Amazing hike!! Would highly recommend! It rained off and on the whole time but it made it even more beautiful.

Great hike.... cable suspension bridge and view of fall were awesome

I did this hike last Sunday and though I wasn’t expecting it to be cover by snow it was still an awesome hike! The whole way was beautiful river views with mint blue water it was just stunning! I would definitely recommend this hike. One of the most beautiful waterfalls.

Very pretty hike. will do it again.

Beautiful hike. Easy, well maintained.

Gorgeous but be very careful. We found bear scat today! Google maps has not been updated. there is a log that fell, so the road doesn't even look like a road and is closed. the falls are amazing.

Trail was amazing to run! Lots of scenery. Quad crushing hills. Sign is hard to find, FYI.

The only reason I gave it four stars was due to getting to the trail head. If you love to rough up your vehicle then by all means travel the last 5 miles up there early spring with pot holes the size of a car. BUT! Totally worth it. The pools and streams where beautiful and still recommend the hike

Great hike! Went last year, and plan on going again soon. Good hike to take kids, we even took one of those big wheeled child stroller’s. Much is a road. Ppl in the town are pretty friendly and it’s interesting to see how their energy set up runs.

Super pretty hike. The entire trail was covered in hard packed snow and some ice. Boots chains and poles for the win!

First time on this trail. Some ups and downs but not bad. Little muddy in a few spots. Nice photo op. Well worth the trip.

I'm here in mid March...beautiful!

Great trail! unfortunately went in August so the falls was just a trickle. So if you're hiking for the falls, you'll be disappointed! They are very small in comparison to the beauties further north on Hwy. 138!

Beautiful hike with mild very gradual elevation gain and stunning waterfall at the end! There is a snowmobile trail that also leads to the falls, so be sure you find the trail through the woods off to the side of the snowmobile trail so you can enjoy the beautiful forest. The snowshoeing or cross country skiing trail is a little hard to find from the very start, but is easily visible from the cabin just a few feet up the snowmobile trail. The forest trail is also well marked with blue diamonds on the trail throughout the entirety. Highly recommend also checking out the lower falls viewpoint only 1/4 mile down in addition to upper level lookout. Of note, you need a Sno Park pass to park for this hike which we didn’t find listed anywhere else!

Great hike anytime. Both falls are beautiful.

Beautiful hike - waterfalls throughout did not disappoint

Went this weekend. It was amazing. 3/17/18 it was snowy still, slippery in some places. Be careful, but otherwise wonderful!

Wife and I just did the loop yesterday. Beautiful walk. There were a lot of families along the trail and it seemed like even the young kids weren’t having any issues. Well maintained, well marked. We were prepared for a much more difficult hike, but all of the falls and the forest were such a great atmosphere that we really enjoyed ourselves. Casual walk, stopping for photos, a lunch break, and to converse with some folks- the whole thing took 3.5 hours.

Beautiful ravine and falls. Just a tip for other as I accidentally went down the dangerous path:

Make sure you do NOT take the trailhead nearest to the white gate (this one forks left past a makeshift campsite, then drops steeply off a cliff). Go back up the *road* from the white gate a couple hundred feet or so, and look for a dirt/muddy path down. This "easier" path is not easy and still fairly steep, but is not life/death dangerous like the other path (I went up the easier path after seeing other hikers coming down that way).

There's a map at oregonhikers.com that outlines the red path that you want to avoid (unless you're looking for a near-death thrill): http://www.oregonhikers.org/field_guide/Abiqua_Falls_Hike

Do note, if you bring a small car and park at the big gravel lot, its a full 2 to 2.5 miles each way, just to get to the white gate.

Make sure you know what you're getting into, and take screenshots ahead of time (no data access out there), be safe, and enjoy - the falls are absolutely gorgeous.

If you're looking to get good photos, I went in mid March on a sunny day - you'd want to be there before noon or after 3ish to avoid the sun washing out your pics.

A great family friendly hike. You can hike different sections if you are crunched for time or the whole Loop. I've done both ways several times. It does get very busy in the late spring and summer. Best time to enjoy it is on a weekday- less busy.

I wouldn't recommend this to avid hikers, but it's perfect for families and people who don't want a super strenuous hike or to have to go out into the wilderness. For someone who hikes/backpacks as a hobby, it was a nice walk through a park and if I remember correctly much of it is paved, so it's hard to call it a true hike. Physically felt more like 2.5 miles total. Still quite lovely, just depends on what you are in the mood for and it's a perfect place to introduce kids to hiking and nature!

The perfect spot for a long walk and lots of waterfalls. We took our time and hiked this easy loop for about 3 hours.

Have done this hike many times and enjoyed it each time! A very fun short hike with a wonderful view!

Beautiful easy hike with lush rivers and waterfalls. Takes approx. 35 minutes to make the loop. Some trails turn into streams and back to trails. Can be a little confusing to stick on the trail but it doesn't matter that much, it's not a large area to get lost in. Good for parents and kids.

its a really nice trail for all ages with multiple ways to get there

Great trail for toddlers! The waterfall was huge and beautiful! The trail was muddy and wet.

Haven't been yet...I've researched this trail and it is impassible due to the fire that caused washout a couple of years ago. With that said, I believe the only way to reach this falls now is via the Stuart falls trail off of the PCT near Crater Lake which makes it a very long hike!
