Need to Know

Given the easily accessible nature of this run, and the impressive nature of the falls, this route is often very crowded.

Description

This route begins at the East Inlet Trail. Start up the East Inlet Trail and look for the Adams Falls Trail to branch off to the right. Turn right and follow it to the overlook of the falls. By no means the largest cascades in the park, Adams Falls are still very impressive, especially during the spring snowmelt.

Follow the path to another observation point and eventually back to East Inlet Trail. Turn left onto East Inlet Trail and follow it back to the trailhead.
