Nice short hike. We went a few weeks ago on a cloudy weekend and only saw a other few groups.

Started just after 7 am and avoided all the people. Appreciated the view up the top, and all the old growth Douglas Fir and Cedars.

Sehr schöner Wald und wunderschöne Wasserfälle. Jedoch bei dem oberen Wasserfall (Kamerasymbol) aufpassen!! Absturzgefahr und nicht Kinder geeignet. Empfehlenswerte kurzer Spaziergang.

Cypress Falls is a basic "hike", it might be better described as a "quick walk". However, it's a classic for the area as the waterfall is quite spectacular. The hike itself is very easy and over worked. Easy, good little trail. Don't spend more than an hour.

Beautiful trail, several paths but alltrails alerted me when off trail. Go past the trail to the photo view point (shown on map) on the right of the gravel road at the end. Beautiful view point.

Super cool. Keep going up after the first falls, to the service road, take right and you’ll see another falls. Easy hike but pretty cool falls. Careful on the edges.

short easy hike to a nice view. if you continue you can hike to the river (top of the waterfall) where there is another view point of a smaller waterfall. You can also scramble up the river rocks to go deeper into the canyon if the water level is low enough.

A very short trail which is alright if you’re passing by the falls to another trail like Eagle Lake. I’d recommend going a bit further to get closeup to another waterfall (look up Cypress Falls Lookout Loop).

Lovely quiet trail, great to see the falls and to get the opportunity to paddle in the rock pools. The trip wasn’t super clear so it was a bit hard to find our way at times.

Great trail but it is Mislabeled as an "Easy" trail. It is Moderate with some strenuous places when going up over roots and navigating over small rocks on the hill, and back down again. If anyone has balance issues, knee issues, avoid it. It is beautiful and quiet (no road noise). We stayed to the West side (did not cross the bridge to walk up East side) which makes it easier to find bright orange trail marker tags on trees. Good-sized dirt parking lot was mostly empty when I was there Tues. at noon. Did not look like much on street parking in neighborhood with winding streets adjacent. Tennis courts but no bathroom.

I wouldn’t call it easy. More of a moderate level trail, with uphill and downhill climbs.

There was not enough signs for the right side of the trail. It's better to stick with the left side one which is easier. It's definitely worth it to hike up to the top for the view of the bigger falls there.

A really nice trail with a great forest setting. Waterfalls and a great trail. Huge cedar trees and true wilderness hike. Go early and beat the crowds.

The trail was absolutely pretty. It had everything, from dense greens to little creeks and of course the falls. No stairs so be mindful to wear the right shoes for some inclines. This was worth the trip.

Super easy incline on this walk/hike to the falls. Have made the mistake of crossing the bridge over the river and winding up in a completely different place. Beautiful & quiet gem of a place!

Read Clare M's review, I screenshot it to use as a guide. I did the loop and started on the east side (not marked well) I got lost a few times and had to backtrack. It was worth it to see the waterfall from both sides though. Once I reached the West side it was much easier. I probably took longer than most people with getting lost and taking my time. Stick to the West side.
