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

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.
