Beautiful falls. Trail was nice.

So beautiful! Very much worth the rough drive in.

I climb it today April 21 I absolutely love the trail 100%

A beautiful, quiet snowshoe with the dog. Saw not a soul on the pine marten or June lake trail that morning. Still about 3 feet of snow at the lake, had to break my own trail from about .25 miles out. I was surprised there was not more foot traffic, but glad for it. Roads plowed / all asphalt getting to marble mountain.

Perfect Sunday hike, a light rain and some muddy spots. But it is all well worth it when you get to the falls. Absolutely breathtaking! !

Great views, easy hike, beautiful roaring waterfall

If you hike the loop, eventually the trail splits. Someone has placed logs across the trail you should NOT take.

Could not get to trailhead, roads are still covered in 5+ ft of snow above 3000'

Looking forward to visiting again in after June.

This is legitimately the most beautiful waterfall I have ever seen. We went up here yesterday and it was such a lovely day and it was early enough in the season that it wasn't near as crowded as the other time I came here last summer, which was perfect. Highly recommend this to everyone!!!

Beautiful!!!

Beautiful old forest

Fun trail to walk, and great view!

Great first hike of the year. Dog friendly. Not too muddy when wet. A bit of snow remaining.

Great family hike!

Great for families. It’s a nice, flat, gravel trail filled with wildlife. We saw Hawks, Bald Eagles, and a Huron eat a snack.

Hiked on 03/30/18 and it was the first of 3 hikes that day. I also included the small spur that goes out to the view point on the east side of the mountain. If you do this too, the trail is in much better condition if you stay to the right as you descend. This goes down to a pretty steep cliff and the view of the valley is good. Wind mountain is speaking to you, the question is are you listening? Please pack out your toilet paper waste, sunflower seed hulls, dog poop bags and orange peels. I saw all of this garbage on my hike today.

We were the only people at the bottom. Complete solitude and serenity with amazing views of the mountain. Logs from the blast still float along the edges of Spirit Lake. While the hike is steep its only a mile down and a mile up. Take down some lunch and enjoy the beauty.

AMAZING HIKE!! I wouldn’t call it a moderate trail unless it’s referring to just the distance. Nice general grade for the most part but well worth it. Will go back in the warmer months for some swimming, there are some great pools I’d love to jump into.

By far the best hike I have ever been on, hands down!! Some of the biggest and most beautiful waterfalls around. I will recommend this hike to everyone from now on! Amazing!!!

Beautiful river of Klickitat, we had a great time hiking along you. Beautiful views and lots of green and flowers popping up. A Bald Eagle high in the sky, crows screaming for attention and only few people on this trail. Peacefull sunday...Could have been much worse today! Thank you.
Turn right just after the 1 mile sign...be careful.

Good hike through Oregon oak. Amazing fews on a clear day, today wasnt one of those days. Clouds were dropping and we met some light snow at the highest part of the trail. Near the end of the trail you will meet private property. The trail just stops. Last quarter of a mile can be skipped easily.

The primary winter route. I have done this route seven (7) times this 2017/2018) winter. On a nice day you will have an amazing view. Basic mountaineering gears will be essential for your safety. Have snowshoes and crampons ready as they may be the deciding factor between you making it to the summit rim or turning around. Some day you can just boot it to the summit but other days you will need snowshoes or crampons as you will posthole or slide on ice. Just be prepared and you will have a great time here.

The falls were beautiful, trails were in good condition but poorly marked. A must see adventure. Recommend taking a picture of the trail so you can tell where you are at.

Overgrown in spots but easy enough for the grandson to hike

Beautiful hike with great views of St. Helens. I went in mid March and there was still snow in some places.

Beautiful hike! I would definitely do it again, but in the summer. My car could only make it within 2 miles of the trailhead, so we walked up the road to get there. We had to stamp through the snow the entire time, which made for an adventure! However, I definitely recommend snowshoes if you hike in the winter months. The views from the top were stunning and made the trudging worth it in the end.

This trail had some amazing views at the top. The elevation gain is about 1300 ft in 1.4 miles but the struggle is worth it. It is also pretty busy on the weekends but a perfect place for a little picnic on the summit.
