Definitely a stroll and not a hike. The lake is beautiful!

I feel like not many people stop here to explore. It was a beautiful area, 2 beaches to choose from and there's even a pretty large cave to climb down into. Found this area by accident but I ended up exploring the area for several hours. The trail down is an old washed out dirt road so it's not too bad of a walk. Was incredibly windy while I was out there but other than that nothing too crazy.

Beautiful trail. Along the water it was busy but easy to spread out. Honestly getting in the water felt great with the warm weather. Cold but worth it. If you are concerned about social distancing this may not be the trail for you. Super packed with most people not bothering with masks. As far as the drive up goes- drove a Honda Fit at a normal speed and had zero issues. The dust being kicked up at some points made it difficult to see but I wouldn’t let that deter you from going. Reading other reviews I was concerned that we needed an suv but it was fine. We’ve taken our fit up even worse gravel roads and so the conditions of this road were of little concern. NW Forest Pass works here, otherwise $5 fee.

Hiking

Beautiful and quite challenging hike with spectacular waterfalls. Go early if possible, less people. Requires scaling up and down steep hillsides (there is rope in most areas) and walking through a lot of brushy areas. I would recommend wearing legit hiking boots for this (not open-toed hiking sandals). FYI: Do not attempt to cross the log! There were two logs, now there is one and there is a reason for that. The logs are very obviously rotting and have been for quite some time. See previous review further below stating recently one of the logs falling under someone. There is a trail to the right to walk around to get to the cave and the top of the upper falls. I came across multiple people still attempting to cross the remaining log, not worth a potential fall of 100 feet below.

Overall - Good trail. The North and the South Falls were the best. If you don’t have time to do the entire trail then just do the North Falls or the South Falls. Other Falls were ehhh..

lots of ppl but it’s not bad if u go earlier in the morning. 10/10 natural rock slide u gotta do the rock slide!!! also don’t miss the waterfall there’s a turn off between 1.5 and 2 miles at a lil no camping sign and if u go down there that’s where you’ll find the waterfall that’s actually in the picture of this hike it’s not at the end of the trail!

Amazing trail! Every mile there was something new about the landscapes. From gravel bare cliffs, to huge sugar pine trees, to lush green shrubbery, to thorny blackberry bushes (with delicious blackberries!), to beautiful meadows. This trail had it all. Lots of animals: otters, bears, minks, deer, birds, and more. Sometimes there would be no way to get to the river for a while so you have to watch out for all the creeks along the way to fill up water. Having the trail log of all the stops is a must. I recommend the horseshoe bend campground. Lastly, Watch out for the mosquitoes! They are horrible and never ending.

Bring Gloves!!!! Also, one of the logs collapsed by the upper falls so you will need to take the path around the crossing. All in all this Hike is CHALLENGING!!! So much fun!!! Worth the effort!

My favorite spot in Oregon! The water is cold, clear and the prettiest shade of emerald. You can’t go wrong with any place you stop off to swim in the water. We went the full trail, some parts can be sketch on the cliff with rocks and debris but once you get that out way you’re golden. DRIVING THERE. Expect to drive 20mph Bumps and potholes are hidden everywhere It takes a good hour once you turn onto the road The dust is unmanageable and can cause the path to be unclear at times if their are cars o front of you. I drove an SUV yet smaller cars could pose a challenge (I did see some parked, but bless up that must have sucked for the suspension)

HikingBugsFeeGreat!

Great hike! The trail was very wide for the majority of the hike and towards the end gets narrow! Definitely kid friendly, did the trail with three kids under 5 just fine. Water areas were a little crowded but no problems of crowding on the trails. Beautiful places to stop throughout. Had to park pretty far away and the last few miles to the trail is gravel and bumpy. But totally worth it to make it to the trail. $5 day pass. May want to bring bug spray, especially if there towards the evening.

