We went on a rainy, wet day, but the trail was still in great shape and easily walkable with proper footwear and rain gear. The views are beautiful and was a nice quick hike, with extensions to the reflection lake and the wonderland trail.

This was the 3rd and final trail of our trip, and we didn't have a lot of time. Spent a lot of time admiring the waterfall. Getting from the parking lot down to the observation area was actually the most treacherous part of our entire time at Mt. Rainier! Icy trail meant you had to hang onto the wooden fence and then when the fence ended, we picked our way through the rough area (off the trail) to avoid slipping and falling on the icy, rocky trail. Caught the trailhead just past the waterfall observation area and hiked about a mile in and then back. Heavily wooded, lovely trees and vegetation, with an occasional tiny "waterfall" from melting ice/snow. Wish we could have made it all the way to the lake--heard it was nice.

Hiked early march 2017. Amazing snowshoeing! The falls were covered with snow so didn't see them, and hiked on up to reflection lake. Jays all over trying to eat our food! Beautiful and would love to do it in summer

We went on the trail that goes up. Very steep. I'd do it again. But I'd considerate it more than moderate. Very beautiful scenery!
