Getting There

PARKING NOTICE: All visitor vehicles must park off the county road (Mountain View Road). Any cars parked on the road will be ticketed and towed by the King County Sheriffs Department as the roadway needs to remain clear for emergency vehicles to pass. The start of the hike is on private property and all hikers should be respectful of parking rules, keep pets on leashes and keep their voices down so that the property owners will continue to allow access to this popular waterfall. A hike along old logging roads to 25 foot tall waterfall on Cherry Creek just outside of Duvall, WA. From the parking area, find a concrete block at the corner of Cherry Valley Rd and Mountain View Rd. From there take a short hike to a forest road. Follow this road-turned-trail and the corresponding junctions as follows. At one mile you'll cross Margaret Creek on a bridge, shortly after stay left at the first junction and right at the second (ignoring any grassy overgrown roads). After climbing a short hill, stay right at the third junction and proceed downhill. Where the road makes a sharp hairpin to the right at 1.5 miles, head left on a muddy track through the woods. This eventually turns back into a road. Keep following straight for another mile to Hannan Creek (large washout that has been leveled by large machinery). Just after crossing Hannan Creek, head right on a muddy two-track. The branch is just off the main trail slightly hidden from view by a large dirt pile. Following the sound of the falls. Visitors will reach a fire pit area overlooking the falls, with a short path leading to its base, a total of 2.7 miles from the trailhead. This trail is not well marked and crosses many other trails, so its best to use the map/GPS along the way.

No permit required. No toilet available at the trail head.

It was a good hike, a bit adventurous for kids due to the muddy trail. At the end the beautiful falls makes me more happy. You can go inside the water, sit or play in it.

Very muddy, some slightly steep parts but overall pretty accessible to easy hikers. Beautiful waterfalls at the end and you could totally spend a day here!

Very muddy!!!! We started at around 4:40 and left the trail around 7:30, after swimming at the falls for a while. Only encountered one other party of two people and two dogs. The trail is somewhat flat but pits of mud on every stretch

We went on a day just after some rain and it was SUPER muddy! But our dog loved it and it was a lot of fun. The trail gets pretty narrow at some point and with other hikers going both ways + the mud, it made passing while maintaining safe distancing a bit tricky unless you don’t care and just walk right through. Our dog loved the pool by the falls right at the end. Like some others pointed out, it’s a small area and if crowded can be a bit of a squeeze. Still worth doing!

I loved this hike even though it was muddy. We brought out little dog and he did well. I would recommend bringing or buying good hiking boots. Lots of cool abandoned cars

Great hike, not difficult, but definitely not easy. Some mud so wear your hiking boots, go on a warm day and bring your swim suit and some aqua shoes for the waterfalls and pool at the end. Great place for kids to play and have lunch. The mountain lion sighting was May 11, so I’m sure it’s long gone.

Very muddy, I did not have hiking boots to wear so I just used tennis shoes and brought extra socks and my crocs for after the hike. There were a few times when the path would split into two or three different paths with no signs indicating which way to go but in the end I used the map AllTrials provided and it worked out. Finding a parking spot on the side of the road was probably the toughest part although I did end up going on a really nice day so everyone had the same idea. Overall getting the shoes muddy and walking a total of 5miles was worth it to see the waterfalls.

Cute waterfall at the halfway point! Would have been nice to take a dip if I had the appropriate attire. Some nice berries to pick, but super muddy.

Beautiful waterfall and swimming area! A lot of salmon berries. Pretty muddy but with the correct shoes it is doable. Not too much exposure so you still get some sun if it is shining!

There were only a couple of spots that had deep mud with no clear way around except through. If you take the higher part of the trail, it is pretty overgrown, which was fine...we snacked on salmon berries along the way. We also saw a few of painted rocks. A Panda and 2 M&Ms
