Nice little hike with good views of the sound at the end. very easy difficulty, recommended for kids and dogs. it is a little muddy so probabaly no tennis shoes.

can be slippery in spots and muddy. Just depends on what time of year you go.
You can walk under the waterfall. If you dont want to get soaked from the mist of the falls, make sure you are wearing rain gear. Fun place to cool down in the summer

very pretty and not to busy!

Beautiful! You are able to get very close to this waterfall. It’s kid friendly, and dog friendly. It does get super cold the closer you get to the waterfall. There’s a small cave near the waterfall to see as well. Some areas are muddy. Definitely watch your step so you don’t fall.

Kid friendly and stroller friendly. Very beautiful, there’s also a lot of traffic.

This is a very easy walk with some beautiful views of the river and the falls. Falls are much bigger in the rainy season(obviously). It’s easy for kids and even accessible with strollers even though I would advise a stroller meant for off-road activity. I have taken my 3 grandkids who are 6, 3, and 2. It’s a great walk when you don’t have a lot of time but want to get away from the hustle and bustle of life.

This is an easy family friendly trail for year round use.

We really enjoyed this trail. First hike of 2019 and we needed an easy trail to start out with. Great picture opportunity along the way.

I did my first mountain bike here this afternoon. And it was awesome. Fairly easy trail but lots of fun. I went up to the falls day picnic area and turned around which is under 5 miles. Need to yield with peds and horseback riders but everyone has food etiquette and friendly. I plan to do the trail again and go even further.

Great trail year-round. Our pups loved it. We found it more enjoyable during low tide so we could walk out on the beach. You can hear the sea lions over on a small island not too far away. We will be back!

Well maintained trail, nice leisure walk. Great views of puget sound at the bottom! Well worth it.

Super good view all the way. Very relaxing and beautiful ~

Good hike

The highlight of our visit to Mount Rainier. This is a steady climb most of the way up but lots of pauses for photo ops and pika watching. Saw hikers of all ages able to do this trail. Great reward for the time it takes to do this trail.

Great trail for little ones. Good for a quick relaxing stroll through the woods and cool ending at the beach.

Beautiful view and pretty straight forward trail

Beautiful views but you can’t really get close to the falls during this tome of year. By close I mean down to the lower level. Definitely coming back here during the spring to see the salmon.

Its a nice trail but nothing special. Very well maintained. Be prepared for lots of stairs and hills. Would be very pretty at sunrise.

my 2 year old loved this adventure! the wooded trails were beautiful. The waterfront was all rocks but had tons of shells she loved to pile up and point out all the colors. AWESOME trail for kids.

Awesome place to take kids just be careful in some areas.

Beautiful trail! It was a great first trail here in Washington and I look forward to many more. Once you get to the water enjoy the seals popping out to say their hellos!!

It’s a really beautiful trail. Great for an easy walk with kids or dogs. I would have given 5 stars, but the gunfire really is what ruins the ambiance. Nothing against guns, but they’re just not what you’re looking to hear when you’re going for a walk in the woods (or at least we aren’t). Otherwise it’s awesome.

this waterfall is so powerful. A beautiful exhibit of nature.

Great day for a hike. Windy but not too muddy. Trail was not too crowded

We had fun in this trail. It's nice that it is surrounded by traffic and yet can't really hear it.

Cold in the winter, lots of shade, as you are walking down a gully to the sound. But nice wide trail more of a road. Lot of dogs. Beautiful views at the water.

Awesome trail for short hike, super family friendly!

You need to find a stone graffitied “falls” and veer off the main road to the left to find the yellow diamonds trail to upper and lower falls, goodluck! To enter the trail we went over a white hurdle, continues by the lake and up towards your right, immediate left turn to the “do not enter” (referring to vehicles) kind of tricky but WORTH IT!
