Totally too easy of a “hike” but very beautiful with the river and falls!

great hike a few steep switchbacks

I was super excited to see all the views with water, but sadly the water was all dried out. It’s got really pretty tree views, cool little bridges, and it’s a decent work out. We ended up getting lost and took an extra 2 miles some where off the trail lol but it was alright just more excersize and pretty views for us! Also, when you get to the “top” there’s no real view to look forward to. Not a bad hike at all, I’ll retry in the fall when I can see the water but if your looking for a view at the top, you won’t find it here.

Lovely hike close to Seattle. Can be crowded.

The beginning of the hike is easier and runs along side a river. You’ll start to hear the waterfall as you hike deeper and start to gain a little elevation. There is a fabulous lookout point with benches to enjoy the view of the waterfall from afar. The hike becomes a slightly harder with lots of change in elevation towards the waterfall. There are no signs on the trail. We ended up at the upper falls spot first and then went back down towards the lower falls lookout afterwards. Gorgeous hike!!

Overall good family friendly hike, it is busy though.

Fun way to spend a hot day! Views from upper and lower falls are gorgeous!

My friend, who has just recently gotten into getting back into shape and I hiked this trail today. She is almost 60, and I am in my mid-sixties. We enjoyed many streams, tall trees, views of the South Fork of the Snoqualmie River, and just hanging out together. It is rated easy, and at our age and ability found it very doable but it’s still a workout. We went down to the lookout for the highest waterfall (lots of stairs and not all of them very even heights) and we are glad we did. Enjoyable day, even though it was in the 90’s by the time we were done, since there are virtually no places where the sun is beating down on you.

pretty good hike, fun one with my son

2 stars because of the hype, the parking situation and the crowds. I thought this would be much more beautiful than advertised. It's basically an urban flat trail through the woods with a smallish waterfall at the end. Parking is insane! So many people. We kept going to Denny Creek for a longer hike. It's probably a nice small hike for families with little kids, but watch out for them going off trail (this is easy to do) and getting into the poison ivy or the devil's club.

A great hour and a half to 2 hour loop! Enough work to keep it interesting, but never too much a challenge to not be fun.

My toddlers first hike! He loved it! Lots of other kids on the trail, nice people. Access to the water for playing or dipping in, which quite a few folks were doing. It was awesome. I can't wait until my son can go even farther when he gets bigger.

very easy and enjoyable hike. very pet and family friendly.

The views from the trail were gorgeous the river is stunning! Super busy but it didn’t take from the stunning view and experience down at the base of the falls. We took wagon road trail back and didn’t see a single soul; the forest hike was wonderful!!

One of my favorite hikes to date. Pretty high traffic but worth it. My husband and I found a path that led to a part of the falls that was secluded and we took a dip in the ice cold, crystal clear water. Absolutely amazing. Won’t forget this hike!!

I’m five months pregnant and had my 2yr old on my shoulders and LOVED this hike. It’s short but beautiful and we hiked down to the waterfall and went swimming underneath it.

super easy hike with beautiful falls at the end, great on a hot day with kids.

Perfect sanity break on my way to eastern washington. Easy access to trailhead. Yes there is freeway noise in some places but I consider that a trade off to easy access.

took my kiddos on this trail last weekend and it was GORGEOUS... no open views or waterfalls but worth the hike... definitely don't recommend during wet weather as when u are coming down the trail it is very mussy and slippery... our group ages ranged from 2 1/2 to 9 for our kids and wasn't too tough of an incline going up the trail... definitely not "easy" trail and more moderate for unskilled hikers

We got to the parking lot at 7:30am and it was about halfway full. Bring bug spray! They immediately started biting at the start of the trail.

Easy hike that took us about 30 minutes to the Falls and 30 minutes back to the car. We decided not to cut to Wagon but we might consider it the next time we visit. Parking lot was 3/4’s of the way full by 8:30am.

Bathrooms at the start of the trail are little rough, so we decided to stop by at a nearby gas station afterwards.

Great hike! Really packed on weekends but people were pretty cool for the most part about trail etiquette. People pick up your dang trash!!! We carried out as many plastic water bottle as we could but seriously, it’s terrible how trashy humans are to the environment. So I would imagine this trail is always packed by the looks of the garbage lying around. Otherwise it is a beautiful hike, lots to see and the river and falls were beautiful.

Great kid trail. Get there before 9 am to get a parking spot in the lot, its a very popular trail. Easy hike until the the last 20 feet I could see the rocks being too slippery for some. Take the Wagon Road trail back to the parking lot for a less crowded trail.

Easy and short hike. If you take West summit exit of I90, then the drive to this trailhead is blooming with wild flowers right now and has great scenic views. This was our 2nd time hiking this trail. We hiked once during winters when the road to trailhead was closed to vehicles, and hence the hike was much longer. But right now it is easy 2 miles roundtrip from the trailhead. There were trees providing shade throughout the trail, so no sun or heat. You can also hear water/ creek all through the hike and some break in trees to get sneak views of creek. The waterfall at the end is nice.

Was a bit of an incline for my 4 year old, maybe the rating should explain the incline as a warning. Over all beautiful waterfall and nice trail. There was plenty of resting spots.

Great for kids, short and easy with a great view at the end!

Great hike! I would definitely do it again. It's not long at all, but there isn't much to see beyond the bridge that you cross with the viewing of the falls. I kept going up beyond that and there was nothing and it was noisy since you could hear the cars on the highway. That was the only thing I didn't like. Definitely follow the trails/steps going down because that is where the best views of the falls are. The bridge is nice, but downwards is where the view is really at. I would recommend going early morning before midday because when I was going back down (around midday) there was a bunch of people coming up. Also, discover pass is required or $10 daily parking. There is a kiosk machine available at the beginning of the trail.

The map that is associated with this hike takes you to the straight up and back, not the loop. We didn’t make it to the top as it started to get really hot and we knew we entered from the wrong trail head. Discovery pass is required which we didn’t know being new to the area. It was a beautiful hike but water was dried up. Not a soul on the trail which was a little strange but all in all it was a good work out if nothing else.

I love this trail! I’ve hiked it a few times, each going further past the falls. Eventually it connects to the John Wayne Pioneer Trail. It’s a good hike for all skill levels, but be sure to take the staircase down to the lookout before you hit the falls! The view is incredible. Parking can be a pain on the weekends, and you may have to park down the road.
