My wife and our 5 kids, ages 16-2 1/2 to Yakso Falls in August 2018. As others have said, it is a long drive, but I think it was worth it as there is a campground with a day use area and another set of falls right next door. The hike was easy for everyone including our 2 year old daughter. The falls were not gushing, but still had plenty of water coming down and the pool at the bottom was crystal clear. Two of us jumped in and swam in the pool, which was freezing cold! Overall, a very nice hike with a beautiful waterfall at the end. 4 Stars only because the drive up the gravel road is on the long side.

Great family hike. If you can climb over some rocks and loose gravel you can go straight to the base of the waterfall.

Good hike. The .6 is pretty much straight up from the parking lot but you can get right under the falls if you want to! Cool place to see! Follow all of our adventures on Instagram @themicrotourists

It's fun to find the 3rd tallest waterfall and then see the 2nd on hwy 58 (Salt Creek falls). Watson Falls is a short and relatively easy hike with a great end result.

The whole trail and especially the waterfall are magical! Definitely worth the climb!!

Love this hike. Short enough you can enjoy other hikes in the area.

Absolutely amazing!

took my 2 year old and we made it... :) does get sketchy past the bridge but good hike. :) beautiful waterfall. he loved it.

One of my favorite hikes, especially in the Fall.

Good family hike, fairly easy and not a ton of elevation gain. Easy for adults and very do able for kids

Hike is appropriately listed as moderate, but it seems easy because the scenery is so beautiful it keeps your attention. Felt as if we were walking through a fairy tale book.

Peaceful easy hike. Great growth and shade at the start and new growth after last years fire towards the falls. Easy access and soft trail.

Visited this waterfall today (along with Toketee, Whitehorse, and Clearwater.) This was my 3rd visit to this waterfall in less than a year (September and October of 2017.) Mist feels great on a warm summer day. Beautiful views along the trail.

We wanted a nice easy hike for my fiancé, our dog and I, and we got it! The trail was very clean and open, and although we didn't quite make it to Fern Falls, Deadline Falls was quite beautiful! The thing that stopped us was the poison oak on the trails since we were worried about our dog trying to get into it. Other than that, we can't wait to come back, maybe this time minus the dog.

This is our most frequented hiking spot, it's beautiful from beginning to end.

I just hiked it this week and there is a lot of snow for the last 2 miles. It can be tricky to find the trail, but I was able to manage thanks to a previous hiker's tracks. The view at the top is INCREDIBLE, I had the whole trail to myself. One note on the road to the trailhead: it's heavily eroded and I would not recommend low to the ground cars to attempt it. When you drive it you'll know what I mean ;)

We chose to “hike” this trail to get some miles in for the day and regretted it half way in. The lake views are beautiful, but half the trail takes you away from it through a mosquito infested forest. When you come back around towards the lake you’re basically walking through people’s campsites and it feels a little odd.

Loved this hike! Was so easy and we ended up jumping in the water by the falls!

really beautiful waterfall

It was such a beautiful trail that runs through a lush forest. Basically had the whole trail to myself except for one other person. The falls are beautiful, too!!

Beautiful falls and fairly straightforward hike to get to them. Some elevation and climbing, and a few narrow parts where we couldn't go 2 abreast. Our 5 year olds did great with it; held their hands for much of the hike to ensure safety. highly recommend!

Awesome hike. Easy and dog friendly. It was a little crowded but I’m sure that had a lot to do with the fact that it is Memorial Day. There are a couple of mildly steep hills towards the end but overall a great and relaxing hike.

awesome trail. easy hike with kids and dogs. very pretty waterfall.

Beautiful short hike. The water running along side the trail was worth it alone, but the falls were amazing! Great short stop off the road.

Beautiful, albeit a little buggy.

Hiked this tons. Always a favorite. Last time I came it was closed. It must be reopened now. I was shown a cave off this trail a few summers ago, don’t know if I could find it again. Love the bridge at the entrance. Nothing beats North Umpqua hiking!

After you reach the bridge continue on for a short distance and up a pile of rocks/small boulders to a beautiful view right at the base of the falls. It was so icy (beg of Apr) be very careful!!!

The moss! Amazing power from that water falling. Smooth walk, not too much traffic, a little snow (March) but not cold. Can lower to base with ropes. Great for kids and dogs.

Great hike! we went Wednesday 3/28/18 & it was absolutely beautiful!
