Sadly we attempted this one today but the road is packed with a few feet of snow so we didn’t have access. We will be back though in a month to see if the snow has melted enough.

I like to sit down and hang out after I’ve reached the waterfall. Today that was impossible. It was so cold I had to go back about 1/4 of a mile and sit and read. It was a nice easy hike and I would like to try it again when it’s warmer outside.

One of my favorite trails. I’ve done this hike twice- December 2016 and August 2017. Had the trail to myself each time. This hike is very remote and peaceful.

Fun and short hike. Best in the summer time! So you can play in the falls

The drive out to the Falls is beautiful, a few times we were unsure if we were still on the correct road. But finally we saw the trail head. The trail is very narrow, with roots trying to slip you up the whole way down. We went in January and the trail was very muddy but after A mile later we saw what we came there for, a waterfall! It was definitely worth the hike down and back. The hike in is a slight downhill hike until you hit the falls, which means the hike out is uphill all the way out. There is a restroom at the trailhead but I was a little nervous about using it. We never saw the first human on the trail, which was nice. We also had our dogs with us and they were able to maneuver the trail without any issues. Great hike!

Absolutely beautiful

Love this hike. Good place to take dogs. Fabulous photos.

We were alone mid June, granted it snowed heavily. The trail is good for all skill levels, as described. Getting down to the base travels right next to the waterfall: an amazing feeling. A lot of mist close up although some logs downstream allow different access points for great photos. Very uniquely wide waterfall.

Well-maintained trail and relatively easy to get right down to the Falls.

A great hike down to the Falls. In early spring, the water was so high, it created another waterfall.

was great, nice hike I stayed and camp next to fish lake

Nice, remote waterfalls. When I went there was no one around maybe because it isn't that easy to find and it is out of the beaten path. There is parking for about 5 cars or so. The trail is not perfect and you will need to go around/over a couple obstacles. There is a tiny space at the bottom. more than 2-3 people would be a crowd but the water is at ankle level.

The fire last year (2015) really did some damage but as you get to the end, and down to the river, it as green, and lush, as you could ask for. This is my second time doing this hike and I plan on doing it again next year to see how the forest has recovered. There are lots of mosquitos so, bring some good spray. If you don't want to pack in a lot of water, the river water is cold and delicious.

The other reviews do it justice enough. I'll just one important bit. BRING MOSQUITO repelant. My wife and son were bit a bunch. I think my wife got over 70 bites on her. I carried my 8 month old on my back the whole route. only in one spot had to pass her off to get around a fallen tree. It was a challenge being my first hike in years and having to carry a 25 lbs baby. Last year the fore burnt a lot of the surrounding area but right along the river it is very green and still looks amazing. Definitely use mosquito repelant before hand though.

It was a beatiful place to visit. Great for a quick stopover. Not much of a hike, though.

on Shadow Falls Trail

Did this one in late January the falls were rushing and beautiful. Trail was muddy in some places but easily passable.

Enjoyed the short walk with my 7 year old. Beautiful falls. There is a perfect spot to view / have lunch off trail at top of falls.

Short beautiful hike, we went on thanksgiving day, cold partly frozen ground. Waterfall is lovely though. Worth the 20 minute hike on the way out of crater lake.

Boundary Springs is the headwaters for the Rogue River and is located in the northwest corner of Crater Lake National Park. The trailhead is outside of the park and is isolated from the normal paved roads and activity near the lake proper. We met one other person on the trail and essentially had the entire forest and the springs all to ourselves. This is a very nice quiet and isolated hike. The headwaters to the Rogue River are more an exit point to an underground river rather than what you typically envision as true springs. Although there were plenty of those around the area, the large amounts of water exiting from underground explained why the entire trail heads parallels a significant large creek/small river. I was expecting the river to gradually taper down to a small trickle by the time we got to the springs but that never happened. It's a little surreal looking at what seems to be a full rushing river come out of nowhere from the side of a large hill. I advise taking a good topographical map of this trail as there is one point approximately 0.6 miles from the trailhead where the trail sharply branches off to a hard left. If you are not paying attention you will miss this turn off the main trail. If you find yourself hiking in a direction with the river flow, you missed the turnoff. Presently there is a small sign on a tree wrapped in a small pink ribbon to mark this turnoff. The trail is essentially flat with a minimal overall elevation gain but there are the typical ups and downs of the trail as it parallels the Rogue River. Nothing more than 100 feet gain or loss at a time. We hiked this trail in late October but there was still plenty of water everywhere. A beautiful sunny day with temperatures in the low 60"s. Perfect for hiking.

We hiked this trail late one August afternoon. There was absolutely no other human being during the long drive to the trailhead nor on the trail itself. I'm sure there is a lot more water running in the spring but the falls were beautiful nonetheless. An easy hike for all ages but realize that it's downhill all the way to the overlook meaning uphill on your way out.

I accessed this trail off HWY 138 near Glide, Oregon using these directions: turn south on Little River Road (County Road 17) and follow for 6.6 miles. Turn right at the covered bridge on Cavitt Creek (Road #82B) and continue 11.6 miles on Roads 82 and Forest Road #25 to the trailhead. Follow Trail #1504 to the falls.
This is a moderate hike into a nice view of Shadow Falls. Lots of green forest to enjoy. The only bad thing was someone let their large dogs run off leash on the trail and out of their view. I was glad I did not have my dogs with me. I always keep them on leash when I hike in areas I know other people might be.

I am not sure why this says it is in Tiller, Oregon. The location is about 70 miles away by road. It is located about 11 miles north of Union Creek. This is a short trail that has switch backs and is downhill to National Creek Falls. I enjoy this waterfall so much, I have been 3 times. There was one time that I went that the mosquitos were swarming like crazy so I took 2 pictures then headed back up the trail. Since the way in is downhill, the way back is all uphill.
