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.

It was super beautiful and easy hike with my mom (none hiker) and 2.5year old but the end was totally not easy: A scramble and slippery it was short but had no rope or rail to get up and down. This could be because the river level was a bit higher than most of these photos portrayed. The falls and trail are stunning though.

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.
