Nice hike for the view you get. It’s short, do plan some other hikes or adventures in the area to make it worth the trip. The ride in is a bit rough, so go slow on the roads.

fast and easy so cool

Beautiful!

Definitely a long haul! Worth it. The lake was beautiful. There aren’t too many camp spots at the lake, but we were able to make it work. The last mile to the lake is uphill so be prepared for a bit of exertion before being able to relax and swim at a lake.

Great easy little hike. Took my daughter and had lunch at the falls.

Not really a hike, a quick .2-.3 miles. Can get crowded but there’s a lot of room. Falls are great.

I think we lucked out and had the entire place to ourselves. What a gorgeous falls. The walk is short, albeit very pretty. We took our time and enjoyed the serenity. Only saw two other people coming in as we were leaving.

What a gorgeous hike. Huge payoff for a short distance (with a well maintained trail). We went early to beat the hottest pet of the day and felt like we had the entire place to ourselves. It was peaceful and beautiful. Thimble berries were ripe.

Hiked this with our two young kiddos, who are experienced but do need to be reminded to stay away from the edge. They thought scrambling down to the rocks was great!

Absolutely stunning hike. Did the extra 3 miles round trip to the summit of Mt. Buckhorn; worth the extra elevation gain! At the top of marmot pass, the trail intersects with Tubal Cain. Take a right and scramble up the steep trail to reach the summit. Perfect warm day and amazing views of the Olympics.
And the signs to the upper big quilcene trailhead are very visible, including the 2750 forest road.

Beautiful short forested hike to the falls.

Absolutely beautiful.

Last week, 7-14-18,and 7-15-18, we did an overnighter to Camp Mystery with a day hike above Marmot Pass and back for a RT mileage of 13.4.

Arrived at trailhead, #833 and on the trail by 9:20am. There were about 35 cars in the parking lot and many campers walked by us as we were getting ready. Its fairly steep in the beginning but steeper after Shelter Rock about mid-way in. That said, a good pace can be made upto Shelter Rock, which is big enough to allow camping. After Shelter Rock it's much steeper with hardly any switch backs. It opens up to good viewpoint a couple times.


Not knowing the camping options on the pass, we stopped at Camp Mystery because there was a good site available. It's 5.8 mles in and a very popular place to camp. After setting up camp we hiked to Marmot Pass. Beautiful! A must see. Then hiked left and up to a platue-like peak were it's even more beautiful...with spectacular view of mountain ranges near and far. Beautiful! Camping is also available here. We saw at over 10 tents on top, 4 along the ridge to the top and 3-4 in the meadow below the Pass, with room to spare but you'll have company. Alot of people camped at Camp Mystery stayed at the top to watch the sunset. We opted not to. This was an Awesome hike and one I WILL do again...but camp at the pass.

Nice falls a short walk off the road. Parking is there in the form of pull off spots with no signs marking area. Constant stream of people even on a Wednesday early afternoon.

A very short trail, and very busy. The waterfall is beautiful for such a short hike, but getting a photo without people in it. However if you are in the area it's worth the short hike in and out.

Rode bikes in first 4.5 miles, stash and lock em’ up. Very steep climb on way up, map says 1.5 as the crow flies, but probably closer to 3-4 miles up with turns and whatnot. Hike is very difficult up, with downed logs and etc. Lake was thawed and beautiful, lots of brown trout. Some small patches of snow, Mt Constance looks summit-able with good weather. Saw some people attempt it but got turned around due to weather. Good luck.

This trail is amazing. Not for the faint of heart. We went to Marmot Pass and continued up the Buckhorn Mt.

really busy, even on a weekday. there were kids climbing all over the rocks and swimming, which is great if you'd like a kid putting hike, not so much of you're looking to photograph nature and enjoy some tranquility.

A few other people hiked to the level where the upper falls was and I followed suit. absolutely amazing! I stood behind the upper falls, glorious hike! I'd you're going to get off the trail you absolutely want shoes with good tread. if you want to behave yourself this is a slightly challenging but quick hike to a gorgeous Washington falls

The risk to reward for this hike is no question. For less than a mile 1-way you get to see an amazing falls!!!

Great hike with beautiful views! Great for dogs!

Beautiful hike and a few great little camping areas. I would say that it's one you can bring young kids and they would have a good time. Most of the hike was in the woods. Fairly flat compared to other hikes nearby. Plan on 4-5 hours to go all the way to the campground with some time to rest and take breaks.

Done as a day hike, but their are plenty of campsites at the top. Absolutely beautiful scenery the whole way up. Discover pass isn't accepted here, so make sure you get a day or national pass at the ranger station.

This was super easy, but very beautiful! My kids enjoyed climbing on the rocks and I got some great pictures.

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
