“Surprisingly Huge Waterfall”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Go when the spring run off is occurring Late Feb through May. It's impressive. It possible to hike to the top of the falls literally over the falling water. Even if you don't have a fear of heights you'll be nervous.

“Very pretty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Drove up for the day with my sister and 1yr old daughter. There are some nice walking paths. Nice views of the falls. A little park area where you can have a picnic. We threw a blanket down and had lunch right there on the grass after walking the trails.

“dramatic, unexpected!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

Not too far from Spokane. A dramatic, beautiful place in the middle of the palouse. Nice viewpoints for people who can't walk far. Trail for the adventurous up behind the falls.

“Nature at it's best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

Visited right after spring rains so the falls were really full and beautiful. Great walking paths for hiking and small park for picnics. Parking can be an issue and they make you purchase parking pass to park. Really? We all pay our fair share of taxes. Let us visit the parks without expecting more out of our wallets.

“Amazing and natural waterfall”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

There is a small campsite and a picnic area up on the high ground above the waterfall. Trails are all over the place to view the falls from various viewpoints. In the spring the marmots and their babies run around the rocks.
