After you drive about a half hour from the coast 101 you arrive at the trail head. Drive slow after you get on the one lane road as there is other drivers on the road as well. The trail is easy but a bit muddy when the rain hits of course. A good little hike to a nice waterfall as... More

This trail is right outside of Lincoln City on the Oregon Coast. It is a great trail for family and anyone who wants an easy hike. There is a 240 ft. suspension bridge, which overlooks Drift Creek Falls. I highly suggest hiking down to the falls (stay to the right at North Loop) then take the North Loop trail on... More

We found this hike on a pamphlet in our hotel. So glad we did. Perfect short hike outside of Lincoln city. Really easy, warmed up on the hike back up but not difficult at all. Beautiful waterfall and we loved the large suspended bridge.

While it was a bit wet and surprisingly crowded (in the parking lot), this is a very good trail. Approx 3 miles round trip and the fact this has a suspension bridge sets it apart from other falls. The water was rushing more than expected...so I was pretty impressed and my dog liked it too

The hike in was beautiful. Very cool suspension bridge and wild falls. The 10+ mile drive in on twisting one lane road was a bit nerve racking, not sure we'd go again.

Took this hike during a powerful autumn storm on 25 October 14. Tree tops were swaying 30' or more to and fro! Rain pouring down at times! The hike is VERY easy....slightly downhill going to the swinging bridge and just the reverse coming back up. Less than 3 miles round trip. $5 parking fee with drop box and forms at... More

Our family (including young children and teens) finally took the time to hike the Drift Creek Falls Trail. The drive out seemed to take forever as you meander your way to the trailhead. But, it was through the beautiful forest, so we didn't mind. The maintained trail provided an easy walk down to the falls. As we neared the end... More

The trail is a down hill switch back. The dry summer probably made the water flow reduced. A good walk. Suspension bridge is cool.

The road just to get to the trailhead isn't the best. Even though it is paved, it is very narrow and windy - 10 miles of it. Log trucks are also on it!! The trail isn't bad walking. The trailhead sign says it is 1.5 miles, but we all thought it was actually longer than that. The swinging bridge over... More

My husband and myself did this hike. The trail the falls was beautiful , the suspension bridge so so much fun and exciting. We took our dogs with us (on leash of course) and they enjoyed it also. The hike is pretty level and only about 3 miles round trip. The drive getting to trail head a bit of a... More
