This is not an easy (overnight) hike, seemed like half of it was through dry (and generally rocky) riverbed. I read other reviews, and by God, it SEEMED like 9 miles, but my map showed 5 1/2 to 6. Jeff Park is just incredible (stayed Scout lake). Would like to do the easier climb from the East, but Forest Service said the road is impassable for most cars.

My absolute, hands down, FAVORITE hike I’ve ever been on. It is so incredibly beautiful at the top. My friend and I packed some snacks and found a nice nook at the top to sit in and took in the views for about 45 minutes. Go early so you don’t have to share the space because there’s not much room up there. It’s more on the moderate side, it’s not quite as hard as some of the reviews make it seem, it does have some rocks, just wear your hiking boots and be careful!

we took the whole family, all five kids and what a beautiful hike!

Such a beautiful hike. I live close by, so I did it in a few sections first. Took my sisters with me once. Then took my husband and we did the full loop last Sunday. He had not been there before. He loved it too! Lots of people later in the day, but most are very friendly.

This hike was A LOT harder than I had initially planned and it is a lot longer than the trail signs lead on. I wore my FitBit while hiking and it tracked upwards of 19 miles by the time we got back to our car.
This hike was absolutely gorgeous, however. I wore plenty of layers. My recommendation is to pack layers, food, but pack light. You’re gonna hate your backpack by the end of it, haha.

This trail is all it promises to be. The only concern is that it is heavy with Poison Oak, so come prepared with full coverage and open eyes

Great place to hike and take a picnic lunch. Lovely place to kayak as well, especially on a week day. We try to make a day of it because of the parking fee.

Incredible views!

Tricky to find the point, but really cool once you get there. The scramble up to the actual point is a little sketchy, but not too difficult. To get to the point you have to go down an unmarked foot path. We almost missed it and continued on to deadwood. Close one!

A group of us ages 4-64 went up middle of August. For moderately active people it’s an easy out and back trail with a beautiful lake as a destination point! Jumped in to cool off and swim and went back down. All within 2.5 hours!

Hike for good exercise and the views of the rock ledge at end of mountain are amazing! Once you get to the “peak” keep going because the views aren’t there they are past the peak on a trail that takes you to the over look. Great exercise for moderate hikers and spectacular views!

Great hike, could easily see MSH, Rainer, Adams, Hood and Jefferson on this bluebird day.

A day hike that is not to be missed! The loop is more likely a 3-mile trek, but every step is worth it. The loop takes you around 3 very accessible and spectacular falls. You’ll get to see each from multiple angles and you can get surprisingly close to the edges, so caution is needed. For groups with little ones, less mobility or less time, stay on the near side and go south (go left downhill from the parking lot) and you will see all 3 falls in a half mile stretch. Well worth the short detour off of highway 20.

a decent hike to the fall, and is near susan creek falls which is convenient

Trail is overgrown in some areas making it pretty impossible to get through.

We hiked in from the Beaver Swamp trailhead, you drive past the Fish Lake trailhead about 5 miles and the hike is just under 4 miles round trip to get to the lake.

The traffic/city noises are a definite drawback but the lush greenery and good condition trails make up for it with it's proximity to the city. There are also beautiful garden areas and an all-ability playground. Definitely easy enough to stroll causally for children or adults and saw multiple people with leashed pups in tow. Very nice for a city park and not as overwhelmed by city noise as tualatin nature park.

Beautiful views throughout with presence of great amount of shade.

This trail is an instant favorite. It is so remote. Feels like you are driving on backroads forever to get there, but the gravel road is good. Stunning in fall. Not a soul on the trail.

I went during early spring in the morning shortly after sunrise. Everything was mildly wet and as the sun rose higher and started to warm the air I could see a misty fog coming from all plant life. I had never seen anything like this and found it to be quite mystical because the trail itself leads you into what feels like a fantasy Forrest. Along the way are towering sequoia, ferns and trees covered in long strands of lichen. All along the path is little river in which you follow to the end of the trail to a double tiered waterfall. It’s a fairly simple hike with a nice incline at the end. During spring I recommend water proof shoes as the water from the river bellows over the path and can get quite muddy. During summer the canopy of trees keeps it cool and the temperature is quite tolerable. During the fall it takes a new shape of the color changing leaves and I have yet to experience it during the winter. It is a beautiful drive to get there and promise you won’t be disappointed!

loved loved loved this very short but beautiful hike. fall is popping right now in color

Took the dog for a morning hike.
He loved it.
Quiet first thing in the morning. People were just starting to head up as we were leaving.

we did the 15 Mile out and back hike and considered it very easy but well worth the trip.

Good hike for a clear day- you can see the Coffin Mountain lookout from the top of Bacehlor Mountain.
