I hiked this short and a bit steep trail last year in the fall. The Waterfall was well worth it. We crossed the river so we could walk behind the waterfall be careful doing this as its muddy n slick. We had the place to ourselves and spent around a few hours enjoying the place. Plus I love taking pictures. I definitely recommend this short hike it won't disappoint you.

Super nice waterfall, but only for people who are good on foot and for a bit of climbing are not too bad. Muddy and very slippery, with sometimes large precipices on narrow paths.

I would recommend this trail for only those with knees in good working order. The scenery is gorgeous, and the waterfall is totally worth it!

I live near this area and I wish those who use it would respect others and nature. I don’t go here during summer because of the trash and the people who leave it behind.

Pretty short hike but gorgeous falls at the end. Very dusty. Not many bugs but we had bug spray. Great for dogs!

I've taken this trail a few times, always enjoy it. I did notice some people have carved out two other extremely steep trails. Make sure you use the proper one at the far narrow end of the parking lot. The other "new one" turned my legs to jello due to being so steep. I'd encourage swim gear and time to relax here during the summer. More people than previous years, but everyone is nice. I'd strongly recommend bringing a small trash bag and help haul out some litter. Not sure who dumped so much over the edge, very sad. We take out a bag or more every visit.

I was so sad to see all the trash, I took a trash bag to try to pick up, but there is so much trash and food. There is also human feces in the middle of a side trail at the waterfall. Other then that... the trail is short and the view is amazing! I got to play with the shutter speed on my camera and had a lot of fun!!

Took 4 kids from 20 months/4 years/ 7 year/ 10 years old and only the baby had to be helped out on the trail. You have to be cautious in a few areas as if you slip you’ll have a nice tumble down to the river. Short trail, lots of garbage from terrible people but overall very very beautiful.

The directions on the app take you to the right parking area. Go left and you will see the post with red markings at the edge of the lot. Fast hike but can be tricky. The waterfall is beautiful, definitely hike behind it if you can. There is LOTS of trash (I saw plastic food packaging, a pair of underwear, a pair of shorts, glass etc). It took me less than 10 minutes to hike back to the lot from the falls (mostly uphill), but I do hike fast.

Start this trail along the road!!! WHITE marker on the tree and post with RED markings on it to start the trail. I added a picture with start also! Totally recommend this trail for families, individuals with pups, anyone who can’t walk to far but wants to get outside for a beautiful view! Trail maintained well. Can get slippery when wet. I came during a light rain shower and rocks can get slippery. Walk slowly and you’ll be okay. I’m here June 7, 2019 and the waterfall had lots of water coming off it. Enjoy your hike/walk!

very beautiful waterfall

The rocks help with the muddy spots! Short Hike to the Falls, but watch your step! lots of up and downs. I would reccomend going behind the waterfall, so you can feel the spray! Also, if you go above the waterfall, wear pants. There is quite a bit a stinging Nettle. Hope this review helps all y'all! :)

really muddy and slippery, but worth it at the end.

Kid and Puppers friendly. Easy hike that you could easily do in under an hour. Beautiful falls at the end that you can hike to the top of or behind.

Hike is short but the waterfall is gorgeous!!

Nice pit stop on our way from Portland to Astoria. Only a few miles from the main road. The trail really isn’t marked so I don’t think it’s maintained publicly. Look for the second pull off to the left when you’re heading west. The trial entrance is on the east side or the lot with a white panel on a tree. No other signage to be found. Was a little wet and muddy in some areas. Empty though, only saw one other couple. Was cool to see this waterfall so tucked away.
