3 Gorgeous waterfalls. Also several small waterfalls spilling out by the road on the drive to it. The drive to it is pretty with some overlooks of the coastal range but some of the roads are not in good shape at all. Great hike.

Beautiful hike on a wintery day. Ride in a little bumpy, but very doable with the right vehicle. NO ice, snow, or rain on the trail.

Kentucky falls was a bit confusing trying to find. I almost turned back a few times. It is really in the middle of nowhere... But so worth the trouble.
the hike is to the falls is all decent. (makes for awesome trail running)
the falls are epic and loud, the trail continues on for a ways past the falls and keeps descending.
It looks like there are a couple spots to camp off the trail.
Very enjoyable and scenic. I highly recommend it.

Great hike even though it was raining, will be going back when it's sunny! Even with the rain the trail was good.

The entire drive to the trail we thought we were going the wrong way since it was all gravel road and poorly marked. The drive itself was spectacular though, so there isn't too much of a complaint. The location also helps keep crowding down. The hike itself is very nice, the switch backs made the area seem less steep than it actually was and I didn't need to stop at all to catch my breath. The falls themselves are wonderful, I had only been expecting one but you see a total of about 3 along the way. Great, great, great, will do again.

Trail is beautiful, very well kept. Steep on the return. I would suggest the Reedsport route, we initially came from Eugene off of 126 and the gravel road to get there was a bit rough in places.

There are 3 Falls on this 4.5 mile Out and Back trail. All the falls are beautiful. The overall elevation gain is 800 feet, so you definitely get a workout coming back to the parking lot. The only downside to this hike is getting to the trailhead. I came from Eugene and once you turn off Dunn Ridge Rd, you have to drive on an unpaved/gravel road for about 3.5 miles before you get on 919, which is paved.
