Went here today and it was so beautiful and the kids loved it. My dog did great also. Can't wait to go back in the summer and enjoy the beautiful water!

Stopped by late in the day on my way home from Florence, OR. It was worth seeing.You do need to be a little careful on the metal grated bridges if they are wet. The trees had fallen leaves, and there were are some uneven rocks sunk on the trail. It is a watch your step kind of deal here and there, but not too bad overall. It is pretty easy for all age groups. I loved the cascading waterfalls all along the way, ferns, big boulders covered in green moss. The sound of the water is relaxing.

Lovely place! My dog is quite tolerant and unfazed, but we did hurry over the grate sections so not to hurt paws, keep her from getting nervous, etc. She is a medium sized dog. Grates can be slick for anyone! careful! The cool thing is as I remember it, the grate sections were way into the trail, so you can choose not to go past that point. there are plenty of falls and wading in COLD water before that point. The grate sections are broken up with regular trail. Some points are a lil high and looking down thru grate if your faint of heart is not recommended! Beautiful location, lots of great water views, access, trees, etc!

This was a very simple hike. Went her Mother's Day 2013.it was very crowded and the bathroom was destroyed people were doing their business behind the outhouse. The trial was overgrown and I wouldn't recommend dogs because of the grate section that hovers over the creek. My small dogs feet would go threw the holes my big dog would have had a tough time. The fall was pretty.

It was a beautiful hike/walk. Not by any means difficult and from beginning to end was a quick walk but would be almost perfect for those who can't do a lot of climbing or strenuous workout. I would caution those who are not steady on their feet or those with small children (unless they are VERY watched over when walking) as there are a couple of spots that the trail does get a little tight and with the speed of the water rushing and the few drop off spots next to the slimmer trail sections it could pose a hazard. It is a very lightly used area (might be more when summer comes).

An easy stroll with beautiful stream sounds and delicious fresh and sweet smells. Admire the large trees, the both still and fast clear waters. Spot some cute and bright orange crawfish climbing around the moss.

Was a wonderfully easy trail to access. We took 53 photos, and although the waterfall wasnt as spectacular in the fall, it was a beautiful day hike.
