This hike was well worth the drive! The hike is in a heavily forested area and is not too much of an incline, but beware that there is more incline on way out than on the way in, but not really that difficult. The hiker is rewarded with a stunning view of waterfalls at the end of the hike, next... More

A scenic hike to a waterfall that has a suspension bridge going over the creek. Nice hike through the forest, and then arrive at a suspension bridge. As you cross the bridge and look back the way you came, there is a great view of Drift Creek Falls. If you continue past the bridge, you will go down to the... More

If you are familiar with Multnomah Falls and other Gorge hikes this is very similar (the drive to the trailhead included). I made the wet and muddy hike in tennis shoes but boots would have been ideal. Mild hike that kids would be able to tackle and enjoy. The suspension bridge gives you a great view of the falls.

You hike down along the trail through moss-covered trees and lovely lush green forest until the bridge across the creek. The falls is pretty, and the hike back up not too hard.

A small group of us ventured through the lush forest to the falls, my 3 year old grandson was among us. He made the entire trip unaided....amazing little guy....well worth the journey....the last bridge at the falls was pretty cool and the falls were awesome...

What a great day to spend the day! Hard to find, but well worth the effort. The trail head is nine or ten miles up Drift Creek Rd. off Hwy 101 approaching Depoe Bay. All maps say near the golf course, but that aint so! It's a good two miles north of the golf course (nearer the cut off hwy... More

So pretty and not too hard! Very windy road to get there and good facilities! Trail is easy to walk, with some elevation coming back from the falls. Very worth the time!

This was a perfect easy hike for my husband and I. I have a knee injury so am limited to minimal grade on hikes and this one was just fine. The hike wanders through the forested areas and arrives at a suspension bridge (solid and well maintained). Once across the suspension bridge you get a great view looking back at... More

This is a great hike. It is not easy. The path is well mark and maintained but is steep. It is not easy to find but ti is well worth it. The suspension bridge is amazing and the waterfall is beautiful.

The trail was super easy to hike. The suspension bridge was awesome and it really does move if you make it. Enormous trees everywhere and the waterfall was a great end to the trail. Must do if you are in town.
