The view from the road is awesome. As of Sept 17, the foot bridge up stream is under maintenance.

This was a cool little Canyon to check out. Unfortunately, the day I was there, the foot bridge that crosses the Box Canyon was under construction. Nice little kick back area and look out area.

Nice trail with easy foot paths the whole way through, and lots of water with creeks, rivers and waterfalls. Enjoyable hike. We took the Wonderland trail from Box Canyon to Martha Falls as an out & back hike.

Some construction going on so and in and out trail now. Water rushing through the canyon was beautiful, and the easy walk through moss covered fields of boulders should not be passed up!

Quick walk. The water below is stunning to see. Great views of Rainier and Adams on a clear day.

Good little warm up close to the road. Half the trail was closed for construction but didn’t feel I missed out on too much of the other side

This easy trail rewards you with wildflowers and gorgeous views. We saw many trillium in bloom in mid June.

Easy fast hike, cool view of the canyon. South section of trail is currently inpassable due to fallen trees. Use as out and back.

Short, easy walk and the canyon is crazy awesome. It's basically a slot canyon through here, but I only gave it 4 stars due to lack of visibility. The tree cover is pretty thick and it's hard to get a full look at it.

Very short trail, but it is definitely worth the small walk over there! The Box Canyon is awesome! Highly recommended!
