Beautiful park and the trail is nice, but part of the loop is closed and it was difficult to navigate around to do the full loop. The falls are nice, but be prepared to see a lot of people there....it was overly crowded once we reached the falls and we didn't stay long.

I did part of this trail along with the orange blazed ridge trail last weekend. The part of this being called rootball is currently closed (it's the same blue blaze as cascade, but is the section up the valley to west)

Tried to access based on directions in the app. Was unable to locate a proper entrance. Anyone have an exact address they recommend to start the trail? Really looking forward to it
