Franklin Falls Trail is a popular, easy hike that is only a few miles round trip and is easily accessible thanks to the paved road in and the ample parking lot. It is a perfect hike for the whole family, so feel free to bring kids, even the little ones. The path is clearly marked and had plenty of stopping points. This is a highly travelled trail so parking fills up quickly, but that also means there are are restrooms available at the trailhead. This is a great hike year round. It is a perfect hike for taking a dip in the summer, enjoying a classic foggy pacific northwest day, and is a real winter wonderland when it is snowy- though you will want to consider bringing snow shoes or at least sturdy hiking boots and hiking poles. This can also be done as a loop with the Wagon Road Trail.

Really nice and easy trail to take young kids and dogs on. Extremely popular... which is not always my favorite. It was super crowded. But the views were great and the cabins along the way were adorable.

Beautiful short hike to Franklin Falls
Bring waterproof boots unless you like having cold wet feet. Trekking poles also help.

Such a beautiful trail along the river. Giant moss covered rocks and a beautiful view of the falls!

A beautiful hike along the water. Great views along the way and plenty of spots to step off the path to catch your breath. Uphill all the way to falls then downhill heading back. Use alternative Wagon trail for fewer hikers and less steps.

Came here during summer and it was easy to find parking on the side of the road, not far from the trailhead start. Dog-friendly. Just be careful climbing the side of the mountain to get to the waterfall, but it is definitely worth it. Awesome how you can get up close to the waterfall. The trail is fairly shaded for a summer hike.

Took the falls trail on the way to the falls and took Wagon Road trail on the way back. I would say this is the best route, both routes are the same length. The falls one follows the creek and the wagon road is in the woods.
