So beautiful! Huge trees totally covered in Moss for the whole trail. It made me want to do the whole Hoh River trail when I have time.

It is so beautiful. A nice easy to follow loop with information about plants that you can read as you go along. There are also poems about nature by different poets, such as William Wordsworth, Theodore Roethke, Langston Hughes. Beautiful green mosses drape the trees. There is a short side trail to a cute maple grove.

Great hike! It was steep and not gonna lie it kind of kicked my ass. Haha. Be prepared to rock climb.

Very difficult for beginners but a great introduction to a summit hike. Was very disappointed from the peak as the view was obstructed and covered in snow. 3/4 of the hike was through snow as well. Do not recommend for this early in the season.

Great easy hike, a little climbing over a downed tree, but the falls are just beautiful. Lots of gorgeous pics of moss covered rocks with water flowing over.

Pretty scenery with lots of informational signs about the flora. Lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots of people and loud because of it. Great for people at all levels! An average person can probably do it in about 20 minutes, so it doesn't take long. Add it on to another hike in the area!

Pouring rain when we were there but very pretty. Short and easy loop.

I hiked this April 2 and it was beautiful and I would definitely recommend this, it's a little hard going up but the view is worth it.

Super easy hike, great views. Part of the trail higher up past the falls is snowed out this time of year.

Super interesting to see the foliage in a temperate rainforest! Super easy hike, more of a walk, and the drive in to the trail heads was a great view too.

Loved this hike! A great workout and a great challenge with an incline the whole way up, the rope portion after the maintained trail ends was also a unique challenge. The views of crescent lake the the mountains was well worth it!

Great hike. beautiful lush greenery and creeks along the way. there is a large tree in the way so go around it. falls are roaring this time of the year

easy scenic hike. all levels can do this

great challenging hike. be in shape bc this feels like a straight incline for a majority of the hike. views are so worth it!

Beautiful and accessible for the most novice hiker.

Beautiful waterfall, but this is not a actual trail. The falls are right off the road. Parking and bathroom facilities available.

Wonderful climb but you need to be in shape to keep a low heart rate! Ropes are a little ways after the sign that marks "end of maintained trail." To challenge those you are required to be in extreme physical shape for maximum results.

Gorgeous trail! We did this on a sunny day in March and it was perfect, plenty of traffic but not enough that it felt crowded

Amazing hike. It started snowing a little bit but not too bad. Incline almost the entire way, and kind of sketchy towards the top with the ropes. Once you see that view it is totally worth it!

Really awesome views. We had to turn back about .3 miles short of the top because of some snow that we hadn’t anticipated. But if you go this time of year and you have shoes with good grip, you’ll be fine! Lots of inclines!

Nice short hike with 2 cool bridges to cross. Water is crystal clear.

Not a hike, but pretty waterfall. It didn’t feel as spectacular as Marymere falls.

this one is fairly easy,pretty but also very beautiful to see all the green and the water, fresh water at that. I've taken my granddaughter up there she's 6 months old it was just beautiful and didn't take very long

this is an amazing hike to be able to see different bodies of water it definitely is a really hard hike and the end is really scary and very excited that I was able to do such a hike

beautiful scenery year-round. i highly recommend a visit in mid Autumn though for the myriad of colors and depth throughout the trail.

Beautiful! Super nice and easy!!

Loved this hike! The trail was in great condition. No snow on the ground, but it did start snowing heavier when we reached the top. Perfect for a cloudy day mid winter. Steady incline all the way up, and not a lot of views. Also, the road just before the trailhead from Port Angeles had a lot of pot holes.

Nice one for the family! Rewarded with a beautiful waterfall!

Scariest thing I’ve ever done. Totally worth it though.
