Spirit and Moon Falls Trail

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!

Betty Lake Trail

This was an easy hike to a lovely little lake, clear water, beautiful trees and complete peace. More than worth it for a picnic by the water.

The trail has several logs across it since we took it a few years ago but is still a good hike. It is a lot of down hill that you will have to come back up to return to your car. My 7 and 11 year olds did great but it was slow going on the return.

Rebel Rock Trail

I did this one as a loop starting on trail 3323 by Rebel creek and around to 3324 by Trail creek, clockwise.

As the first reviewer notes the trail can become sparse in sections, however it was still easy enough to follow when I was there in 2012. It was a cloudy weekend when I was there but there still was much to see and explore. The trail climbs steeply in sections and can have a secluded feeling. The lookout is in bad shape and worsening.

Here is a link to a video I shot highlighting the lookout and its condition.

Fuji Mountain Trail

I completed the shorter version consisting of three miles round trip. The trail was moderate to easy with a gentle grade. The primary views were of Waldo lake, The Three Sisters and great shot of Diamond Peak. Lots of exploring to be done in this area.

Bring a map. It is east to get confused finding the trailhead on road 5883 due to the roads being poorly marked if marked at all.

Excellent views of Mt. Yoran and Diamond Peak. There are several small lakes within a short scramble.

Beautiful and picturesque. Easy hike and great picnic spot. Only draw back is the short length of the hike, if you're looking for a little exercise. Will go back.

Salt Creek Falls - Diamond Creek Falls Trail

We went to see Salt Creek Falls, which is the second highest waterfall in Oregon at 284 ft, and then found the loop trail. We missed Vivian Lake (hiking with a three year old,) but very much enjoyed the loop with some great scenic views and three waterfalls in one day! We will go again, but leave the little one at home.
