Absolutely awesome hike with beautiful scenery and the lake is stunning and a great place for a picnic! We hiked this trail with four kids (7, 7 1/2, 9 1/2, 9 1/2) and they were tired but did great, although they have hiked quite a bit. The littlest had the most difficult time. Rocks, roots, and switchbacks makes this trail challenging for the out of shape hiker. The view is worth it!

The trail is very well maintained, lots of benches and break spots if ya need it! Did this hike early on a Monday and almost had the trail to myself! It was lovely!

Hiked this on Sat, 7/28. Very beautiful although wildflowers are significantly past peak.

Beautiful hike, crowded at 7am. Walked it with our cat, don’t forget your discovery pass! There is also a pull off on the road immediately before the trail parking lot (if coming west from Seattle) that saves you about a mile of hiking.

Lovely little hike, not too short, not too long, not too busy, with a perfectly beautiful waterfall at the top!

climbing in the beginning, then in the woods but not much exciting to see.

Good spot for fishing

$5 permit needed for parking. No issues finding parking at 4pm. Such a fun hike given variety of nature such as little creeks or a fallen tree blocking the path. Best of all is the reward of a beautiful lake at the top!

Easy with kids! Wish we had packed a picnic!

Had a lot of fun with our dog (kept her on leash). Went past the 7th bridge up a bit more towards Jones park but didn’t quite make it. Will definitely come again.

Great, easy hike. Hiked Saturday 8/18 and arrived around 10 AM to a fairly full parking lot but got lucky finding a spot in Lot 2. Lots of people hiking up and down and trail etiquette could definitely be better. Storm rolled in as we hit the lake so we turned back and jogged down (fun but a bit sketchy with all of the rocks).

Returned Sunday 8/19 around 12 PM to an overflowing lot and had to wait for a space. Eventually got in and up past the lake and over the glacier. Crossed the glacier in a narrow spot and did a little bouldering. Great time!!

While this is an easy hike, we did see people walking up in shorts and t shirts with no rain gear and a small bottle of water as the rain was starting. Always go prepared!

My favorite of all

Hike is okay. The view is nothing spectacular up top. When I got back at 10am Sunday, the parking lot was full, so get there early.

Beautiful and friendly. Make sure you have the right pass (mountain pass or something like that.) Many rocks and roots and lots of uphill, including some switchback. But absolutely worth it.

Strenuous incline for the first mile (you start at 10,400ft.). The hike flattens out in the middle with 2 meadows filled with wildflowers. It finishes with an incline for the last mile or so to the alpine lake at 12,000 ft. You can continue on for unobstructed mountain views and little to no crowds.

Great trail to the waterfall. Show up early and it's not bad.

Much more enjoyable than the zoo at Snoqualmie Falls.

Lots of rocks but beautiful views

Loved it, get there early to get a spot and bring your Discover Pass. You can purchase a day pass in the parking lot for $10. Recommend walking sticks for the descent. Beautiful views of river and falls.
Air quality was good but a bit of a haze still lingered.

The falls are beautiful. The hike was easy but not a lot to see along the way which made it more difficult in my mind. Would probably hike from PCT if I were to go to Ramona again.

My boyfriend and I loved this trail! Make sure you bring a pen or something to write with so you can fill out the parking form and pay your 5$ with exact change! It was definitely very rocky but it wasn’t terribly hard and the views were totally worth it. Will definitely be hiking this trail again!

Our family of 4 completed this hike today and loved it (about 3.5 hours including a 20 min lunch). It wasn't very difficult, very pretty and the return trail on the lollipop was definitely our favorite. The falls have a unique look which was very nice. The round trip distance with my GPS watch was 6.87 miles from the trailhead. Also you must get a day pass from town, you can't get it at the trailhead. Loved it!

Great hiking trail. Prepare yourself for the elevation gain but it’s well with it. Pups loved it too!

I can't imagine a more beautiful hike. Not so much of a workout at the pace we went, stopping so many times for photos and to enjoy the views, but worth every second. If you are at all considering this, do it. You'll be so glad you did. (But start out early, especially on the weekend--it will get crowded.)

Steady traffic with pretty view. Would be nice to pack lunch and rest by the water. Lots of families and pups.

on Trail of Ten Falls

Scenic views of waterfalls are plentiful on this hike. It didn't feel hard but one does need to be prepared for the distance. It was heavily trafficked on a midday Saturday – so don't expect a solitary experience – but that is to be expected. North Falls are worth the extra distance.

First hike in the PNW and although it was great to get out... this hikes “work to reward” (views) ratio was lackluster.

I’m a novice hiker and this was my second hike in the PNW so far. The views along the way made it really enjoyable the whole way.
