Awesome place to visit. The moss is literally covering almost all you see and the dense colors of green are incredible! Highly recommend visiting

It was quite muddy today but well worth the sweat. The view at the top was very rewarding!

St Patricks day hike. 35 degrees at the trail head. Areas of water over trail but easily passable. Still a little snow at the top. More elevation gain than expected, trail overall in good shape. Over, under and around a few logs. Happy I brought poles.

It was busy but enough space to spread out on the top, pretty views and well shaded for the hike.

It’s been snowing all week and the full hike (from beginning of Denny Creek rd) was just beautiful. The falls were half way frozen and it was great to experience. I went alone so it was nice to see a decent amount of people there.

Pulled into the last parking spot of the trailhead around 9 am. Very busy hike so earlier the better. Had lunch at the less busy, first viewpoint overlooking big si. Great sunrise or morning hike when you don't have a full day available.

This is a good first hike of the season. It’s steep from the start, then it’s flat for a while, then it’s steep at the end. Got a good workout without getting too sore the next day.

Ps, it’s definitely around 4.2 miles instead of 3.6.

Definitely a fun, manageable hike. Gets a little busy on the weekends so get there early if you don’t want to either get lucky, or wait for a parking space (we saw people had parked off-site from the trailhead and walked in). All and all it was a good time going up. A little muddy/slippery toward the top right now, so be careful!

good trail, very busy but the views we're with it.

Roads were closed on both sides. Ended up hiking a total of 8 gorgeous miles today. The wagon trail is not open, don't take that as a loop back as one of the signs suggests... you'll end up walking through very deep snow. TAKE ICE CLEATS! The whole main trail is compacted snow and ice. One hiker slid down the hill at the falls today but was able to get back up. The trail right at the water fall is steep and icy, be extremely cautious. GORGEOUS hike though!!!

Hiked this trail this morning with my dog. Great hike, definitely steep enough in some places to get your blood pumping. It’s a little slippery up at the top right now with some mud still in places. It’s busy on weekends but I didn’t have trouble finding a place to park.

Nice flat trail, great place to bring kids and dogs. Not much traffic on a beautiful sunny day!

The perfect trail in my opinion. Good length and elevation for a casual challenge with a beautiful view at the top. A little overcrowded on weekends but that’s s good indication of how great it is!

Man, it was cold!! Stayed at Five Mile Island for a couple nights. Really loved this campsite- open space, outhouse available, didn't see bear ropes for food tho but could have missed it, right next to the river, lots of flat camping options. Ran into a herd of about 30 Elk. Attempted to continue on the trail but the snow became more dense - highly encourage micro spikes for this. Decided suffering through the cold (even though my sleeping bag is 20 degrees and I was wearing 4 layers) wasn't very fun. Will definitely attempt to reach the glacier at another time.

I did this hike yesterday with my dog and 14 month old daughter in a carrier on my back. Some parts were difficult with rocks but for the most part it wasn’t too bad. Didn’t run into any snow or mud. Get there early if you want parking. I got there at 11am on a weekday and the parking lot was almost full.

Very rocky trail, but well worth it for the views at the top. Caught an amazing sunset at the summit!

Drove all the way from Moses Lake to hike this trail. It was exactly what I was hoping for. (Challenging, but not too challenging.) I brought my 7 year old Great Dane, Georgia, and she dragged me the entire way.

The echo at the top was unreal! A little muddy, no snow. Finished the whole thing in two hours and that was with a 15 minute break at the top.

Nice and easy hike through the snow. Didn’t need snowshoes or spikes.

The rocks were a little slippery and the trail was muddy in places but it was easily navigated. Some snow towards the top but it was melting. It was a hot and humid hike going up and I wished I had worn better layers. Not the best view if you’re expecting a pano. Nice hike overall and not very difficult, although there were some steep spots getting up closer to the top.

Hiked from Exit 47 at road closure. 7 miles RT. Approximately 5 miles of it is walking on the closed road that runs beside I90. Road was compact snow with some deep snow areas but there was an area worn down in the deeper snow areas. I wore microspikes and would recommend them. It was a beautiful day and I was pleasantly surprised to have the falls to myself. The falls are not completely frozen but the surrounded by beautiful ice.

Road remains closed so expect the 7.1 mile round trip walk in the woods. Started early in the morning and the road was icy with plenty of grooves from snowmobile tracks. Microspikes will serve you well and some warm boots. Snowshoes are not necessary, though if you want to carry them for weight, go for it. Trail is easy to find and has compact snow to lead you to the falls. The falls was flowing and plenty of icicles to add depth to the photos. This morning was not slushy and the ice looks like it’ll stay. Dress warm, gloves hats, you name it because it definitely is chilly by the falls. We passed 64 people and about 30 cars parked on the sides on the way back. Make sure to do the hike early (before 8-9AM) especially on weekends to beat crowds and get photos you want.

Very pretty hike. Didn't need snow shoes or spikes.

Breathtaking views yesterday 02/10/18! Great trail for beginner snowshoeing. Plenty of snow for skiing or snowshoeing!

Falls were pretty good. However the park doesn't take care of out houses. Looks like they haven't been cleaned in a few years and seats were broken etc. Better off going in woods or store before getting there. Also no trash cans so people have been just throwing things all over the ground.

Pre Superbowl hike. Second time on this trail and just as lovely. A bit muddy on some spots, but not too crazy.

This was a great hike. Invite friends for a fun experience. Still a good hike if you prefer going solo. We went in early January and it still had snow. Make sure you wear the proper gear (i.e. shoe spikes, wear layers, wet weather clothing, etc.). I noticed a lot of people on the tail had on improper footwear and were slipping or had soaked feet from the snow/melted ice. Denny Creek Road was closed due to the icy roads, which caused us to walk about 2 miles to the actual start to the Franklin Falls Trailhead. The actual trail itself is about another 2.5 miles. During the snowy winter months it's about a 7-8ish mile hike roundtrip. Arriving at the falls was a phenomenal experience. Definitely worth the trek and the view. Bring a waterproof camera or just keep a good distance from the waterfall when taking pictures or it will get soaked.

I got there around 7 am and it took me about 3.5 hours to complete. I didn’t run into anyone until I was almost back to the car. The road to the trailhead is closed but you can park outside the barricades which makes the hike about 7.5 miles round trip. Definitely was thankful for my trekking poles and microspikes! The “trail” that’s on top of the roadway was easy to locate and was packed down, however the snow off that packed path was pretty loose and powdery and after several times of post holing and getting snow in my boots I put gaiters on (I wish I’d thought to put them on prior to that) which helped. Once I crossed the large bridge it started raining and i was sliding all over the place and miserable, so just be aware it can get pretty slushy. Otherwise, it was a great hike and definitely enjoyed the scenery!

TLDR; bring your microspikes and enjoy the hike.
