This is a fun hike only took a little over an hour or so very rocky tho so be cautious when walking as well as very muddy so definitely treacherous after rainfall. On the way in it’s 60% uphill and then downhill on the way down to the falls, fun for family and pets too! The falls itself are really pretty perfect for some nice photos!

very busy trail, but a beautiful waterfall at the end and creekside all the way.

Beautiful! Agree that it’s a great hike if you don’t want to hike all day but still want The Gorge experience. I will take visitors on this one.

If you only have time for a couple miles in the gorge, THIS IS THE ONE! Most short hikes in the gorge are just the “green tunnel” until the awesome waterfall. This one is different. It follows the creek from the waterfall the entire time and has a couple really cool features. Plus the last third of the hike is super cool and unique terrain. Of course the waterfall is spectacular too. The incline is just enough to get your heart pumping but not challenging. Highly recommend this hike if you’re looking for a quick one. The hike itself took about 35-40 min. Leave some time to relax at the falls though. :)

Nice secluded hike. I’d give it 5 stars if it was a clear day. It was kinda cloudy so I wasn’t able to see the mountains at the viewpoint, but still beautiful nonetheless.

Absolutely loved this trail! So beautiful! Easy for my 10 year old, but there are some drop off edges near the trail to watch out for. So many picture-worthy stops along the trail. ♡

Fantastic hike with a rewarding view of the Gorge. Both the Nick Eaton and Gorton trails are mildly overgrown; following the trail is not an issue but do wear long pants as others have suggested. Took us 4h 20min hiking time to complete.

It is a bit more challenging than “easy” due to the uphill portions. Clear path. Excellent directional signs. Nice to have a destination - the falls at the end.

Beautiful hike! Water shoes make it even more fun. Bring plenty of water to drink. The trail gets a bit rocky and narrow and steep, but there were children and seniors handling it fine. :)

The first 1/4 was burnt in a fire, road noise is present but many beautiful viewpoints. Terrain is steep, this is a difficult trail. Once you get higher the forest is nicer as it remains for the duration of the hike. Top is a cell tower, which is very anti climatic despite breathtaking views.

Super overgrown in many places after 2 years of no maintenance. Hard to find trail at times. Still worth doing for the views.

This has always been one of my favorite hikes that has gotten really popular over the years. I took my 5 year old who last hiked the trail over 2 years ago before it the fire. The trail can be very narrow in places, and because there is less vegetation the drop offs are quite steep. I held my son’s hand tightly for almost the entire hike. The waterfalls are beautiful, I love picnicking by the water, but I will be cautious with bringing children here in the future. I am curious how the trail will fare once the rain starts. The trail is still very popular (on a Thursday!), and we ended up parking a half mile up the road at Toothrock Trailhead.

I am beyond excited that my favorite trail is open again! Thank you so much to everyone who worked so hard to get the trail back in working order.

Hiked this 9/4/2019 with my dog & partner, took us 3.5hrs with 1/2hr lunch break & started the hike going up the paved path to the viewpoint. Gorgeous panoramic views up top of the 5 surrounding mountains. Trail was absolutely beautiful with the most amount of mushrooms I'd seen ever: lotsa russulas, red belt conks, poisonous amanitas, a couple oysters, and some corals. No major views through the hike, just lovely forest energy! I'd say this is an easy-moderate hike. Saw no one else on the actual loop trail, seemed like everyone just went up to the viewpoint. Did notice a few planes flying overhead, some bugs near the dry creekbeds, lots of spiderwebs & right at the end of the hike before you hit the road, there was someone illegally shooting nearby.

Nice and easy stroll down into the crater if starting from the parking lot. Might recommend starting on the "exit" to get the section along the highway over with in the beginning. Excellent rest point along a creek near the bridge at the bottom of the crater.

September Tuesday, afternoon The directions to the trailhead from AllTrails in Apple Maps takes you literally to the start of the trail. It is a gravel road that continues into private property. I parked in the neighborhood just before and walked a short distance to the trailhead and began the hike. The trail wasn’t too crowded. I saw 2 other day hikers and a handful of NOBO PCT hikers. The trail looks to be recovering from the 2017 Gorge Fire pretty well but watch your step for exposed roots and keep an eye on some of the burned trees (especially on windy days). Some of the soil is looser than expected in the rocky parts but definitely doable. I’d recommend a trail runner at least if not a hiking shoe/boot. The trail is easy to follow - just stay with the PCT signs when you get to the construction area. The falls were lovely and created a nice, cool breeze. I say on the edge of the concrete bridge and admired it for a bit.

Wow! What an amazing and beautiful trail! Hiking in Oregon; along The Gorge, is always a treat! Knowing that the summit of was at about 5,000 feet, I knew it would be a workout! But, the body loved every moment of it! I took the counter clockwise route that was recommended by previous posts; but due to time and enjoying the waterfalls along the way, I was only able to due the out and back. Next time, I go out there I'll be sure to make sure that I have time to enjoy a dip in the lake! Plus, the other treat was driving home and enjoying the sunset along The Gorge!
