This is one of the prettiest falls I’ve seen up here, and is nestled deep in the woods. It is a bit of a drive on a windy dirt road to the trailhead, but totally worth it! I just wish the hike up was longer because it was so pretty.
You could even swim at the base in warm enough weather.
Try to go during early morning or late afternoon to avoid the crowd, but I would recommend this to everyone!

Peaceful waterfalls that you can scramble around and relax by.

This was a beautiful hike. I climbed down the bank and took a nice relaxing nap on a rock at the base of the edge of the falls. I will be returning to this waterfall on my next visit to Washington.
The road leading to the trail is atrocious! Filled with pot holes and will wreak havoc on your car but the waterfall is worth it.

Quick hike to the beautiful falls. We'll maintained, a bit of incline but doable. Very open trail, only saw two couples coming out of the trail head as we were going in. No bathroom facilities, parking across from trailhead. Dirt road going to trailhead was full of pot holes. Add extra time driving there.

Short and sweet hike with a stunning waterfall at the end! There was still a lot of ice which made for a beautiful picture. The water is clear and mountain blue.

I wish the trail went on past the waterfall or had some other off shoots to make the hike longer or give you some options to get off the main drag. The road out there was kind of rough.. I didn’t see this mentioned in the previous reviews, but if you aren’t driving an old beater truck out there make sure you give yourself at least 30 mins extra time to pick your way up the pothole dirt road. Overall great hike and worth doing!

If you google — Google leads to a point up the road past the trailhead. Park and begin at the brown sign for the trailhead, earlier than google says.

Great easy beautiful hike to a large waterfall. The pics don’t do it justice. Go see for yourself!

No snow or ice on trail on 12/5, but it had clearly frosted the previous night. December is great time for photographing the magnificent moss since the trees are otherwise bare.

This trail is an amazing hike. Perfect inclines, keep your dog on the leash since there are spots that are right on the ledge. Still totally worth it for the views of the huge waterfalls at the end. I'd also agree it would be a stellar mountain biking trail, but since it's not meant for that I wouldn't risk it with the narrowness (in some areas, especially once you approach the waterfalls). Also, the drive to this spot is about 3mls in on a gravel trail, you're definitely be off the grid! Highly recommend!!

beautiful hike, it was very short and also kid friendly. It has a few good sized hills, but all in all its very easy and short. the waterfall was soooooo pretty! It's very tall. We didn't hike down to the bottom half of the falls because our daughter is VERY scared of heights and there was no way she was interested.

Nice morning hike, only people on the trail!
Falls are gorgeous. They are off the main trail and it's a little difficult to climb down into them, but well worth it. Pools look great for a swim, wish I'd planned for that!

The view is worth it. Hiked it on a Monday early evening in July and only saw 3 other people. Will do it again.

This a great hike to bring small kids on as it is easy and short. Can even climb down to the Lower Fall and climb up to the base of the upper falls.

A bit steep at first, but the hike is REALLY short and totally worth it for the waterfall.

Beautiful trail! A slight climb all the way up to the waterfall.

The waterfall is HUGE! Think of Sturtevant Falls on top and Cooper Canyon Falls on the bottom (see my avatar as a point of reference)

I'm not sure this trail should be rated as moderate, it's an easy in and out trail that most anyone could do. Beautiful scenery and love the waterfall at the end!!
