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.

Short, easy hike through a fern-laden, shady area. Great for a hot day escape. We took the main trail down to the bridge and falls and returned on the North Loop trail, which adds an extra mile and more elevation gain. But there are some nice old growth Doug Firs on this route. We went on a weekday but the... More

I'm not much on hiking, but this i could do. It was nice, trails are nice. I have a huge fear of heights, but the bridge was a breeze. And the waterfall is absolutely beautiful!

My husband and I are campers and backpackers but my parents are not. The loved this trail. They are from the east coast, have never been to the Pacific Northwest and I think this trail showed them some old growth, they loved the waterfall and the suspension bridge. It was just long enough but not too long. Plan on it... More

Definitely go on this hike. Not very tough, fantastic view at the end. For starters, take the road in from the south side of Lincoln City. It is about 2 miles in. Then it turns into a 1 lane road up the mountain. Seems sketchy at first but it is paved the whole way and really a pretty drive. There... More

This is a great hike and the kids had a wonderful time there! The purpose of my review is to warn people that Waze will take the LONG way but, more importantly, a possibly dangerous route. I think approaching from the south side of Lincoln City is the best way in and most, if not all, of the road in... More

It's about a three mile round trip. It's mostly downhill on the way there and mostly uphill on the way back, but not an extremely steep grade. The road to it is one lane in most spots. There are pull outs and if like us, you'll only meet a couple of cars anyway. The falls are worth the trip. After... More
