Easy little hike, pretty darn short though. I wouldn’t plan on this being your entire day’s activity if you’re driving out from Seattle/Tacoma/Olympia.

Fun trip in the early spring as the falls were still frozen. Trail up to the falls was easy going and wide with beautiful trees along the way. Climb up to falls is steep and a bit icy but doable for just about anyone. Stunning view from the top.

Rainy, muddy, super beautiful and peaceful. Saw deer and salmon

Great trail for a nice walk, well-maintained. Muddy spots after the rains last couple days, but the trail was in good shape. The falls were beautiful!

Easy and beautiful

Super great time. Easy hike with some elevation gain, especially at the end. Great views of creek, falls, and rainforest.

Had the trail all to myself after the offshoot for Marymere falls! Had to turn around after a couple miles, made it past a landslide that had wiped out part of the trail but couldn't get around a tree that had fallen over a bridge. Probably best to wait until summer when they'll have a chance to get the trail cleaned up again.

Amazing easy hike. Seeing the PNW on this trail will give you everything you need. Lush greenery and beautiful waterways. The actual waterfall was breathtaking (literally) on 02/01/2020. It was like the Mist Trail in Yosemite when it’s at full force. A lot of gusts and water droplets everywhere. Absolutely gorgeous. 10/10 would recommend. The beginning of the trial is relatively flat but eventually it goes into well maintained switchbacks. The switchbacks are nothing to fear, there are maybe 2 or 3 of them.

Did this hike at the end of January, 2020. It was a gorgeous day, not a drop of rain and this easy hike to the waterfall added to an already perfect day. The views are wonderful, the forest is so pretty. 3.64 km or 2.26 miles.

A straightforward, low-impact hike up to some beautiful falls along Barnes Creek with a well-kept trail near Lake Crescent. We parked at the Storm King ranger station and made a loop out of the trail going past the Lake Crescent Lodge and through the Monuments in Time trail. There were a few downed trees and muddy patches which we made a bit more challenging for ourselves by doing right before sunrise so it was near dark and tricky to navigate back to our starting point but we eventually made it there. I look forward to returning and trying some of the other trail offshoots in the future!

The north Olympics are beautiful. My family and enjoyed this short hike.

Went this morning, and it a great little easy hike. Absolutely beautiful, so much green! Not many people on the trail on the way to the falls, but saw lots of people on our way back.

i did this hike, two days ago on Wed, 01/29. One word to describe it, gorgeous. This hike, with the mossy trees and picturesque waterfalls, exemplifies the unique beauty of and why this area is designated as a Natl Park. Come prepared to be wet as you truly are in a rain forest.

Always a must do when I'm in the area. First time doing it during the winter...the moss and forest was super green. Falls were more full than during summer. Don't skip this one!

Really quick and easy trail. The last bit to get up to the falls is steep with steps but glorious. Well maintained and a nice wander through the woods in the middle of winter! No pups allowed here, though.

Husband and I got there early in the morning and beat the human traffic. We completed both Hall of Mosses and Spruce Nature trails. It did rain the whole time, but the vegetation offered enough cover. The area was BEAUTIFUL. The streams were clear enough to see the salmon and we were pleasantly surprised by Roosevelt Elk grazing. I would love to go back one day.

Very pretty, but there were several thick trees blocking the path that stopped us from seeing the falls.

Great hike! Beautiful wooded area with lots of moss on the trees. The water along the trail is SO clear!! You go over 2 bridges and then there is a loop trail to the left that goes up a few ‘flights’ of stairs. Lots of people but I was able to get pictures with no one in them. Lots of fun trees for the kids to play in and around on the trail. My 4 and 12 year olds both loved it. Some muddy sections but nothing you can’t go around.

very beautiful walk and an amazing waterfall. Not too challenging but a good amount of stairs to get to the waterfall.

Park near beautiful Crescent lake, take a nice stroll in a dense forest full of interesting mushrooms to reach a nice waterfall into a petite pond without breaking a sweat. Just do it. It’s a worthwhile 45 minute activity.

It's not too often you say, "I want to see all that moss!" This trail delivers, making for a gorgeous, surreal experience.
