A very short pretty hike. Must visit if you are coming to paradise. Heavily trafficked as the description says. The entire path is paved except the last part where it becomes a bit slippery because of the ice. Nice views of the waterfall. Also, I spotted a fox on this trail!

Excellent hike at Mt Rainier. We saw beautiful flowers (blooming like crazy), marmots, and The Mountain was in full view. Hike is strenuous for the average person not used to hiking. A good breather for those whom hike a good bit. I wouldn't recommend for smaller children not used to hiking. I was fine with my trekking poles.

Highly recommend doing the full loop of this trail. The wild flowers are beautiful at the start and end, but the middle takes you up 6800 feet with amazing views of glacier streams and wildlife. Bring a rain jacket because it can get windy and cold towards the top. Amazing hike

Couple of small patches of snow remain but very easy to cross. Wildflowers are looking quite stunning now! Did see a black bear about a hundred yards or so off the trail but he was completely minding his own business. Very very crowded on a beautiful Tuesday!

If you follow this trail, it is all paved. It is probably one of the prettiest views in the park. Taking a picture of the falls, the bridge and Mt Rainier all in one is a trifecta. The hike is easy. Do NOT do this on a weekend. Do this in the morning when the sun is behind you for best photo.

The trail was very crowded and we had to wait in line just to see the waterfall at the viewpoint area. This was a fully paved trail, however it had an incline that made it a sort of hard trail. At the trail head, there was a huge chunk of snow that we had to walk over. It is very hard to find parking, so try to get there early. We couldn't find parking in the UPPER LOT so we had to park in the LOWER LOT and hike a while just to get to the trail. Beautiful views, but might not have been worth it... *VISIT: July 4, 2019

Nice little walk up to the falls and you can walk through many many different off shoot trails here. 3 Stars due to the massive amount of people here. Still great views and an easy back up if some of the other better trails are snowed over.
