Pretty easy hike. The drive to the trailhead is longer than i'd like but, the scenery and lack of cell phones, cars, and aircraft while on the trail make it worth it. I did read somewhere that trail-running was one of the activities you could do here. I wouldnt advise it. Lots of rocks to cross and no room to pass if you meet other hikers. Otherwise, enjoy.

This was a great hike. Directions from this APP were right on. There is a restroom over the bridge from the trail head which I wished I had used before heading out. On our way back we were stopped by a rattlesnake on the trail. Thankfully, there were quite a few people on the trail to help get it out of the path so everyone and their dogs could walk by. Definitely will do this again.

Very fun hike (but not for the kids or elderly). You need to watch your footing for most of this hike or you will trip on rocks or go over the edge. With all that aside I really enjoyed the scenery of the Rogue river, falls and all of the rest that this trail has to offer.

Really nice overlooks of the river on this scenic ledge trail. Can do this almost any time of year (best if not snow and ice). It's a scenic ledge trail most of the way. Well maintained. Park at the Bridge. I think for a short hike, best use south side of the river. The actual Rogue River Trail is on the north side of the river. Aside - the Rogue River Trail is a long multi-day trail that can be hiked from lodge to lodge. What's great about that is - you have a light pack, you will get a cooked super and a roof over your head every night, alcohol at most lodges, breakfast the next morning, and a packed lunch for the next day of hiking on down the river. You can even do your laundry every night. A car shuttle can be arranged at the end (check out river rafting and boating/fishing companies) - most, with a fee will give you a lift in their vans to your starting point!

I love bringing people new to southern Oregon down this trail. It's an easy hike with lots of shade and a spectacular view at the end. This trail is very well traveled and dogs can be seen often. I would highly recommend the Rainie Falls hike to anyone visiting the area.

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.
