Waterfalls under 6 miles Map

Easy hike definitely not moderate. Only downside was it was not well marked but we didn't have too much issue navigating. Muddy. Pretty falls.

This hike wasn’t tough. It’s easy not moderate. Signage was really bad, went the wrong way twice. Nice stroll though. Wear boots...there is a good amount of mud and 2-3 washed out sections.

Quick and easy hike without hardly any elevation change. The falls at the end of this trail are pretty. It was moderately trafficked in the middle of the day. There are a couple spots where you need to cross the water, so be prepared for that.

The falls were beautiful, trails were in good condition but poorly marked. A must see adventure. Recommend taking a picture of the trail so you can tell where you are at.

Beautiful Views, trafficked, good season opener.

So fun! And easy, great walk through the woods with abandoned cars along the way!

very easy hike with such a gorgeous waterfall at the end. definitely worth the free hours in and out. definitely must on spots close to the falls.

Ended up way off course due to very little markings, even with a paper map both myself and a ranger ended up taking a four mile detour to find the falls, very pretty end result, muddy so stabilize yourself!

Went on a Friday afternoon, not very crowded was a short hike to falls. Was a decent hike up the hill after the falls to the junction with the John Wayne trail. Will do more often as we cross the pass.

Beautiful trail. Not very well marked... It was quite the fun adventure though. One tip would be to go back out the same way you come in... We made the mistake of going a different way out. Oops

Beautiful sunny, warm day for a beautiful hike. Tons of people and dogs. The trip was still gorgeous though. Good season opener.

Great day for family hike. Busy so we parked on the road outside parking lot. Not muddy and river views were exceptional. A little up and down to get to falls but well worth the effort. Great for kids of all ages!

Cool little place to visit. Not marked very well though.

It was busy trail, but very green and lush. Nice stream. Some people were not happy sharing the trail with other dogs and seemed to be anoyed . Some were nice. Seems to be a populated suburban area and butted up to a housing development.

This was our first time coming here and didn’t really know what to expect as a friend had been suggested it so we thought, why not? If you’re looking for a quiet hike, this is not it. We got an early start but it was a constant stream of people, bikes, horses, etc. Not a big deal to some but not my idea of a hike. It was also clear that many people don’t clean up after their dogs, which was disappointing as I carried my bags the easy 2.5 miles to the garbage. We came from the Hantwick TH and planned to take some trails past the bridge but there was zero signage which for a place like this, you’d think they would have some guide or map other than just elevation. we did the most obvious small loop and called it good as we were getting a little irritated trying to figure it out past that. Like others have said too, hard to see the falls in high water season so maybe a sign to let you know what you may be looking at would’ve been nice. The scenery and bridge were beautiful, it just wasn’t the right “hike” for us.

Very icy. Very very icy. We ran into hikers on there way down and they informed us it was icy all the way up. We kept moving forward but we came to a point where it was just constant ice, we weren’t getting much traction and we weren’t getting very far... so we sadly turned back. We’ll try again in a couple of weeks. It has great potential but the ice was out of control.

Not very well marked. We walked way more than we should have and everybody on the trail we met was there for the first time. But we found the falls eventually. it was a long hike overall but worth it.

This hike was great if you want to be ensconced in the beautiful trees of the PNW. Beautiful, Easy trail with some descent signs so didn’t get lost. The trail is rated as moderate but I would say it is on the easier side. (And I am not an expert hiker) We did have to cross the creek on a log...probably the most difficult part, but you can just cross easily if you don’t mind getting a bit wet.

Fantastic hike, gorgeous in every way, waterfalls, lush greenery, flowers, mushrooms, moss, all that's missing are the little fairies :) Took us about 5-6 hrs, just what we needed.

Mediocre hike with decent views of the waterfalls. May be better in the summer when you could walk down and enjoy sitting by the river. Not bad if you’re looking for a quick, short hike.

Beautiful waterfalls views.
Some mud, I would wear hiking shoes.
My puppy had a blast.
I would suggest going on a weekday, weekends seem to be packed with lots of people.

Beautiful day hike walking on a rolling widened trail through the evergreen forest. The falls at the end were well worth the trip. Picturesque picnic spot at the falls as well.

Beautiful waterfalls. Great river views. Able to go to water's edge.

Cute and fairly short trail near Seattle. Perfect on this cloudy Sunday afternoon.
Be aware of the creek to pass before the waterfall. Either you have to cross a log that’s slippery or to get your feet soaked in the water. It was difficult with three small dogs, but managed to do it.

One of my favorite waterfall hikes so far !! Seriuosly breathtaking . Very few hikers today, made it even more peaceful & beautiful . Little muddy & slippery in spots . Totally worth it though . Recommend wearing hiking boots until it dries out .

Relatively easy hiking, lots of smaller loops and side trails off the main one, interesting history woven into the experience- not too crowded.

Views: Crystal clear river, old trees, two waterfalls.
Difficulty: Easy the inclines are spaced out and there's plenty of flat walking areas.
Trail conditions: Beginning of March- trail was muddy in some spots overall wasn't too bad. The trail didn't have as many people as Rattlesnake or Poo Poo Point.
Overall: This was a beautiful hike! We brought our dog, and he loved it!

It's the easiest to get to the falls if you stayed on the main path of what looks like an access road for the most part. Sections of the trail are washed, so bring some hiking shoes... the view of the falls was worth the mud patches.

does anyone know someone to contact for a reopen date of this trail?

Great hike! It was a bit muddy today but that is to be expected this time of year. (February 27th) We didn’t go to the very end but we made it up to the second fall lookout. Little to no snow on the ground. The trail is well maintained with a handful of sections of log stairs. The falls were incredible!
