We took this hike on a summer afternoon after the smoke from the forest fires moved in to Crater Lake making views of the lake impossible. This was a good way to spend a smoky afternoon. The trail is easy, and kids can do it...More

we actually saw a handicapped man working his magic on this trail. Such a beautiful waterfall and several kinds of wild flowers.

We aren't really hikers but wanted to see these falls and heard there were wildflowers. It's a nice walk until last several hundred feet and then it's a climb. But the falls and waterfalls were spectacular. And there were small blue butterflies everywhere. It was...More

This was an easy and lovely hike/walk. Bring mosquito repellent. The big treat at the end of the hike (in July) was several hundreds of newly hatched butterflies on the path where it was wet.

A very easy hike of around 20 minutes to see these delightful falls. They are not the biggest you will ever see but they are gorgeous to sit by on a hot day. An easy hike for families

Nice hike out to a waterfall. Pretty trees. You will have fun on this hike. It's not that hard. We saw a lot of people while hiking it.

The trail is well marked and maintained. It's about a mile to the falls, so it's not an all day event. The falls are very pretty. There were wildflowers blooming.
