Quick Hike

Bumpy road led us to a 1/4 mile trail to walk along the creek and view the falls. It was nice to get out of the car on this quick stop.

Yes, the road is a little rough for a short section and narrow most of the drive, so drive slowly, but the reward is a unique 1/4 mile walk through old growth forest that leads to a trail closed sign with a view of the falls. The trail is closed due to downfall but adds to this unique opportunity! Ten... More

The road leading up to the trail to the falls is very rough, lots of sunken in holes so drive slow and be watchful of these obstacles. It's not much of a hike to see the falls. Once you get a view of how tall the falls are, stop there. If you go down the steps you'll be disappointed because... More

Be incredibly careful on the road in. Lots of potholes but worth the drive. It's a nice short hike in. Right now a lot is blocked off from fallen trees but the falls are beautiful even from far away.

Munson Creek Falls are beautiful and are accessible on a short trail from the parking lot. The road to the parking lot is only partially paved but is passable year round.

The walk to the viewpoint is very short...this would be an ok outing with young kids, and on a hot afternoon, the shady trail was surprisingly cool. There are a couple of picnic tables at the parking lot where you could have a snack or meal, too. However, if you're looking for a longer walk, this would not be a... More

viewing is limited by a section of fallen trees. The forest service is working but it is slow going so they do not damage the forest that remains so probably next spring it will look better than it did before. Be warned that the road to the attraction is mainly gravel and kind of slippery. What you can see is... More

This was an easy walk from the parking area with a picnic table close by for anyone waiting at the car. Your way is blocked so prevents getting too close but that's probably a good thing for preservation. Pretty little walk on a shady path.

After many years of driving by this we finally stopped and took the stroll to the falls. The road is a little bumpy, just go slow. There is room for about 8 cars at the trail head. The trail is only 1/4 mile long and easy going. There are some stairs in certain places. I can see that in the... More

One can travel in by car, but watch out for lumber trucks. The fall is best in Spring, yet fall leaf time is lovely too. Go slow driving to the location.
