Beautiful, lush, and worth the work! The path is a bit washed out and flooded at this time in April, so keep an eye on that. The waterfalls are amazing.

Great waterfall, just disappointed that the end of the trail was a gravel road, no grand view at the end.

Still enough snow that I was glad to have sturdy waterproof boots, but other than that I didn't need any special gear. Some areas are slippery where the snow has been packed down and started to ice over.

Nice easy hike. Great for beginners and kids.

Good hike. Great view of Mt. Rainier!

Beautiful waterfalls and river view. Family and dog friendly hike!

Great quick and easy hike. Went on a weekday not too much traffic.

Beautiful Views, trafficked, good season opener.

We did on St Patrick’s Day and loved it. It was challenging but enjoyable. Definitely want to bring poles and microspikes. Snowshoes not needed. Hit snow at 1.5 miles all the way to too. Great winter hike with not a lot of people. Probably better in winter as you get more views and less overgrowth on trail. Slower going in the snow. Took us about 2 hrs 45 minutes to the top. Trailhead can be a little tough to find. From parking lot climb up to logging road and stay right. Go further and then stay right at the next junction with the John Wayne Pioneer Trail/Iron Horse Trail Look. Go about 150 yards on left and look for cairn on the road and trees carved with Mt WA.

Went on a Friday afternoon, not very crowded was a short hike to falls. Was a decent hike up the hill after the falls to the junction with the John Wayne trail. Will do more often as we cross the pass.

Gorgeous view if you can make it to the top. Although without the GPS of AllTrails the trail can be a bit deceiving the last few miles. Wet snow first 2 miles and after you are rewarded with a winter wonderland scenery. Be aware of possible avalanche area that is close to the edge.

Beautiful sunny, warm day for a beautiful hike. Tons of people and dogs. The trip was still gorgeous though. Good season opener.

Great day for family hike. Busy so we parked on the road outside parking lot. Not muddy and river views were exceptional. A little up and down to get to falls but well worth the effort. Great for kids of all ages!

Mediocre hike with decent views of the waterfalls. May be better in the summer when you could walk down and enjoy sitting by the river. Not bad if you’re looking for a quick, short hike.

Beautiful waterfalls views.
Some mud, I would wear hiking shoes.
My puppy had a blast.
I would suggest going on a weekday, weekends seem to be packed with lots of people.

on Twin Falls Trail

Beautiful waterfalls. Great river views. Able to go to water's edge.

Views: Crystal clear river, old trees, two waterfalls.
Difficulty: Easy the inclines are spaced out and there's plenty of flat walking areas.
Trail conditions: Beginning of March- trail was muddy in some spots overall wasn't too bad. The trail didn't have as many people as Rattlesnake or Poo Poo Point.
Overall: This was a beautiful hike! We brought our dog, and he loved it!

Great hike! It was a bit muddy today but that is to be expected this time of year. (February 27th) We didn’t go to the very end but we made it up to the second fall lookout. Little to no snow on the ground. The trail is well maintained with a handful of sections of log stairs. The falls were incredible!

Snoeshoed from the road closure to the falls and back. 7.8 miles round trip. Great workout in wet snow.

Nice sunny day off work so I took advantage of the opportunity. I tried twice back in Nov of 2017 to get up to the lakes but there was too much deep snow. Today was a different story. Arrived at the trailhead at 0700, strapped on the snowshoes, and took off. It was 18 degrees out and calm. The trail has about a 4-5 foot of packed down snow. We used snowshoes all the way up to the lakes but really didn't need to. From lake #2 to #3 it's very steep and the traction from the snowshoes was helpful. We took them off at lake #3 and walked down slowly kicking in steps and that worked out much better. In these conditions a pair of Kathoola microspikes or K10 crampons would of worked better and been much lighter. But it's your call. It took us 2:40 to get from trailhead to lake #3 due to the good snow for travel.

Family friendly hike with rushing river views and, of course, the beautiful Twin falls. If you don't mind getting a bit muddy, then this makes for a great January outing.

I gave this hike five start for two reasons. One is the variety as it can be a beginner of an advanced snow shoe. If you dont make the third lake you can take away two stars. The third lake is basically a straight up journey for those who are advanced and and comfortable being in sketchy and steep terrain in the snow. We hit the hike on a cloudy day and Kendall Peak was visible at the third lake just below the cloud cover. The second lake is much easier to reach and where most should turn around.

Nice to be in the snow out of the rain today. Great trail for a beginner, immediate or advanced. Can make this trail as long or as short as you want. Snowshoes not needed but snow was coming down hard so used the as we got further in. Always beautiful in he Mountains. Lots of well behaved pups of leash ( : including mine.

Very nice trail with lots of snow as you get close to the top

Fairly well trafficked trail by families, dogs and hikers of all ages,shape and size. It’s a rocky well maintained trail that’s a bit muddy. But the mud is to be expected on a January rainy day. If you forget your Discover pass you can buy a day pass at the trail head with cash or at the Ace Hardware that’s 10mins before the trail.
