Nice hike through the woods to a blue pool. Both hikers and bikers out on this trail. Trail js easy enough. Nothing too steep or tricky.

An amazing trail that will make you feel alive. That being said, we didn't make it all the way around due to my buddy's significant knee injury a couple of miles before Cloud Cap. Like most have said before, the river crossings were rather precarious and on two occasions we just sucked it up and got our shoes wet in order to avoid being washed down river. The Eliot Branch crossing before Cloud Cap is very challenging. Extremely steep decent to get to the crossing (crossing had a giant tree across it, which was helpful). My buddy was not thrilled to go down the steep hill to the log crossing and opted just to get himself wet again. The switchbacks back up to Cloud Cap was not very fun especially since we were arriving later than we planned for. Campground there was nice but be prepared for the fair-weather campers that don't necessarily follow 'good camper' rules like driving in and out at all hours of the night, some partiers, etc. It was nice to have a picnic table to eat at though. I will say that you might want to give yourself 3 nights (4 days hiking) to pace yourself. We were shooting for 2 nights and it made the days feel rushed. Hiking poles are a must. Bug spray is a must. Plan your hike to make it to a goat place to camp each night, don't just hike and assume you're going to find a place to lay a tent. We saw one deer and one frog, but perhaps you'll see more wildlife if you give yourself time to sit back and relax a couple of times a day. Hiked in mid July.

Hiking

Worth the 9 washboard miles to get there. Went around 9am & were the only hikers for first half hour. Extremely cool and otherworldly landscape. Gives great perspective of edges of the volcanic impact zone. Super easy hike, hiking boots are unnecessary unless you go off the trail. Nice shady part thru parts. Great interpretive signs. Toilette at the trailhead.

Don’t miss this incredible hike! Super easy for nearly anyone, perhaps with exception of the last 350 yards to the amazing vista. Very few people the afternoon we went. Normally Hike in the am to avoid crowds & heat. There is literally no shade on the trail so please wear sunblock and hat.

Hiking

Wonderful hike! We did 5.2 miles RT to the slough meadows. Worth the additional distance to see the water change so dramatically from raging rapids to tranquility. Easy hike for most; beware that many hikers lack the consideration to wear a mask. The early morning was fine but by 11:00 the ignorant emerged.

Nice ‘wake-me-up’ stop on way south through Oregon. Very windy in afternoon so dress accordingly.

Was out here a couple months ago and it's an absolutely beautiful place to hike. Had the trail pretty much to myself because it was raining which made it even better. Stayed at the falls for a long time and only had 2 other people show up but they only stayed for a few minutes. I basically had hours to myself out there. Was able to take some great pictures of the falls and the surrounding area. This waterfall is definitely at the top of the list. Trail to the falls is easy to follow and not too difficult. First section is through a lava rock field but nothing bad. Trail cuts right through the rocks. Once you get close to the falls you will have to climb over a couple of logs to get right up to it.

HikingFeeGreat!

Very nice and easy hike. There’s plenty of shade and benches along the trail to take a breather, if needed. There is a $5 fee (CASH ONLY) There were a lot of people when my family and I arrived (11:30 AM ish) and most people came in groups/ families of five or more!! My party had three people total. Many people were NOT wearing masks, but there were a few people that put their masks over their nose/mouth in passing.

Very heavily trafficked trail. Well built stairs with railings to help you get to the overlook. If you are feeling adventurous you can make it down to the bottom via a steep rope descent. If you're confident in your abilities I recommend the trek. Definitely worth the effort. (10 points for every instagrammer you see taking photos doing yoga poses)

Beautiful and isolated waterfall! South Trail is the one to take. If you have 4WD you can get pretty close so you don't have quite as many miles to walk. The trail to the falls starts just down from big boulders blocking the unmaintained dirt road. Follow this dirt road and look for an old picnic area. The actual trail starts here. Once you're on it the trail is pretty much just 2 long downhill switchbacks as you descend into the canyon to the river. This is nice but of course coming back up is where the real fun is...

Hiked on a weekday - it wasn’t very crowded and people that were on the trail wore masks when passing. The views are worth it!

Not sure if Anne and I went on the same hike. The bugs were brutal, especially on the lower half. What views? You're in the forest the whole time until you reach the top, and then finally you're able to see all of the mountains that you should have climbed instead. Boring.

Seems there are several ways to get down to the arch. If you initially go left from the parking area it's a small trail off to the right that is pretty steep. it will take you down but you have a pretty good climb over a narrow rock so make sure you are brave or in good shape or both. several people turned back that I saw which was good cause I had the whole area to myself. on the way back up I discovered another trail that was much easier to follow and in better condition. I'd say if you want to go down to the arch look for a trail off to the right from the parking area. Probably a good bit easier and safer.

The nice part of this path is the creekside walk where dogs can play in the water. Otherwise, take another entry point.

I prefer this entry to Bald Hill. More incline, fewer people. It's a great spot to bring your dog for a nice stroll in the fresh air.

This stretch of the river is beautiful and only lightly used. Easy paddle with very little current.

I feel like not many people stop here to explore. It was a beautiful area, 2 beaches to choose from and there's even a pretty large cave to climb down into. Found this area by accident but I ended up exploring the area for several hours. The trail down is an old washed out dirt road so it's not too bad of a walk. Was incredibly windy while I was out there but other than that nothing too crazy.

Hiking

This is a nicely maintained single track trail with gorgeous mountain lakes. It is very dusty for at least the first half. Expect to find horse manure on this shared trail. Nice view of Thielson along the way. There are 5-6 good campgrounds at Maidu Lake and one good site at Lucille Lake. Miller Lake has easy access for day use. Definitely some incline in the 6 miles from Maidu Lake to Miller Lake where there are flush toilets. The mosquitoes were there fierce when they were out but there were only few around midday. Bring Deet. We went Thur to Sat at the end of July and came across only 2 couples on this trail ( more at Miller Lake) during the pandemic.

Quick walk to the lighthouse. I recommend going a little ways up the trail behind the lighthouse which takes you up the hill so you're above the lantern room. It's a pretty cool angle to take photos from.

HikingGreat!

Easy hike even with kids. It is also a good educational hiking trail. I guess it is better to do it early fall season or late spring. Summer time is way too hot. Did the trail mid week so not a lot of people doing it.

Very interesting formation in the rock. If you catch it before high tide you can watch the water splash higher and higher as it comes in. Be careful though the big splashes can come out of nowhere and might get you if you're too close. Keep the kids back around high tide. Razor sharp shells along the inside so falling in would be brutal. Trail is easy and walking on the rocks to get close isnt too bad either.

Had no idea I would actually be able to get down into it until I was standing at the top and saw people walking below. Found my way down and spent quite a while inside taking photos. Luckily there weren't a lot of people there that day so the photos turned out great. Keep in mind the tide schedule cause you'll be wading through water to get back to the beach if you aren't careful. Beautiful area!
