I prefer this falls to Marymere falls AND is a stroll vs hike.

This is my favorite walk in Klaloch! Enjoy a mildly downward sloping (paved) trail through lavish bushes on your way toward the most beautiful view of the ocean. If you are lucky to watch the sunset at Ruby Beach, you will start to believe that magical places still exist.

Hike was decent but the best part is the Devil’s Punchbowl! Go left on the trail instead of through the tunnel and you can jump of the bridge and swim in crystal clear water! Even though it was very cold we had a blast and stayed just at that part for almost an hour!

This was a great day hike, you can go as far as you like depending on your time & stamina, but I highly recommend going at least 2.5 miles in to get the best views. Also when you get to the train tunnel, opt to go around to the left on the trail, instead of through, you get AMAZING views!

Thanks to all the WTA crew trails folks for all their hard work! The trail looks great and is more enjoyable. There are lots of woodland wildflowers, massive fern gardens, and plenty of places for the dogs to get a drink along the way.

Very very good upkeep! There’s a couple uphill parts, but overall a pretty easy hike. We thought you could overlook the whole lake, but we only saw a small stream which was also pretty. Beautiful moss covered trees!

Great hike and trail in very good condition. Thank you trail crew! Next year want to go two weeks earlier to catch the Trillium blooming!

Great walk with beautiful views. We stopped at the Rankin tunnel to eat lunch. A doe walked by on the trail during that time.

great dog on leash trail. May 24th there was still a significant amount of snow above 5000ft. Lake was 90% frozen over beautiful views. The majority of the trail is moderate with a few hard spots. Great small waterfalls too.

Life is Great

As others have said, a very easy 5 min walk to the falls. It is a lovely spot. We visited in May in the late afternoon and the sun was shining almost directly on the falls. Definitely worth a visit.

No closures this weekend 4/27. The weather was great. A little breezy but the sun was out. Did 10 miles out and back. The trail is dry, maybe a few wet spots but nothing significant. I grew up doing this trail as a kid and it shocked me how much it has changed and I'm kind of sad about it. Not alot of traffic as I started at 9am and was the only car in the parking lot. Over half full when I returned at 1pm. Remember people when starting at East beach go to the left at the 1st tunnel so you don't miss the bridge. Opposite if you start at the other end. I was stopped several times asking where it was lol Overall a great day on this hike since they changed it all

A very short "hike" but worth doing to see the falls

Lots of downed trees not cleared yet and some muddy spots, easy to go around or over though. Only hiked up to the creek, this summer we will try crossing it. Beautiful views of the lake.

Peabody Creek Trail is back in shape after a rough winter that included a historic windstorm and historic lowland snowfall. There are a few small muddy/boggy places and/or seeps, but for the most part the trail is merely wet, not muddy. The trail has been cleared by ONP trail crews, and there is fresh-cut treefall on both sides of the trail. It looks like a bomb went off in some places. The extent of storm damage is a sight in and of itself. One section of relatively new trail was entirely washed out (after the first big log bridge) and the old trail was partly reconditioned by trail crews, if a bit narrow and uneven. The worst of the mud has dried up, but there are a few spots where trees went down, popping up root balls and creating either a large dip or a "climb over" bump in the trail. They are passable with minimal effort. Be cautious on the third big log bridge (the narrow one). It rocks, side to side. Don't lean on the handrail or it will shift. Trillium are blooming in massive trailside bunches as of late April. Bleeding heart are just starting to bloom and should be in full bloom by mid May. Ferns and False Solomon Seal are just coming up. Despite the easy-access trailhead at the National Park visitor center, this is a moderate-difficulty trail, with several steep climbs and a total of about 10K round trip. It's a good training trail for longer, more difficult hike, for physically fit visitors who want a generous sample of gorgeous lowland mountain forest and creek valley , but not great for new hikers, families with small children or for people with mobility issues.

Very peaceful and beautiful walk along the beach. We spent a little under an hour exploring here then had a nice breakfast at the Creekside Restaurant.

Not much of a hike but a short walk to a wonderful waterfall! Nice spot for breakfast/lunch

Super easy nicely paved trail; gorgeous falls

As others have said, this is an extremely nice, easy and convenient trail for all to see the waterfall. It is also handicap accessible. The trail is paved all the way to the falls with a nice deck that wraps around the hillside that allows you the ability to see the falls without getting wet. The site also has restroom facilities.
