Plan to spend the entire day. My favorite waterfall trail so far. I feel like the map can be a little confusing. The color maps at each waterfall are easier to understand. If you can't do the entire thing, do the upper falls! So worth it. The Fitbit said we did 10 miles when we were done. I don't think it tracks the in and outs to each waterfall spot. Parking is paid, card only.

We backpacked part of the trail to Devil's Cauldron in a day. It was a beautiful hike with great lookouts over the coast along the way. The trail was definitely overgrown in some sections but I hiked the whole thing in my tevas and was fine. I just recommend avoiding shorts. The trail was easy to follow despite a few downed trees. We stealth camped at Devil"s Cauldron and set up our hammocks a little ways up from the viewpoint. We had no problems with bugs although a critter did manage to eat through the ziplock bags our food stash was in. We decided to call it quits at Devil's Cauldron in the morning because we weren't interested in hiking on the shoulder of highway 101 for a mile and a half. All in all it was a great experience and would definitely recommend.

Absolutely incredible trail. Got up at 5am with the girlfriend, made our trip from Eugene shortly after and started hiking from the South falls. Great hike, very well maintained, not ruff on the feet. Said we did 64 stories at 9.1 miles. Amazing views, with multiple spots to sit an snack. We wanted to come here 3 weeks ago but the directions on this app led us to the opal creek trail instead, which was way far away from this hike, still don’t understand how the directions are so off. The address here is 20024 silver falls hwy se. sublimity Oregon 97385. Follow the road and the signs to the North or South falls parking sites. Otherwise you’ll end up like us a long ways off the 1st time hiking the wrong trails.

Hiked 7/14 (Saturday) and it was very busy at the South Falls where we parked but plenty of parking and room to spread out. First part of hike was awesome, traffic thinned the farther in we got. Picking up a map at TH was helpful. We would cut out Rim Trail if we did it again because it follows the road (but the trees are gorgeous). North Fall is worth seeing, don't take the cut and miss it. Plenty of places to pull over and rest, even behind the falls. We had a delicious lunch and local drafts after at the South Falls Cafe. It was awesome: clean restroom, refillable water station (around side), and a great patio to sit, enjoy, relax.

nice trail.

Hike is about 8.7 miles if you explore the entire loop. Truly a beautiful hike. more easy than moderate, although a few spots have quite a few steps and some points of rapid elevation. Started at the south entrance as suggested and traffic was light once we got going on the trail. Definitely worth it.

Great hike, the highlight of a visit to Crater Lake in my opinion. Be prepared to go both down and up the Cleetwood Cove trail and yes, you'll need to reserve a spot on the Wizard Island shuttle to do this. There is a great spot just beyond the dock at Cleetwood Cove to jump into the cold lake water if you are so inclined. Once on Wizard Island, the hike took us 45 minutes up and 35 minutes down, so we enjoyed a lunch on top and took in the incredible views and amazingly blue water. Once down, we also did part of the Fumarole Bay trail, but we were running out of time and that trail is difficult to traverse due to the lava rock and it doesn't really take you to a good swimming location. Instead, we got in at the dock and swam very briefly. We also saw a fellow passenger catch an 18-inch rainbow trout, so bring along your fishing pole and artificial lure and see what you can catch. All told, between all three trails, we hiked about 6 miles with about 1,500 feet of vertical, so it's a full day adventure.

Great hike with spectacular view at the end. Just a little too popular for my tastes though, but that's probably what I get for hiking it on a Saturday of a holiday weekend.

Done this hike a couple of times; 8-28-16 and 10-6-17, I love it!

By far my favorite waterfall in OR! Breath taking and plan on coming back to see it again!

Indian Sands is amazing. Really makes you think about how all that sand got up so high. We could feel Indian presence.
One of our favorite places to go.

Surprising trail with a nice reward at the end. Trail is mostly flat with a slight incline at the falls. We hiked between 2-3PM when the sun is on the falls and makes better pictures. The wildflowers were awesome along with hundreds of butterflies. Don't miss this one at Crater Lake NP.

Short, flat stroll while viewing the pinnacles.

beautiful at the end. there are multiple starting points. you can park at top in ATV area and take road down walking or drive down closer and park along the road. there us small space at end by actual trailhead. most of hike is along undeveloped gravel road.

Extremely well maintained trail. Beautiful grounds.

Very rewarding hike. Couldn't quite tell if I was close to the top then all of a sudden you turn a corner and see the fire lookout not far off.

It's a great waterfall all right, and you can swim in the big pool below it, but it really is challenging to get to. The road (couple miles) off a pretty smooth gravel road is very rough to the trailhead, which is close to the end of the road and a gate that blocks it. Had no trouble in my Subaru Forester, but went slowly and took the potholes carefully. Parked by the white gate at the end. The trail starts about 50 yards back from the gate and small parking area. The trail is clear enough but both rough and very steep. Ropes along it are helpful going down and back up. The trail along the river is very rocky. Go left upstream when you get down to the river. The deep bowl with the waterfall into it is very striking.
There are plenty of waterfalls in Oregon that are as beautiful and dramatic as Abiqua. For me, doing it once was an adventure, but probably too much trouble to repeat.

A really good trail to hike. Moderate is a fair assessment, especially if you pick it up in the first parking lot where the picnic area is.

Definitely start this hike early!! It gets incredibly busy towards late-morning/mid-day. Also recommend starting at the North end trail-head. You won’t hit much traffic until you reach the last 3-4 miles of the trail. You can also hike down to a few of the waterfalls for a swim! Trail is lined with strawberries/blackberries/raspberries most of the way, so the smell is amazing in the summer! Do be prepared for a nice little hike up a decent amount of stairs.

Peaceful easy trail. Great birding.

Moderate to strenuous hike depending on your fitness level. Elevation gain is manageable with breaks and the payoff is the views. We went to the second viewpoint to complete the entire hike. The first viewpoint is spectacular. We spotted a herd of elk in the distance, a large vulture flying over, and a garter snake crossing the trail. Fox gloves were still blooming beautifully. Best hike we’ve done in Oregon so far. Definitely prepare for sun exposure as a large part of this you are out in the open.

This doesn’t need another review but I had such a good time I simply must. Every second of this trail is breathtaking. Don’t be fooled by the short distance, this hike is not easy, but it’s a killer work out if you move at a good pace. I think this was a fluke incident but a few falling rocks came down from the peak as I descended and could have ended badly for me if I wasn’t paying attention, make sure to be cautious of your steps and surroundings as the trail is narrow. If you only have time for one hike here, do this hike! You won’t regret it.

Good for all ages! The views were awesome! The other hikers were friendly and that made the day that much better!

Great walk along the cliff’s today.

Get there early. We started at the North end at 9am and it was not crowded. By the time we hit the South end about 11am, it was packed. We continued on to do the loop. Beautiful hike and well worth, you can walk behind most of the falls. When it gets crowded, it is hard for everyone to fit behind the falls though.
One after another, we could not stop taking pictures through the Old growth forests. It is a moderate hike, with switchbacks.

Great trail and only place you can swim in the park (unless you take the shuttle to Wizard Island).
Challenging hike with lots of switchbacks, but well
Worth it. You can see the clear blue water and jump off a 35ft cliff! Lots of people hanging around the water, temps were 55 degrees! The cliff jump is well worth the cold for a few minutes. But, I did not hang around to swim.
If you take the shuttle around Crater Lake, you will
Have to do this hike.
