This is one of the prettiest falls I’ve seen up here, and is nestled deep in the woods. It is a bit of a drive on a windy dirt road to the trailhead, but totally worth it! I just wish the hike up was longer because it was so pretty.
You could even swim at the base in warm enough weather.
Try to go during early morning or late afternoon to avoid the crowd, but I would recommend this to everyone!

Peaceful waterfalls that you can scramble around and relax by.

Awesome spot to take beautiful pictures, the waterfall is so gorgeous. And it’s a very fun place to take all 4 of my kiddos too (ages 8-2)! Nice and easy hike/walk with a lot of cool bouldering for the lava monster games! ;) Haha

First hike in the Seattle area and it did not disappoint! Trail was easy to access and clearly sign posted which was great as we’re from out of town. Distance was closer to 11-12 miles according to my phone tracking and as has been described previously, the switchbacks to the top are tough, but the trail is easy to follow and the view from the top does not disappoint! It was a hard first hike but well worth it.

Both fauna and foliage came through on my first trip there! I spotted a goat climbing down a giant bolder, a stark white (except the tail) blacktail doe, happened upon a huge buck, etc. I won't spoil it all, but when considering Big Hump, be sure to bring extra batteries for your camera or a charger for your phone! I can't wait to press further on my next visit! i may even picnic at the halfway point of Big Hump

This was a beautiful hike. I climbed down the bank and took a nice relaxing nap on a rock at the base of the edge of the falls. I will be returning to this waterfall on my next visit to Washington.
The road leading to the trail is atrocious! Filled with pot holes and will wreak havoc on your car but the waterfall is worth it.

Visiting this place only once doesn't do this falls justice. The flow changes each time I've been there. It has character. For beautiful pictures of this place, go to a local photographer's facebook page - Klaass Images.

This place is well worth the drive to it!!!!

Beautiful

on Lake Constance Trail

1 month ago

It was a Friday, April 27th. Beautiful day, about 68 degrees and sunny around midday. Got to the trail around 0730 and to the trail head for the Lake Constance trail at about 0930 (we walked, not mountain biked). From there, it was all uphill. Downed trees to climb over, a trail marker here and there to help guide us. As we reached about half way up the steep incline, we hit a little snow, thought nothing of it. Then we began trudging thru about a foot to two feet of snow our entire rest of the way to the lake. Maybe our own ignorance is to blame, or just eager to hike up to what we saw in the pictures previously posted, but we did not imagine that much snow or the lake being so frozen over this close to May. However, we did see a bald eagle at the top so you can't complain too much there. The descent took awhile as well due to the snow and how slippery everything was. All in all, we were probably a tad too out of shape for this, but we prevailed and finished. When they recommend June thru October, we'll be sure to heed that warning next time.

Went for our first time today and it was a very beautiful hike. Only made it about 3 miles up and the whole trail is snow and ice. Had our dog and he had a blast. Did not see one person there. Very peaceful and the river and waterfalls are amazing. Will definitely go back during the summer to make it to the top. Hardest uphill hike I've ever done though.

Amazing falls. Very easy to get to by car (10 minutes out of Brinnon and hike is easy and only 5-10 minutes for one of the most powerful small falls I’ve seen. The volume of water is incredible and the trail goes right up to it. Don’t miss it.

This trail was beautiful the whole way. It was definitely longer than 12.1 miles though. My tracker said 15.3 miles round trip.
5.37 miles until the turn off where the actual climb starts. Took me about an hour and 40 to get to this point. This portion of the trail was well maintained and easy.
After 5.37 miles, the turn off to climb up to the lake will be on the right. It can be easy to miss, but there is a wood sign on the ground that says “Lake Constance”. There are a lot of downed trees on this portion of the trail so be prepared to climb over them. For first mile, it is fairly easy to find the trail. As you get higher up the trail gets hard to find at times. But there are occasional pink and orange ties to guide you. I had the app opened and used the map on here to help me find the path. This portion was slightly over two miles and took me just under two hours. Coming down was slippery so be sure to allow extra time.
There was a little snow toward the top, but nothing crazy. I brought spikes but didn’t need to use them. I did this hike by myself but I would recommend having company.

Great hike with views of the river. The trail is in good shape until Five Mile Camp with only a few blowdowns. After Five Mile Camp there are lots of blowdowns and the trail is more overgrown.

As others have noted, the switchbacks are brutal.

Quick hike to the beautiful falls. We'll maintained, a bit of incline but doable. Very open trail, only saw two couples coming out of the trail head as we were going in. No bathroom facilities, parking across from trailhead. Dirt road going to trailhead was full of pot holes. Add extra time driving there.

The switchbacks are brutal but the view is worth the work. The traffic was heavier than I expected it would be. All things considered, a beautiful trail.

Short but beautiful. We did a big hike earlier in the day so arrived tired in the afternoon and it was perfect. A little crowded but super beautiful. Had our kiddos and they enjoyed it, especially our 4 year old. Thumbs up!

Nice quick hike

Easy quick hike well worth the trip and easy to head to another hike after did steam donkey after this.

Short and sweet hike with a stunning waterfall at the end! There was still a lot of ice which made for a beautiful picture. The water is clear and mountain blue.

I wish the trail went on past the waterfall or had some other off shoots to make the hike longer or give you some options to get off the main drag. The road out there was kind of rough.. I didn’t see this mentioned in the previous reviews, but if you aren’t driving an old beater truck out there make sure you give yourself at least 30 mins extra time to pick your way up the pothole dirt road. Overall great hike and worth doing!

Beautiful, short hike and close to Steam Donkey Loop which are both easily doable in a day.

such a beautiful trail, and at the end is this magnificent waterfall
