perfect for relaxing and getting out of the city noise

It's a pretty nice hike, especially if you are wanting to stay in town! We had a stroller and 6 kids 5 and under. This hills are totally manageable with a jogging stroller and the path is wide enough. Overall it was pretty good.

About 5 out of the 7 miles are on a gravel road, with no signage to the side trail that takes you to opal pool. Still beautiful, but expected a lot more due to previous reviews. Opal creek is more of a family area than a woody experience. The opal colored creek is gorgeous, but the trail itself was very boring. Plenty of swimming holes.

Great hike! Would recommend hiking shoes instead of tennis shoes and maybe some bug spray. Amazing views and wildlife!

Nice easy hike. About 2.1 miles on the PCT in the beginning, followed by a jaunt up a gravel road to dry creek falls.

At 4,881 feet, it's the tallest peak within the wilderness area where it seats offering up amazing views for us from The Three Sisters up to Mount St. Helens. On clear days I've heard you can see all the way to Mt. Shasta in northern California. We enjoyed an amazing sunset over the Cascade Range that made for brilliant colors with all the smoke from the wild fires going on. We setup our hammocks in some trees with some help from a large bush and creeping pine we had a protective barrier from the exposed ridge next to us just a bit below the summit. We made a hearty spaghetti on our stoves with fresh veggies pre cut up and seasonings and some tomato paste for a delicious saucey mountain top dinner! Slept/laid in my hammock from 1am-6am. The air was still and warm and most the night I wasn't even in my sleeping bag. It was enjoyable with the sounds of spotted owls further down the mountain and the full moon making its way across the sky though. Out of the hammock at 6:15 to watch the sunrise. With the still air over night the smoke moved back in and shrouded our views of Mount Jefferson and Hood unfortunately but it was still beautiful. We then spent some time exploring around the summit, this mountain is awesome! After that we had some breakfast, packed up camp and proceeded back down the trail. Had some incredible hummingbirds following me for awhile pausing on branches from time to time in front of me or hover within feet and buzzing by, it was incredible. Half way down we found a spring making puddles in the dry creek bed, what a sight as we were getting thirsty after using the rest of our water with breakfast and the next available water was towards the bottom only a mile from the car. We filtered it out because of pine needles and bugs on top of the surface but boy it was the clearest, best tasting, most refreshing water ever! Feeling hydrated again we made our way down the rest of the trail stopping to observe two woodpeckers busy at work before arriving back to the trailhead. We also enjoyed some wild edibles along the way including: wood sorrel, fireweed, huckleberry, salmonberry, thimbleberry, and blackberry. This hike was sweet!!!

If you want a real Oregon adventure just go ahead and go to Butte Creek. The trail it self is a bit short but, the journey to get there is fun and will yield gorgeous views.

This trail is perfect for hiking or trail running. My son and I tried it on our bikes which is not advisable. Bikes are only allowed on the first part of the trail. It would probably be a fun trail for mountain bikers, but it is very crowded with runners and hikers and is narrow. Definitely not a good family bike ride! We sure had a memorable adventure though! We'll be back to hike it on foot. It is beautiful!

Exotic enveloped watery log laden trail. Dangerous for old folks, younger folks, and animals. Expect to get soaked. Would have been five stars but swamped by hikers takes away some of the majesty of the moment. Still very fun and met cool people!...but also a couple shitty people.

Great easy hike. Beautiful falls.
