This is an easy run to a 130 foot waterfall in a beautiful setting.

Overview

This short out and back requires only a small amount of work for its reward. It can feel very isolated and peaceful mid-week, but more crowded on weekends.

Runner Notes

This trail was a former logging road, so the grade is steady and mellow. Can become muddy.

Description

This family friendly trail begins gradually on a wide, former logging road. The uphill is non-taxing over a smooth surface. You'll hear the rush of the falls on a slight descent before you arrive at the falls themselves. The tiered waterfall, mossy rocks and pools are especially impressive after a rain. The last 100 yards of the trail is a bit more narrow with a drop-off to one side, so keep an eye on kids here.

Flora & Fauna

Rhododendron, mushrooms.

Road is rough but doable with two-wheel drive. Trail is in perfect condition.

It's so close you can almost reach it. Head just around the corner to see Murhut Falls.

You can just make out the snow-capped peaks through windows in the trees.
