Fun hike! Lots of up and down areas, as opposed to a gradual incline and decline throughout. One particular area had some debris from the wind storm, but you can still continue on the trail. There is a point in the trail where you turn right to head up the steep incline to the lookout...if you continue straight instead, it takes you to the waterfall.

Well-maintained trail. Very few people. Very pretty waterfall but would not recommend going to do it during the summer as it’s probably a trickle.

Simply stunning! A veritable enchanted forest, and we only saw 3 others and 1 dog the entire time. Highly recommended.

Great hike close to home. The falls were dry today but really enjoyed the peacefulness.

Went late morning on a Sunday. Only saw a couple of people. It was a great little hike.

We enjoyed this hike. Gorgeous terrain. Many teens and an oasis just past a residential area in Renton. Who knew!?
