Beautiful waterfall as a reward for a hike around one of the trails. The waterfall was not on that particular trail, but a little ways down the road. It's an easy, fast hike to get to. Great for families with small children as they can play in the water during warmer weather.

more of a Stairway than a trail but the waterfall is a good place for kids and dogs to play around in.

A short and family-friendly hike to a nice waterfall. The trail starts near the entrance to the visitor center parking area. Be sure to climb down from the deck for a closeup view of the falls.

Short hike to an interpretive Rock Garden which is wheelchair accessible and further hike to the Upper Cascade Falls which are impressive. Park at far left end of VC parking lot for easiest access and take the trail across the street. Nice decking for a picnic at the falls.
