There were a couple really beautiful views coming up the trail including a gorgeous field of wildflowers. We went on a day with some clouds so we weren’t able to see the view point we wanted, but still very worth it. The hike up was 90% uphill and kicked our butts, but we were able to jog the whole way down pretty quickly which is super rewarding.

Not a hike for beginners, but a good workout for us 50 something’s in good condition. The trail is mostly well maintained, and easily discernible, but there are some trees blocking the path. No horses could make it very far, and I would not recommend this for young children. It was a great day hike for us, the old growth forest is beautiful, the river about a third of the way in was fascinating, and Glacier Lake is clear, cold, and remote. All in all, it was a great hike.

Trail is beautiful, incline after Covel Falls is where it becomes hard, but Angel Falls is totally worth the incline! Some trail signs are missing, but they are working on replacing them. Over all a great trail and the waterfalls are worth it!

Incredibly amazing place to take your kids and learn about old-growth forests - land of 1000 yr old giants! We definitely will be back again soon. Just inside the park!

This is a great hike for kids and beginners such as myself. Easy, yet beautiful. The trees are astonishing!

I spent many Saturdays on this hike in the summer of 2017. This is a very peaceful and beautiful hike. We had a range of ages and experience levels with us and will for sure be back!

My favorite trail is very beautiful.

I have never actually done this said trail! But burley mountain lookout itself is an old fire lookout in which you can drive too. However I wouldn’t recommend taking a full size. Coval creek and angel loop falls trail at cispus learning center offer a trail that takes you to the lookout! It’s a climb! Once you reach the top you can see Mount Rainier, St. Helens. and mount hood! Tongue mountain and the side of tower rock.
You are surrounded by wild blue berries! You can see more with a good set of binoculars! The view is breathtaking.

The falls were beautiful, trails were in good condition but poorly marked. A must see adventure. Recommend taking a picture of the trail so you can tell where you are at.

Lovely waterfalls in a pleasant forest setting. If you are short on time, you can also park your car on the side of the WA123 and take a connecting trail from there to make this into an even shorter there-and-back hike that doesn't take more than half an hour or so.

Roads are closed. We tried,to get there in Dec Mt Rainier hwy 123...closed

Easy hike among the giants.

Beautiful well developed trails, meandering through old growth forest. Easy and level. Restroom (outhouse) , clean and handy.

Quick and beautiful loop that can easily done by all levels of experience. It had a cool foot bridge with a gorgeous view of the river. Ancient forest was amazing and the air just smelt so pure (im from NYC so fresh air is rare...lol). Great trail, took about 45 mins to complete!

Did this hike on Sunday 10/15. Took about 3hrs up (with a couple nice breaks) and 2 hours down. Fall colors are very nice, snow starts about halfway up the trail and it’s probably a few feet at the top. However, the trail is packed down pretty good. I didn’t use spikes but saw other people did. Tremendous views at the top of Rainier, Adams, and Helens.

This is a short and easy hike which I took as an offshoot of the Silver falls trailhead at Ohanapecosh campground. It's a beautiful hike through an ancient forest and a must do!

I have to give this a five star rating because it is perfect for all skill levels including the elderly and young children.

The trail is accessible from Loop B within Ohanapecosh campground. It's very well maintained and mostly covered by a canopy of old growth forest.

Within a short distance their is a side trail to the hot springs. The waterfall is beautiful and refreshing. You can choose to go beyond this point to Grove of the patriarchs as I did and recommend.

I rated this hike at 3 stars if this is all your going to do. It's nice but not all that rewarding. You'll receive greater views and rewards by continuing further to Silver falls and Grove of the patriarchs.

Real easy!
Finished loop in 60mins excluding time chilling by the falls.

Feels and looks beautiful, misty and lush green after the rains.

We really enjoyed this hike. See my recording for more details.

Friend and I did this, we're not avid hikers but are pretty active in our lifestyles, and this was a toughy but well worth it. We had to try to beat the incoming storm so we had hustled up to the first ridge, took about 1h30m, i'm not sure exactly how far but thats where we turned around, seemed like we were maybe halfway in(based on the map) so but the storm turned us around, we jogged down which took 45 min, so all in all 2h15m - 2.5h. great views even half way up with a good obvious ridge/peak you can turn around at, good difficulty, but either have plenty of time to get up and down or be ready physically. besides the rain we didn't have any other weather difficulties, no snow, trail was mostly dust/dirt. nothing too sketchy, just steep the whole way.

Hiked yesterday. It was beautiful. I wish I had brought my bathing suit to jump into Walput lake after.

The trail is a bit busy with motorcycles but I'm into that so it doesn't bother me. The trail isn't closed per se but the road to it is washed out and construction crews are currently working on it and should have it passable by the fall. It is accessible by the Valley trail until then.

Drove 2 hours and the trail was closed! Maybe AllTrails could add trail status to its app

Angel Falls sparse late August but rock wall a delight. Make sure you have trail info, lacking signage!which could cause problems.

This trail is actually more like 9 miles to get out to Sheep Lake and the PCT, and should be rated as hard due to the extreme upward first two miles. After that, however, it levels out and is a gorgeous hike along the ridge to Sheep's Lake that serves as a great campsite for PCT hikers and more. We found a great wildflower meadow toward the end and our dog thoroughly enjoyed the water.

Great for kids and learning a thing or two. With a 3 year old and 10 week old, short easy hikes with fun stuff to look at are key. Although it is often crowded, this hike has everything a kiddo needs to keep entertained. Huge trees, a fun suspension bridge and a rocky area by the river to throw rocks. If your looking for something your grandma or toddler can do, this is the trail for you. Even if you don't fit those demographics the 1000 year old trees make the short walk worth it.

very easy, toddler friendly walk to the hot springs. Inside campground.

we stayed at ohanapecosh campground and walked there from the trailhead in the campground (walk to the falls, you'll see the sign for the grove trail toward the highest point of the falls). wore my boots for this section as there are some knots, roots systems and rocks. the trail dumps you out on to 123 across the street. pretty little adventure walk but the grove was insanely busy (Wednesday afternoon in august). this is a great place for people to go who want to be out in nature but don't really get out. also great for kids. little suspension bridge at the end to get to the final loop (we waited in line for about 10 minutes to cross). the loop at the end is 90% boardwalked. not my cup of tea due to all the people and their cell phones and selfies. definite tourist trap. do not recommend for the outdoor enthusiast; you'll just get irritated. great for families and small kids.
