road. This is a good hike for all ages with only a small section of steep switchbacks near the falls.

Closed due to weather as of may, bridge is out of something.

This is a very gentle trail for beginners and children. Returning back to the Forestry Center made for a nice end to the trail. We hiked from the center to the Wilson Falls and back, making this just right over 3 miles there and back.

this was a nice hike. did the point to point from the footbridge back to the visitors center. easy to follow and nice views of some very pretty river. it's been a mild winter in Tillamook, so it is very accessible .
