The pictures don't do this beautiful hike Justice. The falls are incredible.

Amazing waterfall! Better than multnomah with 10 times fewer people. NF-3062 is a bit dodgy if you're driving a car but it is definitely worth braving a few potholes for the seclusion and incredible views.

Worth every step!!

What's great hike! The first leg is pretty easy as you follow the river. Cross two bridges and you'll start hearing the waterfall. Holy cow is it impressive!! Way more so in person! As you go back you can actually get to the top of it by taking rd 62. I think it added about a mile total (check my route) but it was well worth it!

2nd time I've done this trail. The waterfall is amazing! Easy trail along a river. Still lots of snow, NF road is closed, had to walk 2 miles through a good deal of snow to get to the trail head. TONS
of fallen trees. Be prepared for a work out if going soon!!

This was a spectacular hike with a beautiful waterfall. The drive in is worth mentioning. There is about 2 miles of dirt / gravel road that you have to travel on before arriving at the parking lot and it's full of very deep pot holes. I had to drive about 5 miles an hour to see, avoid, and drive through them. The trail is basically uphill all the way to the falls. It's very pretty in autumn. There is a nice area to hang out at the falls and enjoy a snack or just take in the view. Large rocks cover this area and are pretty interesting to look at as well. Highly recommend this hike.

The waterfall is beautiful. There are a couple of places not he trail that are very narrow due to erosion. It was (for over 65) crowd a challenging hike.

Difficulty: 2/10
Waterfall: 10/10

I didn't do the full loop, and instead made it an out-and-back hike from trailhead to waterfall, back to the trailhead the same way I came. This hike was very easy, hardly any incline. Didn't really break a sweat. You might have to cross some wet rocks so be prepared for slipperiness.

Waterfall was the best I've seen in my entire life. Visited it the same weekend I visited many along the Columbia River Gorge and this one easily takes the cake.

Easier hike that keeps you along a stream for most of the walk. Lots of shade with great old growth forest endings with a great waterfall at the end - rivals Multnomah for baddest waterfall of the Northwest. Bring a lunch and make a date out of it!
