The trail doesn’t start until 6.5 mile walk in do to the road washing out years ago. Once in this hike is great. I start here went over La Crosse Pass, First Divide and out Staircase total 48 some miles.

The path is long and narrow at point no more then 12" wide. The mountain views of the hood canal along with sites of the open wilderness are worth the hike. I spent two days down at Jupiter Lake the hike down and up are very physically demanding and due to the dense vegetation require good knowledge of map reading or a very good GPS. There is no direct path down or up with a lot of wet steep drop offs. Spring time when vegetation is less thick ,may be a better time then when I went in late Sept .Weather changed from sunny and warm to rain wind and snow in the blink of an eye.

This trail is an amazing hike. Perfect inclines, keep your dog on the leash since there are spots that are right on the ledge. Still totally worth it for the views of the huge waterfalls at the end. I'd also agree it would be a stellar mountain biking trail, but since it's not meant for that I wouldn't risk it with the narrowness (in some areas, especially once you approach the waterfalls). Also, the drive to this spot is about 3mls in on a gravel trail, you're definitely be off the grid! Highly recommend!!

Short and sweet

Short trek from the main road, easily done with small children. The waterfall was so beautiful and relaxing. I plan on going again and again!

Ran on this trail and it was pretty well maintained and through beautiful forest. Did both donkey trail and maple valley. Streams all dried up early September but I bet it's gorgeous in early winter!

We still can't figure out why this is rated as moderate. It's a short, easy walk to the falls along a stream with moss filled trees. The falls are incredible. I guess the moderate part would be if you want to get right up to the falls...it is very rocky and you have to climb a bit.

best mountain views i've ever seen in my life. hikes early july
