Continue past the falls on the trail for little to no crowds and absolute serenity in the forest. That was my favorite part; this place is magical.

insanely beautiful with wild orange mushrooms to one serine log cabin off off to the side of the trail. easy peasy

This is a great trail for autumn hikes. The trail isn’t overly difficult in any spot. The trees were changing colors with the river asa backdrop - very pretty. There is a stream crossing that, in springtime, will get your feet wet.
This IS a dog-friendly trail, just please leash your pooch.

We went with our 5 and 7 year olds in the pouring rain. It was a great length and experience.

Steep but well-maintained trail. Well worth the effort. Quite impressive.

Road closed.
10+ mile hike to springs from road closed gate.
We were time restricted and disappointed we couldnt do it.
Road is washed out allegedly.

Lovely, short, easy. Next to a river. Lush.

Great for kids! Just the right length and easy. Just North of the Lake Cushman campgrounds.

Such a beautiful and ultimately thrilling trail. Be sure to see the waterfall on the lower trail before you climb up to the trestle.

This was a nice easy hike that was pretty beautiful the whole way. The waterfalls were gorgeous. We went on 09/09 at like 10am. It was sort of a rainy day which maybe helped as there weren’t too many people. We actually had some time completely alone by the lookouts over the falls which doesn’t sound typical. On the drive in we stopped at the first pullout that had a bathroom. Ended up being a little path to a small waterfall overlook that was nice as well you should check out if you are in the area.

Nice, easy, short trail. Lots of interesting trees and a cool bridge. Be sure to take the short detour to see Big Cedar Tree. It’s no longer standing but still awesome. Don’t forget to climb in the roots for a cool pic!

Pretty hike. Crystal clear water in falls and river. Went later in day and light thru trees was beautiful.

Magical hike through the rainforest. I never tire of how the light flickers in and out and highlights the beauty of these special woods.

So beautiful... tons of hikes and camping. This is a must see!!!

Nice little hike, water is a clear blue, pretty area

It was breathtaking.

THIS IS CLOSED - NOT ACCESSIBLE AS OF SEPTEMBER 11. The road to the trailhead is closed until October 5 apparently - the road closes about 5 miles from the trailhead (I recommend driving the open part anyway, as it’s beautiful), so maybe you’d be able to walk if you were super keen... but I wasn’t that keen hahaha

Nice hike that loops around the river. Cool bridge everyone takes pictures on. Worth the hike for a nice outdoor walk.

Super easy and short looped hike with options to keep going. Beautiful moss covered trees and crystal clear water!

Nice hike. Most of the hike is flat with the exception of the first mile.

A short trip, nice in the evening.

Nice short trail, but it gets pretty steep in some sections. The waterfall is tiny, but a nice stop before heading up to the trestle.

Easy and great hike. There is roughly 2 miles of gravel so be careful when driving down the road. Easy to find trailhead and not very crowded for Labor Day. Views in every direction along the way.

For some reason I bought a ticket to a 1pm movie, but didn't want to skip out on getting this hike done today. Got to the trailhead at 7:30am and tried to keep my pace brisk the whole way, minimizing any side adventures. I did go out to the riverside to enjoy the panorama.

As many have said, you'll be climbing then descending a bit dramatically right at the start, while the rest is fairly flat with some spurts of ups and downs. Nice mix of experiences: completely silent old growth, dense fern ground cover, river sounds, a variety of bridges, very small water crossings (more like step overs) and a mess of sizable logs and tree roots. It feels like a quintessential pacific northwest hike.

Next time I'll give myself a whole day to explore more of the side paths and maybe even get wet in the river.

And I JUST made it to the theater as the trailers were ending. Whew! It was quite a workout.

My favorite place in the Olympics. I've hiked this trail plenty of times at every season. To me is the perfect show case of the Olympics for family and friends to see. Easy and scenic . I've taken all sorts of people through the loop. On a warm day, you can jump off the rocks. The water is cold but crystal clear. Make sure to take the little detours to appreciate it's beauty!

Easy hike with great old growth forest. Hiked in reverse and enjoyed the best canyon view at the end of the hike.

Beautiful views of the water and easy enough for my three-year-old to walk on his own. Great for family time.
