I read the last reviews and they said the bridge was fixed. Based on the the All Trails map, the bridge was not there. The water was pretty high to cross the river today and decided to turn back. Was a pretty cool sight to see though! Would like to come back again in the summer time!

Easy trail overall. Mud wasn’t awful today. Still had some snow but you can easily tell where to go based on foot prints. River towards the top was passable (no bridge anymore) for some it seemed but we didn’t have extra socks and I didn’t want to finish with wet feet as it was still cool and water was frigid. Overall beautiful area the highway noise is annoying in spots though. Got there around 8:30 and when heading back we started to see more traffic.

The bridge is fixed now. The water is at a little below knee level where you cross the river. No other way to get around it. Snow gets pretty deep past that point. Had to use AllTrails to guide where to go. Was fine in hiking boots tho and definitely worth it.

The bridge is passable just watch your step. There are some spots at the top where the snow covers the trail but the AllTrails map can guide you. The major water crossing half way up was running pretty full. No way not to get wet. Worth it. The falls were spectacular and had them all to myself for most the afternoon. Coming back in the summer when the water will be more fun.

It was a beautiful hike. There were still little bit of snow but we made it through.kids enjoyed a lot. Definitely recommend for those who would like to hike with young kids.

a tree has fallen on the wooden foot bridge crossing the river about .3 of a mile up the trail, It's not passable. Hopefully there is no structural damage, railing is missing too.

Very nice trail but we weren't able to get to the falls, there was too much snow towards the end still (and the kids were tired). There's still a tree that fell over the first bridge, but the bridge is ok and you can climb over the tree. Trailhead is accessible now, from the South as well as from the pass side, they cleared the last tree from the pass side yesterday.

Originally my friend and I tried hiking to Melakwa lake at the end of April 2019, but the snow was so heavy we couldn’t find a trail at all. The furthest we could get was Keekwulee falls and we didn’t wanna risk getting lost since nobody else was on the trail. But nonetheless we were highly satisfied! Hike wasn’t bad at all either, pretty easy!

Tried getting to the falls today but was cut just short of making it. I left my snowshoes in my car thinking I wouldn’t need them & only took micro spikes. Once you hit the snowfields you’re post-holing like CRAZY. It looked like I was one of the few that have attempted this in the past few months, so finding trail is quite difficult at times. Especially crossing the river the final time. Wait a few months for this :) Oh and the road is still closed so that’s another 4 miles or whatever.

Tried to visit this trail today (12/29) but the forest road that leads to the trailhead was closed. Not sure if the closure is for the winter season or temporary. If you add the length of the closed road to the trail, it would probably add 4 miles or so round trip.

It was sunny today but very icy. Especially the road to the trail head. Hike itself was beautiful. A little tricky going across the river but otherwise not to bad. Prefer less trafficked hikes.

Sunny day on Thanksgiving, road to parking lot is a bit icy but a 4 wheel drive handles it well. Going to the waterfall is pretty easy, not steep, and the view is great at the river crossing, waterfall view is not bad. Some snow on trail.
