Nice little trail. Impressive waterfalls. Decently steep. Muddy at the base of the falls

Such a hidden gem, this hike was so beautiful, steep on the way up but definitely manageable as it’s such a short distance.

Great short hike to see some falls (about half an hour round trip). You can get close to the falls but best to be wearing a rain jacket for that.

Beautiful little hike to stretch your legs. Amazing view of the river and the waterfall at the end. Nice easy hike down but a bit of leg burner going back up.

Beautiful little hidden trail. Took about 15 minutes to get down to the Falls. Well worth the view! It is a bit slippery down at bottom which can be a bit dangerous for young children. Be prepared to get wet, highly recommend rain jackets. The hike back up is quite uphill, go at your own pace.

Fab trail. Open today (June first) best out houses you’ll ever see and a pretty steady hike. All down then a climb back up but done in 10 minutes down and 15 back up, moderate fitness.

It’s steep on the way down and along the river and falls be mindful with small children. Also know that those that aren’t fit will have a bit of a workout hiking back up to the parking lot. That all being said I ran down and timed things perfect as it rained hard last night and the falls are rocking! What a wicked roadside gem that is totally worth the stop. also the hemlock and cedar trees along with the vibrant miss make it a great must do trail.

Steep way to go down and come back up. Quite slippery close to the waterfall.

A short steep descent to a waterfall. There are better falls in the area, but this one is worth the little investment of time to get to it.

Great Trail. Not a lot of other people around. Can go right down to the bottom. Little bit steep at first but not too bad.

Steep downhill trail to start. The falls were awesome! The hike back up was a little more work. Good spot to stop if you need to stretch your legs and use a washroom.

Eine sehr schöne und kurze Wanderung zum Füße-Vertreten zwischendurch, die sich auch mit lockerem Schuhwerk gut laufen lässt Der Wasserfall lohnt sich wirklich und ist etwas Besonderes.

A short hike, steep at the beginning. It was raining the day we went so everything was really slippery and muddy. But totally worth it.

Quick, easy hike. We have seen plenty of waterfalls on our trip but this one was the best so far. Big, fast and beautiful! Worth the stop.

Nice short in and out trail. Steep inclines down at the start of the trail. No place to really sit for a lunch break. The mist off the falls makes everything wet. Bring something waterproof to sit on a log nearby and hopefully no ones there. Heavy traffic in July. Go early.

We took our 11 month old in a carrier as this trail is not stroller friendly. The decent down is easy and there are even some stairs along the way, but the hike back up is a bit of work. The mist from the falls was refreshing but expect some mud at the bottom as a result. A short hike with a beautiful view, definitely worth the stop!

We had been in the car for a while and this hike was the perfect opportunity to stretch our legs! We ended up jogging it after the steep decent. It took 7 minutes to get to the voracious falls! Stunning! Kids liked getting wet in the mist from the waterfall. We jogged back up and it took 7 minutes as well.

Stunning falls views at the end! Short but worth it, if average fit, around 10 min down, 20 min up. There are several steep sections. Trail is wide with little exposure. We went end of May and conditions were great, not too warm or cold and not really crowded. Small parking lot.

Easy descent all the way to the waterfall, popular trail (only one opened in the glacier national park 2019-05-16) very short but nice view of the river. Perfect spot for diner or a quick stop.