HikingRockyScramble

i don’t usually write reviews, but felt the need to share that the double log bridge is no longer there because one of the logs fell as i was WALKING ON IT. i’m begging you to PLEASE DO NOT try crossing the single log, it is very rotted and burnt. i made it across the log bridge to the falls and felt okay about it. it was pretty wobbly and i thought to myself that the logs looked pretty burnt/rotted but figured it was fine because other people cross this. on the way back i took maybe 5-6 steps out onto the bridge (one foot on each log), and then hear a super loud cracking noise and felt a rumble underneath my right leg. the log on the right completely dropped from underneath my footing and i had to quickly leap to the left log and was straddling it SIDEWAYS and had to pull myself back on top of it. as i was straddling the log, i felt it SHAKE as the other one crashed to the ground. i had barely grabbed onto the remaining log in time and my right leg was dangling off the side of it. i almost lost my life!!! this would’ve been a VERY high fall of about 80 feet. i would hope no one is bold enough to try crossing the single log, but PLEASE DO NOT try crossing anyway. i’m very disappointed to see in recent pictures that the big rocks i put in the way were moved so people can still attempt this. if this happens with the single log, you’re dead!!! the remaining log is very rotted toward where it’s resting against the cliff (the one that fell was like that too) and that is EXACTLY where it ended up snapping while i was on the other side crossing back. i want to stress that this isn’t a matter of just being careful on it, it fell out of nowhere and it’s bound to happen with the other log at any time. i am only about 110lbs and it caused it to snap. this log is very rotted and singed from a fire, you can even feel how brittle it is as you step on it. i only continued the first time because i thought “oh, well people always cross this” but this is a dumb way to go about it. i never thought i’d be the one to be in any of these crazy hiking accidents but it can truly happen to anyone, and it was a close one! as others mentioned, there is a path to the right over the big pipe that you can take to get to the falls instead of using the now single log. i love a good adventure but i certainly would’ve taken this originally if i knew the log was about to break. i didn’t read reviews prior, so we only found that trail after we thought we were stranded by the upper falls since one of the logs fell. i will be reporting this incident to the forest service and request that the single log is chopped down due to how dangerous this is. on a more positive note, i still rate this hike a 5 because it was so beautiful and a ton of fun aside from the near death experience. such an adventure!! i loved all the rope sections and the falls were so gorgeous. once you get to the fork, both falls are fairly close so i’d definitely recommend seeing both. might as well if you’re all the way out there! so much cool stuff to see along the way. i didn’t bring gloves for the ropes and my hands were a little sore, but it wasn’t too bad. have fun and BE SAFE out there, mother nature is no joke y’all.

I love this hike! Up and down the first ridge is tough. Once along the river it's beautiful. Make sure to visit both falls, you already hiked the hard part, dont cut yourself short!! Visit the top and bottom of both falls. I enjoyed swimming top and bottom of Memaloose as well as the bottom of Clackamas Falls.

WalkingBugsGreat!

Absolutely worth it! The road you turn on is called Nigeria Hts rd, there will be an old red water wheel and that marks the start of the drive. There are signs along the way that guide you to the trail. The road is totally easy and any car can make it. I went 14 the whole way. The trail itself is easy as pie to get down...because its downhill. The way back up sucks balls! Its hard AF. Straight uphill and not a good time. Break often. Beautiful View

Great trail with some great views! Can get a little crowded but most of the trail is wide enough that you can space out. Lots of different access points to the river if you don’t want to do the entire hike. We did the whole thing but stopped at some different spots along the way. The last bit of the drive up to the trailhead is unpaved and rocky. Make sure you have a car that can handle going up so you aren’t the one slowing down traffic! Please be careful jumping off the falls! I don’t recommend jumping out here because it’s so rocky and people get hurt all the time. Somebody had to go in an ambulance when we were there because they hit there head. Be safe and enjoy the hike!

Outstanding, even in the dry season. We did the loop counter-clockwise, saving South Falls as the best-for-last. Even with starting at 8:00am, the trail was incredibly crowded on a Friday.

This is by far one of my favorite hikes to do. The falls are all gorgeous and the trail is well kept and well marked. You will want to get there early to beat all the people but it’s well worth the early morning alarm. My favorite time to do this hike is in December when the water is it’s most powerful. Makes walking behind the waterfalls all the more magical.

Small but beautifully blue water. Doesn’t feel like a hike as much as it does a short walk. A number of people in the middle of afternoon on a Thursday. No one wearing masks. The real adventure is navigating the craters in the road on the way there! We wound up extending our hike to Timothy Lake, which we really enjoyed. Looking forward to returning and exploring the area more.

Just did this trail on Monday, the roads and paths are nicely paved. We took Fork Rd and paid a $5 fee to park. It’s a very dusty road up and you’ll definitely want AWD, don’t be that person going 20 mph the entire time over the bumps. The trail was a bit busy, but had enough space to maintain distancing. Instead of being 100 degrees as projected, it was comfortable low 90’s in the shade. The water was very cold but swimmable and we jumped off the falls 3 times. Didn’t make it all the way through the trail as we weren’t sure when it would end and were already 3 hours in. Overall, nice and safe hike, will do this again on a hot day.
