Pleasant hike to these falls. We went in the afternoon and the sun was so pretty coming thru the trees. The falls are gorgeous.

A short and easy walk will get you to a very pretty waterfall. Along the way are some magnificent cedar, hemlock, and Douglas fir trees. About half way is brook with moss covered stones that is great for photography.
