Started at Rooster Rock TH. Keep right at the fork.

My Fitbit tracked 2.7 miles to the summit and nearly 2,900ft elevation gain! The incline is relentless, especially towards the end. Which means the walk back down was tough on the knees. The view was nice, especially having it by ourselves.

Great trail with the river in view most of the time, the falls were great. It kinda kicked my but at the end man am I out of shape.

A very pretty area, the trail is very rough and similar to a dry creek bed in many places. There are lots of down trees and branches, today there was still some snow and between the down trees and snow we lost the trail in a couple spots. I think later in the season it will be amazing with wildflowers but also harder to discern where the unkempt trail is.

I tried going there a few days ago and ran into too much snow on the road about 1.5 miles from trailhead.

Great view of the three sisters.

Lot of snow drifts and the forest near the summit is still covered in snow so I would wait until summer.

It would be recommended to wear pants since the trail doesn’t appear to be maintained a whole lot.

Junctions are not marked on the trail so watch your GPS.

4 Parking spots near the trailhead and 2 spots further down the road.

Perfect. Amazing falls. Easy trail.

My daughter Jennifer and I were looking for an early-May overnight destination in the Oregon Cascades. The access road to the trailhead had several snow patches requiring decent clearance. This was our first trip into this area. We were thankful for our GPS to regain the trail after long stretches of snow. For the record, May 4 is a little early for this hike even in a low snow year. After watching the dog venture out onto the lake's thin ice cover, we decided to return to the trailhead and camp at a nearby campground

We weren’t sure if we found the loop trail but started at Sahalie Falls parking lot which is right at the falls. A Beautiful and big gushing waterfall. Then follow A beautiful trail along the water with many soots to stop and take photos. The trail was busy on Mother’s Day so get there early on the weekends. Very little parking too. But well worth the experience. We walked along the water until we got to Koosah Falls. Amazing. We had to turn around there due to needing to get back home. But well worth the drive and time.

Good easy hike, Wish it was longer. Almost think I missed something it was so short but very beautiful!

I've completed this a few times now, it's a short hike that is very easy to get to (driving and trailhead wise.) Steady uphill trail all the way to the falls. Still mud in May but that's expected everywhere. My biggest complaint is the bug factor because of the mud areas. For those who might not know/first time, stay to the right whenever it seems to fork off on the way to the falls. I love that the creek runs next to the trail the entire way.

If you decide to venture to the bottom of the falls it is steep and can be slick with mud. My two big dogs had no problem with the entire trail, and loved getting in the water at the falls!

Great short hike. Would have loved to have the dogs along. It was a little muddy however.

The falls are so beautiful! I was the only human in sight on a Wednesday morning.
Getting close to the falls really makes you feel the energy of the water and reflect on the lessons a river can teach us.

Short hike and has good fishing for brook trout. Always be on the lookout for black bears.

Great short hike. The trail was pretty muddy so have hiking boots or possibly rubber boots.

Very beautiful falls, and so easy to get to! It was very muddy and slippery when we did it, so a walking stick is advisable. You can catch it by campsite #18, or on the left as you approach the big day use area.

3/29/18 A beautiful day for a hike! Still snow on the trail but doable in trail runners. Beautiful views of crystal clear water and roaring waterfalls. Worth a stop for sure.

I did this hike last Sunday and though I wasn’t expecting it to be cover by snow it was still an awesome hike! The whole way was beautiful river views with mint blue water it was just stunning! I would definitely recommend this hike. One of the most beautiful waterfalls.

Great hike anytime. Both falls are beautiful.

Good hike for conditioning and to work on elevation gain. Went on a clear day so the view was decent at the top. Took the Trout Creek Trail out and back, did not bother with the road hiking. There are plenty of rhododendrons along the trail which I'm sure will look amazing when they bloom. Snow at the top is melting making it a little tricky in the decent.

Giant waterfalls where you can walk any distance from 0-20 miles. Good to view in the snow even, parking lot has been clear most of the time.

Snowshoe a short 2.5 miles into the Mountain View shelter for cozy overnight camping in a rustic(though recently constructed) cabin complete with 6 benches to sleep on and several hammock tie off points . Vault toilet. Wood stove. No firewood stocked at time of this post, but smaller snags in the area provided enough wood to burn for the night. 4 people stayed on Sunday night but it can be packed on Friday and Saturday. Beautiful night sky. Some peaks in sight ( N.sister, Mt. Wash, Three Fingered Jack) but Mountain View might be slightly overstated. Lots of snowshoe hare, coyote and bobcat prints. I snowshoed about 5 miles past the Maxwell Butte warming shelter on the way out, plenty of wood there, but no camping within 300’ allowed. All the waypoint maps were easily found along the route and clearly showed the trail ahead. Family friendly

With the dry winter Oregon is having I decided to venture over the pass to do this hike. It was well worth it, despite how short it is. The color of the water is magnificent this time of year and the lack of the crowds made it even better. There was even a light dusting of snow. I would not recommend attempting this hike in the winter without proper safety equipment in your car, the winter is not typical. The trail will always be fine, the roads may vary.

Great trail, great workout!! Snow free.

Snow on the trail right now it was a little sketching nearing the peak. The views were beautiful all the way up saving the best for last. Definitely worth it if you got a couple hours or 3 to spare.

Tough hike due to the steep elevation gain, but you get a great workout and the view from the top is beautiful.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_FoRWNf0J9I

Very good training hike! All uphill.

I started out at RR trailhead, the hike up was pretty much all uphill. I only encountered snow towards the top portion of the hike, but the view from the top was well worth it!

Definitely worth the hike. The hike is pretty easy and the waterfalls are incredible. Sahalie Falls is one of my all time favorites. The trail is heavily trafficked because of all the people passing by on the highway. Would definitely recommend it to anyone
