Well-maintained trail through a young, replanted forest with lush undergrowth. A favorite of families w/kids & dogs, so do expect to have some company. The end of the trail brings you to a sturdy suspension bridge with a great view of the falls and of the creek below. After crossing the bridge there's not much left of the trail and... More

This is an easy 3 Mile round trip hike to a 75 foot horsetail waterfall. The trail is wide and easy to walk on, making it great for children and all ages. You cross a 240 foot suspension bridge that is 100 feet over the creek to see the falls. The suspension bridge is very stable and even though I... More

This Review is for Drift Creek Day Hike - Hwy101/Drift Creek Road/Drift Creek Camp Road. Despite the nearly 11 miles of on a windy paved road, the drive was beautiful and the easy day hike was well worth it. The road was lined with gorgeous Douglas Fir trees that could be seen for miles. There is a $5 fee so... More

I have taken my 6 year old and my 8 year old on this hike. The falls are beautiful and at the end of the trail there is a nice place to picinic as long as the weather holds out. The bridge that spans the canyon is a great place to take pics of the waterfall.

Wonderful day hike. Our family loves going here. Only small fee to pay to park. Only downside is no restroom except at parking lot. Really neat suspension bridge at bottom.

This was an amazing gentle hike out to the Drift creek falls and the hanging bridge. Huge trees line a well kept trail out the falls. There are trails all the way down to the bottom of the creek if you wish to see the Waterfall from the bottom as we did! You do need to pay a National park... More

I recommend wholeheartedly for people of any age. The hike, in my opinion, is breathtaking! It's probably the best part of the hike. The suspension bridge is great and the falls beautiful, but the hike takes the cake. The road to the hike can seem like it takes forever due to its windings, but it's worth it!

Just before the falls you come to a suspension bridge that is 240 ft. long and 100 ft. above the falls. The... More
