easy at first, but gets tricky towards the end. My husband and I are novice hikers and got a little lost at the end. Thank goodness for the alltrails app!

Super Easy to get to. Black waters were safe, questionable but safe.

It is dirty there. People don’t take care of the place so you’ll see trash around. I walked on the trail and saw a ton of alcohol cans and boxes and McDonalds in the trees.

Beautiful place but amount of clothes and trash everywhere is disturbing. There no place to really park. The gravel/dirt road is just a little wider.

awesome place!

Not much of a hike but this is a great swimming hole. I went on Sunday, July 29 and there were quite a few people there. There are ledges where you can fling yourself into the water. The water is cold and clear.

Made part of this trip July 21, 2018. From the road to the river is an easy 20 minute walk. Once at the river, however, is another story. Trees are downed trees everywhere, even some of the overhangs have collapsed. The trail, I believe, crosses the river back and forth. It's easier to walk in the river. Get you some cheap booties. The Quillan Cascades are very cool, even the Big Cascades. But if you go any further BEWARE! Even if there is/was a trail chances are that the pigs will have it all torn up. I could not find the trail out so I went down to Ship Rock then back up Thompson to the road.

Super fun swimming hole and great place to jump of a cliff

Note that the road to the trailhead turns from asphalt to gravel and after a rain, can contain significant ruts. I took my RV and had to back out of the area for about 200 feet in order to turn around.

Easy hike on the way down since it’s all downhill. Not long before you see the waterfalls. Trail is pretty easy to follow, but no markings or signs. We didn’t pick the best day to go to see water falling, but everything else was nice and no one else was out.

Beautiful waterfall and surrounding river area. Getting to the river from the road is a little steep and rocky and very slippery. I was glad we packed light and had water shoes. Nice beach spot to eat lunch. Got there at 11 AM on a Wednesday and had the place to ourselves for about an hour.

easy hike, beautiful place, just wear hiking shoes and not regular shoes.

the falls are a gorgeous cascading stair step, but it was very crowded and there were beer cans strewn in the creek.

the main falls are beautiful getting down to them was a little nerve racking with a 4, 6, 7, 9, 10, and 12 year old. had to cross the water several times and not all the feet servived. the trail is overgrown and a hiker ahead of us going in met a timber rattler.

Loved this hike!!! My 4 year old golden retriever kept up really well too! The waterfall is amazing. It’s such a hidden gem!

Truly majestic! We went a mile up stream from the falls and found an old old man made dame and old Forrest signs grown into the trees. A great hike all around.

The trail was easygoing for about a mile, but then there were some tricky spots. I would not recommend this trail for the very young or the elderly. Some climbing experience is helpful.

beautiful place. Trail is no more than a foot path. a few small falls before get to the main falls.

Awesome place you need to see it

Always a favorite peaceful place and a good swimming hole for the kids in the summer.

Had a great time today with my family. Beautiful waterfalls.

Falls are right off road. I imagine this place is crowded in the summer. Volunteer group was there cleaning up trash...it's too easy to get to honestly.

Nice waterfalls, particularly after some rain. Stair step waterfalls down to creek.

I hiked this with my two boys (6 and 9) and it was awesome. The hike to the waterfalls was pretty easy. The are some cool trees to look at. There were a lot of thorny plants on the path, so I recommend wearing pants. Once we got to the waterfalls we hiked down them and crossed the stream in several places. It was a very beautiful hike. The most fun was off trail hiking along the falls.

This was such a beautiful hike! The first part is through some pines and not all that spectacular. Then you hear the water and the entire scenery changes into this magical place!

We started to take our dog, but we are glad we didn’t. He is older and this would have been very challenging on him, but a younger, energetic dog would have loved it.

Wonderful short and easy trail that takes you a large stairstrp cascade. Follow the trail further downstream and climb down for a different view and a hidden secret falls across the river.

easy trail ... Beautiful waterfalls... when you reach creek cross over and pickup the trail to the right... follow it to Parker falls
