Road is good. At the first Y in the trail if you stay right it’s much easier. When you get to the mud you’re almost there. It was a beautiful day out, not many on the trail, only saw 3 other groups. Met some nice women from Alaska. I’d love to know deep the base of the Falls is?

Road in and trail is in great condition, falls could use some clean up of trash. Saw a rattlesnake on trail.

Nice easy hike but worth it at the end.

Fun little hike, easy for kids. A few bad muddy spots but fun!

A lot of fun. Pretty easy hike most of the way. By the waterfall there is a rock formation that you can climb.

Beautiful view of the waterfall, short and easy, several muddy ares


Long steep rocky climb. Great views.

Beautiful spring like day. The snow and ice pack mentioned in the previous is mostly gone, except closer to the falls. Lots of mud. Huge portions of the trail were nothing but mud, and hard to avoid. The kids had fun, despite slipping in the mud. Lots of college kids out today

Really nice drive with young children along the Yakima River. Good hills and some areas actually would require 4 wheel drive in the rain.

Easy hike given the trail is well established and despite the half mile of pretty steep incline it’s not that bad. 5 miles round trip so expect to stay a couple of hours at least. Some tumble weed this time of year. Beautiful views.

Trail was covered in ice. Very dangerous conditions on 2/11/18. The drive up appeared to be favorable... but the packed ice in the vicinity of the trail made it treacherous.

Try it again in after a few more weeks.

Nice and quiet, the main trails are flat with some muddy ruts here and there, but the side trails got a little more interesting, i took a few all the way down and found a couple camping spots right up next to the riverbank which would also make great fishing spots. I explored a few other side trails all the way up the side, where it got a little steeper with slightly larger rocks to climb over, to the top of the hills and when i went it was raining so it was foggy up there but i bet on a clear sunny day you could get a full 360 view, but still even at the top of the first hill by the power box you can get a great view of the valley

Goff horseback riding trail but very rocky. Great views from the top looking into Yakima Canyon!

Long steep rocky climb to great views overlooking Yakima canyon and Roza Dam. Best in the spring when the fliers are abundant. You may see mountain sheep up on the steep sides too

easy hike in and out.

this is no longer a loop. half is closed to motor vehicles. this trail should be marked as easy.

This is a really fun trail a few snakes lots of deer kids loved it

This is a great recovery day, relaxing trail!!

It's a fun little hike! The end is the real pretty part, or I guess what I mean is I wouldn't do the hike if it were not for the pretty falls at the end. The hike on is pretty but nothing special. If you have dogs or young kids getting to the bottom of the falls (where the real view is) would be pretty difficult. We also saw a snake on the rocks getting down there, it was small and didn't appear dangerous but it made me think it would be a good spot for rattlesnakes. If you go, bring a beverage to enjoy below the falls- it's really pretty.

fun and easy, takes about 30 minutes, at a 6 year olds pace. slightly difficult to get to the bottom of the water fall with little kids.

it was fun watch out for rattlesnake

Great trail, not a hard trek, not over run with people (passed people on the way there and back but that's all we encountered) and the waterfall is worth the heat!

I love it

Easy hike, took my 7 year old, and backpacked my 2 year old. It ended up being right around 3 miles round trip. Once you get to the water fall, it's kind of hard to get down, due to the loose dirt and rocks, but manageable. Definitely a gorgeous view, and can't wait to go again!

Loved this trail and waterfall!

great hike! saw beautiful butterflies all over and no snakes! Getting to the bottom of the waterfall was definitely a challenge but well worth it.

This trail is desert, high chapparrel, Forest, with a sage meadow on summit. Bring extra water or filter pills as there is a creek flowing down the canyon. Most of the canyon is a gradual rise, and reaching the summit is worth the trek. you see the Ellensburg valley, and the Stewart Mt. range in the distance. The wildflower are beautiful ly diverse, and the low Meadows and rustic homestead are about half way up. Small creatures and snakes abound, and bring repellent for flyers.
