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.

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

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
