The Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest in Washington is a National Forest extending more than 140 miles along the western slopes of the Cascade Range from the Canada–US border to the northern boundary of Mount Rainier National Park.

We loved this trail and hiked to the falls. It was beautiful and would definitely go again. We hiked a total of about 8 miles.

Only could get a few miles down the road from mtn loop till I found the road blocked off due to a washout

the trail was easy to find with the picture of the gate already posted. The issue was there was no markings to follow. One trail followed along the stream and ended, the other trail went up to the bridge that didnt have any signs for zig zag. We went left and walked accross the bridge and say multiple rock climbers but the trail was a road. Some cool views but without the signs we didn't do the intended hike.

Did this hike over the summer, so great and good tree coverage from the sun..and the best ending to a hike is a lake.... to swim in!

It’s been snowing all week and the full hike (from beginning of Denny Creek rd) was just beautiful. The falls were half way frozen and it was great to experience. I went alone so it was nice to see a decent amount of people there.

They told me to leave because of my horse

Started at 6:30, the beginning was well maintained and packed down. About a mile in the trail becomes very faint, snow becomes thick and difficult to traverse through and there is a various amount of different side trails that can confuse hikers without GPS. Around the 3 mile mark my group turned around due to weak trail appearance. Maybe wait a couple more weeks for this one. Snow shoes very much acquired. Be aware of possible avalanche danger

Beautiful day up there! A little muddy in places but not bad at all.

Roads were closed on both sides. Ended up hiking a total of 8 gorgeous miles today. The wagon trail is not open, don't take that as a loop back as one of the signs suggests... you'll end up walking through very deep snow. TAKE ICE CLEATS! The whole main trail is compacted snow and ice. One hiker slid down the hill at the falls today but was able to get back up. The trail right at the water fall is steep and icy, be extremely cautious. GORGEOUS hike though!!!

Nice flat trail, great place to bring kids and dogs. Not much traffic on a beautiful sunny day!

It was ok there were some good view points

very well worth the hike...and very beautiful

Plenty of snow on the way up to the falls. Even more on the way down the loop. Poles and spike were needed. Fun trail.

Steep hike but not difficult. A lot of snow at the top and too slippery for just tennis/hiking boots. Had to turn around because we didn’t have the best shoes for compact snow and ice.

great pit stop while backpacking through the alpine lakes for flyfishing.

Did about 2 miles today, short and easy hike. Winter Wonderland for sure! Enjoyed it a lot.

Steep hike, particularly in the winter with lots of snow. Bring snowshoes if going in the winter, but you can make it without if you know what you’re doing. Amazing views on a clear day. Even a frozen lake is worth it.

This is a great trail highly recommend doing it, it is moderately hard however the view is definitely worth it!

Hiked from Exit 47 at road closure. 7 miles RT. Approximately 5 miles of it is walking on the closed road that runs beside I90. Road was compact snow with some deep snow areas but there was an area worn down in the deeper snow areas. I wore microspikes and would recommend them. It was a beautiful day and I was pleasantly surprised to have the falls to myself. The falls are not completely frozen but the surrounded by beautiful ice.

Hardest but most rewarding and beautiful hike I've ever done

Amazing views! Short, steep hike

Easy, flat trail - more of a walk than a hike. A good place to take your dog.

This was a very nice, mellow hike that leaves you feeling like you did some work/got a healthy dose of exercise. Today there was snow on the trail (both soft and hard packed) and few people which made for a peaceful winter wonderland. You may want yaktrax for extra traction and icy areas.

Road remains closed so expect the 7.1 mile round trip walk in the woods. Started early in the morning and the road was icy with plenty of grooves from snowmobile tracks. Microspikes will serve you well and some warm boots. Snowshoes are not necessary, though if you want to carry them for weight, go for it. Trail is easy to find and has compact snow to lead you to the falls. The falls was flowing and plenty of icicles to add depth to the photos. This morning was not slushy and the ice looks like it’ll stay. Dress warm, gloves hats, you name it because it definitely is chilly by the falls. We passed 64 people and about 30 cars parked on the sides on the way back. Make sure to do the hike early (before 8-9AM) especially on weekends to beat crowds and get photos you want.

Went here specifically for the snow and there was lots way before the trail head!! We didn't even make it to the trail head due to high levels of snow and fallen tree a mile from the trail head. But we got out and played in the snow for a little bit after getting unstuck and turning around. Hopefully it's better in a couple weeks :)

Did this trail again for the second weekend in a row. While it was once again great, we were wondering why we were the only ones on it two weekends in a row. As we were leaving, we noticed a small sign off to the side of the trail saying the trail was closed until December 31, 2018!

I went summer July/2017 and we started 6am and when we come down so many people was come up. suggest early start better!
