Highly accessible trail great for families with young children. In good condition today but there is a LOT of poison oak right now.

This is a must!! Can climb on west side falls too!

It’s fine, but like many have said the exposure to the highway kind of waters down the experience if you’re looking to get away. Edit - this is not a moderate trail - if you can walk 8 miles with some minor elevation, this won’t be challenging for you.

Really nice trail, not too many downed trees, but plenty of ticks to start the season

I love this trail. It is best early in the year before the mosquitos come out or late in the season. You can mountain bike it anytime & not have to worry about the mosquitos. Great trail for kids who can watch the creek get smaller & smaller until it disappears and look for the bubbles in the water where the springs come up. I do this trail multiple times a year. Silent creek is also amazing to kayak up from diamond lake. You can kayak up almost to the bridge. As of Memorial Day there were some logs to climb over and a few snow fields but mostly clear

Great trail to hike or bike. As of Memorial Day weekend there are done spots of deep snow and quite a few trees to climb over but still fantastic

Great trail! Difficulty mostly for length. Although there was a bit of a hill on the first half it was rewarded with a great view. There is a llittle exposure and slippery areas throughout but nothing difficult and all the exposure was accompanied by a wide trail. Not a lot of brush hanging in the trail so no ticks on this segment which was a big plus! I did this hike the end of last month. Stopped at the Susan creek bridge and had a quick lunch and checked out Susan Creek Falls on the other side of the road. I actually liked the second half of the hike heading towards Mott more than the first half. But both had wonderful views, great trail conditions, and neat little waterfalls throughout. Defiantly suggest this segment to anyone who wants to know what this trail is about, and it was a great introduction to this trail system for myself as well.

Nice hike, but not my favorite. No major issues with the trail just very exposed to the road and sun the entire hike due to walking through the burn scar. Surface of the trail is very rocky, but there is a nice little uphill section on the Masters side of the trail that makes the hike a bit more fun, and several beautiful little and big waterfalls on both side of the river.

Fun little trail and worth the hike but some possible issues for unprepared hikers. Overall the trail surface, grade, and width made for a very nice and easy hike. Unlike Calf it was fairly covered, but still offered some great views of the Umpqua below. There were a couple easy to bypass trees over the trail. Two areas on the trail had washed out. One next to a fair amount of exposure which just took being attentive to your footing and the other was quit a wide land slide of mud and sticks over the trail which to some work to get around. There are ticks on the brush (like most areas on this trail) so come prepared. Probably my third favorite section of the trail system on this side of the river.

Road is decent. Early spring season may have some downed trees. Easy hike, great views.

Not a long hike. Trail had a few downed trees but was otherwise clear and pleasant. The falls are worth the effort.

No fee. Medium hike. Not friendly to those with disabilities, but what-a-view!

Yakso, Clover, and Hemlock Falls are all open and accessible. There is currently only one way you can get to Lake in the Woods Campground (where all three trailheads are located), and that is through Peel, and Little River Road coming from Glide. The route coming from the west, NF-4714, is still blocked by trees about 13 miles away from the campground. As of 5/15 the falls are really flowing and the mosquitoes are everywhere - bring bug spray!

The road leading to the lakes is in good condition. The hike (only walked to the first lake) was easy, some patches of snow and a bit of mud, but otherwise a pleasant walk. We did it with a 2 year old and she had zero problems. The lake itself is clear and the surroundings are very pretty, again some patches of snow on the south side.

Trailhead was easy to find. Very well marked and maintained. This is a perfect trail for hiking with kids (6 and 8). Mostly flat until the last little bit where there is some elevation gain. (All downhill on the way back!) We clocked it at more like 3.2 miles round trip so beware of that. Trail was a little muddy in places but very doable. One small bridge was broken but there was a walk around and it looks like they are in the process of fixing it. Overall perfect experience!

This is a fairly easy trail it does have some small hills. The walk along the trail is very pretty. Once you get to the end the waterfalls is real gem.

4/26/20: beautiful hike with perfect weather. The waterfall was amazing!

4/25/20: This was an absolutely beautiful hike! There were some pretty slippery parts, but it wasn’t hard to maneuver. I went down to the waterfall and it was so worth it, so I recommend that if you’re able to get down there. The whole hike was so peaceful!

This is one of my favorite short hikes with preteens and teens. I have been a scout leader for several age groups and they all have enjoyed this area immensely for camping, hiking/exploring, swimming, fishing, and some slightly challenging caving! The hike is easy in my opinion. The drive from the pavement to the trailhead can range from terrible to good depending on the time of year and maintenance schedule. The caves are difficult to find and navigate until you have had someone show you where to access them. Great for a family day hike or easy overnighter.

Lots of downed trees from the fire. Some parts of the trail were obstacles presented by nature.
