The trail starts from the Takakkaw Falls parking area and heads north along a wide, very well-made trail. The trail will narrow as you progress.
Along the way, there are a few short side trails to a few waterfalls that are well worth the extra trip, but these trails can be much muddier than the main trail.
Eventually, the trail becomes singletrack and gets a little steeper, but it never gets too step. The trail ends at the base of Laughing Falls which is very impressive. Return back to the trailhead where you can quickly take the Takakkaw Falls Trail
