It's a drive to get there!

We must have gone the same route as Len P as the ride was long and winding to get there. We didn't pass but 5 or 6 cars as it was late in the afternoon on a rainy rainy day. We... read more

We visited the Oregon coast a few weeks ago and nearly avoided doing this due to another individuals comment about the dangers on the drive up...I have to literally laugh out loud at this the drive was completely paved plenty of room to pass a car. The trail was so neatly groomed I laughed at calling it a moderate hike... More

We had always wanted to hike the trail and woke up to smoke in the valley so decided last Saturday was the day to do the hike. We really impressed how well the trail was maintained and the beauty along the trail. We forgot there was smoke any where and that there was a drought out side the trail as... More

This trail is a moderate, very well kept path, some roots and it does ascend/descend a bit. I have breathing issues, just took my time and took breaks. Much to see, and you are rewarded with a suspension bridge overlooking falls! Cross the bridge to a wooded area and some fallen logs make a good resting place and a chance... More

The trail/hike/suspension bridge down to the Falls is ok, the hike one way is about 1.5 miles, no problem going down to the Fakks, had to take a few rest stops going back up to the parking lot. The trail is fairly well maintained, but has many roots sticking up, very easy to trip on, so watch your kids very... More

This was a very nice walk in the woods and the falls were very pretty. The trail is well maintained although I'd hesitate to take small children as there is a sheer drop-off in many places along the path. A child could easily fall. There was one bench along the trail to stop to take a rest at about the... More

Fun hike, easy down to falls, moderate return through verdant, fern filled forest. Relatively easy, with rock scrambling at the end where the falls is. Suspension bridge (swinging) was fun for old and young.

The Drift Creek Falls and Trail is a great park and trail. The trail head has good parking and maps of the trail. The trail is good with nice rest areas along the way. It is about 2.5 to 3.0 miles long but an easy to walk. To cable bridge is something to cross and the falls are nice to... More

Having visited a number of waterfalls in Oregon, we were impressed with this one. The trail is easy to walk (although you have to watch out for tree roots) and is well kept, but be ready to walk about 3 miles round-trip. Good signage throughout. The waterfall itself is not the largest or highest, but does put on a nice... More

Total distance is 2.5 to 3 miles depending on which route you take. This trail is well maintained and pet and child friendly. Be sure to attend to them though. There are some really perilous drops. The trail is downhill almost entirely and uphill on the way back. I did not mind this because we are hikers, but if you... More
