This is a lovely trail year-round. If you don’t live in the area, it makes an excellent quick stop if you’re in the vicinity of the Hood Canal Bridge.

From the trailhead, follow the trail for a short distance before reaching a junction. Head left, following the trail through a forest full of ferns and moss. Be sure to take a moment to stop and read the excellent interpretive signs along the way. When you reach a junction, turn right and follow the trail downhill.

Be sure to pause at the pumphouse to note how high the water rose during a flood in the past. As you continue you on, you’ll reach a lovely creek before climbing some stairs to a view of the waterfalls. There are fences in places, which make the overlook not quite so stressful for parents.

After you’ve had your fill of the falls, continue on. You’ll cross a small bridge before reaching the first junction of your trip. Take a left here to return to where you started.
