This was a very short & easy hike to the Falls. It's very pretty & relaxing! There's not a lot of parking or a very large area to stand & see the Falls, so go early. This is a restroom here & a picnic table.

There are a number of waterfalls that you can hike to in Olympic National Park, but none are so readily accessible. It's a short 0.2 mile round trip on a fully paved surface, making it wheelchair accessible. The falls are well worth the short walk. There are also benches for sitting. If you make the drive to the falls, consider... More

A very short walk and the path is all paved. I easily pushed my son in his wheelchair to see this little gem. Well worth a visit.

Park staff recommended this falls because of limited time and it was a great, easy stop. Very short and easy walk to the approximately 50 foot falls. Very serene setting.

We couldn't go ahead with original plan but was recommended Madison Creek Falls in Elwah. We had a sketchy map but there was nothing marked on the main road to promote this. What a shame. When we found it and parked it is a 2 minute walk to the falls in a pretty setting. Drove on a little further through... More

This can be a quick stop to get out of the car for a few minutes. A pretty waterfall at the end of a short trail. There is an outhouse and several picnic tables around. Make sure to take in the sights of the river across the street from the parking lot.

Relatively easy to hike/walk to the falls, even on a rainy April day. Bring your rain gear (always) in Olympic Nat Park, as it is a huge rain forest. Trails are well maintained and marked. There are a number of 'side' trails for the more adventurous.

This was our favorite hike--super short and with a great waterfall payoff. Also a good family picture spot. There is a nice field at the parking lot for a picnic or to let the kids run around a bit, the hike is short, and busy but everyone seemed nice.

I've visited the Falls many times; during the summer a great breath of moist air but also lovely with frost or a bit of snow; very easy path from parking lot.

Easy to do. Very popular. This is a great hike to do in like an hour. Takes you right to a waterfall.
