3/30: Great hike! Took 4 hours round trip to otter falls. Most of trail with snow pack but with limited elevation, we did okay without spikes. We did put them on to hike the side trail to the falls. Thanks to the hiker who marked the trail trees with pink ribbon. Not far off main trail. Good workout.

This was a very nice, mellow hike that leaves you feeling like you did some work/got a healthy dose of exercise. Today there was snow on the trail (both soft and hard packed) and few people which made for a peaceful winter wonderland. You may want yaktrax for extra traction and icy areas.

An incredibly wet and cold day with snow flurries. Soaked to the bone for 9 out of the 10 miles. Navigated ankle deep creeks and falls many times and the trail seemed like 1 big puddle. Gorgeous scenery- just one waterfall after another. Never saw the turn off for Otter Falls and after 5 miles turned back due to shortage of time. I think we were so focused on the trail straight ahead we missed signs for any small unmarked side trail. Would be a great hike for the spring when the water is still flowing in the falls but a little warmer and drier.

This was a nice hike. Not much in the way of elevation. Someone was kind enough to mark with rocks where to turn off to see Otter Falls. It goes up in an area where trees are down. Not really a path just up. There was very little water but in the spring it should be amazing. You will want hiking shoes or boots as you will be walking on many rocks. We parked a half mile from the trail head because I like my car. It has big dips that trucks can handle. We did not have a problem with bugs.
