We headed to Randle and checked in at the Randle Ranger Station. The ranger suggested the Angel Falls trail, which begins at the Cispus Learning Center, 10-15 miles outside of Randle.

The map we received at the Ranger Station was rudimentary at best, with no mileage markers or clues as to elevation gain, etc. However, it turned out to be a spectacular hike. This loop trail, which we did counterclockwise, leads hikers behind Angel Falls and then up some steep switchbacks. The loop eventually circumnavigates the enormous rocky knob from which the falls originate. We wished we knew more about geology as this is truly a geologists dream. The many caves and enormity of the cliffs are fascinating. The forest seems primeval, with visions of dragons coming to mind. It seems as though every turn in the trail leads to another natural wonder!

We estimated that the entire hike was around 5 miles, with the difficulty factor being moderate. The trail is steep and narrow in places and slippery behind the falls. There were quite a few blown down trees to climb over but were not a problem. We highly recommend this hike and were actually grateful that it was a cloudy day or we might never have discovered it!

Park outside the Cispus Learning center and the Angel Falls Loop starts at the side of the Cispus Braille Trail.
