If you want to hop off your tour bus and see some easy waterfalls then you will enjoy. if you want to hike to the bottom of the falls and escape the tour buses then you will not enjoy. The hike to the bottom is just a viewing platform, you are not able to get very close to the water unfortunately.

Lots of parking and people.

Amazingly not much crowd at 5 pm today ... wonderful trail !!

The falls are beautiful.

But this used to be a place you could sit by the water at the end of the trail and have a picnic. now they have it all caged off.

This was lovely. The views were amazing. Fun to do with the kids. Would do it again!!

Trail is fine but can be steep.

Beautiful, easy trail. Not many views, though. There is a cool meadow restoration halfway through that is worth reading about. Lots of history along this trail. Perfect for if you need to get some exercise and live nearby, but it doesn’t offer any of the typical PNW views.

Tip: grab a map at the entrance. It is easy to get lost, as there are many trails that intersect.

It was a very nice but there were no signs or warnings of the difficulty of hike. The way down was fine but the incline coming back up was horrible. If you’re not in shape or don’t have water with you I wouldn’t hike down. You can see the waterfall without doing the hike down.

Easy to navigate trail, extremely crowded on the weekends so if you’re not up to that then I suggest going on a weekday. The trail down to the water isn’t bad, but going back up may elevate your heart rate a bit! The water is beautiful and my boyfriend went swimming in there. Lots of people brought rafts or tubes.

Easy trail to beautiful waterfalls. We did the bottom trail only and it was easy. We spent time walking across some rocks in the river as well.

Nice and quick! Bring water shoes so you can comfortably walk in the river.

Easy trail, though steep in spots. Well maintained, smooth trail. Split to explore river - can wade and climb on rocks.

The trails was clean and well maintained and the hike to and from was good for all ages. The trails were clearly marked and access to the river was very easy. You can also drive all the way down to the river access for those that did not want to hike. The view of the waterfall was astonishing.

Great, easy hike with an awesome view of the falls from below. If you don’t feel like hiking the view is just as great (if not better) from the viewpoints at the top.

The highlight was seeing a black bear!! This was on the bus portion of the trail between round and traditional lake. Both us and the bear were startled but felt little threat. Really enlivened. We were out there around 3:30 pm and the bear appeared to be foraging right along the trail

i am a total novice. Didn't realize it was in the middle of the west tiger 3 trail. It was steep for me to get there but once finally there it was awesome. worth it for me!

Beautiful waterfall and the river is really nice to hang out by after hiking. If you have a baby I definitely recommend baby carrying, the trail is too rocky and steep for a stroller. The hills walking back are steep and a little difficult but it’s a great walk.

Nice and quite.

Massive waterfall, excellent views from several lookout points. Rest on rocks at base of falls trail on the river’s edge. Steep incline trek to the top. Saw all ages and skill type hiking. Dogs welcome, but be sure to bring them plenty of water! Clean restrooms located at both trailheads. Very busy, but people were courteous in sharing viewpoint spaces.

Convenient location to hike, parking is issue have place to park only 5 cars on road side.
Initial hike uphill is steep for around half mile. Even thought its total hike is around 3 miles, its very tiring and will take around 2 hrs to complete the loop.

The falls are spectacular. We parked across the street and walked across the bridge to view the falls from the top. It’s pretty crowded but this is a wonder of nature that you must see. We hiked to the bottom and the view is so much better. There are two flat level sections on the hike as the trail crosses the power lines. But the rest of the trail is very steep. I recommend doing it in reverse. Park at the lower section and hike up to see the upper view while your legs are still fresh. Then hike to the lower level and spend the rest of your time on the river. Pack a lunch and eat it by the river! Don’t miss the separate lower section to view the falls on the boardwalk too. We did not visit the visitor center.

Absolutely not wheelchair or bike friendly. That being said it is a beautiful trail. Waterfall is dried up but theres an okay fenced off meadow at the end of the trail.

Beautiful view a must see the trail was great to do.

It was an easy hike to see the falls.

Absolutely beautiful trail! You see the best views at the top but it’s also a nice hike down to the bottom. Pretty steep coming back up but totally manageable! Only takes about 10 minutes! Get there early or it will be very crowded!!

Wonderful views of the waterfall, wish we could get closer at the bottom. Went on a Friday, still busy, but got plenty of open area for good views. Our kids 7,4 complained about the hike back up.

Nice quick loop around some areas with cool vegetation. Don’t expect to see much of the lake, the trails hardly get near it. Highway noise by part of it but not a huge deal. Most trafficked part was definitey the swamp trail portion, lots of families with kids. Was relatively empty the rest of the way.

Don’t try to go on a sunny day. You’ll have to fight to the death for a parking spot.
