Very beautiful, with at least three great overlooks to accommodate different difficulty levels. I would call this overall Moderate, not Easy, but our group (and dog) had no problems getting to the Middle Falls. The final 1km Upper Falls stretch is marked Hard.

Pretty good hike. Got more tired towards the upper falls. Wasn’t expecting it to be as steep. But overall a great hike. Went in the morning to avoid crowds and was pleasant. Though noticed a few people with dogs off leash which was not awesome. For that reason I wouldn’t be able to bring my dog next time I hike this trail.

trail is great, we'll maintained. more moderate than easy. really pretty woods and falls. weekends are packed, and there were some dog owners with their dogs off leash (and not well behaved) which was not great. would go back, but would be more careful on timing to avoid the crowds.

Awesome fall day with my pup and my babe! We almost missed the falls until my dog ran up the side trail! It's was stunning and the cave, so cool! We played around at the base for a bit then continued up to the top of the falls, and then even further till we found an rad little campsite! It was a perfect little short round trip, just what we were looking for! :)

Super easy trail, you can shorten the trip by leaving from the picnic area. Plenty of exploring options once you reach the caves and leave the trail, but apparently that's frowned upon due to all of the injuries. In early October you can safely walk up pretty far from the trail and still be well enough away from the caves. Many people were going inside the cave but it really is a bad idea. This trail is well worth the effort. I want to go back in winter. Be aware that the lack of difficulty also means MANY people in troves. Id suggest off season or weekday.

Not the most strenuous hike out there but unbelievable lake and surrounding mountain views!!! Circled around the lake a few times since it was so stunning

We did this hike right after climbing Mt Pilchuck. It was a well marked trail, It was around 11am and there was a good amount of people on the trail. It is a very easy trail for beginners. The views of the lake are really pretty and worth stopping by for a short hike. The road to this parking lot was very bumpy, we had a truck so we were alright.

I loved this trail! Beautiful around every curve.

good short hike with an easy trail. awesome spot at the top. had snow flurries for some larch hunting and did not disappoint!

super easy trail with pretty views at the end. Not worth more than 1.9m one way but if you're pressed on time this is good

Oct. 6, 2018: Decided to come here for a quick hike with a view!! Fewer people in the afternoon-sun down. Worth it!

A beautiful Fall hike. My friends and I came out here on Sunday 10/6. The trail is easy, and beautifully maintained. Great for those that are just getting into hiking. We brought traction with us and didn’t need it, but there were a few small spots that were icy. It did start snowing on us at the lake and never did let up till we were back at the parking lot. This is a very popular hike, get there early the lot fills up fast, cars were parked around the corner and down the road.

Hiked this for the first time and it was beautiful!! I'm so glad we went really early though. We counted 125 people as we came down. Too busy for my liking. The trail was getting a little slick in places. We will be going back though next year! Hiked it Oct 6.

What a beautiful day for a hike! Clear skies and not too cold. Glad we brought microspikes-they we’re required for the last half mile to the lake. The views were incredible, so the trail was busy, but it was totally worth it to see the larches and beautiful Blue Lake.

Many views of the waterfall! So so so pretty! Went midweek and it was pretty quiet and easy to find parking. Discovery pass was needed.

Very nice

Good hike

Snow and ice. Bring traction.

This was a wonderful hike for a beginner hiker like me! The views at the top were gorgeous. Just make sure to bring waterproof shoes.

Arrived about 11:00 on Wednesday, October 3. Only one car in the parking area. Road does have big potholes but my Subaru Forester did fine. It’s a flat road and easy to get around most the holes.

Trail is really wet. Not muddy, just running water in a lot of the area. Waterproof shoes are a plus. It’s a good hike, but nothing particularly amazing about it, looks almost exactly like Lake 22.

Nice lake, super clear and clean, no bugs. Still a little patch of snow at the lake, that was a pleasant surprise.

I had done this in some heavy snow a few years back and I found the hike much prettier then.

We hiked this today and it was absolutely stunning! The colors have all changed and we were surrounded by beauty the entire hike. We went in the afternoon which I highly recommend as we basically had the trail all to ourselves. As prior reviews have stated, the road to get to the trailhead is pretty iffy and I wouldn’t have attempted it without my SUV.

2018/09/30 Sunday (Hiking Date). Enjoyed the hike. Pretty good work out. Very good views of Water falls and Wallace River. Trail path is neat and well marked. Has parking lot (Discovery Pass Required) and well maintained rest rooms. It took around 4 hours to Upper falls (out and back). Traffic on US-2 Highway. Definitely go there again.

Good casual hike

가는 길이 비포장도로 임. 그래도 멋짐

Went on a Saturday, I would not recommend going on the weekend. Very, very busy on the trail. Not the hike to do for solitude. The higher you went the less people there were, but still had to bob and weave your way up.

However, the trail was well maintained, we were never concerned about getting lost. Lots of places to take a rest and pretty diverse trail. Also a great workout.

Beware of the 1 mile stretch of potholes to the trailhead! Otherwise, everything else is nice.
