Fun and kid friendly hike. Pretty flat, trail is wide and in good shape. The fire burned through here, so the forest isn’t really there anymore in a lot of this area. Still a great hike, flowers, water, morel mushrooms.....the falls are amazing. My GPS said 6 miles round trip.

Love hiking up here but it’s too bad the fire happened still a great hike.

Great easy hike. Unfortunately the fire in 2017 burned most of the forest along this trail... Trees have fallen across the path for at least the first mile requiring a little extra effort until they clear them. Thankfully the bridge is untouched and the falls are still gorgeous. Raging this time of year!

I think it’s a trail that’s more interesting for mountain biking. Very little views.

This is trail is still very snowy with bad ice in some spots. I highly recommend wearing snow cleats. I didn’t bring cleats so I had to turn around at the switchback because I couldn’t even make it up that without falling. Will try again in a month or so.

Easy hike. I recommend following the waterfalls up the mountain, most people stop at the first.

One of my favorites, with great views! easy for all ages

Alright trail. The views were mostly obscured by trees, but if you go left on trail 24.1 at the "end" of this trail, you can get to an overlook pretty quickly. Stay on 24.1 (don't veer right into 28.3) and it'll be pretty obvious when you get there. There's what looks line a split in the trail but really the one to the right just goes to a slightly higher overlook and comes right down next to the lower one, so go either way.

Decent enough hike, you can make it as long or short as you want. Trail sections off at many points and even has a trail going to the top of Mt Sentinel.

We took our 7year old grandson, who had no issues with the length. The falls are amazing!!!

Hike that can be done without any pack if you wanted to go minimalist. Easy and flat enough to take young children on; very safe, wide, well maintained, and stable trail.

love this hike!

Really liked this trail to the Falls. You walk through an area of dead fall trees and then up the ridge and down to Morrell Lake. You make a left on the trail to continue to the Falls. Over a bridge and around to the Falls. The spring melt was in full force an the falls were overflowing and powerful as shown by the pictures attached. Well worth the trip.

Quick little jaunt with some nice views but look quick to find 'em. "I like"

The only difficulty of this home is it's length. You do walk through some large beetle kill standing timber which is cool. There is a pin towards the end that would be difficult to fish. You will not be alone on this trip.

Great hike. Not strenuous. About 6 miles or so round trip to the water falls which were awesome. Bear country but no signs today, the berries weren't quite ripe yet though. Our 9, 6 and 4 year olds had fun on this hike even with getting rained on the whole way back.

Great for elevation training

beautiful, easy hike... not steep or very difficult. A few areas where there is an incline. Falls are very beautiful! A lot of traffic on the trail when we went, but still a sight!

Very fun hike to a beautiful waterfall, trail was packed with people. Pretty easy with very little short spurts of intermediate hills. Loved it. Dog loved it. Great hike!

This is one of my favorite hikes - absolutely breathtaking

it was so great. i think one of the best hikes i have ever been on. so pretty and pretty moderate.

Rated as moderate, but I would call it easy. It is a good family hike. Great places to stop and relax along the way. Don't forget bug spray and bear spray. Morrell Creek drainage is known for grizzly bears.

A day-hike that is suitable for all skill levels, Morrell Falls lets you experience several different aspects of a forest. From tight-in trees, to marshy open areas. Starts out rather dry, then very moist as you approach the falls. Depending on time of year, the volume of water over the falls will vary. With high water in the spring, you can also count on the roads being muddy as well. Lastly - mosquitoes are HORRIBLE in June and July.

Open year round and allows for off leash dogs. Wear tracks in the winter, the ground can be a little icy.

6ish miles from parking to the falls. Beautiful woods and the water features are a wonderful surprise as you go along the trail. The tree roots are plentiful and large. We rate this trail better than moderate for bikes and moderate for hikes. Kids would not enjoy a bike ride here, but a hike would be fun. The falls are worth every hard earned pedal and step of the one mile elevation change. The round trip took us about 2.5 hours on our bikes.
