I wouldn't consider this place a hiking spot. More of a nice nature walk. Very beautiful and great for the whole family!

For being right next to the highway its a very nice little hike. Hidden away, you almost wouldn't know it was there. It is very short, but doing it a few times will get the blood pumping for the day.

If you are in Tumwater, this is worth the stop. The falls are more like a tourist attraction than a hike. Paved parking lot, handicap accessible at the upper falls, good for all ages and fitness levels. Late summer, early autumn visitors can see the salmon try to jump the falls to get upstream for spawning. My kids enjoyed it.

Always love this hike. Just simple and beautiful. Great place to see salmon and leaves in the fall. East side of the river is prettier. If visiting the area great to do in conjunction with Capitol Lake Loop.
