The path is long and narrow at point no more then 12" wide. The mountain views of the hood canal along with sites of the open wilderness are worth the hike. I spent two days down at Jupiter Lake the hike down and up are very physically demanding and due to the dense vegetation require good knowledge of map reading or a very good GPS. There is no direct path down or up with a lot of wet steep drop offs. Spring time when vegetation is less thick ,may be a better time then when I went in late Sept .Weather changed from sunny and warm to rain wind and snow in the blink of an eye.

Short trek from the main road, easily done with small children. The waterfall was so beautiful and relaxing. I plan on going again and again!

Ran on this trail and it was pretty well maintained and through beautiful forest. Did both donkey trail and maple valley. Streams all dried up early September but I bet it's gorgeous in early winter!

We still can't figure out why this is rated as moderate. It's a short, easy walk to the falls along a stream with moss filled trees. The falls are incredible. I guess the moderate part would be if you want to get right up to the falls...it is very rocky and you have to climb a bit.

Easiest trail I ever been on but the view is out this world.

Awesome waterfall very easy hike!

Easy trail, beautiful falls, wonderful swim!

Nice hike. We went through the Maplevalley, which has very nice views, steep grades. End of July and all streams/waterfalls are dried up.
