We hiked Mt Proctor coming down the fairy creek trail. Bite of a grunt. 3:30 to summit but a fantastic hike and well worth the effort. Starts at visitors center and is very well signed.

A good and quiet hike to end the day. The trail was very quiet and upon reaching the falls we found it to be extremely lush with vegetation and trees.

Well worth hiking to the falls. Only downside is that the area is going to be chopped up into home lots soon.

Did this hike in early May with some snow patches on the trail where in the shade. As an experienced hiker I would rate this as Easy, a well marked trail steadily climbing through the trees. I would disagree that this is a trail for...More

Beautiful relatively short hike that takes you along the creek then up to the falls. We took our dog along and the whole family enjoyed the walk. The trail gets enough use that it gets packed down enough that you don’t need snowshoes. The trail...More

This trail is just over 4 km. So around 1 1/2 miles. It is a nice easy hike. Not challenging but fun.yy
