Some of the steps have washed out requiring a little bit of scrambling. Go slow and carefully. Falls are amazing.

The road to the trailhead was fine. Small parking area for maybe 3-4 vehicles, but we were the only ones there so it was fine. A landslide has destroyed the trail in at least two places, requiring climbing/large steps to somewhat unstable and muddy spots. Of course it's muddy in a couple spots, it's been raining and it's a raging waterfall. Totally worth it.

Trailhead marker in All Trails is about one mile off. It is closer to Darrington about one mile. We had to find it from looking at the map of a track. But it took us about 5 minutes to hike down to falls. It was raging!

Trailhead is not marked. Parking space on side of road could accommodate maybe 3 vehicles. Super short easy hike with breathtaking views! Magical really!The stairs and railings I found, lend a mild sense of security, but mostly their condition elicited apprehension. I wouldn't rely on the railings for support, and some of the steps are loose. Parts of the trail were muddy.
