The falls are pretty and the trail is short and easy to get to. It makes a nice walk before or after dinner!

The hiking was excellent and the snow made for a real challenge. We took it up to the old shack at the end of the trail and didn't regret the 8 miles.

Another site to be viewed as one hikes the Perimeter Trail. There is a trail that goes directly to the falls also.

This is a rocky hike up to the falls. Loved It! You can get right up to the waterfall. Not a long hike from the parking lot.

Easy hike/walk to get to these lower falls, even though it is UP HILL on the way to get there (down hill on the way back of course). Just take it slow if you are from lower elevations.

Easy hike to get to the base. Can climb and get close to the base of the falls. Great views, can feel the mist of the water and very beautiful.

First, I have to say that is was a real trial to get there. Not the trails fault. We started out doing several other trails, one of which was for the lower Cascade, but coming from above. Turns out I'm not ready for that trail. :-) Still we had a great day hiking and when we finally came at the... More

This was a beautiful waterfall with great places to take pictures. We saw one group of people taking senior pictures there. It would also be a great place to take engagement or bride pictures. You do have to do some climbing, but nothing that can't be done in the right pair of shoes.
