Not really a trail, but a path. Quick stop off the road to see a beautiful waterfall.

Beautiful waterfall worth seeing if you are in the area. Easy walk from the parking lot. Family friendly. We tacked on a few miles along the Elwha River to see some more pretty sights and we popped off along the river for lunch.

Worth the stop! Small quick walk to falls! If you walked to the end of the road there is a bypass trail which is a quick hike but with a bit of an incline that brings you next to the river and washed out bridge.

Such a pretty waterfall! Very short little paved walk to get there. Bring bikes and enjoy the closed off road that used to lead to the campground.

We took our kids ages 2 and 3 who love waterfalls. It was perfect for a short stroll. The path is paved so its great for a stroller or wheelchair. Very easy, a place anyone can go.

Very easily accessible picturesque falls. Paved path. 200-300 yards total length of the trail. This is one of those road side type falls worth taking a look at.

Not really a trail but more like a 100 yard walk from your car. pretty cool falls though, worth seeing. Decided to hike up past the washed out bridge to Altair campground. Crazy what the river did to the road that is completely gone in areas.

Kid friendly hike it’s a small area just to look at the pretty waterfall from a bench. Not suitable for a huge crowd which is great.

As others have said, a very easy 5 min walk to the falls. It is a lovely spot. We visited in May in the late afternoon and the sun was shining almost directly on the falls. Definitely worth a visit.
