I suggest hiking here in the early spring or late fall to truly enjoy the views. The summer time can be quite busy as Portlanders will travel out here to swim in the opal waters. I went in late March to have most of the place to ourselves. A must see for Oregonians!

Park rangers/state park has hatred towards anything but horse riders. They would rather see trails get destroyed by horses before allowing families to enjoy trails on bicycles.
Great hike for the whole family! Steeper ascend at the top, so in experienced hikers may find it challenging. You never know when it's raining in town the sun could be shining at the top. Heavily trafficked but avoiding the main trail will provide more privacy.
One of the most photographed waterfalls in Oregon, Abiqua Falls is a must see. This hike can be as short as 1.5 miles round trip-if you have the right car to get to the trailhead. Read more on my experience here : https://www.heroregonlife.com/single-post/2017/04/17/Abiqua-Falls
Beautiful trail with a few different waterfalls. It's also a dog friendly trail!
Love this trail! One of my dogs favs! Following the river trail is the best in my opinion. When my husband comes along he always has his fishing pole to throw in a line while the dog and I mosey on down the trail. Also is never too crowed, and when you do pass people they are always the friendliest! I try and take the dog to this one at least once a week!
