Great short hike when visiting Lake Crescent, my family has been coming here for more than 40 years. The old growth is awesome and the falls are quite pretty. Great for kids but keep them close after crossing Barnes Creek. There are several log bridges with simple handrails and steep drop offs near the falls. Saw a child rush across log bridge, slip and fall into ravine below. Banged up with bloody nose but not seriously hurt.

Fantastic. Excellent short and easy trail to a stunning powerful waterfall. Beautiful hike through the forest leading to the waterfall.

Easy trail with a beautiful waterfall at the end. Slightly crowded.

Easy trail with an impressive waterfall at the end. You'll definitely want your camera to capture the beauty of the path and the falls. We walked past the falls a bit to see more of the little river upstream. It's a great area to settle in and do some meditation and get your nature on!

NOT DOG FRIENDLY!!! We were turned away at the entrance of the Sul Doc National Forest entrance.

Steady, continuous and moderately rocky climb that was rewarded by waterfalls along the way and a pretty lake view. We hiked on July 4th and encountered very few people. The mosquitoes made it difficult to eat lunch by nearby Fawn Lake, so we sat on the little bridge with a view of Deer Lake that had a little breeze. If we came back to backpack we would choose the campsites we passed on the way rather than lakeside because the mosquitoes were such a nuisance. A fellow hiker spotted a bear across the lake at the small meadow, but our furry friend did not appear again. We wanted to hike the High Divide/Seven Lakes Basin, but apparently there was snow a couple of miles past this point and we didn’t risk it. Would love to return.

Easy and rewarding trail. Falls are a cool 3 horse tail falls. We continued on for a bit to love rd s lane trail, which was pretty. Though pretty much everything in that part of the world is.

Fun hike and great falls! It's easy too!

Amazing trail. Giant trees along the route but very easy hike. A couple nice viewpoints of the waterfall.

The trail kind of keeps going into a well established but sketchy trail to a set of upper falls. Be very careful if you do that section though as it gets a bit slippy and really close to the edge. Not an official part of the trail.

By far my favorite day in ONP! These falls are a site to see. Don’t miss this one!

Short hike to the falls, but beautiful and well worth it!

Short trail, good for all level of hikers.

Although many may go for the view of the falls at the end, don't forget to take in the views on the way there. There are alot of neat sights to see such as the trees and moss on your way to the falls. I would consider this trail heavily trafficked.

The short trip is so worth the beauty but it does have its difficulty for those less experienced or out of shape. I did see people with their kids though. Views can be spectacular even if you know that the main attraction is a bridge over a waterfall. It still ends up being so much more.

One of the best falls I have seen! Super easy trail

Short and easy. Beautiful falls. Make it part of a full day of mini-hikes and plan on living wet.

Hiked on May 4, 2018. Fun, moderate trail! Snow starts about three-quarters of the way up in patches and it’s basically a snowy wonderland by the time you reach the lake. Make sure you bring warm layers! The snow is easy enough to get through as long as you have decent hiking boots and an extra pair of socks. The third Canyon Creek Camping Site is still snowed in.

Great easy hike, a little climbing over a downed tree, but the falls are just beautiful. Lots of gorgeous pics of moss covered rocks with water flowing over.

Super easy hike, great views. Part of the trail higher up past the falls is snowed out this time of year.

Super easy hike, great view of the falls.

Great hike. beautiful lush greenery and creeks along the way. there is a large tree in the way so go around it. falls are roaring this time of the year

easy hike with a nice little incline at top for a great view of the falls

Went up last week and it was beautiful seeing everything covered in snow and ice. The steps were pretty icy but good hiking boots will help keep you off your backside.

Hiked this trail in September. The weather was perfect, and the trail was beginner level. Hiking in Olympic National Park is like hiking through a dreamland.

Well managed trail, fairly busy, but the waterfall is spectacular.
