Absolutely beautiful waterfall. It's easily seen from the highway and an easy walk from the parking lot. It's more of an uphill paved walk with hoards of people, than it is a trail. The bridge at the top is always busy. In my humble opinion, it was worth dealing with the hoards of people to be up close to it atleast once though. Just do it.

Nice view of the waterfall but it's very crowded., like a tourist trap. I like more secluded hikes but it wasn't too bad once you gained elevation cause most people stayed towards the start. It was a vigorous trail though...just switch backs all the way up.

It was amazing! First time being up in Oregon and this was one of my 1st hikes there. Easy & Beautiful hike. It was pretty packed when I went, causing me to slow down. Older couples, kids, families, you see everyone there. I reccomend it very much!

Beautiful hike/walk incredible views of the gorge along the mostly paved switch back pathway. It's a great hike to share that romantic moment gazing into the eyes of your sweetheart at the base of the waterfall in the whispering mist. Then cruise to the top for an amazing moment of breath taking views only the Columbia gorge can offer.
Make this one a must do it's very easy hike you won't regret it.

This view of the falls from the top of the trail is particularly beautiful. The trail is crowded but it does die out eventually since many tourists are not prepared to do the entire climb. It's short and worth the trip! I like to double this hike with another waterfall in the area like Latourell as they are both short loops.

Nice trail on the bottom. There are about 14 switchbacks to get to the top of the falls. Very crowded.

Great little hike to break up the day of driving! Done this a few times now and enjoy it every time! Trail is mostly asphalt with some dirt trail towards the look out at the top. It's slightly crowded, but worth fighting the other tourists.

Loud, busy, but BEAUTIFUL! This walk is definitely worth the parking and people dodging trouble. It's a nice, paved trail that will take you to a crowded bridge, but experiencing the falls that close makes it worth it. If you have time, definitely stop here to stretch your legs.
