Easy to slightly moderate trail. The last road to reach the falls is a dirt road with a lot of pot holes. Higher vehicles are encouraged. The swimming hole right at the beginning of the trail is excellent! The waterfall has a great relaxation feel to it. Plenty of boulders to sit and admire this gorgeous falls. We brought our snacks and swimming shorts! Excellent way to spend part of your day!

One of the most scenic and picturesque hikes I have ever been on. The whole trail follows a river so there are views the entire time. The waterfall itself is so magnificent. I have been on many hikes, and this is still the best waterfall I have seen. Would highly recommend.

The worst part about this trail is navigating through all the potholes on the road leading to the trailhead. The hike starts out as a steady grade but becomes much steeper the closer you get to the falls. It's definitely worth it to see it through to the falls though! It makes for a nice spot to rest, have a cool drink and snack, and take some photos before heading back. This was a great weekday hike with only a few people on the trail. I would recommend avoiding this trail on the weekends as I'm sure it is heavily trafficked.

By far, one of the most beautiful rides and spots we have experienced. While the trail is rated moderate, there are sections of the climb with more than a 20% grade, which is super steep on a mountain bike. Nonetheless, the trails are in pristine condition and offer some amazing hill climbs and descents. We started at the trailhead for falls creek and did a combination of trail 152 and 152A. It is a busy trail on weekends, but the best lighting and solitude is earlier on weekday mornings.

Beautiful falls. Easy gradual uphill trail. moderate traffic but far less crowded than any Oregon side falls. The road is decent but potholes are frequent. the parking area is currently free use but may require a BE Forest pass in the future.
