The trial is well maintained and the falls are well worth the short hike. The lower pool is spectacular but don't miss the view from the upper falls. There are benches for relaxation if you so choose!

Pretty falls and still flowing strong in mid summer. Nice stop if you bike up valley. Good place to take a picnic lunch.

The Rainbow Falls Tour was great. We were there early in the season and a massive amount of runoff was coming down. We really saw the rainbow... The water cascaded down directly in front of us and then went down the gorge into the river. The bus driver and the Park tour guide were very helpful in pointing out the historical and natural sites along the route. there was also a stop at the old Stehekin school house. This school showed all of the valley history and gave us a personal insite of the local population. We plan to take another trip to Stehekin in the fall to see the colors and another trip to the falls.

These falls can first be heard, then seen as you approach from the parking area. From the viewing area you get a great view 50 ft or more to the top of the falls and another 50 ft. to the bottom. Fascinating to consider how many gallons of water are rushing down through these beautiful falls.

Run off was heavy so the falls was running full at this time.
That will change with the volume of water available.
