Such a beautiful hike! My husband and I climbed to the top of the waterfall and just soaked in the view. The water is a pretty blue green color. The trail is fairly easy. I highly suggest this hike.

Great hike...good workout...decent elevation gain! The signage could be better!

as of june 2018 part of the road broke away but park on the side and the walk is about 2 minutes till you get to a tee in the road go RIGHT for the trail. left takes you to an old logging road. boo. the hike is in view alongside the river. one part leads you strait to the river where you can sit and take a break or just take it all in. continue on and it leads you into the open forest, a continuous trail. then you're alongside an area with huge boulders all around. it leads to the lake but you can't really explore around the lake (a long time ago you could) as theres debree from old logs and brush. you can fish or theres open areas for camp and bon fire.

This is one of my Favorite Hikes in WA (thus far)! I’ve hiked it 3 yrs in a row now, twice in April when the creek is running strong- which is beautiful- & once in early July when much of the creek is dried up. Angel Falls is simply breathtaking, esp. if you can carefully & safely climb up to the very base of the falls. Reviews are right-on about the steep switchbacks to reach the falls, if you take that particular route. But you can also come at them from the other way, which is also a very cool portion of the loop. The 2 bridges are indeed gone this year, but makeshift rocks, etc. are in place that make the crossings quite easy. Trekking poles came in very handy though!

So beautiful. I give it all the stars possible. Easy trail with big rewards in view. Got there about 7:30 had the trail mostly to ourself

Challenging and very rewarding hike with breathtaking views of Mt. Rainier.

Great day on a beautiful trail. Got an early start , only 1 other hiker/photographer at the lookout . Clouds came and went the whole time we were at the top. Flowers just starting and NO bugs. By the time we were back at car all clouds were gone and it was very clear !! Still a perfect day in the PNW ❤️...(no snow ... no water)

Easy hike in to this beautiful and powerful waterfall.

Falls are beautiful. Supposedly, the trail up to the lookout is down at the moment but they are trying to get it finished. My dad lives about 1 mile from this hike so I do it quite often. Great workout. Can't wait until we can hike all the way to the top.

Easy and short, make sure you see the view as well as the cave, there's two trails that circle around at the end.

So here’s the deal folks. If your a novice/ intermediate hiker and have been “cherry picking” day hikes to meet your abilities or maybe even trying a harder trail and not finishing it out, then this trail is for you. It is awesome with amazing views of Mt Adams and the Goat Rocks. So the first 1.5 miles is fairly hard. Just take your time because the next mile is still a good climb, but not near as steep. At MP 2.5 you get your first amazing view of Mt Adams and Goat Rocks. The next two miles are just small rolling hills on the back side of Nannie Ridge that ultimately pass a couple really cool small ponds and eventually end up at Sheep Lake. The views are spectacular just make sure you bring plenty of bug spray and sun block because once you break out of the timber the sun and bugs are a little intense.

This trail is definitely uphill both ways. We went Saturday and camped for the night. Even though this is a short hike I’d say it was difficult especially carrying 30 to 40 pound backpacks. The lake is beautiful and the water was very clear. We were disappointed that you really can’t hike around the lake and there really only seemed to be one spot you can camp which was right on the trail. I’d say this hike is best for in and out hiking and not camping.

Awesome hike yesterday... Took the east side trail from Grove of the Patriarchs... Nice easy hike in and out. Falls were amazing.

We had 5 small kids age 5-11 and only did the 1 mile straight hike to the falls. We did not continue on throughout the 4 mile loop. This hike did have an elevation change of 300 feet throughout the trail. Some parts of the trail are narrow and right along the edge. But the Silver Falls are amazing. We went at the end of June and the colors we bright and vibrant. It was pretty heavily trafficked too. This trailhead was somewhat difficult to find as it was tucked in to the trees. But it is directly across the street from the Grove of the Patriarchs trail parking lot and the Eastline Trail sign. Definitely worth the short hike.

Gorgeous

Beautiful scenery!!! The falls are great and the kids loved every bit of the hike. This is one I will do over and over again.

Awesome hike! Very beautiful with lots of amazing views. Only gave 4stars due to lack of directions...got turned around and didn't get to complete the full hike. Definitely a hard hike, with lots of up hill but worth the gorgeous waterfalls.

Switchbacks to Angel Falls were steep.... beautiful hike!

Super easy and short. Cave was cool and the view was amazing.

Bridges are down so we were a little worried about making it to the falls, but we were able to make our way through anyhow. Several trail signs are down/missing but otherwise it’s a good hike. The falls are Beautiful!

A fun hike for families with older children/teenagers. A narrow, ever-changing trail through varied scenery. The trail seems to be constantly climbing or descending and by the end, you will feel like you went a lot longer than 4.4 miles. Glacier Lake is a gem! We went on a Friday afternoon and only ran into one other group of hikers. Beware, the last portion of the forest service road (2110) is closed due to a major wash-out - be ready to hike a little over half a mile from FD 21 to the trail head (mostly uphill, look for a small pink flag marking the turn-off to the right).

This trail was truly amazing. The views of the roaring waters with the trees were stunning. We went up to the rocks and were a foot away from the falls, the mist in our faces felt so nice and the sounds were so relaxing. You can climb out to the rocks but be careful at some points are slippery. Highly recommend this hike!

Great hike! Did it with a friend and her 3 daughters, littlest one 9. Enjoyable hike for all ages. Well maintained trail, easy to follow signs. Actually did silver falls trail, but connected to the grove of patriarchs trail, which is a must see also! Waterfall was full and powerful, awesome to stand next to it and feel the mist on you. Lots of shade cover and so green.

This hike is definitely not a loop. We followed the map for the hike and it took us in a crazy route. First of all the hike is not hard, moderate is more accurate. It is not well marked at all and very confusing to find the right trail, even for us avid hikers. The hike is well over double the elevation gain stated. I think we went about 1700 elevation gain. Lastly, the falls are great. There are many on this hike and the last big ones are amazing.
