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.

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

We had a great time, the falls was cascading down, creating a rainbow to see. We took some friends with and they said that they will come again in the summer. There were only eight of us on the tour and the driver went out of her way to make it very personal. Thank You......

Worth seeing, but not Niagara. two view points, one below falls, where you may get wet, and presumably the place to see Rainbow, which we did not see. Second part way up, moderate slope getting up there. Short walk to the old school which is a... More

Love these beautiful falls and yes we could actually see a rainbow from the mist. We biked about 3 miles from the landing to the falls and then hiked a short way to the lower lookout. Don't miss going to the top lookout. That is where we were actually able to see the rainbow. Just beautiful!

It was easy to get to by rented bicycle at the Lodge at Stehekin and we could have spent hours picnicing there.

The trial is well maintained and the falls are well worth the short hike. The lower pool is spectacular but don't miss the view from the upper falls. There are benches for relaxation if you so choose!

Pretty falls and still flowing strong in mid summer. Nice stop if you bike up valley. Good place to take a picnic lunch.
