Excellent hike. We did the 2.8 mile loop but it is more like 4. Waterfall was gorgeous and green scenery (moss, emerald green foliage, giant trees etc.) takes your breath away. I have hiked many many trails in WA and thus is most def in Top 10. My little dog Pebbles Loved it. Absolutely beautiful. Will go again 4 sure.

I loved this hike. Had no idea what to expect and was beyond surprised at the amazing views and serenity. I definite must. I wouldn’t recommend kids under 10 and poles are helpful

A really fun trail for the family. Lots of old growth trees and other beautiful plants to check out. We hiked the white river trail that took us to a rocky spot along the river which offered an amazing view of the river, trees, and mountains. We walked to the picnic area that's kind of above the river and has a little fence and wanted to loop back around but one of the trails was currently closed due to damage. It was still the perfect spot for a quick lunch. We saw a handful of other people but the trails weren't crowded in any way. The parking lot was maybe 3/4 full.

I would recommend this trail to anybody looking for some elevation gain and beautiful views. Low traffic, constant shade with a couple breaks, and narrow trails. The first water crossing has a makeshift bridge as well as a couple stepping stones. Overall it took us about 45minutes to get to the first waterfall.

My kids and I love this trail! (Kids are 6,5,3, and I front carry my 3m old) Especially the swamp area. They enjoy crossing the many “bridges”. There’s one long, steep, slope to get down to them that the kids have a little trouble with, but it’s worth it. There is always mud, but that’s half the fun! Drizzly days are the best days to go! We’ve been going for a few years, now, and we only run into 1 or 2 people while on the trail, fall-spring. Summertime, usually a few more. We also, enjoy the park that’s through the gate and the water feature, during the summertime.

Mostly gravel and at an incline. Don’t go for the views. Some mud on the path that is not gravel. Not too busy and could maintain social distance. Would hike again.

Trail is open! After a short wait for a parking spot we headed up the trail. There was a fair amount of mud but otherwise fine. We made it to the first lake and passed several groups -- the trail was busy but not what I'd characterize as crowded. One couple came through with a chainsaw to clear the trail to bring their horses through.

Beautiful spot. After the steps there is two smaller crossings over the water fall. One with a sturdy thick board and the other with loose half vertical cut logs. There’s a really beautiful view point over the valley. That’s when I turned around. Up and back down took 3.5 hours. Only wild life we saw was one squirrel. Peaceful.

Great quick workout. We saw a lot of people using sticks on this trail which seemed like a great idea. We carried backpacks but since it ‘s such a short & steep hike I reccomend carrying the least amount of things possible. Very rewarding, I just wish the top of the peak had a better view. However, on the other side & entrance, I ‘ve hiked had a better open view of the beautiful green peaks and trees. We got from our car to the peak and back with a few pauses in a little over an hour.

Well maintained trail. Parking lot open. Would only go on a sunny day. Couldn’t see much of rainier. Without seeing rainier the trail to me wouldn’t be worth it! Slightly muddy

Always a great family hike! Tons of bridges, beautiful scenery and lakes. Trail in good condition other than some mud.

Great little falls hike. If you want to get up close to the falls it's a slippery scramble. Take your time and be careful. Its raging and beautiful right now.

Well-maintained parking and trail, but the drive was more beautiful than the actual views of this hike, bathrooms inaccessible. Great if you want the exercise, sad when you get to the top, slightly confusing to navigate even with trail markers; kept weaving in and out onto the gravel hill. Good for moderate/beginners.

beautiful spot at the upper falls !

Fun trail to get a good heart pumping workout because it’s a good steady climb. Accidentally went the back road which starts out gravel. Lots of little side trails—easy to get lost but I just followed the all trails gps with the marked routes. No view at the top. Easy to social distance because of all the side trails that all intertwine together. Lots of parking. Porter potty is open.

Great little trail. Bridge is out to go to other side of lake and continue on. We went to the other side had lunch and went back. Parked on the main road about 1/8 away from trailhead.

This trail was amazing! However, it is currently closed due to COVID-19.

Very nice trail but the road leading into the parking area is closed (4/17/2020). I parked about a mile away and hiked up to the trail head, it’s completely empty. I had the entire waterfall to myself and I don’t think I’ll ever have that experience or luxury again. ;) Beautiful hike, will go back again when COVID ends.

Hiked today, beautiful greenish clear lakes. Hit some snow and ice along the way, often well packed. Was attempting to do Lost Lake. Turned out to be a good name as when you get beyond the lakes and cross a stream with a few logs to get to a bridge, the trail was not easily traceable. Followed it around a creek and the trail seemed to end. Ended up taking some elk/deer trails up the ravine, with some off trail work involved. Went about a mile beyond the lakes, with some pathfinding. Or lack of. The 'path' I followed went S and lead to some steep rock faces. There didn't seem to be a good way up, and the snow was not packed nearly as well in this area. I followed a few game paths but again, could not discern a good route. Spent 5 hours total. Will go back with a map/compass when the snow melts some. Overall a beautiful day.
