Stopped here 09/09. Was one other car in the parking lot but didn’t see anyone. Not really a hike at all if that’s what you are looking for because I think the falls are like 50 ft from the parking lot but it was easy to get here and it was worth it for a quick stop to see the falls and also across from where you park it opens up to a river with nice views. So I wouldn’t go really out of the way for this specifically, especially if you are short on time but if you are in the area and it isn’t sacrificing anything else I’d say it’s worth a stop.

Would call it a hike, just a very quick walk from the parking lot to a nice little waterfall.

Quick and easy walk to the waterfall.

Short hike to the falls. Much more up close and personal, as you can make your way to the bottom and stand right at the foot of the falls. Do not miss this one. It does not take up much time from a busy hiking day to make a quick detour to this trail.

Super short trail with a paved path so even someone in a wheelchair could enjoy the beautiful views. The waterfall was very pretty!

Beautiful waterfall, but this is not a actual trail. The falls are right off the road. Parking and bathroom facilities available.

Not a hike, but pretty waterfall. It didn’t feel as spectacular as Marymere falls.

Very easy walk to see a waterfall. It is cool so you may want a jacket to keep warm. Bathrooms are available and it’s paved 90% of the way

This isn't really a hike but it is absolutely breathtaking. I did it Nov 1 and it was stunning with the leaves falling. I swear when I walked around the corner my heart skipped a beat.

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.

Very easy walk up to a nice waterfall. Three stars because it wasn't much of a hike because it was a paved walk in. Recommend stop by after your day hike to take a look!
