We did not hike the trail and viewed the fall from the lookout areas. This is a site to see and definitely worth the trip out to eastern WA. Absolutely beautiful!

We got there at 9 and there were barley any cars there, come back at 11 and there were more than 50 people waiting to get to the park, would recommend to come early but it might have been because it was Memorial Day.

get there early. we left at 2 and there were over 100 cars waiting to park. don't just go to the lookout, do the hike down to the water and along the river to the top of the falls. then follow the trail from the falls to get down to the bottom-amazing!

we got there this morning around 11am and the parking was almost full, so the earlier you get there the better. The view was beautiful, buy unfortunately the color of the waterfall was brown.

The view is amazing! I would recommend going as early as you can parking runs out fast! And there was a line to get in as I was leaving around 1, to get down to the waterfall is a very sketchy unkept trail. There are ropes to help you down and back up attached to some trees. But over all worth it and beautiful!!

Beautiful hike and well worth it, but a little dangerous with loose rock, and steep cliffs. I would not recommend this for small children.

Trail was great, there were a lot of people. I suggest go early morning to skip the hour wait around noon. When we left at 2:45 there were about 70-80 cars waiting in line to come in as one car left, one car came in. Water was beautiful.

If you venture down the tracks and out to the top of the falls, or past that and to the bottom of the falls- be careful- if your not experienced in this type of trail, don’t try it, or take your kids (stay up in the park area).
