Loved this trail. Go when the water is flowing and you will be rewarded with a stunning collection of cascades, falls, chutes, and water music. The Harvey Williams Nature trail is really something special. The rest of the loop follows Smith creek and is a basic walk in the woods. Qui Va la Elise Falls is a really nice side trail into a gorgeous mossy canyon. Watch your step on the slippery rocks.

Beautiful waterfall!

Muddy in some areas, but overall a great afternoon hike. Awesome view from the crag.

First time checking out this spot! Lord was it strenuous getting back up! It was super wet and muddy which made conditions a little more rough. Overall, it was totally worth it. Boy was the water flowing! Several waterfalls getting up to the huge one. It was surreal. Highly enjoyable

I loved the trail. However, I was expecting it to be 3 miles and it’s way longer

The lower portion of this trail is temporarily closed due to damage from flooding and erosion. You can still hike to the overlook by accessing the trail at the upper trailhead just past the pavilion on Hwy 23.

this trail is a 4.5 Mile trail from the trailhead the views up top are great .

I have hiked this trail twice and I will again, it is amazing. It is technical in some small areas and falling on slick stone is very possible near the creek, wear proper footwear. It is easy to get hurt on this trail so try to bring a friend.

Awesome trail with some awesome wildlife. This trail is very well marked with mile markers along the way. You can car camp in a campsite right in front of the trailhead, or hike in a few miles to the primitive campsite if you’re looking to extent your stay for a relaxed weekend.

Every time I do this trail I enjoy it more. It’s work, it is, but honestly step for step it’s become one of my favorites. The waterfall is special and the trip to the river is pretty as well, but this is one of the bigger elevation gains you’ll see on a hike this size in this area, and I really appreciate it. Lot of work and lot of fun every time I do it. Just a few minutes under 2 hours to go to the waterfall and back. There is one blowdown about 1/3 of the way down that probably needs to be dealt with, is pretty difficult to wiggle around, other than that just prepare to get your feet a bit wet most times and enjoy.

and waterfalls are very very pretty and nice to see but the trail is crap

Visited here in the spring of 2018. It turned out to be much better than I expected. Try to join one of the tours of the school if you can, as it will add much to your visit. This remains one of my favorite historic NPS sites I’ve been to.

First time at Tea Kettle. Haven't had much rain the last couple days and the waterfall was proof of it as it was a slow trickle. We crossed the creek several times and it was deep enough to where we ended up with soaked feet. The trail was pretty easy to follow thanks to the red hiking tape. There were some fallen trees but nothing you wouldn't expect out in nature and easy enough to step over. Hope to go back in the spring right after a heavy rain.

Great little trail. I've been driving by it for too many years. Finally decided to do it on a lazy day. Wear sturdy, waterproof shoes. Lots of rocks and a nice creek you have to cross several times. Met a few people and their dogs, along the way. I stopped to take a lot of pictures. I'm never in a hurry when I hike.
