  • Lovely, picturesque waterfall; easy walk from Paradise. This beautiful waterfall is a 10-20 minute walk on paved walkways from the Paradise Visitor Center. Just follow the signs or ask a park ranger. Most of the walk is relatively flat, but there are a few places that will seem steep for some. A wooden bridge across the upper portion of the falls gives a picture-perfect view of Mt. Rainier with a green meadow and waterfall in the foreground.
  • We hiked up to Myrtle Falls with to kids 6 and 4 and they did just fine. It says it's a mile hike but I think it might be less. It was a perfect sized hike for our little family. I would recommend. The trail is paved so bring your stroller.
