Very limited parking and the few spots there are to park are about 1/2 mile away from the trail. Very simple trail and the waterfall is right off to the left about 2 miles up. The waterfall is definitely worth the hike!

No actual trail, just on a logging gravel road. No parking. Lots of horse poop. Pretty falls, but that's about the only positive thing to say about this hike.

Beautiful falls, not a good trail. Like it's been stated, it's more of a gravel road taking you to a good swimming hole.
Parking is terrible...

This trail is more of a gravel road for cars that people walk on. About two miles in there is a really beautiful waterfall that makes an equally great swimming spot, but that's the best part of the whole trail. The Lee Falls description says it's 7.5 miles, but really it's 3ish miles out until you hit a no trespassing sign, and then if you keep going you have about another mile until you hit a federal no trespassing sign with a huge gated fence. That's where we turned around. There are power lines for most of the trail because of the water regulation plants beyond the no trespassing signs we encountered.

There really isn't anything exciting past that first waterfall to be frank... If you're looking for a good hike, this isn't the place. This is more of a short hike to the waterfall so you can go swimming in the deep pool below it.

As far as parking is concerned, THERE IS NO PARKING BY THE TRAIL HEAD. THERE ARE "NO PARKING" SIGNS EVERYWHERE. If you want to go to this waterfall, I suggest going to the trail head (a big yellow gate) and turning around. Drive back up the hill you just came down until you find an alcove to pull out on. The little dirt patches on the side of the road are around a quarter of a mile away from the trail head, but that's the best parking you're going to get.

I enjoyed the hike but was pretty disappointed we had to turn around early. If I went back I would only pack to go swimming. I WOULD recommend this trail.. just please be aware of the parking situation and that the trail is cut short by fences, so you really should only go for swimming and viewing the gorgeous waterfall. Have fun!

No place to park so couldn't take the hike. WA county needs to maintain road and create parking.
