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!

Simple and well marked trail thru old growth. awesome destination at house rock. only one creek area that is potentially difficult to traverse depending on the water flow

Trail was not groomed very well. Not many views until you get to the very top. Even the top wasn’t the best view. Trees blocked part of it.

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.

Nice trail but can't do it all this time of year (March) without waterproof boots (or a willingness to finish the hike with wet feet). About 1.2 miles in there is a 20 foot wide creek flowing into the Santiam that cannot be crossed without getting into the water. During the summer months this is likely a small stream that is easily crossed but not this time of year. You will also find a small stream earlier in the hike. We were able to find a log just a bit upstream to cross this one or our hike would have ended there. We are looking forward to finishing this one come summer.

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.

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

I really enjoyed the car ride there but I wish the hike was longer. The waterfalls were worth it if your there for an easy hike.

Family-friendly hike. Very icy at the viewpoint for Sahalie Falls, otherwise slushy/snowy along the trail. Lots of visitors.

I went on this trail when there was still snow on the ground. It was gorgeous but a little difficult just because of the snow. It would be a super easy hike in the summer months.

Loved this hike! We decided to take it up a notch and hike down into the river and river walked down streams bit. The water is beautiful blue and fast and SUPER cold!!

I saw a picture that someone had posted on Instagram and knew I had to check this place out. I came out yo Oregon to visit family and my mom, boyfriend, and I stopped by on our way home from Portland. This definitely is a super easy hike but the views, to die for!

One of my favorite trails! Stunning falls, the air smells so sweet here, and we loved just sitting by quieter spots on the river. Really gorgeous the whole way!

Trail was in generally good condition, though in places it was overgrown. The "trail" to Browder Ridge Summit is absolutely worth the climb. From there there is a 360 degree view of the sisters, Jefferson and even the coastal range. There were clouds and melting snow made the trail wet and soggy. Still I highly recommend this hike.

Gorgeous hike. This time of year it was a bit muddy and snow covered in some areas with some small trees down. All in all well worth the views and the waterfall by House rock is spectacular.

Took the kids on this hike last summer. Our 5 and 7 year olds, me and the husband spent the day hiking to Square Lake and playing in the water. It was warm and quiet, we only saw a few people on the PCT part, and maybe 2 others once we got to the lake. One of the best family hikes we’ve done since moving to Sisters last year.

Fun hike with my son

A beautiful, short walk down and uphill. The trail is groomed, wide, and well marked. We hiked this in mid September 2017 and met a few mountail bikers and hikers on the trail but not many.

Beautiful hike . Water is so Blue. The falls Amazing . Trails are good . Love this hike
