Maybe a 3 minute walk. Very easy and a nice waterfall to see.

Quick stroll to beautiful falls. Not over crowded which was nice! Definitely worth stopping and checking out!

A rain forest experience with something for everyone. It is not as accessible as is touted, so if you are in a wheelchair, bring crutches if you have that option or a strong pusher and stick to the .5 mi nature trail route. That said, let me start by giving info where others allude. Many state the trail is easy to confuse but don't explain. The trail is well marked once you are on it, just know your goals and stick to the plan or be willing to walk a bit on the road back to your car. I have spent the past two weeks on some confusing trails so I went to check in at the ranger station ahead of time. Do you ever get the sense they are just messing with you? I have found amazing rangers who want to ensure you will feel safe and have an incredible interaction with nature and some who just want you to interact according to nature's whim. There's a trail! I'm asking for help so I can use it! With a vague wave in the general direction of the parking lot I was told to pick up the trail outside the visitor's center and that it was well marked. Was that a smirk? I dunno....but yes, it was. So here's the deal. If you park in the visitors center stare at the main building (the one you can go into to get smirked at), look to your left and start to walk that way and just to your right you'll see the trail head. It descends to a bridge. Don't cross it! Or do, take a look at the creek below and go back. Or if you need the bathroom it is right on the other side of the bridge. There is a trail just before the bridge that will take you to cross the road. There begins the loop you are seeking. You will pass waterfalls--several of which you hear but do not really get a good look at. So see with your ears and it's a great hike. Think like Dora and these are your goals: cascade falls, cedar bog, Willaby creek, nature trail under the road to the lakeside trail. This will get you the four miles or so promised. It ends when you walk into the back yard of hte Quinault Lodge, where it looks like Roosevelt should be reclining with a pipe. Cut through the parking lot back to the visitors center and your car. For a Washingtonian the elevation gains and losses are no big deal. If you're from western Tennessee you will have other thoughts. Either way you will see runners getting their cardio in, elderly and small children meandering, and middle aged people like me doing whatever you call it that we do to get from one place to the next. Fresh air, lots of canopy for shade or rain protection, and an even soft trail to tread on make for a great morning outside. Enjoy!

Muddy in places. Steep at the end. Excellent forest views. Large trees. Some wooden walkways need repair. Edible berries in places but know which ones are edible!

great short hike to the waterfall.

The trail was a perfect hike for anyone wanting enough challenge but not too much. Great for a morning hike. Plant lovers will enjoy the interpretive pamphlet available in a wooden kiosk at the trailhead - we used it to identify the various ferns and plants along the trail.

Super short trek to a very nice mossy waterfall with a small wade pool at the bottom. A nice way to keep the kids busy for 30 min

My family consisting of three kids (10,11,14) did this hike together. It was a pretty casual, shady, and filled with vegetation. The little creek at the bottom isn’t anything spectacular, but is peaceful to sit next to.

Very short walk. Lovely waterfall but high traffic. Small area to watch the waterfall has seating

Trail surface in great condition but definitely overgrown in many parts. Beautiful and scenic. Across from the lodge which offers nice restrooms and opportunity for a snack before or after.

Beautiful trail and easy until the last third or so when it started going down to the stream. the stream was definitely not worth the effort. Otherwise, it was wonderful with huge, towering trees and lush vegetation.

little long for young kids but a fairly easy hike.

Kid friendly hike it’s a small area just to look at the pretty waterfall from a bench. Not suitable for a huge crowd which is great.

A delightful and relatively easy trail that features a beautiful lake, waterfalls, wild flowers and a cedar bog. The trail was well kept, and dog friendly. We did stop afterwards by the lodge for lunch. Not too far is the Great Spruce tree.

An easy trail with some incline. The flowers along the lake are gorgeous, and the winding river is beautiful. Took less than two hours to complete. Lots of berries along the trail ready for snacking :)
