“Spectacular”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012 via mobile

Hike to the falls was equally gorgeous. You hike into a densely wooded area to reach the falls. Really pretty.

“Sheer, natural beauty abounds.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2012

We saw the Lower Falls including an interesting 1 1/2 mile walk through lava debris and a dramatic, photogenic forest. Be camera ready, pay the $5 on your honor fee at the trailhead and enjoy the wonder of Central Oregon. We missed the sign for the Upper Falls, our bad, but no doubt we will return soon. What we did see was worth the walk and the trip out here in itself. Access is through the McKenzie Pass which is normally closed until late June due to snow.

“Gorgeous view easy hike”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2012

Absolutely gorgeous falls, be sure to check out the upper and lower falls. The trail is an easy hike, although not made for strollers, walkers, or the like. Well worth your time.
