As soon as we landed, we ate lunch at the Lodge which had mediocre food at reasonable prices. That gave us enough time to wander around and throw rocks on the beach until the Rainbow Falls tour at 12:30. If I were to do it again, I would walk to the Bakery and have lunch there, before walking to the... More

The waterfalls were wonderful. They were flowing a lot so there was a lot of water coming over. Pleasant, easy thing to do. Would highly recommend this tour.

I have been to Rainbow Falls many times. This trip I was able to see a complete rainbow across the falls - beautiful!

Nice little walk to the falls on an ADA trail. It is a nice place to stop if you only have a few hours at Stehekin or if you are on a bike ride.

Short hike to a great vista...all could do this....easy trail. Do on your own so that you can spend some time and enjoy without the crowds.

Pretty and peaceful on our way back on bikes from the ranch. Avoid when the bus of day trippers flood the place.

Beautiful waterfall, a must see in Stehekin. Rented bikes and rode to the falls. Enjoyed our picnic lunch on the enormous picnic table at the base of the falls.

Gorgeous water fall, the second landing is a beautiful view you will get wet the water is cold, crisp, and clear. We rented bikes and rode the 3.5 miles to the falls.

So the walk up the mountain hurts... a lot. Make sure you have good footwear on as it's so rocky and uneven, if you are into hiking then this is a perfect trail, if not, the falls that await you at the top are well worth it so carry on and don't give up! When we eventually reached the top... More

Wow! Our trip began when we boarded the Lady Express of Chelan for the 2.5 hour cruise to Stehekin, Washington. We'd called the Stehekin Lodge a few days prior to our arrival to find out if the waterfall was accessible. It's late March following a stretch of several warm days and a winter that delivered only a fraction of the... More
