From Port Angeles, West for 20 miles on US 101 to signed Storm King Ranger Station. Right after station for 200 yards. Right on Lake Crescent Rd to the trailhead.

Super fun trail run. Big beautiful old growth trees and well groomed pathways. Perfect family or relaxing trails. Make sure to take the detour to the Crescent Lake Lodge!

Added on after hiking Mt Storm King and it was a pretty lackluster waterfall compared to others in the area. Trail was crowded due to being an easier hike.

Well maintained easy trail with some steep steps nearing the top of the waterfall, signs say no dogs allowed but the ranger seemed happy to look the other way when we walked by with our dog on leash.

A sweet little trail to a lovely waterfall. We walked this Sept 28th and it was not too crowded.

In early August, this trail was dry and easy to follow for 3/4 of the hike, but the final quarter to the waterfall was a bit more challenging as the incline was quite steep. There are lots of uneven stairs to aid. My 65-year-old dad, who has bad knees, completed the hike with the aid of a hiking stick.
The waterfall was beautiful, but I’m sure would be incredible in the spring. The hike starts and ends at the beautiful, clear Lake Crescent. It was gorgeous.
I took away one star due to the crowds on the trail.

Nice little hike. There is a lot of elevation gain once you get to the waterfall in the form of stairs mostly but wasn't bad. I saw an old man with a cane doing it. I love the bridge made from a local tree.

Beautiful trail with bridges, tunnels and waterfall. Very easy until the very end there are a few steps to climb up to see the falls.

It was an easy hike, my 6 yrs. old son didn’t complain at all. It is a 1.5 miles from Lake Crescent Lodge. Old trees are beautiful. Thumbs up for those that worked hard to maintain the trails. Five star all in all.

Short, easy trail to a beautiful waterfall. Numerous No Pet signs, but we encountered two fellow hikers who thought they were "special". Each had dogs! Folks, rules exist for a reason. We called each of these gentlemen out for their wrongdoing, but neither cared at the moment. We need to be the stewards of these beautiful areas! Oh, mosquitoes were minimal today.

Beautiful and short hike from Lake Crescent Lodge, it’s a well maintained trails. Old trees big rocks and the Falls I love them all. The wood stairs are well taking care of. Going up the upper Falls is a little hard on my knees, but it’s worth it. If you want a little easier hike for your knees the lower Falls is a better choice. My 6 years does not have a problem with it though. I’m surprised he didn’t complain. We enjoyed it. I recommend this trail.

A wide and very pleasant trail with large old-growth trees, ferns, and mosses. The water fall is nice.

Great little hike to see a beautiful waterfall and play in the stream down below. A bonus: hike along the trails by Lake Crescent to catch some extraordinary views of that amazing mountain lake.

A fun and quick little trail with plenty to see along the way. Starting at Lake Crescent, you pass through a small tunnel and into a mossy forest. It’s a straightforward walk to the falls with not much climbing at all. Perfect for all ages. We went in early July and the level of Mosquitos was border line unbearable. We found this was the case in most of the hikes we did so take bug spray! You will pass by a few bridges that cross over some creeks that are great for pictures. And finally once at the falls, make sure you climb up to the second platform for a better view. The falls themselves are not the greatest sight on earth but the trail makes it worth the easy venture.

We got to the parking lot at 5:30 and it took us about 1 hour 15 minutes round trip. Late afternoon was a good time to visit - not crowded and the setting sun creates some beautiful views along the trail.

You may want some bug spray. The mosquitoes were not bad but there were some flying about. A little citronella insurance policy might serve you well.

The falls are pretty and you can get quite close. The two foot bridges are picturesque, particularly the narrow one made from logs.

Easy walking until you get to the bridges, then there is a short climb to the falls. I would suggest going left on the loop and coming back down time same way. The lower falls view is superior to the upper view and the path is easier.

Definitely worth the time.
