Brief walk but great payoff with the mossy waterfall.

The trail was easy until you get closer to the falls. You walk over two bridges then go to a fork. This is the loop for the falls. If you take the right side it is very steep. If you take the left its much better, with another view of the falls but most of the way you can only fit one person at a time. The top is the view of the falls, with another trail that you can take, which we didn't. We went in the early afternoon when it was cloudy and it was not too packed but as the day got nicer it got more crowded. This was a tuesday.

My Fiance and I hiked this trail on June 19, 2017. The drive up was a little scary, only because of parts of it you will be driving on the side of a mountain. But it was very beautiful with plenty of overlooks. The scariest part is when you reach the Hurricane Ridge visitors center bc you cant really see the turn so it looks like you are going to drive off the mountain but no worries you are then in a huge parking lot. We did not see them but as your diving up look into the park, a couple of people we spoke with saw two sets of bears with cubs. The hike had its steep parts then flat and it goes back and forth. There were also plenty of deer, no bears. They did not care that there were people walking on this trail, they walked pretty close to us along the trail. They leave you alone and don't look for food like the deer on Long Island do. We made it most of the way up, but did not go all the way bc parts of the trail were covered in snow. This place will always be dear to me bc my boyfriend proposed to me while overlooking the mountains. So it's defiantly an idea for all of you guys.

beautiful views, snow covered portions easy to pass, very popular trail so we had to park further away

Loved this hike. The drive up to the trailhead is incredible, too. I saw marmots and deer, snow and views of the water and snow-capped mountains. The sign said the trail was 20% snow covered. There was snow, but it was easy enough to walk on. It's a short trail, but fairly steep for beginner hikers. I recommend this trail very highly.

dogs are not allowed in Olympic National Park! just a heads up.

Nice easy trail, requires a little scrambling over some fallen trees. Saw a banana slug on our hike.

The drive up was beautiful and the hike was even better. Even though it was cloudy the view was still fantastic. I recommend this hike 100%.

physically challenging, yes. amazing views! didn't do the rope climb to the top (a little sketchy) but it was still absolutely amazing. totally worth it!

Awesome trail that's pretty quick with great views. Saw elk and marmot on the hike. Even with some snow on the trail definitely worth the hike. Views of the Olympic mountains are unrivaled.

Fairly difficult hike, made it up in just under an hour. The hike is a constant, steep incline, but the view at the top is amazing. This was my first time in Olympic National Park, and it was amazing!
