The falls are nice and if you continue, their are plenty of things to see. The abandoned railroad trestle, the fishing pond etc. Definitely worth the time.

This was such a fun place to visit! Parking and walking were easy. There are some steepish hills, but overall not a bad hike for out of shape and beginner hikers. We saw an owl on a close branch as soon as we got there,...More

The falls are very beautiful and peaceful to watch. A walk along the path is quite delightful. I really love the bridge and the history.

When I first arrived here I complained about the rain. But now that summer is here it's absolutely gorgeous. This is the perfect place to take the kids for a nice hike or just a family get-together.

This is a nice place for an afternoon walk. It's a clean park in a college town (Western Washington University) and a good place to get out and streach your legs. Very Peaceful!

Lots of opportunities for pictures, bird watching, and getting in your daily steps. Bring a picnic lunch and enjoy!

Yes, there are many places in the park to read a book. If you want to be near the falls, I would of course bring a folding chair or spread a blanket.

Hi, I would download a pdf of the available trails, there are 3-5 miles of trails in the park, but at least an hour on the main trail. There is a PDF of the trails you can dowload, I can't post a link here, as it's... More
