This short trail is one of our favorites. Spirit Falls is a short walk/hike and kid friendly! We take our 8, 4, and 1 year old boys. Plus when you get to the bottom you can play in the little pools! We saw frogs, fish, and crawdads.

did this hike two days ago and did the 6 mile version to one peak which is not listed. we met some snow drifts pretty soon but after crossing the PCT we were entirely on snow. Wasn't as bad as we expected to climb, trees are clearly marked for snow sports. the top was very steep with loose lava. views to the south of maiden peak, diamond peak and mt. thielsen. Due to snow bank at the top we didn't attempt bushwacking around the peak. Bring bug repellant until august as Waldo lake mosquitos are abundant!

Moon Falls: Great hike!! I wouldn't give it 5 stars as a hike with kids. Most of it is great, but there is a small portion with a steep drop on one side, a bit rocky of a path as well. Perhaps great for older kids, mine are young and it was a little scary for them. The distance was good for the kids and my in laws. Parking could be tricky.

Great hike to do with kids, well kept trail and a beautiful destination. We only visited Spirit Falls this time, but it was beautiful. I'm looking forward to going back.

Get a good forest road map...I missed the hike by prob 1/2 a mile the first time there. When I went back I was happy I did. Hike was relatively easy and short and uncrowded. Was a clear day and the views amazing!!! Could see Mt Hood all the way down to Mt Thielsen. Practically could reach out and touch Diamon Peak and great views of Waldo Lake and other lakes and such. Wonderful place to just sit in awe of what beauty we have here!

A nice short hike to a beautiful waterfall. The trail is downhill to the waterfall but not too steep. The kids will love this one. Moon Falls and Pinard Falls are not far away so try to see all three.

Of the three waterfall hikes in the area: Moon Falls, Spirit Falls and Pinard Falls, This one is the easiest. The trail is fairly level and well maintained. A great hike for the kids. Note my track as the trailhead is off the main road 0.3 miles, but well marked once you get there.

We loved Spirit Falls! It was so lovely and lush. The hike (really a walk) only took about 7 minutes from the road. We never found Moon Falls though! We turned at the road where the sign points you to Moon Falls and drove about 5 miles and reached another sign that pointed us back down the way we came. We paid better attention to all the little side trails but never saw a sign. Still worth it though!
