The gravel road to the trailhead is rough. But the waterfall is great if you can scramble up the boulders to get right up to it. The 2nd half up to the alpine meadows is steeper, but the wildflowers and Rainier views are worth it. About 4 hrs round trip.

Combined this one with Tolmie Peak. We hadn't planned on it but totally worth the trip to the falls (about 3 miles RT). Recommend hiking a little up through the boulder field.

I did this trail with my oldest daughter two weeks ago for the first time. This is now my favorite overall hike, it's just the right blend of gain, distance, and overall beauty. The gravel road to the trailhead sucks but the view from the top of Spray Park makes it completely worthwhile. There are also an abundance of low bush blueberries/huckleberries that are sweet and satisfying as a reward for the climb.

The last time I was up here was in 1982 when I was only 12 years old. I have no idea why I waited 35 years to come back. Absolutely fantastic trail!!
