It was a really lovely walk with nice scenery. The trail is flat, wide, and mostly paved, so it feels more like a good walk than a real hike. Would be great for families or those who struggle with less polished trails.

Wide trail that is mostly paved and flat. Lots of room for social distancing, and people were very respectful with regards to dogs being on leash. At the end, to get to Lucia Falls, you have to walk on the road a bit. Lucia is beautiful though and lots of opportunity for climbing rocks with the water rushing around you. It’s a fish breeding area so no touching the water though! Free parking at both trail heads and trash cans-picnic spots galore!

It was a perfect stroll. I loved hearing the water right next you the entire time. Saw a few people. Not a whole lot. All dog owners had their dogs on a leash which was soooo excellent. My little two love hiking but the big dogs off leash scare them. Perfect day. Have fun and be safe!

Fun location to swim and take a walk to see the beautiful Moulton Falls. If you plan to swim, the water is cold but it’s worth it! Look out for the man made rope swing as well! Note that if you are planning to take family, getting to the water is difficult for small children. Highly recommend supervision.

Really fun trail, beautiful sights and tons of stuff for the kiddos to stop and check out. Great midday hike, not too tough but enough of an exercise to feel good at the end of it. Love taking family here whenever they visit for the super accessible waterfalls and neat hidden treasures around this hike!

Really enjoyed this hike! Great running trail, clean , and lots of great swimming spots. The only down side is not very much parking.

If you’re looking to “walk on a road”, ride a bike or stroll with the family. You bet! If you want actually “hike” and be away from road noise and experience scenery, not so much. I’m the latter, hence three stars. Could easily be five from another person looking for the road more traveled!

Think of this area as a place to wander around. Lots of places to explore, places to lounge beside the river, and I recommend using the overflow parking lot by Sunset Falls Road. If your coming in from Vancouver/Camas/Washougal know it’s a haul and nothing direct about it. It is well worth it, stunning and peaceful.

Loved the bridge. Couldn’t find the waterfalls or are they just very small?

Pretty easy walk through the woods along the river. Nice wide trail that is well taken care of. It was 6.5 miles round trip from the lower parking to the parking lot at the other end.

Quick and easy trail! Went in the morning and only crossed paths with a few people. Definitely worth the drive to check out.

I went about a week ago and it was crowded - both parking lots were almost full. However the main trail on the side of the river is very wide so was easy to keep distance from people. Views of the river are very pretty. It’s close to a busy road though so not very quiet. I was hoping to take a detour up Bell Mountain trail to get some exercise but entrance was Closed due to construction is what the sign said

I started out doing this trail but took a turn up Bells and took another turn off to circle my way back. The last few miles are access roads all rock

It was so beautiful! Very nicely kept and was able to get some wonderful outdoor pictures! This is a family friendly adventure! Only thing that sucked was someone let their dog take multiple poops in the parking lot by the cars. Be careful before getting out of the car lol

Didn't have high expectations going into this walk/hike but was soooooo glad I went. I wasn't sure if the trail would be open because of Covid and I was concerned of amount of people that would be there if it was. Went 2 weeks ago and it was open (yay) and very lightly trafficked which was amazing. Trail itself is very wide (guessing about 10-12ish ft across) so felt very safe passing other people but only saw maybe a dozen people or so over the course of 4 miles (didn't do the entire thing). The trail connects to some smaller trails that are much longer if you are into that. Awesome sights include a bigger waterfall, lots of little waterfalls, old bridge, and railroad tracks along the river. Highly recommend of you need some fresh air.

Parking lots full due to everyone "social distancing", so we parked on the side of the highway. The trails were not overloaded at all. plenty of space, and off trail excursions with our dog. The water was very clear and the waterfall was roaring, had an amazing time.
