Note: The trail is so well marked, just follow the diamond markers. Middle mashel falls is the main attraction, so if you're short on time skip the upper falls.

I don't recommend the upper falls trail, at least now the off season. Very muddy and slippery, very thin trail at points. Not maintained and a slip could earn you a good fall into a strong current. Lower falls on the other hand is definitely worth going to! Be ready to get feet dirty but the trail is relatively well maintained for January.

Great mostly easy hike. Loved the falls! A few muddy areas but overall well maintained.

Hiked on Christmas day, saw all three falls, but the middle falls was the best. all were flowing pretty good due to the heavy rains we have had. some mud on the trail, but nothing too bad. beautiful hike, easy to do with dogs or kids.

Very well marked and maintained trail down to the river. Family friendly, I used a jogging stroller no problem. Would not recommend taking kids up the second part of the trail to the upper falls.

Nice walk. The falls were pretty cool. Nice easy trail down to the falls, the rest was just a gravel road .

I’ve done this hike many times with my kids but never reviewed coming in from either side so last week on 9/11, I took myself, two coworkers and we had a 3 & a 4 year old in tow also. Coming in from this side via Eatonville, you start out for about a mile or two walk along a pretty gravel side road that’s has a few bridges and views of Mashel River. It feels like you are in someone’s back yard for a brief second along this spot but then you take a left onto a small forest trail. At this point you reach your elevation which was a little steep at spots but our littles did it just fine on their own. We chose to go to middle/lower falls and the littles also did great. This is a pretty steep but short slope down to the falls but then there are spots to sit and relax. Wonderful views. I’ve done this many times solo and feel safe on this trail as I grew up in eatonville area. Great time of year before trails get too muddy but when falls are flowing fast in late fall, it’s gorgeous as well and just wear boots.

I did this as my first ever solo hike. It was a Sunday afternoon and pouring rain and didn’t see a soul insight for hours. Only saw 5 people on my way back to my car. It was so beautiful and peaceful. The middle falls were gorgeous. Some steep parts when you get closer to the falls but manageable. Will do again.

Beautiful hike that is easy enough for a family but offers three great waterfalls. My friend and I got to the trailhead at about 10 am, and we only saw one other person in the first hour. Get there early, we went to the lower falls first and after we went to the others we saw 20 people hiking in or at the falls. The first 1.5 mile or so is on a wide gravel path near the road and a couple houses, it’s more of a walk than a hike. You then turn onto an actual hiking path towards all three falls. Lower Falls: It’s a steep hike down, but definitely worth it. Not too difficult but gets you breathing hard on the way back up to the main trail. The falls are really beautiful. Middle Falls: The easiest one to get to, slight downhill down to the falls, a little steep at the end. Beautiful, I tried to go behind the falls but I slipped and fell, so a warning for those a little more adventurous than me. Upper Falls: This part of the trail is not maintained, so it is a little overgrown and there are no markers, making it hard to know where to go. My friend and I followed a trail above the river to the falls, and then walked along/in the river until we got back to the trail, I wouldn’t recommend that though. The falls were a little underwhelming considering the effort we put in to get there and the fact that it was smaller than the other two, but still pretty. I’d suggest doing that first or not at all.

really fun and beautiful. Tons of people, but not too bad. I didn't go all the way to the upper falls, but I'm going to try that, next time without my 2 year old. :)

Little Mashel Falls are less impressive than some other falls of Washington state. Flow of water was not too much. Probably because it is peak summer. But hike is pretty easy, that's why it is still popular. Kids can do this hike easily too. From Bud Blanchard trailhead parking, you walk about 2 miles pretty flat on gravel with wide pathway. It almost feels like walking on a gravel road. I think one might be able to park at Smallwood Park to shave off about 0.5miles from this hike. The trail is well marked with small white signs showing directions. Once gravel part is done, trail turns towards right with tons of shade and uphill climb for about a mile. Then there is a sign for lower falls on the left. Lower falls r nice with Tom's of shade, place to sit and enjoy the falls and a tiny pool. Our dog had a great time in the lower falls pool. Back on the main trail (by the way, lower falls go way down and hence coming back to trail is all uphill tough), you barely walk when you see another side cut with a little white sign that says hike. I would say this is almost easy to miss because it doesn't say middle falls, but this path downwards does go to miffle large falls. One there it's pretty rocky, pool not as big as lower falls but falls are pretty.. you can even go behind middle falls, my husband did. I tried but slipped twice even though I thought I had good hiking shoes. We didn't go to upper falls view.

Well marked trail. The trail from the gravel trail marked Little Mashel Falls does get narrow in some spots but easy to get through. On the way back, saw lots of people going to swim and cool off from the 80° heat.

Great trail to hike! A little steep and slippery near the falls, but overall the trail is gravel and dirt. There are some narrow parts closer to the falls as well. I went to the lower fall with this trip. Dogs are allowed on leash, but watch out for the large rocks on the sides and middle of the trail, people seem to pile the dog poop on them...

Awesome easy hike with enough elevation to get your heart pumping. First 1.4 miles is on an easy gravel trail. Do not follow alltrails map, as it will take you on a steep trail that is marked "old trail, do not use." The trail is so well marked, just follow the diamond markers. Middle mashel falls is the main attraction, so if you're short on time skip the upper falls. Not muddy at all. Very few people there, though it was on a weekday.

Loved this trail! Super easy to follow from the Bud Blancher trail. The trail is mostly dry and well maintained, its not until you get closer to reaching the water falls that the path gets a little muddy but nothing too serious. Seems like some work has been done on the path actually going to the falls so they were really easy to access. I will say please be careful on the rocks near the falls because they are EXTREMELY slippery. I watched several people hit the ground including my own daughter.

Trial is mostly dry, no standing water, just a few muddy spots is all.
