Fun little hike, rain was coming down hard and made the trails muddy, but still a worthwhile trail, and the camping shelters kept us warm and dry. Don't miss the WWII bunkers!

Beautiful moss covered everything with varied terrain. A great place test out some gear or break in new boots due to the varying terrain. I experienced gravel, dirt, water over rocks, moss covered paths, inclines, declines, lightly showered with water from waterfalls, etc.
Waterfalls of all shapes and sizes can be seen from varying angles and directly behind.
This includes some of the smaller day trails; definitely worth experiencing.
Plenty of parking available; five dollar parking for the day at south trail. Also, there is a picnic area, small cafe, and restrooms at the south trail entrance. There's some parking at the north trail, not nearly as much as at south trail. There is a single privy at north trail also.
Definitely recommend if in the area. Not to be missed.

Hiked this with my husband pushing our bob stroller and my 7 month old baby strapped to me in the Ergo. Difficult but amazing. We loved every minute. The views are outstanding!

The falls are so beautiful! I was the only human in sight on a Wednesday morning.
Getting close to the falls really makes you feel the energy of the water and reflect on the lessons a river can teach us.

Short hike with beautiful views of the valley. Not much for parking and really easy.

Probably one of my all time favourite hikes. It’s a mix of hard up hill, hard downhill and everything in between. The beauty of the area on a sunny day, is magnanimous.the hike itself is hard, with slightly sketchy moments, but nothing to fear. Just put your head down and keep going.

Full value day hike.

Dear Oregon residents,
Don’t privatize a beautiful landmark and then complain when people walk on your land to see it. Gorgeous lighthouse.

Get area to run, walk, bike, horseback ride. Well groomed trails and very scenic.

I thought people might have been over exaggerating the level of mud on this trail especially when I started out. The first half of this trail is well maintained and not muddy at all until you hit the first view point with railing. From then on is sinking mud puddles and lots of roots to navigate. I wouldn’t call it hard but it’ll definitely slow you down since you’re constantly checking your footing. I would save this one for summer when it’s dried out. But the views are worth the trouble if you can’t wait! Also I didn’t notice it on the way out to the cape but you’re going gradually down hill the whole time so the hike back out is mostly uphill. Extremely gradual uphill but constant nonetheless.

Clearly a cousin to the falls of Silver Falls with the advantage of stairs down to the pool beneath the falls. The walk through the pastures was lovely!

Beautiful and moderate hike. It was worth to hike 10 miles. It rained and we were equipped. Wear waterproof hiking shoes, raincoat, and bring plenty of water and protein bars. We hiked this trail in March 2017.

Loved it!

Great thank u

Love this hike , took all the kids and the dogs on a pretty rain day , muddy and a lot of up hill but totally worth the view !!!!

Great short hike. The trail was pretty muddy so have hiking boots or possibly rubber boots.

The trail was great! It was muddy like other people said but we live where we live and it didn’t hinder the hike at all. No obstacles on trail and well maintained. So glad this beauty is open! If you want the solitude then take the upper falls hike loop. I had it all to myself this morning and I started late.

Falls, falls and 8 more falls. This is one of the premier locations in Oregon for waterfalls per square mile. If you love waterfalls, a good moderate hike and Oregon greenery, this is a must see. Giant waterfalls all along the trail with some opportunities to follow the trail behind the falls. Great photo ops, and spots to stop, relax, and maybe eat some lunch. The only negative is the popularity of this State park. Lots of people on trail and many out of towners. Good excuse to meet some new people though. If you aren't into that, hit the trail early to avoid the crowds.

Really great! Beautiful scenery. Only thing is that it gets really muddy when it rains. Great place for bikejoring. You can train your dogs without other people being distracting. Long trails for the dogs to run.

The Oneonta Falls are CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE due to the massive Columbia River Gorge fire of 2017. Please check the link below for updates.

I've hiked this several times but yesterday was by far the most beautiful time of year to go! I also went from 5:00-7:00.

Some trails are not super roller skate friendly, but this one is. I took it across the 205 bridge and had someone pick me up on the other side. It is really a very nice path for wheels of any kind. I love watching the birds and river on one side and planes taking off and landing on the other.

quite a bit busier than i was expecting, even after reading other reviews, but there is plenty of parking.

One of my favorites hikes in Oregon so far! Went on a beautiful sunny day about a week ago, and it wasn’t super busy. Long line of cars backed up at Ecola park entrance though. Muddy trail but overall easy to navigate and follow. The beach is gorgeous and make sure you climb up to see the waterfall(s)!!! Will be back for sure.

great area! lots of options, pretty muddy so wear good rain/mud shoes

I would suggest doing this early in the morning in the summer. I hiked this mid day and wish I had made it earlier. I hiked Tam-a-lau trail at Lake Billy Chinook before hiking this particular trail, so I arrived later than I wanted. The views are amazing! We brought binoculars with us and was able to watch a lot of rock climbers. There were 2 people in the mouth of monkey face! It was somewhat busy, but never seemed too crowded. Would like to do this one again!

plenty of paths to choose from
plenty of sites to see
close to Salem
decent amount of people
but most are decent

Do not take dogs on this hike TICKS are EVERYWHERE. I found at least ten on my dogs and four on me. Otherwise the hike was really fun and quick. I would rate it a lot higher if it weren't for the ticks. WTA was clearing the trail when I went on it so poison oak was not an issue. Triple check yourself for ticks after this hike

Oregon’s finest trail besides the crowds!
