We've been down both sides of the river on these trails and both provide great views and a good hike. Narrow paths and re routing to avoid water falls can be challenging if you have a big pack, day trip packs are no problem.

Have done this hike twice in the past month and once was with our dogs. It is a very narrow path that has views of the Rogue River.

This was a good hike; for the most part, I'd rate it easy-moderate. However, rocks on some sections of the trail make for a semi-difficult passage requiring a slower, more deliberate and careful pace. Also, some sections are very narrow and there are steep drop-offs here and there. The trail is, basically, carved into the canyon wall along the south side of the Rogue River. During the afternoon of 09/26/14, the trail was shady and a very nice 70F. The many overlooks afforded stunning views of the Rogue River and it's canyon.

One of my favorite local hikes. The trail is well maintained, follows the river all the way. The falls are powerful but not huge drops like people imagine water falls to be. Sandy areas and rocks to sit on and enjoy a lunch. We watched rafters go around the falls and over the fish ladder, salmon jumping, lots of birds and fauna. Very moderate and peaceful.

Definitely worth it. Even in the middle of winter this trial is awesome. It's very quiet, a decent length, and undeniably beautiful. The trail itself is literally dug out of the mountain an is pretty precarious so keep a close eye on kids.We took my dog and he had a blast both on the trail and in the river, and we didn't have to worry about him running into people because we were the only ones there. It would actually make a really cool mountain bike trail, unfortunately that's illegal but I'm sure if you really wanted to it'd be fine.

This is a great moderate trail, and lunch at the "falls" is a great place to enjoy the scenery and Rogue River. I have gone twice, once in March, and once in April, and the earlier trip although more muddy and slick, was a much better hike with a ton of waterfalls, and no traffic other than us.
