Beautiful hike! The falls are amazing. We look forward to spending time camping here next summer!

beautiful hike. My friend and I went and we were the only ones on the trail, so peaceful.

Have done this twice: last year in late June I did the loop and this year (while hiking PCT) I just went straight through Coyote Trail. It’s beautiful, but there is a lot of loose rock, meaning sketchy footing, meaning constantly calculating each step in order to not fall or skid down a steep cliff to critical injury. The trail is easy enough to follow, but not used enough or maintained enough for it to remain flat, so some slopped parts offer more obstacles. If you’re confident in your footing and not afraid of height, do it!!

I loved these views!! Went yesterday and arrived at 3pm and made it to the campsites by 430 or so. It’s an easy hike that goes through tons of beautiful fall foliage, and at this time all the leaves are smelling and crisp and like autumn rain! The sun was out and I got amazing views of Spirit Lake, St. helens, Rainier, Adams, and Mt Hood. It was crazy!!! Wish I could’ve made it to the top. Planned to camp there and completely forgot drinking water and discovered it was a dry trail. Had to turn around once I ran out. So pack a ton of water, and wear sunscreen! I’m definitely coming back to this hike. I loved that we didn’t go through many trees, because that meant open sky and views pretty much the whole way. I used directions from the WTA website and they helped so much. There’s a lot of junctions and sometimes it can be confusing. Print something out beforehand and make sure you know where you’re headed.
Forest roads along the way were paved for the most part with some random yet kinda common cracks and potholes. like really bad ones. They’re not gravel roads, but it looks like the road split in half, maybe due to the eruption of St. helens? Some of the paved roads are cracked and caved in so just drive slow. All vehicles should be good.

Great hike though an ancient forest, we seen some very cool Red Cedar and Hemlocks. Great pic spot ant the suspension bridge.

Loved this so much. Great for young kids. Tip: bring a flashlight for kids so they can explore inside the logs.

Super easy trail, I love the bouncy bridge.
Absolutely beautiful location, was a bit crowded.

Beautiful. Just long enough for a short family hike. Easy as far as terrain and trail with a mild uphill. Water is blue and gorgeous. Definitely a do again I Warner weather when you can dip into water.

What a beautiful hike!

Gorgeous! This really is a great stroll through old growth forest. Very easy to navigate for all ages. Suspension bridge is fun and very doable by families. Paths through forest are planked to prevent tromping through old growth area. No dogs allowed. Also, you do enter into the national Park here so be sure you are prepared to buy the day pass for $30 or $55 for a year. (Cash and credit accepted). A great place to go after or during morning coffee walk. It’s just up hill from Packwood toward Sunrise. I say this since description says its outside Randle and when we first left I was thinking we were headed out to Randle area and it’s more Packwood/White Pass. A definite return spot for a morning walk just to get out if you don’t have a full day to be out. Facilities at trail start.

Absolutely breath-taking. An easy but fulfilling trail through ancient forests. Suitable for all ages and skill-levels.

Easy trail with enormous trees. Mostly flat area.

Off of this loop trail you can also get to Grove of the Patriarchs and Ohanapecosh Springs. They are all interconnected trails. There is day use parking and toilets at the visitor center near Ohanapecosh Springs if you want facilities.

Perfect trail to stroll with the family. There's so many fun features like the little wood bridges, rock overhangs, hot springs, the waterfall itself with the neat rock formations that you can climb to get close to the water, etc. It was not busy at all at 10am, Labor Day.

The waterfall is so gorgeous! The trail is am easy loop but provides a decent workout, winding and going up and down, making the hike exciting. It insects with several other trails, so you can combine this hike with another. The is a convenient bridge overlooking the waterfalls. An unforgettable experience overall.

Easy, short, very informative hike among many types of trees, lots of them very old. You cross a suspended bridge. Wooden walkways make the trail very easy to follow. You can learn lots of interesting facts about the trees, forest life, forest animals, etc., along the trail. A very well known and frequented trail. There is a small parking lot and a bathroom at the trailhead.

Beautiful and shaded hike. Not too hard or steep. The falls were stunning! Enjoyed climbing closer to them and sitting in the cool mist on a hot day.

So beautiful and peaceful! The perfect length and difficulty. If you go on a cloudy day be prepared to not see Mt. Saint Helens in all its glory.

Perfect for a quick, easy hike for all skill levels. Trail is easily accessible and well marked. Arrived at 10:30am, so the trail was already active with other hikers on a Wednesday in late August. Falls and the water are beautiful, and the other parts of the trail are lush and serene. Nice areas on the rocks to sit and enjoy the views but expect other hikers and families.

Great family hike. The real gem about it is that if you access the trail from the nature loop trail behind the Ohanapecosh Visitor Center, you are rewarded with hot springs similar to ones at Yellowstone. There's more waterfalls than just Silver Falls, Laughingwater Creek was particularly beautiful. Silver Falls was gorgeous, I had never seen so much blue in a waterfall before, and the gorge that follows holds deep blue, crystal clear water. This trail also has a connector trail to the PCT and the Three Lakes Trail.

Beautiful hike that follows a river part of the way, and leads to the gigantic trees, accessible by boardwalk. Be sure to hike it early morning or in the late evening to beat crowds, there's a suspension bridge over the river that only allows one person to cross at a time.

Beautiful and worth it with plenty of breathtaking moments and wood bridges over smaller waterfalls along the way! *Bring a backpack with water and snacks for the trek and there is a lunch spot on the waterfall once you arrive! Also partially kid friendly lol

great short hike but if you're more ambitious you'll see a branch off to the Eastside trail as you head to the Grove. steady incline on a nice path that 3.5 miles in will take you to an incredible waterfall and footbridge. Eastside is empty!

Just did this trail because we were routed off the PCT due to fire. Parts of this trail are beautiful but there was too much loose gravel for me to really enjoy it.

Such a beautiful hike! My husband and I climbed to the top of the waterfall and just soaked in the view. The water is a pretty blue green color. The trail is fairly easy. I highly suggest this hike.

Did this hike earlier this week. This was an ok hike. Cool suspension bridge crossing about half way to the grove. I expected more ancient trees there and was a little disappointed. The trail was extremely busy for a Monday during a non holiday weekend.

Nice trail with Crystal clear water next to it. Took us about 45 min to do the whole loop stopping and taking pictures. Easy elevation and great for kids
