Beautiful hike. Opposite of most because to get to the falls you are climbing down and to get back to the trail head you climb up. It is steep, I found myself struggling a bit at the end as I was climbing uphill. The views were definitely worth it though! Great waterfall and if you are feeling more adventurous you can wander to the second or even third tier of the falls. Its a difficult climb to get to the very top, so if it is rainy/wet or you are just not super confident I would stick with the first or second tier. I did this hike with friends and our combined 3 dogs (2 shiatsu's and a Siberian husky) and they all handled it like a champ.

Short and sweet hike! This was one of our stops along the way to the hanging rock hike. The forest is beautiful and you get to the waterfall in no time on this one. It's quite easy to go off the beaten path at the end to explore the waterfall closer too.

Beautiful day and beautiful trail. Lots of hikers out with dogs. The falls are beautiful but you need to stand in the right spot to see the salmon.

Great day hike. Well maintained and easy to follow. You have a view of the river the whole time. Had a great time with two dogs. Saw lots of rafters on the river and a couple other hikers along the way.

Both Toothpick and Catwalk are beautiful trails. If you keep going on Toothpick to Land Mine trail, it's a gorgeous- short hike, not a loop though. I think one of the prettiest trails in the area, shady and cool for the most part.

we really liked this trail. 2 adults and an 8 year old. we are glad we didn't bring our puppy though. Too Rocky to have to hold a pulling leash the whole time.

Loved the hike. Very nice scenery. Has some steep sides so keep kids close.
