  • Comet Falls is the most breath taking waterfall and hike I have ever hiked so far. The trail was so beautiful from the parking lot to comet Falls, then all the way up to Mildred Point. Never seen such a beautiful mountain with all the wild flowers and trees galore. Of coarse the icing on the cake is the famous Rainier!!
  • I did a LOT of hikes growing up in the area. This is my #1. I once saw a full circle rainbow amidst the mist from the falls hitting the rocks.
