Beautiful hike that parallels the Clackamas River. Even though it's next to the highway I still enjoyed the peace and the amazing foliage and river sights. Some old growth you pass through as well. Very rocky so keep that in mind. There were hardly any people we passed when we went so it made it feel more isolated. And then... there's the waterfall! What a magnificent sight to behold! It's worth the hike to view it alone. Pictures don't do it justice.
P.S. Watch out for salamanders on the river-level portions of the hike. Wouldn't want to squish them!
