If you’re attempting to make it to the top, downloading some form of gps is essential! Lots of snow and no consistent trail makers. Made it to the peak 5/28/2020, but make sure to have proper snow hiking gear.

Parking lot was empty when we arrived. Restroom at trailhead closed currently due to COVID. The hike was wonderful, we went up around 3 1/2 miles and then we started hitting snow. Trail turned into a small stream and really muddy after that. We didn’t bring our pole baskets so we had lunch, and then headed back.

Great quick trail! A bit muddy from the rains but it was easy enough for a family of 5 to have a great time at. Gorgeous hike!

Nice, easy trail for a pleasant escape from the world. Plenty of offshoots to keep you occupied for as long as you wish to wander. A little muddy in places but not bad at all.

For all those interested right now, the road is currently blocked by snow! There are some cars that parked 5miles before the trailhead and probably hiked from there. Hope you find this useful and don't waste your time!

LOVE IT! This is my favorite place and trail in Washington. We take our kids every summer. Beautiful, peaceful, in the clouds experience.

We parked where the snow started and hiked up the road in the snow (3ft deep or more) and made it 3 miles up without hitting the trailhead....great workout but will wait for the snow to melt and attempt it again!

Worth every sore muscle. The views are absolutely incredible. It's been several years since I've been up there but the views are etched in my brain. Of course, I went with a girlfriend and a bottle of wine and a warm body to snuggle with didn't hurt.

Like a previous reviewer said, this trail head is a couple hundred feet beyond the wooden car bridge. Pull over to your right where the shoulder widens and the trail head is pretty obvious from there. It is mostly flat on the way to the falls. When you get to the falls, there are some fun paths closer to the falls, going up is easier than going down. Heading down was particularly muddy this time of year and the trail was fairly slippery. Definitely need proper footwear. All trails says this hike is only .6 miles, which seems about right to the actual falls. However, if you want to see them up close, or walk up the trail or down to the lower falls themselves, you will be getting in more walking that that. Overall, this was a fun quick hike.

5/9/2020 There was a Subaru “stuck” in the middle of the road in a snow drift and the owner left it there instead of waiting for help (lots of trucks up there would have been happy to give a helpful tug), which blocked the roadway for all. There was, however, a tree blocking the road not long after, so whatevs, I guess. I’ll add a picture of where the tree blocks the road (in blue) so people can decide if they want to add the extra mileage to get up. There was still a lot of snow, but these warm temperatures might quickly change that. On a clear day, this hike is lovely! But the conditions were a little obnoxious today.

This is an awesome view! We went up this in early may and you aren’t able to drive up to the trailhead so we had to walk 3.5 miles up the road to the trial head. The whole trail was snow/ slush went up in hiking boots and it was difficult but can be done highly recommend either snow shoes or gators.

Amazing trail in the summer, just went up yesterday, I’d be careful there are patches of compacted snow that are hard to pass through, also there are downed trees that have blocked the road. Past that point it’s all snow.

Perfect adventure to the waterfall. Use gps to find it. Tree has a pink ribbon to where the trail starts

Incredible. Packed snow, great for snowshoeing. Went on a blue sky day, could not have had better views! 360° of snowy mountain ranges. Definitely worth your time on a sunny day.

Trail is not marked from the road, lots of mud, and had to search to find the trail leading down to the falls. But overall the hike was beautiful and a great adventure! Would recommend.

I drove up to Heather Meadows last spring to just clear my head. It truly is beautiful up there. I didn't get a chance to walk the trails at all but I did get to see picture lake and the waterfall thats just down the road. Was a wonderful way to process a rough week.

Such a wonderful experience of snowshoeing!!! Amazing view!!!!!!!!!

Undoubtedly a gem of Watcom County & Mt. Baker Wilderness. Incredible how diverse these mountains become throughout each season. Would recommend using caution on the drive up from Dec. - Apr. road can be icy or snowed in.

Beautiful winter weather conditions; clear most of the day up until artist point to where is was almost white out (polarized lens help see footprints/ridge line); perfect for a snow shoe hike

As usual, absolutely stunning! The snow is perfect for snowshoeing right now.

Great trail was only able to get to the 3.7 mile mark snow is deep. Always a great climb! I suggest snow shoes as of now with snow fall or you will not make it to the saddle.
