  • This was a very nice, easy going trail with a beautiful waterfall at the end to cool off at and take some great photos! Trail was also very well kept.  more »
  • Highly rated! As good as it gets for Northwest forest / waterfall hikes. Short hike, trail well maintained, a big creek flowing on the left, which you can easily access near the bottom of the trail...  more »
  • I was 8 months pregnant and able to do this hike. It was beautiful and easy. I suggest to everyone.
  • Very easy hike with a impeccably maintained trail. A bunch of small kids had no issues doing the hike. Ends with a scenic waterfall.
