Beautiful and efficient way to see a TON of waterfalls! It's most impressive in the late spring! Sure wish dogs were allowed on this trail, though.

It was a great and beautiful hike. The only thing that wasn't so great was that we hiked the trial in August when there was no rain to help the water falls. so we really only saw like 7 of the 10 water falls. Even then they weren't as big as they should have been. I was told after the hike to come back and hike it around April/May when the rain has come. Other then that it was a awesome hike I really suggest this one!:)

Beautiful trail. Because of a time crunch we couldn't see all ten falls so we did our best to make the most of our time. We drove up to Parking Lot F and walked down to the South Falls (#1 on the map). It was a short hike that was mostly paved with some stairs and a small switchback. There were lots of kids on this trail. We then drove up and parked at the Winter Falls Trailhead and hiked to Winter Falls (#7), Middle North Falls (#6), Drake Falls (#5), Double Falls (#4), and Lower North Falls (#3). Most of the trail was dirt/gravel with a few grated bridges. The only moderately steep section was getting down to the #7. There were hikers of all ages on this section. #4 and #7 were a little on the weak side due to the dry summer but it was still a great little hike. I would do it again in a heartbeat. Enjoy!

This trail is one of the most beautiful spots in Oregon, with more waterfalls than you can shake a hiking stick at. September isn't the best time to go---especially not at the end of such a dry summer. Water levels are dramatically down, which takes away a lot of splendor.

Note: no dogs allowed on the trail. Also, this is a VERY popular spot, so an early start in the summer is needed to avoid a crowd.

Not much water with the dry winter, but still a beautiful hike.

Hiked all 10 falls with 3 children aged 1 (in backpack for most), 7 and 8. The trail was great motivation for them as they crossed off each waterfall on the map as we got to it. I would definitely recommend starting at South Falls and ending on the rim trail back down to South Falls. We stopped to eat our lunch about half way and went in for a foot cool off and plat in North Falls.
There is currently no water at Winter Falls.

For trail runners I also ran this trail alone a couple of days later again starting at South Falls. A truly amazing run.

The hike is decent and waterfalls are beautiful. can show pics of all waterfalls. Worth the effort to hike at least once.
