This is a great hike for a mixed grouping of athletic abilities. Our family has gone many times. It is challenging enough (mostly in length and the option of climbing around on the rocks at the falls) for more fit hikers - like teenagers. Yet it is well maintained and gradual enough, even on the ascent, that older or out... More

This is a very nice hike. The trail is well maintained, easy to follow. The waterfalls are very nice and it is easy to hike down to the base. This is a wonderful side trip while in Lincoln city Oregon. My whole family enjoyed it 3.5 to 4 miles.

This wasn't a bad walk in the forest and my car full of stuff didn't get broken into, so I have no complaints. I took a different road after my hike than I took to get there and it made me wonder if I was going the right way, but eventually I found civilization.

This hike is well worth the 10 mile windy forest road to get to the trail head. This hike is easy but remember it is mostly all down hill to start and up hill on the return. We look the less traveled north loop on the return, seemed a bit longer and steeper than if we would have stayed on... More

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
