Beautiful hike. The path can be a bit narrow/steep in places, so I wouldn't bring young children. You do need a Northwest Forest Pass to park. When you reach the falls you have two choices: you can either turn back and go the way you came, or you can proceed across the water and continue on in the loop. Turning back is definitely an easier route (mostly downhill). Continuing on is much rougher terrain, you will be scaling rocks that are sometimes unsteady. However the route is beautiful and there are some awesome views along the way.

Moderately hard lol

We parked at the lot off of mud mountain rd and went up the trail at the south part of the peak. This trail while having an easier elevation gain also had more switchbacks. The views weren’t the best although there was a point about halfway up where you had a good view at the valley. The last 100 feet or so to the top you had to scale over small boulders, but was not that difficult

Cool place! Amazing amount of flowers and a wonderful waterfall! Definitely do the loop trail! We took our 5 and 8 year old girls and they did fine.

from the new parking lot you get a little bit more mileage

Nice trail. Not too steep. Our 3 year old made it up.

Drove all the way there to find the FS gate closed and locked about 5.1 miles from the trailhead. I’m not sure when it opens. Today is May 13th.

Awesome Hike! not a lot of great views and the top is heavily forested with tall trees so not much to see. but the 1000 ft elevation over a mile distance is excellent for a quick hard hit hike. I did it a couple weeks ago with my 2.5 yo som and he made it all the way to the top on his own two legs. did have to be carried most of the way down though...

Loved Snoquera Falls! We logged about 5 miles and had no trouble at all finding it. At the top, the falls were running real heavy, & we had to navigate through some water using rocks to step our way through to continue the loop on the other side (all part of the adventure)
Hiking poles really helped on the water crossings.
Highly recommend this hike for a season opener!

It’s a little confusing to get there. From highway 410 (coming from Enumclaw), take a left on the sign that says Camp Sheppard Trailhead. There you will find the parking lot on your right as well as the bathrooms. There is a sign that marks the starting point to Snoquera falls. At the beginning of the trail you meals it to an amphitheater (wooden house) from there just keep going straight until you reach the next sign. The next sign is torn down so just make a left and your on the trail to Snoquera. Very easy hike, less than 4 miles round trip. No snow on this day and perfect for the entire family of a solo hike. Not trafficked, only like 2 or 3 other people there. I lost signal 30 minutes before getting there so make sure you save directions. Gorgeous views and highly recommended!

nice easy hike, alot of the trail signs were broken in half or unreadable so we ended up on two other trails and had to back track, and then we got less into the actual camp. trail was a bit confusing but a good short hike.

well worth the effort.
gorgeous woods and falls

who knew this was here!? I've lived in enumclaw most of my life and had no idea. Beautiful falls, not a strenuous hike, and had time to take a short trip around Moss Lake. there was no one else up there, we had it all to ourselves. weather was good, only a little snow at the base of the falls.

Three generation family hiking trip with the youngest being 5. Some muddy spots and quite a few puddles across the trail and even a couple spots with running water flowing across the trail, had waterproof hiking boots and it was great. Some nice viewpoints and it was nice to hear the running water nearby. Enjoyed my time in nature!

Beautiful, fun hike! Completed this yesterday in the pouring rain with a 4 year old and he loved it - great hike for kids!

Started at dawn after some rain fell, so I donned my microspikes a short way up the goat trail since it got a little slippery. extremely difficult on the way up, but pretty short, thankfully! I didn't see any distinct trail markers, so I'm not even sure if I "completed" it or not.

It was ok there were some good view points

Love this trail but as the weather is improving so is the traffic. It's easy enough my 6 year old can do it with ease yet we still feel like we're getting a workout while enjoying a nicely maintained path. The restrooms are also nicely maintained. Definitely recommend if you're looking for a basic trail.

Plenty of snow on the way up to the falls. Even more on the way down the loop. Poles and spike were needed. Fun trail.

Went on this hike Jan. 16 2018, it had powdered snow everywhere, easy hike hiked all the way to the base of the waterfall in powdered snow. It is very cold this time of year and because going to the base of the waterfall because of the powdered snow your feet will sink in

Nice gravel trail around entire lake. State Park Discover Pass needed.

Its a great trail if your looking for a workout... which I’m sure is the intention for the trail.
I’m not an experienced hiker but I scaled to the top. I was extremely winded though, I had to seriously push myself. There wasn’t too many viewpoints but it felt super cool looking down the hill and seeing how high you are. All in all I thought it was a cool hike. Heavily trafficked.

A quick short, steep work-out hike. No views at the top but on a clear day, you may be able to see the Rainier from some off trail points

This was a great hike with a wonderful view when you get to the top. What a beautiful day to get out and see this today. We had our 7 and 8 yr old with us, they did great.

Well maintained trail with beautiful views of the lake from time to time. Saw about 15 people during the walk on a weekday afternoon.
