Easy hike through Douglas Fir and Hemlock to Henline Falls and remnants of old mining from the 1930's. The trail meanders through young Douglas-fir and Western Hemlock forest. The trail ends at Henline Falls. Here you will find remnants of old mining from the 1930's. A mine adit was built into the solid rock wall and goes back in about 1500 feet.

Went on this trail today (4/5/17). At the sign in box, take the trail to the left. There are like one or two forks in the trail, always go left. The hike is very gradual uphill all the way to the falls, which seems to come out of nowhere. The trail itself wasn't (in my opinion) the most scenic, but the falls are absolutely incredible. Pictures could not do it justice. The water is pristine, blue/ green crystal color. You can get right up to the waterfall. I am pretty overweight and the trail was very easy for me to hike. Once you get to gravel, the road is pretty bad...but just drive slow and you'll be fine!

Trailhead:
The roads get a little rough a mile before the trailhead. Note that the trailhead is not labeled, but does have a wilderness bulletin by it.

Trail:
I just completed this on 3/30. The trail had recently been cleared of branches, and didn't appear to have any landslides. Super easy trail, welcome for all ages.

Waterfall:
The waterfall sits behind the remains of an old mine structure from the 1930s. There's an abandoned mine next to the fall, but it's tough to get to currently, with all the rainfall adding to it. The mine is about 1500 feet deep.

Overall:
Great easy family hike through the woods. Pretty fall, and easily accessible!

There is supposedly an old mine but I did not see. Coming back in the summer to look for it. The waterfall is beautiful but it was spraying so bad I couldn't get as close I wanted. Easy trail though just kind of off the road there is no sign. But a nice hidden gem.

Road is recently cleared, and the trail is in great shape, no snow and the falls are roaring! The mine is such a fun addition, great for kids!

I expected it to be just another waterfall but I found Henline Falls particularly spectacular. The drive there was lovely too.

Super short and simple hike. little water fall is nice. There is a little pool at the bottom of the falls. If you're the first one there its all good but when people see they can hike there It can get pretty busy for such a small area.
