Easy with kids! Wish we had packed a picnic!

Hike is okay. The view is nothing spectacular up top. When I got back at 10am Sunday, the parking lot was full, so get there early.

Great trail to the waterfall. Show up early and it's not bad.

Much more enjoyable than the zoo at Snoqualmie Falls.

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.

First hike in the PNW and although it was great to get out... this hikes “work to reward” (views) ratio was lackluster.

I went at 10 am on a Friday morning and it was uncomfortably packed. There were at least two scout groups of about ten to fifteen kids, and two adult groups of about ten each later up the trail. Not to mention the numerous single and double hikers. Because of the crowds the hike became unbearably slow and wasn’t tranquil. I guess I am a bit of a curmudgeonly hiker.

Having said the above, Pros: pretty views, lovely foliage, usually nice weather during the summer. Cons: going very slowly due to getting stuck behind so many crowds, listening to lots of other people’s conversations, stopping often to let others pass the opposite direction, difficulty finding parking.

I will say that this is a great hike for children because it has a fun payout for not too much effort. Just be sure to use the bathroom before you get to the trailhead because the bathrooms there are so gross.

I hope you all have a better experience than I did. :-) Happy hiking!

paved, great for strollers and kids

Easy hike, tons of places to take the kids to play in the water. Awesome waterfall. Definitely a must see!

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

Totally too easy of a “hike” but very beautiful with the river and falls!

Didn't have 10 dollars for a day pass so I didn't get to experience nature.

Easy

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!!

Since today was a hot and hazy August day I thought the shade on the trail would be a nice way to stay cool.
Overall, the shady center of the trail was the best part in my opinion. The first part and final parts of the trail are a little steep. I feel like Little Si is more challenging than the views are worth. However it's very well maintained and traveled.

Trail is fine but can be steep.

Climbed on a hot day and the shade in the fern forests was great. One of my favorite hikes in Washington.

2 stars because of the hype, the parking situation and the crowds. I thought this would be much more beautiful than advertised. It's basically an urban flat trail through the woods with a smallish waterfall at the end. Parking is insane! So many people. We kept going to Denny Creek for a longer hike. It's probably a nice small hike for families with little kids, but watch out for them going off trail (this is easy to do) and getting into the poison ivy or the devil's club.

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.

The views from the trail were gorgeous the river is stunning! Super busy but it didn’t take from the stunning view and experience down at the base of the falls. We took wagon road trail back and didn’t see a single soul; the forest hike was wonderful!!

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.

super easy hike with beautiful falls at the end, great on a hot day with kids.

We got to the parking lot at 7:30am and it was about halfway full. Bring bug spray! They immediately started biting at the start of the trail.

Easy hike that took us about 30 minutes to the Falls and 30 minutes back to the car. We decided not to cut to Wagon but we might consider it the next time we visit. Parking lot was 3/4’s of the way full by 8:30am.

Bathrooms at the start of the trail are little rough, so we decided to stop by at a nearby gas station afterwards.

Great kid trail. Get there before 9 am to get a parking spot in the lot, its a very popular trail. Easy hike until the the last 20 feet I could see the rocks being too slippery for some. Take the Wagon Road trail back to the parking lot for a less crowded trail.

Easy and short hike. If you take West summit exit of I90, then the drive to this trailhead is blooming with wild flowers right now and has great scenic views. This was our 2nd time hiking this trail. We hiked once during winters when the road to trailhead was closed to vehicles, and hence the hike was much longer. But right now it is easy 2 miles roundtrip from the trailhead. There were trees providing shade throughout the trail, so no sun or heat. You can also hear water/ creek all through the hike and some break in trees to get sneak views of creek. The waterfall at the end is nice.

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.

Great for kids, short and easy with a great view at the end!
