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.

This was lovely. The views were amazing. Fun to do with the kids. Would do it again!!

It was a very nice but there were no signs or warnings of the difficulty of hike. The way down was fine but the incline coming back up was horrible. If you’re not in shape or don’t have water with you I wouldn’t hike down. You can see the waterfall without doing the hike down.

Easy to navigate trail, extremely crowded on the weekends so if you’re not up to that then I suggest going on a weekday. The trail down to the water isn’t bad, but going back up may elevate your heart rate a bit! The water is beautiful and my boyfriend went swimming in there. Lots of people brought rafts or tubes.

Easy trail to beautiful waterfalls. We did the bottom trail only and it was easy. We spent time walking across some rocks in the river as well.

Nice and quick! Bring water shoes so you can comfortably walk in the river.

Easy trail, though steep in spots. Well maintained, smooth trail. Split to explore river - can wade and climb on rocks.

The trails was clean and well maintained and the hike to and from was good for all ages. The trails were clearly marked and access to the river was very easy. You can also drive all the way down to the river access for those that did not want to hike. The view of the waterfall was astonishing.

Great, easy hike with an awesome view of the falls from below. If you don’t feel like hiking the view is just as great (if not better) from the viewpoints at the top.

Beautiful waterfall and the river is really nice to hang out by after hiking. If you have a baby I definitely recommend baby carrying, the trail is too rocky and steep for a stroller. The hills walking back are steep and a little difficult but it’s a great walk.

Easy hike, short with many families. I took Nook Trail off Bus Trail. Nook Trail is more difficult and has a climb. Not for children or beginners. There’s not much to see at the top but it’s a good training trail for my hike later this Summer in Lolo Lolo National Forest in Montana.

Massive waterfall, excellent views from several lookout points. Rest on rocks at base of falls trail on the river’s edge. Steep incline trek to the top. Saw all ages and skill type hiking. Dogs welcome, but be sure to bring them plenty of water! Clean restrooms located at both trailheads. Very busy, but people were courteous in sharing viewpoint spaces.

The falls are spectacular. We parked across the street and walked across the bridge to view the falls from the top. It’s pretty crowded but this is a wonder of nature that you must see. We hiked to the bottom and the view is so much better. There are two flat level sections on the hike as the trail crosses the power lines. But the rest of the trail is very steep. I recommend doing it in reverse. Park at the lower section and hike up to see the upper view while your legs are still fresh. Then hike to the lower level and spend the rest of your time on the river. Pack a lunch and eat it by the river! Don’t miss the separate lower section to view the falls on the boardwalk too. We did not visit the visitor center.

Nice and private! Be sure to go in a clear day, I missed out on the view.

Beautiful view a must see the trail was great to do.

Okay hike, trail overgrown a bit. View from top also taken over by trees.

Absolutely beautiful trail! You see the best views at the top but it’s also a nice hike down to the bottom. Pretty steep coming back up but totally manageable! Only takes about 10 minutes! Get there early or it will be very crowded!!

Wonderful views of the waterfall, wish we could get closer at the bottom. Went on a Friday, still busy, but got plenty of open area for good views. Our kids 7,4 complained about the hike back up.

Don’t try to go on a sunny day. You’ll have to fight to the death for a parking spot.

Beautiful, majestic, powerful and breathtaking are just a few words that come to mind when I first viewed this waterfall. The trail is fairly easy trail, I recommend doing it in reverse though. Drive down to the bottom and walk up to the top. It will be a way easier walk back to the car because it will be downhill. This is the number one waterfall I take all my family to when they come out to visit. If you want to skip the hike then park at the top and walk across the bridge; you can view the falls that way too. The bottom view is so much better and you can sit along the rocks down stream; yes it sucks we can’t get closer but it’s for our safely, for sure.

This is a VERY steep hike but worth it for the views. There are a few “pull off” spots where you can catch your breath and sit down if need be.
The views are phenomenal and nice spot to eat a snack.

Way too many tourists. Way too crowded. can't get close enough to the falls. Not worth the time or effort.

Beautiful falls; a better view at the upper falls than the lower viewing point. Plant types are marked along the way.

The scenery was gorgeous going up!! There’s spots where the trail is quite overgrown and although it’s a shorter hike, it was definitely not easy. I’d say whoever labeled it has not hiked it before. There were some gnarly steep spots. But the view at the top was great since I went on a hot, sunny day!
