2018 fire decimated the entire route here from the north Grants Pass, unpaved way. (from Galice the paved road is a nice drive). About a mile in, the forest fire wiped out a 1/4 mile section the trail, 4' trees fell over. Several creek crossings with no bridges. Un-burnt sections are very overgrown trail now, as its not been maintained in a couple years at least. Many eye charging gnats. The unmarked ATV (guessing miner) trail that criss crosses is well maintained tho, but mining claims filed all over the creekway.

Great Hike. Perfect temperature and enjoyed the wildflowers. The views were great. Make sure to find the trail head via 199 in Selma. We tried from Murphy first. Not so good. Will do this one again.

Great hike. Easiest access is 199 to Selma, left at Rays grocery then use GPS.

The trail was just a dirt/rocky road. No markers. Hard to get through a few spots with water.

Drove out to this site in April. In the middle of the burn scar. No real accessible tree line as far as the eye can see. Bridge was burned up and is hazardous to cross. Not really worth going back out till it's fixed.

Did this hike on a beautiful sunny day with my little dog. The water was a beautiful green, lots of wildflowers. Easy to find the trailhead, the trail did get a little confusing at times because there were multiple paths that branch off of it with little to no signage. Pretty rocky, and narrow at times. The little falls were awesome! I would definitely do this hike again

don't underestimate the short distance! this is a great hike, with elevation gain.

We hiked this one on April 18, 2019 a few days after some significant rainfall. Several parts of the trail were muddy, but, not excessively. Beautiful views of the Illinois River along the way and a variety of wildflowers starting to bloom. The "falls" are more of a rapids, at least with all the run-off. I also read on the signs near the trail head that Little Falls is a great place to watch the salmon run in October if you are in the area.

Pretty muddy trail but worth the hike. The falls were beautiful. the dogs loved it. Will go back in summer.

A little muddy but overall good trail. The falls are beautiful. I don’t think I would rate this hike as well if you don’t do the loop down to the river.

One of the best trails in Southern Oregon. It starts with steep switchbacks until you reach a false summit. I did this hike in February a few years back and was knee deep in snow when I reached the summit. Plan accordingly.

perfect family trail!! cannot wait to come back in the summer

Muddy unless its summer but if you wear boots it's a great hike. Little bit of incline on the hike, but well worth the views.

short and easy..quiet little taste of nature

First of all, Jeffrey Pine loop is only a little over a mile loop. 3.7 miles includes joining the Little Falls loop and walking it to the falls. Rocky, but very pretty. Beautiful wildflowers in the spring and nice colors in Fall. Would not advise this 3.7 mile stretch for small children. Parts of this trail are very narrow and require some careful planning. The actual 1 mile loop in the beginning is suitable for families with children.

It's well worth the trip. The road was not as bad as previously stated. I took my Subaru Legacy up and it made it just fine. I suggest taking hwy. 199 to Selma then a left after Rays market, follow the GPS from there. It is a climb but there are Amazing views the whole time! You can even see Mt. Mclaughlin at the top. A bit windy and lots of shattered glass up there too. We only seen two other hikers that day. So peaceful!

I hiked this Trail on October 7th after a summer filled with smoke that finally left the view was breathtaking. the hike up the hill was not easy it is very Steep in places. it took me 3 hours to get to the top because I had to stop numerous times to rest. one of the best hikes I have done to date.

Trail is closed due to recent Taylor creek fire. Trailhead unreachable. No word on when it will reopen.

I can’t rate the trail-just the navigation to the trailhead, I linked to maps from all trails & ended up on a remote poorly maintained road. I was in an SUV & rode through deep ruts & over dead tree limbs but after 3 mi on this road I encountered a deep washout that I knew was impassable so had to reverse out until I was able to turn around. So, if you want to try this trail, see if there is a safer way in. I gave up & found an easy trail down the road a few miles.. maybe this is why there were no current reviews?

Just like everyone has said it’s definitely a strenuous hike since your climbing the entire time. Plenty of places to take a break in the shade. Glass still all over the summit but I did take some back down with me.
