  • We were having a hard time trying to find the road to these falls. We asked a local in Bend who gave us great directions. The road turns more to a dirt road as you get closer and we saw some deer alon...  more »
  • My husband and I hiked (didn't need snow shoes that day) to the falls. Lots of families on the trail and what a photo op. at the falls! 
  • Snowshoe/hiked in 2.5 miles on the road into the falls since road was closed. Totally worth the hike and though we took snowshoes, we were easily able to do the hike staying on the road in our winter ...  more »

  • Such a fun day with my buddies... You can just for a little bit or a lot. from my car to the fall it was about a 10-minute hike but we went a lot farther than that I'd recommend you do too.
  • Gorgeous falls! And super easy to get a good view, don't have to go very far at all to see the falls, in case you didn't want to hike, which is also an option.
  • A great place to visit. A bit crowded at the Falls but the hike to the upper falls is GREAT. Not a lot of elevation and would rate the hike easy as the trails are well maintained and traveled, many spots to stop and let the dog or kids splash in the creek water AND beautiful waterfalls. Very pet and kid friendly!!!
  • Beautiful falls and hike. Stay away from the outhouses though, they're absolutely rancid.
  • Although you have to drive down a gravel road, there is a parking area at the end of the road. You can see the falls from the parking too. Beautiful falls for such an easy hike.
