Water flows vary from full-fan in spring to a narrowed spout in late summer. The first half mile of the trail is wheelchair accessible.

A restroom and additional parking are across the road.

At milepost 16 on Hwy. 138 (east of Roseburg), turn south on Little River Road (County Road 17) and travel for 11 miles to trailhead parking and footbridge. A restroom and additional parking are across the road.

although beautiful, this is absolutely NOT wheelchair accessible. seems so for first quarter mile and then 5 steep stairs to cross second bridge. not sure why it was rated as accessible. seems good for non wheelchair users

This was a beautiful, mostly easy hike. We had hikers from ages 10 to 55. We loved the shady path and took the hike in the heat of the day, but the forest trees provided the perfect cover and lower temps. It was so pretty. I’m from Utah where there are beautiful canyons but this hike takes the cake. I would hike every day in Utah if it was like this. The river and bridges along the way were lovely and the falls at the end were worth the time! Bathrooms were across the street from the trailhead in the overflow parking lot. My only complaint (and I only share so you can prepare, it’s totally worth doing) is there were some Muddy parts that were unavoidable. We just chose to sink in a little and keep going. Totally worth it! Glad we didn’t turn back!

This is a great hike. The entire trail is beautiful, wooded and follows Wolf Creek. The trail is muddy in sections with one decline that is particularly muddy on the way out. Not stroller or wheelchair accessible. A little over 3 miles round trip and around 300 feet of elevation.

Beautiful hike. Beautiful area. It was a warm day but plenty of shade. Went on 6/18 and it was pretty muddy. I wouldn’t say it was wheelchair or stroller friendly as there were exposed roots, rocks, mud, steps, side hills and a narrow part of the trail that maybe had slid out. We ended up carrying the little ones out because the strollers were just not working out. Take the baby in a hiking backpack! But don’t miss out on the hike!

Not a long hike. Trail had a few downed trees but was otherwise clear and pleasant. The falls are worth the effort.

Trailhead was easy to find. Very well marked and maintained. This is a perfect trail for hiking with kids (6 and 8). Mostly flat until the last little bit where there is some elevation gain. (All downhill on the way back!) We clocked it at more like 3.2 miles round trip so beware of that. Trail was a little muddy in places but very doable. One small bridge was broken but there was a walk around and it looks like they are in the process of fixing it. Overall perfect experience!

This is a fairly easy trail it does have some small hills. The walk along the trail is very pretty. Once you get to the end the waterfalls is real gem.

4/25/20: This was an absolutely beautiful hike! There were some pretty slippery parts, but it wasn’t hard to maneuver. I went down to the waterfall and it was so worth it, so I recommend that if you’re able to get down there. The whole hike was so peaceful!

Another pretty hike with a pot of forest life growing all around. Trail was a bit slippery and part of the creek washed up to the trail and made it difficult to pass through. Other than that it was a great hike!

Amazingly beautiful hike!! Slight elevation at the end when near the falls, just keep going! Perfect for dogs too. Wonderfully maintained and bridges to cross. Strollers not suggested, unless you have another adult to help lift it over logs. You can swim at the bottom of the falls.

Great trail for everyone! Lots of dogs and you can access both pools at both falls. the first pool had a really steep entry point. The primary pool (second pool) is just amazingly clear and worth a dip.
