Event Description

Level A/B, 3.4 miles RT to lower falls and back, 6.1 miles round trip for upper falls , 700 feet elevation gain. This is a relatively easy hike for the casual hiker and worth every step. The trail is good and well maintained and there are only few and short moderately steep areas. The waterfall that is really a triple waterfall is at the end is worth the walk. This has to be one of the most spectacular falls in the Pacific Northwest. As you near the end of the hike and hear the falls you will want to look up. You can only see the top stage of the falls from one point on the trail and it''s rather surreal seeing all that water apparently cascading out of the trees. Up close the second stage is very powerful and the third is a 100 ft spout into a punch bowl. On a hot day the temperature at the end of the trail closest to the falls drops 8-10 degrees due to the mist. Bring water, and snacks or lunch to refuel while we enjoy the views from the top!

RSVP’s plz; may cancel due to rain.

Worthy mention: 8:00 AM early start due to popularity of these hikes!  Finish time 3 - 5 PM depending on if we stop for refreshments.  Michelle Davis  Leader   phone 503-319-3063
