Awesome hike on a rainy day. Got pretty wet and muddy, slipped a couple times. My crew was pretty quick and we went to the falls and back in just over 2 hours. Ran some of the way. Falls are beautiful. Lots of area to dip in the water on a hot day. Interesting trees, and not just the big cedar. Loved it.

This is a great and fun hike, varying terrain and not too difficult. The trail isn't marked as well once you get past Big Cedar but keep your eye out and you'll be fine.

This is an awesome hike. We had light packs and did it in 3.5 hours with a quick dip in the waterfall. Such a beautiful reward at the end

This is mainly a mountain biking area and the first part of the trail is shared but not an issue.
It's a great hike with some ups and downs and beautiful old growth forest. It's 12 km return to the parking lot.
The Falls are beautiful and the rocks are very slippery so be careful. The other creeks were dried up when we went but it would be interesting to see them in full force.
I imagine snowshoeing would be great here.
We parked in the 3h lot and did not get ticketed. Maybe luck?

A lovely easy hike through the forest. No views are available on this hike however the crystal clear waters of Kennedy Falls are worth the hike.

We saw some trail runners with their dogs, if you do want to run it just be aware of the many loose rocks and trees roots along the path.

Just a side note, recently the car park at the trail-head has limited the duration to 3 hours. This trail can be complete in under 3 hours however if you're looking to take your time I'd suggest parking in the neighborhood near by (a lot of the parking is permit based so just be careful)

Great hike. Variety in terrain. Relatively quiet, a low traffic trail when we did it in Mid May. Highly recommend
