Good Hike
Sep 2021
Most of the trails away from the Elk falls area are easy hike, except in the area near the Deer Falls with some elevation. All in all, good hike to enjoy this wooded area.

Thundering waterfalls, wonderfully maintained hiking trails
Sep 2021
There is nothing like viewing and listening to the thunder of a waterfall which you can do from the rocky outcrop, viewing platform or suspension bridge. From the parking lot it is a easy 1/2 mile walk up and back from the waterfalls. Should you desire to hike further, there are additional trails to satisfy your urge to stretch your legs. So very beautiful, a MUST SEE & DO.

An educational stop

Good easy trails here with interesting information about salmon and their spawning. Well signposted. Go to the suspension bridge and the lookout just before the bridge for a good view of the falls.

Wonderful park and trails, that takes you to the suspension bridge where you have a great view of the waterfall and all the surrounding beauty. Well maintained and worth the stop.

Beautiful park visit
Jul 2021
We were traveling with a small baby so couldn't go down the stairs or across the suspension bridge, but the forest trails and views along the river were still worth a visit. Trails are mostly stroller friendly. Will be back.
