A short and family-friendly hike to a nice waterfall. The trail starts near the entrance to the visitor center parking area. Be sure to climb down from the deck for a closeup view of the falls.

Short hike to an interpretive Rock Garden which is wheelchair accessible and further hike to the Upper Cascade Falls which are impressive. Park at far left end of VC parking lot for easiest access and take the trail across the street. Nice decking for a picnic at the falls.
