awesome trail. my wife and I hiked this trail with a friend in July, it was 100+ degrees but the streams we're cool and refreshing. We did it in 4 days and 4 nights. thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The trail is long but not difficult, very easy.

Very nice early season hike early May. Only went in 9 miles from Graves Creek to just past Bunker Creek. Bunker Creek best campsite we came across. Poison oak got us despite our vigilance (foraging for camp wood is what did it). Lots of wildflowers. Trail has a nice steady elevation. Will be doing the loop next time.

I've hiked this a few times and its a great one!

Did this trail today around 5-6pm. Perfect time!! The lighting was beautiful. The whole trail from start to finish was gorgeous!! My dog loved it too, and drinking the fresh creek water! Awesome that this trail is about 5 minutes from my house!(:

Beautiful, easy and my German Shepherd loved the water! We went 5/6/18.

Nice easy hike. Beautiful scenery. Path a little confusing at times

Straight uphill. Nice views

New favorite hike near Grants Pass. Easy to find, lots of views. A must do :)

Beautiful. Rocky paths with random waterfalls crossing the trail. Shaded the entire way. The falls are more of a drop in the river and less fall but a nice spot to have a snack and sit down. Hike is between easy and moderate. If your kids are hikers and know how to be safe, this trail is fine but if they’re they type of kids that don’t understand potential dangers, I would say skip this trail. There are a couple of drop offs but enough room to be safe as long as you’re paying attention. I wasn’t scared at all but I could see where some people could be.

Worth it.

on Shan Creek Trail

There were no trail head marker, a mining claim sign is all that shows the start of the trail. trail is well defined for the first quarter mile. once you cross the tree log bridge, you are almost on your own. the trail seems to disappear and is overgrown with poison oak and the ticks were active.. down to the river was very scenic, we wish the trail had been cleared so it could be followed.

Awesome trail, definitely beautiful in the spring and the fall. It may get too hot in the summer to do this trail. You cannot take a stroller on the trail. It does get sleep through one part. I took my five-year-old and two-year-old and they both did the hike. It was beautiful. Beautiful views , beautiful oak grove, A great hike!

Smooth, fresh and vibrant. Great trail.

Great hike! We went towards the very begining of April. It was really muddy, but beautiful. It's an easy, peaceful trail with nice views of the creek, several benches, information plaques, and charming bridges.

This is nice, but not what I was expecting. You hike to a rapid in the river, not “falls”. Lots of rocks with no trail at times. Still better than being indoors. Hiked this in December.

Passed the trailhead and almost made it to the top of the mountain before turning back and following directions left by others. Once we found the trailhead, it didn’t take long to lose the trail. Made it to the fallen log that crosses the river before turning around and heading back. We’re hoping to come back near the end of summer and maybe some foot traffic will have made the trail more visible by then.

What we did see was extremely beautiful though and can’t wait to hike it in its entirety one day!

Overall this was an awesome backpacking trip. 4 days was perfect. I took my two golden retrievers and wish I had booties for them. Miles of sharp rocks did a number on their pads. Luckily I ran into friends rafting along the trail, on the third night, and they were able to take one of my dogs for me. Also the ticks were awful, especially the first two days. I did a chewable tick prevention and it obviously didn’t work. The weather was perfect low just under 40 and highs about 70. I cannot imagine hiking this trail in the summer, it would be absolutely miserable. There’s a lot of sun exposure especially on the first half of the trail. I’m pretty sure the map is in River miles and the trail is somewhere between 45 to 50 miles, depending on who you talk to. I may do the trail again soon with the GPS just for my own satisfaction.

Nice little walk along the river...but I would NOT recommend going out of your way to see.

Nice stroll through the woods along the creek! looks like a popular swimming hole on hot days!

I'm here in mid March...beautiful!

Beautiful easy hike with lush rivers and waterfalls. Takes approx. 35 minutes to make the loop. Some trails turn into streams and back to trails. Can be a little confusing to stick on the trail but it doesn't matter that much, it's not a large area to get lost in. Good for parents and kids.

Great short hike follow the map it is easy to go off trail but the trail is easy and very peaceful. We did this with our 1 and 5 year old and had no problems our favorite hike so far.

This trail was gorgeous! the views of the river were great and we even saw a river otter!

however, from the trail head to the falls and back was 4.9 miles and not kid friendly.

great hike with awesome views! Just lots of rocks and steep drop offs..leave the kids behind for this one!

I only went as far as Whiskey Creek cabin, well after a short detour that passed the cabin. It was a great day for the hike. I pretty much had the trial to myself. The only problem that I had was trying to cross some of the waterfalls because of the recent weather. I am a nervous nelly and that is why I had a problem. However, if I could do it, then anyone could. :-) I wil totally do this hike again.

Very easy trail though it’s easy to go down deer trails when hiking it as it’s not always clearly marked. Decent little water fall during hike, muddy right now.

Did this last year and was not disappointed. Best long trail I’ve done in quite a long time.

LOVED this trail! My husband and I completed it in a grueling two-day trek. The eastern portion is clearly signed at every landmark with mile markers, but the western part is hardly signed at all (but the trail is still easy to find). The views are breathtaking and it made for a wonderful trip.

Amazing hike today. Rained making it a little slick in spots but still beautiful. Recommend this hike.

Loved this trail! After you cross a giant fallen tree the trail continues to the right, but it’s not easily seen. We lost the trail at that point, but picked it up again soon after. Pretty easy hike, but there are spots the trail is on the side of a steep hill, so wouldn’t recommend for small children. Great if you are wanting to bring a dog because there is not much traffic on this trail.

very easy with kids
