About this Hike 

The trail passes through an old-growth stand of Douglas-fir, Western red cedar, big leaf maple, and Pacific yew. The North Umpqua Wild and Scenic River is visible at several points, cascading through a narrow rock gorge. A bench is located about halfway along the 0.4-mile trail, which includes nearly 200 steps. The trail ends at a sturdy viewing platform overlooking a two-tiered falls; the upper descent drops 40 feet, and the lower falls plunges 80 feet over a sheer wall of basalt.
