We recently had some rain and the trail wasn’t passable today. There is a stream that you need to cross but with the rain it was a impassable. We will come back in the summer and try it again.

Hiking in the pouring rain on top of sheets of mud and ice? Is there anything better in this life? I think not. Great trail, probably gets crowded but in the horrendous wonderful weather I had it to myself.

If you follow the directions here it's all logging road but really does help stretch out the muscles. I usually find other trails to wonder off on to complete a nice long sustained workout.

Absolutely stunning, the trail was amazing with amazing views. The offshoots were my favorite. There was a ton of snow on the west side of the trail which made it a lot more challenging, but overall it was a great hike!

I hiked this Trail on Sunday January 13th it is a great Trail with gradual climbs I believe the mileage is off a little bit my tracking said it was 10.7 miles from the trailhead to the lookout and back. I would definitely recommend it the views from on top 4 spectacular of the red Buttes

Nice trail for an easy walk with two dogs. There are only a couple narrow spots- otherwise the trail is mostly flat, wide, and dry. Good vantage points to see/access the river.

It was very steep. To get to the top you literally go straight up. Be careful when muddy. It was a bit difficult to find the trail. There are many different trails! Use the map!! Worth it getting to the top! Wonderful very.

Excellent loop, hard to beat for something so close to the city center. Trail was a bit icy so be sure to bring some spikes during winter months. A few trails branch off of the east side of the loop, looking forward to exploring those on future visits.

A basic meandering trail mostly in within the wetlands. It does bring you onto the Springwater Corridor, which can get busy. The trail itself was easy to navigate.

This is a great hike. Enough easy work to be fun. We have done this hike in the rain and, honestly, with the overwhelming amount of moss on the trees, it was shocking. We take our dog who also loves it and doesn't have the opportunity to get into too much trouble. There is the rare bike. All riders have been wonderful with warnings of approach and sharing the path.

Went on a Cold Sunday morning hike. We took the Kopetski trail loop and came around the back side of jawbone flats. No worries you end up on the same trail you start on. We started our hike at 11 AM and got done at 2:15 PM. We only saw two other groups of hikers until we started to head back, then it was a bit more crowded, but no problem as it’s not nearly as bad as the summer time. Dress warm/layers as you are hiking in a canyon that gets very little sunlight and it’s cold until you warm up from hiking. We stopped for a small lunch at jawbone flats and had to layer back up before we got going again. Love this place. BRING CASH OR CHECK for parking. And if you can spare it, the town takes donations too, and once you see how pristine they help keep the town and trails you’ll want to donate. Great hike for all ages and skills but the Kopetski Loop is a little more rugged and step, would not recommend for little ones or people with old knees. Enjoy.

great family hike. can be muddy at times and slippery in some spots. still a great and beautiful hike.

Gorgeous views and easy enough for a beginner (like myself) at snowshoeing. Would head back for sure and would like to explore on x-country skis next time.

Lots of up and down which we like. Beautiful views of the river. Easy enough for our 4 year old but not boring.

Took a group of Boy Scouts to overnight at the lake . Built an igloo in the campground area. Very busy parking lot and trail during the day, only ones on the lake that night!

Wonderful wonderful hike. No snow to speak of on this trip. Views were spectacular. Ocean and Mountain View’s! ❤️

Beautiful park.

A perfect example of the beauty of Central Oregon.

One of the most beautiful hikes in Oregon. Jawbone Flats is an incredible site to see.

Mostly meant for biking, but still a great hike as long as you stay aware of your surroundings. I'd love to go back!

Beautiful forestry and an amazing waterfall.

A few decent sites to see, but not really worth the admission fee.

Extremely basic park with no outstanding features.

Nice and easy walk. Nice and clean trail with a few falls. It's cool to be able to go behind the last one and just listen.

Great for some easy to moderate wandering. Didn’t see any wildlife or people, a few little mushrooms and picked up some garbage on the unfit settlement loop. The viewpoint was clouded over when I went but it was still a nice little walk.

Nice and easy to get to. Pretty forest scenery with sounds of the "river" for much of the hike. I didn't see any this time of year, but it sounds like this trail may often be primarily used for mountain biking. As a hike, its closer to moderate difficulty. Note that the trail is actually much longer than shown here, and the red line representing the trail on the map here is very generalized. See the Forest Service page for more info.

The trials are easy walking. Nice for picture taking.

This hike is a gorgeous forest loop that offers varying scenery. It’s overshadowed by the Trail of Ten Falls, which is great because there’s a lot less people on it. It is horse accessible, and there’s plenty of horse poop to prove it, but it wasn’t a big deal for us. The uphill portions of this hike are painful, but then it’s downhill the whole way back. Now, if you’re a lover of mud like I am, enjoy the crap out of this. If you’re delicate and don’t like to get dirty, find something else to do besides this trail. It’s also very well marked, so getting lost would be difficult. We didn’t see any critters on the trail, but a sign at the trailhead said that bears and cougars have been spotted there before. Based on the density of the forest, I’m pretty sure they were there watching us amble through. Creek crossings were fine because of lovely bridges, and there’s plenty of water on the trail for dogs.
