Great little hike and dog friendly. I highly recommend the 8.7 hike around all 10 waterfalls.

Trail of Ten Falls Trail

So...the info on this app is quite deceiving. To see ALL TEN WATERFALLS it's actually about 8.7 miles. Well worth the hike, but you may want to prepare for a longer trek. Fantastic hike!! Beautiful views. Some areas are extremely slippery and others muddy, so bring a pair of hiking boots! There are many areas that include steep inclines, stairs etc!! Your legs will definitely get a work out. Pack a snack or a lunch, there are tables all around the park areas, or just grab a rock along the trail, please don't leave trash, we saw quite a bit of that today! No dogs allowed on the trail of 10 waterfalls, dogs are only allowed on the south falls loop and rim trail so plan accordingly. Driving directions are accurate, with a $5 park entrance fee. we got there about 9:30am with only 10 cars in the south falls parking lot, when we let about 2:30 the lot was completely packed with people waiting for spots, so go early!!

Great place to hike. Very scenic. Definitely will be back. When I was there it rained, and got pretty miserable. Want to.go back when the weather is a little better. In any weather it's still a great place to hike.

Very beautiful, with diverse terrain. Broke a lil bit of a sweat too. The greenery and streams hold their own against the beauty of the falls. A must in the area.

AMAZING! This was one of the most beautiful things I've seen in Portland. We went when it was pretty cold (65 degrees?) so walking through armpit level ice cold water was not pleasant, BUT definitely worth the falls. I didn't have water shoes and didn't want to get my shoes wet so I walked the whole thing in socks. It was doable but definitely not enjoyable. By the end of the hike my feet were red and angry. So definitely wear water shoes or even slippers. The logs in the beginning of the trail were not too challenging as long as you go slow and watch your step. Other than the water levels and the logs this is a really easy hike. It's basically a walk in the river with the best view ever.

This trail is really so beautiful. I can't emphasize that enough. We were planning on skipping it since it was so cold, but I'm SO glad we didn't. I hope I can come back during summer time and do this again! You portlandians are lucky~

Wahkeena Falls Loop Trail

It was definitely a good hike! You get to bang out a lot of waterfalls in about 3 hours. We started in the Multnomah falls return trail to get the boring stuff out of the way. Then hiked our way to the wahkeena falls did the 5 mile loop and ended back at the multnomah falls. The first half of the hike is all incline, but the trail get easier after that. There weren't too many people until you got to the multnomah part of the hike. I don't really recommend doing the multnomah overlook path unless you want nice views of the mountain. I definitely recommend this hike and would do it again!

This hike was challenging, but well worth it! Some of the reviews make this hike seem really daunting, but as long as you're not a novice and down to get your hand dirty you'll be fine! Like other have said this hike goes up 1,600' elevation in a mile so be prepared for some steep inclines. There definitely is rock climbing to be done, but the rocks are very grippy and not too hard to climb. I personally love climbing rocks so this was a very fun and rewarding hike. The top was beautiful and had lovey views. Coming down was harder for me than going up. Be super careful and use your hands to grip yourself on rocks and branches.

The directions for this hike are kind of hard to decipher, but always choosing the path on the right going up worked for us! Of course choose the left path when going down. Don't let some of these reviews scare you and put your adventuring hats on!

This was definitely not an easy hike by any means and I am very sore but it's a good sore :)

Parts of this hike can be difficult and lots of people but the falls were well worth it!
