Very fun hike. Feels like you're in Arizona and not Washington State. Shouldn't be ranked as moderate but do pack good amount of water. Best part of the hike was seeing a rattlesnake.

It was a good change from a typical Washington hike. Almost felt like I was at grand Canyon for a while. It's a pretty easy hike, almost no elevation gain. We spotted a fox during the hike and while returning back were almost attacked by a rattlesnake on the trail but thanks to its rattling we were able to avoid an accident. I would recommend hikers with kids to be extra careful at this hike as it is a very secluded place and might be a difficult to get any help.

It's an easy beautiful hike. Not sure why it's rated as moderate. Not at all difficult for novice hikers or small children. Dogs allowed. No water for dogs until the end of the trail.

An easy winter hike with a payoff of a frozen waterfall.

Beautiful scenery! Be sure to pick the season you go because I went in early Sept. & the waterfalls were either small or bone dry.

By far, our most favorite hike in the whole world. We love Frenchman coulee, the area is beautiful and there are so many different directions to hike. You like flat easy trails? Perfect, go to the sand dunes. You like to do a bit tougher hikes? Perfect, go the opposite direction and go climb some steep ass hills. Seriously, I can't speak any higher of this location, it is our most favorite place to hike.
