Difficult road to travers to the actual trail head unless you have an all wheel drive vehicle. We walked the road to the TH and the trail itself is not long but steep and appearing not formerly maintained. The hike is sleek with rock and covered in fallen leaves making it difficult to traverse in many areas. The pay off is well worth the jaunt with a beautiful falls. The drive to this falls is also splendid.

An amazing all around hike! Small walk right up to the base of the falls, or a small moderate 2.0 mile loop if you’re interested in hiking the whole trail. On the trail you’ll see a second waterfall and some other beautiful sights! Hiked it on 11/7/2018, and the fall colors were really popping. Loved every bit of it!

This hike was incredibly beautiful. Watching all the rock climbers along the way is an added bonus. I highly recommend doing Misery Ridge, and know I will definitely do it again. There's pretty good elevation change and stairs, so I wouldn't do it if you have bad knees! Overall LOVED it.

great kids hike, find the hermit cabin for an extra surprise! there's a swing on the way as well!

Absolutely gorgeous! made it to the white locked fence easily thanks to the directions of *always staying to the left and down hill * directions once turn off of Crooked Finger Rd. Took second trail as stated below with Abbey Foundation sign and it was a quick hike in staying left once we hit the river.
Definitely going back once every season this next year !

Went in the dark, still a fun hike

This isn’t really a hike. Yes there’s a trail but all the ones people are talking about aren’t official trails and have resulted in multiple deaths over the years as they aren’t maintained/are very worn away. The falls are beautiful and worth driving to/checking out...but don’t expect a hike and realize if you hike down to the water or behind the falls that you are off trail. This area really needs more rangers/officials to stop all the illegal activity.

Didn't do the entire trail because we were on a time schedule but the waterfall is gorgeous. Highly suggest.

Perfect hike, not hard just enough and getting to the waterfall was a great experience.

Beautiful day this past Sunday. We took advantage of the little times we had so we drove here to Artist Point. Parked car down in lower parking and hiked to the top and explored little bit of the amazing area. The views of Mount Sukshan and Mount Baker are amazing!! What a glorious day.

Not difficult, but if you want to get better pictures you’ll do a little navigating on slippery rocks. Even then, it’s not bad. Views are spectacular, of course.

So beautiful!

Watch out for dog poop on the trail! It was kind of a bummer to have to be more aware of piles of poo than actually enjoying the scenery around. Overall, it's a beautiful tiny hike!

My favourite waterfall although hike is short and usually very crowded.

Beautiful

Great trail for all ages. The views are spectacular!

My brother & I drove ALL the way here for nothing...
We can hike like beasts and navigate well but once we got about 1/2 way done with the hike, your just left stranded and guessing.
there's a HUGE lack of signs and you just get lead to an open area of complete confusion.
We tried to find the right trail using the description but had no luck at all.
We tried to find the right way for an hour or two and just said screw all of this and packed it home.
If you want to waste your time... Come Up To This Trail!

Easy loop with a beautiful view over the lake.

Did this hike 6 week postpartum. It was very challenging as I wasn’t in great shape yet, but was very doable. I definitely recommend! Go early! Wear sunscreen and don’t forget water! Very rewarding views. Lots of going up and but going down is challenging too with loose spots. Take your time!

Beautiful. Rog’s directions below are essential reading before you go.

great short trail to the top and bottom of the falls. three kids and myself enjoyed this very much.

beautiful! I was lucky enough to go at an unbusy time.

Only did half of this (footbridge to summit & back) due to time, but a threat hike! Not for the inexperienced or out of shape. Will come back to finish this this and other again soon.

Great hike!!!! past reviews helped big time to find the falls. once you get to the dead end it’s only .5 miles to falls but it’s a climb down and a climb back up ,totally worth though . lots of people while we were there . parking is very tight

This trail is very, very dangerous. If you are on the trail in Rog’s pictures (below), you might consider turning around and finding the easier trail a bit further down. We got pretty banged up and were told by a girl that her mom was life-flighted out due to sliding all the way down.

Under current driving conditions (9/22/18) I would say you absolutely must have a high clearance vehicle or you’re going to get stuck.

There are also people shooting guns and drinking most of the way down. Just a heads up.

The waterfall is magical and totally worth visiting.

Beautiful! We did not go all the way down to bottom of falls, but was pretty where ever you chose to go.. lots of warnings about falling to your death tho.. which puts you on alert!

Beautiful but not as long as I would have liked.

This is probably in my top 5 best hikes I’ve ever done. I think the distance probably turns many people away but I promise the views make it worth it. The cliffs up there need to be seen to believe. I saw many pictures before going on the trek but nothing prepares you for the real deal in person. The 1-2 kms is almost straight ascent in my opinion wasn’t bad but I do a lot of hiking and an fairly endured.
If you’re gonna do the trek, start early. This allows you time to spend up top as well as detour over to Tee Harbour which is gorgeous (you’ll see signs for it along the way) and get back to your vehicle in time the dinner. It took me and my husband 6 hours or so to complete this hike.
