Busy easy hike. Beautiful waterfall!

Beautiful waterfall!

If it weren’t for AllTrails, I wouldn’t even known of this waterfall. There are no signs at the trailhead but finding it was fairly simple. There are wooden stumps blocking a makeshift campsite on the side of FS90 which the trail is on the right. The trail to the waterfall viewpoint is extremely small and easy but the view is obstructed from tree limbs so not the greatest picture taking place. There is a faint trail just down from viewpoint that leads to the bottom of the falls but it is not for everyone. Be extremely cautious.

Not much of a hike but a nice spot to chill by the rocks with the relaxing sound of the water especially on a hot summer day. However when you do please clean up after yourself. I found disgarded clothing, picnic food scraps by the small sandy area today and nothing irks me more than when people trash our beautiful parks.

Didn't have 10 dollars for a day pass so I didn't get to experience nature.

Awesome little trail, very blue and clear waterfall and creek. I recommend if you don't mind a little walk through the woods.

Short, easy trail to a beautiful waterfall. Numerous No Pet signs, but we encountered two fellow hikers who thought they were "special". Each had dogs! Folks, rules exist for a reason. We called each of these gentlemen out for their wrongdoing, but neither cared at the moment. We need to be the stewards of these beautiful areas! Oh, mosquitoes were minimal today.

Probably would’ve given this 4 stars if it weren’t for the crowds. The trail is short and easy, so it’s hard to spread out from others, especially at the end. The trail is very pretty though, although we found the trail 7-8 miles before it off the road to be nicer just in terms of serenity as well the rainforest type scenery (the name escapes me).

Very easy not for those with a sensitive bladder.no real sign that says trail over here.But tons of photo op gems.

Tuesday early afternoon, we saw about 15 people total, which is more than I'm used to on other trails. Everyone was super polite and we still got to the lake and enjoyed it solo for almost 45 minutes, which was a real treat. Not as many bugs as expected, very clear and easy hike. Definitely a good starter trail or hike with kids. Only a short part vaugely close to a drop off but the trail is wide and it's not directly adjacent the trail.

Great adventure with the kids (7, 14, 16). 2 mile hike was fun going in. We enjoyed all the things people left to show us the way. Waterfall was amazing. We had fun splashing around the pool of water for a good hour before heading back. Beautiful! Enjoyed by all.

This is such a beautiful area. We loved wandering through the rainforest with our three kids: 6,4,2

easy short hike to beautiful falls, the mosquitos/flys were bad (use bug repellent or where long sleeves.) this is a very well maintained, very trafficked trail. visited during a Monday afternoon at the end of July and the trail / parking lot were packed.

Great trail with amazing fall view. Only 0.5 miles, so it’s a busy trail with lots of people taking this.

Great easy hike. Lake is awesome. Worth the time to go see it.

I hiked this yesterday and it was definitely beautiful. I never got tired of the views. Also, it is a short hike. The whole thing took about an hour and a half with lots of breaks.
I feel like the elevation listed here might be inaccurate because we had to take a lot of breaks and it felt steep. The way there is a little steep. However, I am pretty out of shape and it only took us 50 minutes to reach the lake.
The other issue was BUGS. The flies are miserable. When you are moving they are just a minor problem but as soon as we stopped to take a break they swarmed us. I didn't actually get bit by any, but I had to constantly swat at them. The mosquitos were pretty bad by the shady part of the lake as well.

Beautiful hike. Would love to go back and swim and be more prepared for the bugs. :)

Awesome short hike..bring BUG SPRAY, there are lots of mosquitos.

The destination is the only good thing about this trail. But if it’s busy, it’s not going to be good. The swimming hole is very small with room for 4-6 people. So if you’re the only people there, awesome! Getting there.... you’re walking down a gravel road 90% of the time. I wouldn’t really call this a hike.

on June Lake Trail

Beautiful views of the mountain and stream. June Lake is pretty to look at, but it is not a lake; it's the little cousin of a pond. Not great for hammock camping if you need relatively specific distances between trees for your tarp, and don't plan on even getting your shins cooled down in the "lake". Great day hike if you just want to see some views though!

I have been on a lot of pretty trails and this one was just plain hard. Lots of steps and tons of flys. The view was nice but you could not get to the lake like I thought you could. It was not long but took a while because of all the steps but if you stopped flys were all over you BAD. So if steps are hard for you this is not a good trail for you.

I like this trail. Worth squirming your way to the waterfalls when you get to the lake. Theres the big one and a misty one with great photo ops. Pretty quiet and easy trail. Mushrooms  everywhere but can’t pick

Beautiful and short hike from Lake Crescent Lodge, it’s a well maintained trails. Old trees big rocks and the Falls I love them all. The wood stairs are well taking care of. Going up the upper Falls is a little hard on my knees, but it’s worth it. If you want a little easier hike for your knees the lower Falls is a better choice. My 6 years does not have a problem with it though. I’m surprised he didn’t complain. We enjoyed it. I recommend this trail.

on Rainy Lake Trail

Easy nice trail to enjoy with non hiking family members on a drive though the cascades.

One of the most beautiful hikes I’ve ever been on! It’s a pretty easy hike to the falls. We were hoping to get married in front of the falls, but when we got there to check out the location around the end of June it was very very wet and muddy.

Nice short walk through forests that lead to a waterfall.

Mt. Rainier rates this as moderate, I would say it is moderate short hike, with a lot of steep stairs and descending. If you have weak knees , trekking poles are a must. The lake views are amazing, lots of flys! I mean lots, the whole trail. We sprayed off deep woods 3 times and it really didn’t help.

My family and I took a hike down the Sul Doc Falls trail in mid-June. It was about 45 degrees and a light sprinkle most of the way. In other words, it was PERFECT! It was exactly like I would expect a rain forest to be. Everything is covered with some type of green vegetation. The trail itself is definitely not difficult at all, and the falls is a beautiful sight at the end. Other trails continue past the falls into the forest. I wish we could have continued, but my wife definitely would not go for that as she does not like the "cold". Anyway, if you like easy but beautiful hikes, this is one to take!

Super easy great short stop. Barely a hike, but beautiful views
