Short and sweet was how someone described it and I agree. You walk on a cliff next to water so that was a fun surprise.

We enjoyed this hike more than Sol Duc Falls, but only because it offered much more serenity than the extremely busy Sol Duc Falls trail. We also found that the trees and moss (things you’d associate with rainforest) were more impressive on this trail than Sol Duc Falls. With that said, Sol Duc Falls is still worth doing, it’s very beautiful itself and the waterfall/bridge combo at the end is great, but you’d be selling yourself short if you also didn’t stop and do this leisurely 20 minute stroll, it’s a great bang for your buck!

This place is magic. The old trees, the soft, mossy ground..... it’s beautiful. I could have spent the day just watching the light come through the canopy. We met a couple leaving as we were entering the short loop, but never saw anyone else. We arrived around 9:30 and the lighting was just gorgeous!The road is close by, but there was little traffic so the road noise didn’t ruin the magic. The drive off of 110 was pretty as well with lots of places to stop and hop around on rocks by the river. It’s worth the detour if you’re traveling along 110!

Perfect trail! It’s so peaceful and not many people around. We got married in the middle of the forest on this trail! Such a magical spot!

This was such a magical and special place. No one on the trail beautiful views and so quite and serene. This is a must do if you are here. There are not a lot of trails in this part of the park . But even though this is really short it is so worth it
