From Seattle, E on I-90 to exit 47. Left off the freeway. Right at T in road for .4 miles. Left on FSR 58 for 2.5 miles to FSR 5830. Turn left and park before bridge, trailhead is just before bridge on the right.

Short, easy trail. Well maintained. Started about 9 on a Sunday and almost had the trail to ourselves on the way to the falls - met many hikers on our way back though.

Gorgeous hike. It was a gradual climb but the kids and dogs did great. The only downside was that it was pretty busy even thou we went early on a Sunday morning

You can walk right up to the bottom of the waterfall. The hike is super easy. We did it after doing snow lake with no problem.

As with all trails in this area get there early. Took us an hour to get to the rim to head down to the lake. Lots of rocks. When you get to the rim if you go left before going down to the lake there is a huge rock you can get a nice view from. Beautiful.

Easy hike with 3 kids. Took us around 35 minutes there and 30 minutes back. Went on a Friday mid day. There was lots of parking and there were not many there at the falls. The kids loved playing in the water.

Super easy and beautiful. Once we got to the falls we climbed down in to them to play and cool down!
