Falls larger and better than expected

Beautiful hike, wet leaf litter and mud near the falls made it a little slow going, but well worth it.

easy walking trail

Very busy walk right in downtown Olympia. It’s good for going on a walk if you don’t want to or don’t have time to get into the woods. It’s a nice and clean trial, with views on Mt. Rainer and the capital building.

Good easy hike. paved nice green trail. Ends at the beach... Daughter loved all the little crabs

Lovely, short, easy. Next to a river. Lush.

Trail is closed until October 1st for logging. A huge disappointment

Great for kids! Just the right length and easy. Just North of the Lake Cushman campgrounds.

loved this trail! will be using it for training!

came in on the little mashel falls-bud Blancher trail side. beautiful trail but beware of vicious blue heeler living on the ranch the trail goes by on the right side. my dog was bit and had to turn back. need to try again with out the pup!

Nice, easy, short trail. Lots of interesting trees and a cool bridge. Be sure to take the short detour to see Big Cedar Tree. It’s no longer standing but still awesome. Don’t forget to climb in the roots for a cool pic!

Nice little hike, water is a clear blue, pretty area

very nice and relaxing walk, beautiful beach great first dogs that like to swim!

It was breathtaking.

Part of the Olympia experience. Always a nice walk.

Nice hike that loops around the river. Cool bridge everyone takes pictures on. Worth the hike for a nice outdoor walk.

Super easy and short looped hike with options to keep going. Beautiful moss covered trees and crystal clear water!

Great trail for all ages, shapes, and sizes. Great signage and mile markers. Scenery is calming. Destination on the bay worth the short walk.

Easy and great hike. There is roughly 2 miles of gravel so be careful when driving down the road. Easy to find trailhead and not very crowded for Labor Day. Views in every direction along the way.

Great little hike. However, we didn't use the trail and took an adventure up river. Very scenic. Only downside is the area was a bit sketchy and there was some litter in and around the creek

My favorite place in the Olympics. I've hiked this trail plenty of times at every season. To me is the perfect show case of the Olympics for family and friends to see. Easy and scenic . I've taken all sorts of people through the loop. On a warm day, you can jump off the rocks. The water is cold but crystal clear. Make sure to take the little detours to appreciate it's beauty!

Easy hike with great old growth forest. Hiked in reverse and enjoyed the best canyon view at the end of the hike.

I loved this trail. Easy and beautiful!

I went here yesterday and it is absolutly beautiful. I would definitely go again.

Hiked on 8/24. Water volume was low and definitely want to go back when sunny and warm, earlier in Summer. Good exercise, not too easy. Start at park, not on logging road.

Beautiful views of the water and easy enough for my three-year-old to walk on his own. Great for family time.
