Simple trail for me and my 6 year old. A bit muddy and some large steps required holding onto roots. Nice waterfall. You could probably get in if it was warm.

closed til the 30th due to mountain goat relocation.

This hike was tough. It says it’s only 5 miles, but from the lower trail it was 7.34 miles. Elevation gain was about 3100 feet. Very rocky the last mile and difficult. View was awesome. We even caught the mountain goats before they re located them! The chipmunks were very “friendly”.

Great hike, I didn't think it was overly difficult. I completed it along with my wife and daughters aged 7 and 9. medium traffic on the trail, but it was a Saturday. the views at the top were amazing. I highly recommend this hike.

Wasn't able to complete because someone was firing guns off not far from the trail and it was freaking our dogs out. Hoping to go back without them next week and try again. Beautiful trail for the first mile that we saw of it.

The road up wasn’t bad pretty well maintained, but once you turn on to NFS Rd 2530 you will find some deep potholes. The road narrows into one lane so be cautious of other vehicles as the corners have overgrown vegetation too. The trail has a steady up hill pace till you’re just about around the corner. The falls wasn’t heard till I rounded the corner. As you approach there is a split in the trail... one section continues up to a sitting bench *but has parts washed out so watch your step* the other heads down toward the base of the falls. The lower trail requires some climbing over downed logs and slippery rocks to get across the creek, but if you manage to do that you can trek up the far side halfway up the falls to the middle point/ water hole.

NOTE: If you start at the upper trail head, hike is 8.2 miles round trip and 3,000 ft. in elevation gain. There's decent parking (we went on a tuesday. Weekend parking is probably limited) and a bathroom at the trailhead. Amazing hike!!! We had views of Rainer, Baker, the Cascade Mt. range, the Hood Canal and Seattle!! Took us about 2.5 hours to summit which consisted of constant up hill switch backs. Not super difficult if you pace yourself. RECOMMENDATIONS: bug spray for horse flies!!! They are aweful and persistant. And a jacket for the summit cause it gets windy!

Steep trail up, nice and shaded. Took 1.5hrs up and 1hr down. Beautiful views from the south lookout point

Do not go on this trail if you are allergic to bees! I was stung through my pants in the way to the lake and the. Terrorized the whole way back with them swarming around my head. The lake itself is very pretty. Nice place to eat lunch and rest.

Started the trail about 7:05am from the upper trail starting point and got to the top around 8:40am ish. This trail is the hardest trail I’ve ever been on and I’ve been on quite a lot of hikes. The view at the top was worth it! But it was cloudy looking down below. The sun was shining with blue sky at the top. If you go, make sure you start early. There was a lot of ppl coming up the trail around 9-10am as I was coming down the trail.

Tubal Cain trail to Tull canyon trail. Went to see the airplane wreckage. The first three miles of tubal Cain were gently sloped and in good condition. Till canyon is steep and rocky but worth it.

Beautiful and serene hike with an emerald blue lake and and easy trail; extremely quiet place with not many people on the trail

good trail and not that hard. the lake is VERY low compared to normal. Great beginner hike.

Great hike but the overcast kept us from seeing the mountain and sound views. Lots of wildflowers in bloom and quiet forest canopy towards the lower trailhead. The trail crew has done an excellent job maintaining the trail.

Beautiful, strenuous, cloudy at the top, but totally worth it!

The hiking trail is a great workout for me and my 11 years old. we both hiked all the way to the lake and it was amazing.

There were quite a few switchbacks, but the view of the lake at the end was worth it, we could have stayed for hours just staring. Plus the water was very refreshing!
