Anytime I am heading out to do some hiking I always stop by here. Quick, easy walk with a beautiful waterfall. This place never gets old.

I loved being able to take my wheel-chair bound Grandma to this beautiful waterfall! ADA accessible and surrounded by beautiful green.

I was sold on this trail the second I saw the Elwha River! Glacier green water was beautiful. The waterfall is very nice and worth the short hike.

Lovely, short, easy hike with beautiful fauna and well maintained paved trail. My nana, who uses a cane, was even able to enjoy the trail. The waterfall at end was beautiful!! Worth the short jaunt

This was a beautiful waterfall. Super easy hike and not that many people there. I was the only one there for a half hour before a few others showed up. Definitely would go back

Super easy paved walk to a nice waterfall. Elwha River near parking area is beautiful and we ate breakfast on the rocks.

If you're looking for a very short walk (paved) with a beautiful pay-off, definitely check it out. You can continue up the road to longer hikes afterward (although this trail allows dogs and the trails up the road do not). There are also great views of the Elwha River across the street from the parking lot. Short drive from the main 101 hwy.

Brief walk but great payoff with the mossy waterfall.

Beautiful drive thru the Forest. Initially, missed the trailhead sign on the right but doubled back and parked on side of road. Nice hike up, moderate with some elevation gain, good trail condition. More than one vantage point from which to view the Falls.
