The trail is wide and well groomed. Gradient is easy. Unimpressive falls. Forest Service classifies usage as "light". That was not my experience. I was seldom out of earshot of noisy day trippers, even on the North Loop. There was a queue at the toilet.

This is great trail for big groups, kids, and experienced hikers alike. The trail is wide and easy to navigate. The highlight of the trail is the large "swinging" bridge at the end of the hike. The is a large, very sturdy bridge that takes hikers over the falls. You can then hike down to the falls (and 5-10 minute... More

Just a short mile and half on an easy trail to find this gorgeous falls and suspension bridge. Trail is designed as family friendly and dogs are also allowed on a lease, although we met a couple of dogs who scared us come out of nowhere. Some people cannot read! The walk is well worth it, however don't wait too... More

What a magical hike! We were blessed not only to experience the hike, the waterfall, and beautiful bridge....but an owl! Seeing wildlife is always incredible!!! This road was a little windy from Lincoln City, but totally worth it!! Make sure you have the exact change, $5 for the park permit!

Let me start off by saying my husband and I are not hikers... and not in the best of shape either... We LOVED this hike! The bridge is AMAZING! We planned this hike for an activity to do at the coast for our anniversary and already have a trip planned for us to take our kids (the four legged one... More

We headed to the coast to cool off from the summer heat and this spot was great for it. Accessing the trailhead is down a winding mostly paved narrow road or a winding less narrow fully paved road. The forest service road has a short unpaved stretch and is one lane with frequent pull off areas to let others pass,... More

Family friendly and a nice wide trail to Oregon's largest suspension bridge although on the way back we veered off on the North Trail, an actual "hiking" trail that runs back into the main trail. Lush ferns and humidity but serene and quiet on this trail. The waterfall and bridge were amazing. The trail is easy, a little over 3... More

wonderful hike to falls. Approx 3 miles round trip. Relaxing and fairly easy. We had our dog w/us, he loved being able to walk after long rides in pick-up.

We spent a few hours hiking down to the Drift Creek Falls. The trail to the falls is mostly downhill, which makes the trip back, mostly uphill. It is a moderate trail and is well marked. Well worth the effort for the great views of the falls and a walk across a suspension bridge.
