Great trails!

Steep down and back. Smoke was really bad.

It can get very cold and windy. Come prepared for the weather.

Exceptionally beautiful Trail, I didn't do the whole thing as I'm trying to build up endurance in my children. We made our own 3-mile loop ( you can see in my recording), which goes off trail and connects with the other side of the main loop. Definitely give this trailer shot.

Our family of 4 completed this hike today and loved it (about 3.5 hours including a 20 min lunch). It wasn't very difficult, very pretty and the return trail on the lollipop was definitely our favorite. The falls have a unique look which was very nice. The round trip distance with my GPS watch was 6.87 miles from the trailhead. Also you must get a day pass from town, you can't get it at the trailhead. Loved it!

lots of interconnecting tails can make this a good day hike. I'm fond of the cows on the way in.

Took 5 Kids did great !! Recommended foot ware and pack snacks and plenty of hydration!! Pool is super cold takes your breath away but worth it !! A bit of steep rocky area to get down to main pool must be in decent shape and have stability with balance !!

Beautiful view of the canyon. Spectacular views of the cascades. It was on the more difficult side of things for me, especially the huge incline gain to the top. Well worth it! You can see the monkey face really good once you get down the other side.

The china creek trail is the prettiest part!!! We started at the Park at north end of trail and did the China Crest, lighthouse, and then hobbit trail and beach to park again. The lighthouse part added the burn, the rest was easy.

I can't imagine a more beautiful hike. Not so much of a workout at the pace we went, stopping so many times for photos and to enjoy the views, but worth every second. If you are at all considering this, do it. You'll be so glad you did. (But start out early, especially on the weekend--it will get crowded.)

Good, steep in places hike with amazing views

Good out and back hike. Did on a Saturday starting around 1:00 pm. With lunch and some river time we were back to the car at about 5:15 pm. The hike up until the trailhead is pretty easy and although the ascent to the bluffs is a bit steep, it's not so bad. The bluffs are a great lunch spot, and we didn't go much further than that. The best spots to go down to the river are early in the trail and it was great to dip our toes into on the way back. There were no bugs except a few bees around the bluffs, but they didn't bother us much. Heads up though - there were apparently a few break-ins today so make sure to not leave any valuables in your car!

on Trail of Ten Falls

Scenic views of waterfalls are plentiful on this hike. It didn't feel hard but one does need to be prepared for the distance. It was heavily trafficked on a midday Saturday – so don't expect a solitary experience – but that is to be expected. North Falls are worth the extra distance.

Did the Salt Creek Falls to Vivian Lake and ended up 2miles down a forest service road. Best advice is to turn right towards diamond falls not left to follow the Vivian lake trail sign. Go see Diamond Falls and then hike up to the lookout and keep going up. You will eventually cross railroad tracks and look to your left for the trail.

This is a difficult but fun trek up to a beautiful summit. The last bit is a challenge but the 360 degree view is incredible and well worth it. We saw a lot of wild flowers, berries and fungi along the way and made several photo stops as the view is spectacular at several points along the way. Bring water and sunblock, there’s a good portion out from under the trees.

Trillium use to be something of beauty.
Although the view will always be there..
The lake sticks&full of endless dead fish.
There's plenty of trash laying all about.
Disrespectful.
Besides being so heavy in traffic-any of the multiple lakes with less crowds will suit better!

Super popular trail, seriously the foot traffic.
I'm glad I did it at least once but that will be the last time.
Not a good first starter trail if you're not use to hills.
It only flattens out once you're almost to the smaller, clear lake itself.
Well kept up with trash&the maintenance but like I said-heavy traffic.

We came here to mountain bike because this app has mountain biking as an activity here, but there is NO MOUNTAIN BIKING here. Someone even made sure we saw the rule sign. He was very concerned we did not ride bikes there. Other than that it looks like a great place to go for a walk.

Short easy-moderate hike with breathtaking views. Great for kids and lots of shady spots on top for picnics. Well worth the morning.

Was great for swimming and hiking, I did it with 3 kids 14, 8, 6, water was beautiful and clear. Got there early and the parking lot was half full after we got back it was jam packed. Overall it was a really great hike.

9:30. On a Saturday. Not very busy on the way down. A dozen people around the lakeshore. Saw 6 or 7 times as many on the way back up around 11:30.

Smoke obscured the view initially. Once we were about .25m down, the smoke thinned and we got to see some nice views. Worth the trip despite the smoke.

Very steep. All downhill on the way down and uphill on the way up. 7 year old held his own. Might be rough on families that don’t hike much and have small children.

Well maintained wide pathways are great for family outings!

I hiked this with my husband and my three-year-old dog in August. It was an easy hike, and flat. We chose to start the loop on the bay side. The first 3.5 miles along the bay were on a gravel road. In hot weather this would be difficult for dogs. About the last mile of the gravel road our dog was seeking shade. The rocks were also a little sharp for her paws. She managed. The bay side of the walk was comfortably warm. The ocean side was windy and we used our sweatshirts and wind breakers. The last 4 miles were on the beach and most of the time we were the only ones on the beach. Toward the end we saw a few people. It was beautiful and I would recommend this hike. I’d say it’s more like a long walk (8 miles for us). Bring a lunch and rest on the beach for a bit!

trail running

I've walked, ran, and roller bladed on this trail.

What an amazing hike,
Theres a huge Creek and such geometrical forms on the trail,
It was the perfect weather and great sunrise to watch

My wife and I hike this almost daily. There are many trials and a road that circles around.the mid point of the hill. There are great views of the rogue valley and the surrounding areas.

Beautiful trail in a magical forest. You get old growth giant moss covered trees as well as the coast/beach.

Stunning views, pretty steep at times. I started in Seaside and only saw one person for the first four miles. Got pretty crowded the closer I got to Indian Beach. Large portion of trail is very muddy. Definitely wear hiking boots (not shoes) as the mud is ankle deep in many places. So worth the effort.

I hike this trail several times a year it is easy, but there are a few steep sections. There isn't much if any snow during the winter which makes it an excellent place to hike when other places are snowed in. A couple if years ago while hiking the trail there was a rattlesnake that buzzed at my dog on the edge of the trail. Beware if you are hiking with children. That was the only time I saw a rattlesnake but I have heard them a few times.

Nice easy trail, good views of sparks lake and interesting rock formations
