Very nice quick hike. The lower falls are a treat to the eyes once you complete the hike. Definitely strenuous for those who do not hike frequently. All in all a must visit after a good rain. The views do not disappoint.

It’s a kid friendly hiking trail.

That was lovely!

Eh. Can't get near the waterfall but it's fun to see.

Definitely a touristy destination. We parked at the bottom and walked to the top as suggested, very nice.

Popular trail for all ages! Bring your camera and expect crowds/tourist.

@mathew Bostick- how do you know they’re not locals? You’d have to go everyday to that tourist attraction to decide wether or not they’re tourist. Are you from that trail? Born and raised on that trail?

kids loved it :)

Nice walk, small workout going back uphill. Had a picnic lunch on the rocks down at the river. Very nice.

Full of tourists.

⬇️⬆️ straight down, then straight up. Sore legs tomorrow!

It was a nice view but just very crowded... Very.

Quite busy but good views.

The hike down to the river is as impressive as the falls itself, just kidding dummy the falls are so impressive.
Bring a couple different pairs of sun glasses to experience the cool secret optic fall attraction that happens. My glasses have a blueish hue while my girlfriends gave off an amber colored effect- she asked if I wanted to try hers but I said “no” because my male masculinity is very fragile.
I wanted to go over the falls in a barrel but we got there too late and I didn’t see the line for it and figured they must have ran out, next time we will skip picking up a friend from the airport and just go straight to the falls.
Oh and the hike up from the river to the top- if you have any bratty kids or old people in your life take them there just for that- they’ll hate every second of it and you’ll feel good knowing that somebody that deserves great discomfort is receiving great discomfort.

Busy path that was paved and pretty structured, but leads to gorgeous falls.

Loved the informational plaques. The Falls were gorgeous! The trail was heavily trafficked and there were many signs of rule breakers along the sides of the lower river bed.

Did this hike today and was not disappointed. It’s as described; lightly trafficked. In fact, I didn’t come across one soul! Lots of trees, large boulders and moss; don’t expect any grand vistas, just cool woods. It would be a good add on for an experienced hiker, especially if they wanted to trail-run the un-rocky spots.

It was a nice hike but harder than expected. My friend who is new to hiking “suffered” quite a bit. Nice view at the end. All in all good, but would not do the same hike again.

Steep, but not prohibitively strenuous. There's a bunch of rocks at the bottom you can walk on near the bottom of the falls. Well worth the couple of hours spent here.

Easy out and back. Great views of the river and from below the falls.

Its an easy-to-moderately difficult trail but not too long !AT 1st Review on All Trails: 3.5miles, so even the non-hiker can complete it. Just take your time. No viewpoints except at the very top of the climb where you can see views of rattlesnake lake and also looking north you can see Mount Si and the middle fork of the Snoqualmie River. Still - close by, worth a shot to give you some new views.

Nice little hike taken many times over the years! It is steep going down and coming back up with loose rocks! Proper footwear and water needed. There is a second parking area at the bottom if you are not up to the hike and a wonderful view from the top parking lot that is ADA/Stroller accessible!

I am not sure why this trail is rated easy. it is not. it is straight down, steep. not safe for strollers or people with any bone or muscle troubles. there are 2 places on this entire trail that is flat. it is a steep decline and, turning right back around a steep incline. not safe for people wearing sandals either. 100% gravel and mud. several places to stop to sit. take a break. take water!

Nice day to see the waterfalls! Beautiful...smoke cleared up. Upper section good for grandparents. Lower section with the best view is good for small children. Steep in some areas. Recommend coming early if you want to beat the crowds and the traffic.

Got in early and it wasn't too crowded for a Saturday. Gorgeous falls with good chances for nice photos. Friendly hikers. Easy trail down, not too tough back up but I did sweat.

If you want to hop off your tour bus and see some easy waterfalls then you will enjoy. if you want to hike to the bottom of the falls and escape the tour buses then you will not enjoy. The hike to the bottom is just a viewing platform, you are not able to get very close to the water unfortunately.

Lots of parking and people.

Amazingly not much crowd at 5 pm today ... wonderful trail !!

Lovely hike--tough finding the trail to the Butte as it is just near the Boxely Creek bridge and rather narrow but the best part is that it is in the forest and there was no one on it once we got off the gravel road. The view is not as nice as Rattlesnake but it was worth it to skip the crowds.

The falls are beautiful.

But this used to be a place you could sit by the water at the end of the trail and have a picnic. now they have it all caged off.
