This is a 1 mile point-to-point trail, making 2 miles total (unsure why AllTrails's automated system says 3.6 miles). The trail meanders by a stream through aspen, birch and pine groves until it reaches a small basalt column cirque with a waterfall. Best in spring, but doable in all but the dead of winter.

great hike! saw beautiful butterflies all over and no snakes! Getting to the bottom of the waterfall was definitely a challenge but well worth it.

The trail is washed out a few times and difficult to cross the creek at two or three points with and a lot of mud! But it was fun and the falls is great :)

First off this is not in Selah! It's in Ellensburg! Horrible hike for this time of year, snow is melting and the river kept cutting off the trail and was not able to make it to the actual falls. the river or Creek was too wide to cross especially with little dogs! super muddy, just a dang mess! would not recommend until late late summer or winter time!

Beautiful winter hike! Snow on the trail is compact enough to walk comfortably, although crampons will help with the slipping.

Easy trail to the top of the falls. A little sketchy getting to the bottom. Not much to see on the way in but very pretty falls and little pool at the bottom. Enjoyed it very much.

Walked the trail on 11/06/16. a very pretty and easy trail was muddy at times and had some trouble jumping over the creek at certain points then again could just be the season. Didn't realize you need a wa park pass or day pass forgot to bring mine thankfully no patrols out but did see a couple people to the trail not overly crowded
