yomaam12345: RelationshipGoals

Mike Ackerman: In case you ever make your way back out there, there is a offshoot trail at a clearing on your right, a little ways before that overlook of Punbowl Falls. There is a trail that leads down to the base that is a great place to pack a lunch or go swimming in the warmer months.

scruffydude1: I have hiked this hike probably no less than 20 times and it is truly my favorite hike and you stayed at 71/2 mile camp awesome tunnel falls, high bridge  isn't tunnel falls cool? pretty narrow after the falls huh  and no it isn't a natural tunnel I live about 40 minutes from here

scruffydude1: Jerry EastmanI couldn't agree more it is a beautiful hike to the falls

Donna D: ramona falls!!!

MrBook: Man, this is like the perfect hiking video. The focus is on the beautiful scenery, but with enough of the hikers shown to draw you in, the narration is engaging and charming but not constant, and no music outside of intros and endings, just beautiful natural sounds. It's so simple, but so many people get it wrong. Very well done, and you guys are just super-likable. Thanks for putting this up. This kind of thing really hits the spot when I'm not able to get out in nature myself but still feeling the draw.

Andy Timinsky: Thanks for watching! I hope it motivates people to get out more. \n\nAndy

David Steinke: it's spaghetti with meat sauce! "I don't want that" Andy:"oh we don't want that"

I know you are, but what am I: There is plentiful trout above the falls, if you fly fish.

WWExploring 1984: Excellent work Andy, Thanks for sharing!

Andy Timinsky: +WWExploring 1984 Thanks for watching!

1AmericanInAsia: Have you given any thought to fly fishing during your trips? I'm sure the fish would taste great out of that river.

matanuska high: there are salmon in the lower first quarter mile at the hatchery of eagle river but i doubt anything is above any of the falls.. oneanta gorge has fish all the way to the falls..just small cutthroat trout though..10 inches would be a big one..i used to fish this area a whole lot

Roni F.: Great video!!!! plan to make a trip down to Oregon just to do this hike!!!!! Thanks for sharing

Andy Timinsky: +Roni F. Have fun, it's such a great trail! \n\n-Andy

Shadow: gawwd  where's  the Hand rails on some of  these trails??

matanuska high: there used to be a cable along the ciff to via ferrata if you wanted with safety..mostly only people with children use it..i didnt see any of it in this video though and i havent hiked this trail since 2003

matanuska high: +matanuska high i lied at 12:45 i see the cable..

Daniel Zunarelli: amazing place! greetings from Brazil

Jeffrey Johnson: Those trails looked scary narrow.  wouldn't want to stumble
