Waterfall at the end is very pretty. Nice flowing water scapes along the hike. Workers are actively putting gravel on the trail. The latter part of the trail had a couple fun stream crossings we had to navigate. There’s no real easy walkable path at the end to get close to the falls, so you can navigate a small steep hill or go through the cold water. It’s pretty and I felt worth getting a bit wet. Nice forest views. Lots of rocks and tree roots at the last quarter of the trail. Shouldn’t be too hard a trail if you’re a consistent walker. Elevation wasn’t bad either. Would hike again. Would bring snacks, water, hiking boots. Be careful on wood planks when wet. Quite slippery at times.

Stunning 73 degree day in Sitka - the water looked so inviting I was about ready to jump in!!

Easy flat hike along the Indian River. Very cool waterfall at the end. Very well maintained trail.
