This is a moderate to easy difficulty hike of about a mile. Good parking, well marked and wide trail. Restroom at trailhead.

Thunderbird Falls is a fairly short easy hike to the overlook, a short slightly harder hike down creekside, and even better if you ware willing to work your way to near the plunge pool of the falls. This is part of the state park so remember to pay to park. There is plenty of parking at the trailhead. The main trail is wide and easy with few climbs. The trail from near the overlook to the creekside is muddy and steeper. You can keep going even beyond that though if you are adventurous. With some careful stepping on rocks along the gorge wall (if you want to keep your feet dry) you can make your way all the way to the plunge pool at the base of the falls. Then you have the falls all to yourself!…

The hike to the falls was pleasant. There are a few slight inclines but it's very easy for anybody to walk. My wife was intrigued with the flowers and the foliage and you can hear the rushing water as you go long. Its also nice for photography enthusiast. Only downside to the hike are the mosquitoes but we survived.…

All our friends find the walk to the falls a pleasant experience. It is an easy walk and is well hidden in the Alaskan "wilderness" A pleasant surprise to view it in the midst of all the greenery.

But not much of a "Falls" to see in the winter, as it is frozen. Probably a great site in the spring and summer, but very lack luster frozen, but still had a nice hike getting there.
