Came from slightly Eastern parking lot. Large family near the main falls and another family a little further down. Easy walk. But lots of bugs in the face.

HikingGreat!

Short and cool scene, there were people hogging up spots on the rocks sun bathing so it was a little annoying that they were in the way of our pictures and made it uncomfortable as you climbed down to the Pool of the waterfall, but that’s just me being picky.

Paved and short. Very modest incline and the falls live up to their name. Worth a stop

Easy trail that has a beautiful waterfall! We did this trail after stopping at grizzly falls, which is about 15 min from this trail. Trail is paved and accessible!

Fire has ruined this hike. It was all ash and we close the train after about a mile. I’d skip it this season.

Amazing views. One thing about driving to this location is a high climb and hugs the mountains with winding roads. So be sure to have your car prepared. Saw two vehicles not make it. A short walk on a paved road. Fall is gorgeous but not recommended to jump in the water as the current will pull you under. Please pick up trash. There is a trash can in parking area.

Pretty much a short, paved trail up to the falls. Pretty waterfall, but not really a hike. We actually hiked from Zumwalt Meadow once during the day, and the actual trail at sunset later that day.

Getting to the falls is a breeze. After leaving your car in the Roaring River Falls parking lot, just follow the trail though the forest and you arrive in about 5 minutes Roaring River Falls cute and clever name

Hard to get more bang for your ten minute hike than this one! Falls were torrential due to snow and rain. Don’t miss this one if in this area! Light traffic today too!
