great for newbs and experts alike. a little muddy but hey its oregon and its January. couldn't ask for anything more.

Hiked 1/19/19. Road to trailhead is open thankfully. We weren’t sure if it’d be closed for the winter. Definitely challenging to find the waterfall in the winter-snow was covering most of the trails the higher we got. Thankfully a few people left pretty detailed directions as to how to get there-specifically the outbound collective, while researching on the internet, so we were able to find them! The last part, scramble to get down to the falls I ended up putting spikes in my hiking shoes. It was steep, snowy and icy and they helped me A LOT. Pretty dangerous to go without any this time of year. Was a challenge but we did it and it was absolutely beautiful! Would definitely like to come back when there’s no snow to go down to the bottom of the falls and not freeze getting soaked by them.

Wonderful hike with multiple south facing vistas allowing you to get a real feel for the scale of Neahkahnie. After reaching the end of the cape, views to the north can be seen as well.

Trail was very muddy after several days of rain but we had shoes and gear for it (I’d rather walk through mud than trip over tree roots anyway).

Very nice easy walk on well maintained trails.

Did this trail on 1/20. Not enough snow for snowshoeing, but you absolutely need crampons or shoes with fabulous traction on ice. There are several areas where you're walking at a steep incline on ice.

The scenery was beautiful.

Completed this loop as part of larger circuit that stretches entire length of the Tumalo Creek Trail, and then returns on the Shevlin Loop. Nice peaceful sounds of the creek running all the way through.

Connected this with the Shevlin Loop trail to complete the circuit.

Would suggest going counter clockwise, and at the middle point on the south side take the trail going further south and follow it to the left until it starts taking you north again. You will eventually end up on the West Larch trail, which will connect up with the Railroad Trail. Take the Railroad Trail until it connect back up to the Shevlin loop, which will take you back to the starting point.

Great walk along the river, and right off the main drag. I found it a great way to introduce myself to some of the natural wonders of the area. You also catch a glimpse of houses overlooking the river, which kind of helps to acclimate one to what is happening in the area. Lots of people moving in, and scenes like these wet your appetite for the rest of what this fantastic city has to offer.

Eventhought it was raining, it was a great hike. Beautiful view of the gorge.

Hiked in June 2018. Have to say this is one of my favorite hikes. Not too difficult. Made it to the top in an hour and a half and got to see all the amazing views of the surrounding landscape. One of the best views of the lake is from the top and the that’s 1/4 mile is a fantastic walk across a long ridge overlooking the lake on one side and eastern Oregon on the other. Such an amazing hike would strongly recommend during the summer!

The trail is a nice introduction to snowshoeing. Very well marked trail. In winter is actually about 5 miles since you have to start at the SnoPark. Just too crowded for my taste.

Go in the winter when water flow is superb!

super nice river walk, very flat, awesome sculpture, really cool fishing exercise circuit. walked in the winter and it was nice to walk and talk (especially after a few spots in the Bend Ale Trail)

Trails are easy for beginners...

I absolutely loved hiking this trail, ended up hiking almost 13 miles to see the entire thing! So many beautiful waterfalls and you get to walk behind 4 of them which was incredible!! I highly recommend!!!

A couple of things about this trail - first, the smells at the beginning are terrible, but they go away around a mile and a half. Absolutely no restrooms. Great for getting miles in. The location that AllTrails sends you to wasn't correct - it puts you at the gate of someone's house. The gravel parking lot is across the canal at (^) N/S of Hwy 126 (MP 23.8) W of Leaburg Dam, Oregon 97489 right next to the fish hatchery.

We recently had some rain and the trail wasn’t passable today. There is a stream that you need to cross but with the rain it was a impassable. We will come back in the summer and try it again.

Short trail but perfect for kids. Challenging enough for the little ones and Nice waterfall at the end for the adults

I made it to the top today and it took all the will power I had. Didn’t get the sunny view but will try sometime in the summer again when I’m in much better shape! The views came out intermittently, and I was able snag a couple fun scenes.

Good hike. I’d say it’s on the easy side.

This loop is not 4 miles, it’s more like 5.5! It was a great trail and I highly recommend it but if you were hoping for only 4 miles, you’ll be sad! Winter time is great, saw lots of waterfalls and not a lot of people out for a Saturday.

Almost had the place to ourself for the hike. Some slush and snow but enough bare road that microspikes would be annoying.

Heavy salamander traffic! Watch you step. Not just for the little crawly critters but also the makeshift bridges. Those things are just rotten logs laid down across the run off areas. They are far from safe, so watch your step!

Great trail! Fairly easy out and back hike.

Great trail. Not technical but it is difficult because of the steep grade the whole way up and down. I would prob leave the dogs and little kids at home or hike another trail with them. Really beautiful views all around at the top, even on a cloudy and rainy day. I couldn’t find the tie ins to the other trails at the top, was going to do a loop but just did an out and back. Not enough signage up there and many little trails that go nowhere.

Awesome trail that starts from the Meadows Nordic Center. The elevation gain is all at the end during the switchbacks. The views from the meadows are pretty spectacular and the shelter is in good shape. We had to break trail most of the way, but with GPS it isn’t hard to follow the trail.

This is one of my favorite waterfalls. It's so beautiful and I have a connection with this trail. I am beyond sad it is still closed.

Hiked on 1/15/19: smooth road to TH, minimal parking, no fee to park, no bathrooms but Cascade Locks is close by. Well-marked trail with easy incline. Beautiful forest although the Eagle Creek Fire definitely left it’s charred mark. Pass under a few ugly power lines and logging road. The falls are beautiful! Nice easy hike for families.

What a wonderful place to visit! The park was clean, no trash spewed about. There was 1 homeless encampment, but it was well off the trail. The Ashland Creek runs along the trail, adding sound to a visually beautiful walk. We encountered at least 30 other couples walking, which was nice to see. We will make this a regular place to visit!
