Epic trail but closed till July 15th. You could still do it if you don’t mind walking around the orange fence they installed.

Beautiful mild weekday in early June. Started at 10:30a and finished up just under four hours later. Did the loop in reverse starting with the rim trail, hitting the spur trails to see all the various falls. Not very crowded at all until near the end at South Falls. Parking lot much more full just before 3:00p. Not many people had masks available but all you can do is your part. Many people had their dogs on the Canyon Trail, which isn’t allowed (only the Rim trail, I believe?). All the falls had a good amount of water. Now is the time to see them! AllTrails recorder says I went 11 miles but GPS was tripping out from time to time. Apple Watch said 8.88 miles.

Overgrown. Have to park at view point

Beautiful trail! Love all the waterfalls, spring or early summer is perfect time to visit!

I love the views at the top! Still some wildflowers along the trail. Trail is very narrow, one of the narrower trails I have been on. Couple of beautiful waterfalls at the beginning of the trail. The only reason I gave this trail 4 out 5, because about 0.5 miles of the trail is closed and there is no signs at the cutoff and the end is very tricky. Also, I feel like this trail has more than 728 gain elevation.

This was a really easy to follow trail. It took us a little over 2 hours to complete. Parking was full at north falls so we had to park at the winter falls parking lot.

Very nice and well marked single track trail. Goes amid the forest, crossing a couple of very small creeks. The first mile is steeper and then the train splits between the East and West paths, forming a loop. We did the West trail up, which is a greater incline than East. Gorgeous area at the top with a few benches to enjoy a 360 view of the Coast nearby. Easy parking at the bottom.

Awesome trail with views from also every spot. I’d consider this a somewhat difficult hike for kids as there is a lot of switchbacks and you are right on the edge of ridge, but totally do-able! Going before the sun and heat is best. Dog friendly too! Bring a local beer and cheers at the top!

Marked as “closed” from seaside entrance but still hiked it. A fair amount of fallen trees and pretty muddy, so would definitely wear hiking boots. Great views midway up. Went about 2/3 the way and turned around.

Beautiful hike. Very muddy in parts. I’d make sure to have water resistant shoes. Park is very well maintained. Got there at about 9:00 on Sunday. Parking lot had about 40 cars, but steady flow of cars came in as we got ready. Completely full when we left at 2.

This was my first hike after moving to Portland and the views are spectacular! It’s an easy day hike which I highly recommend if you’re in the area.

Beautiful weather and our first time to the canyon! The parking lot was full of boaters loading into the John Day, and it seemed like most people we saw were either doing that or fishing. We only saw one couple hiking. The trail is flat and beautiful but for bikes, I’d advise a decent mountain bike with thick tires and shocks as the trails varies from dirt to loose thick gravel to rather big rocks. We had to walk our bikes at the first of the trail. We dodged two snakes in the path, so be alert! All in all it only took an hour to do the trail and back. Very fun. Beautiful, well-kept visitor center. I’d go before this place blows up and gets crazy like Silver Falls!

beautiful conditions. would recommend.

Awesome place for family. Easy to very hard hikes. Was busy but area is huge so people space out. Can pay with card at kiosk so that was dope!

Beautiful little dog-friendly loop. Well-marked trail, which we had mostly to ourselves. Suggest starting out left from the trailhead to get the hills out of the way early (last part of the trail is very flat and partially on the road). We went the last day of May, and the wildflowers were in full swing — lovely! Very muddy in quite a few spots. It is within the state park, so fees apply.

Amazing

Awesome little hike. Park is great! there's a kid side and a trailer with swimming holes.
