I hike National Creek Falls several times a year, it's absolutely gorgeous. A few times early in the season you can't make it to the falls because of a lot of fallen trees along the road. The trail starts above the falls and you hike down to the base of the falls. When you arrive at the base of the falls step down around the point at the bottom and you can see the rest of the falls which are obscured by a Ledge. You can cross the creek at the base of the falls and play in the water. Four years ago a lady fell and broke her leg so be careful. It is a easy hike.

Beautiful and short hike

One of my favorites. Gorgeous view

Beautiful! I even collected a few stones from the base of the falls. Refreshing and rewarding.

Awesome little trail. Great for kids. beautiful waterfall with lots more to enjoy.

This was a great hike for any time of the day. Gorgeous falls and love the access for all views.

Beautiful hike and full of history! Bring bug spray!

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

Nice and refreshing! Short hike with misting waterfall was just a short drive off the main highway.

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.

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

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.

Not to difficult of a trail nice waterfall at the end.

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.

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.
