About This Trail

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

This relatively easy trail will lead you through an old growth forest in Chehalis Valley. The trail follows the Chehalis River as it winds through western hemlock, red cedar and Douglas fir trees.  The trails wind around the campground and through.

The falls  are relatively small but when the sun catches the spray they emit, you’ll see how the park earned its name. The trail down to the falls is located near the far end of the parking lot.

Drop off risks along the river. Carriers are recommended

Being outside is how I re-charge. It gives me perspective, fills me with gratitude and provides an opportunity to disconnect from the chaos of everyday life. I am fortunate to share this passion with my amazing husband and our son.  I was born and raised in the PNW but I love exploring any area I can get to. One of my favorite things about Hike it Baby is that I have a built in community of friends to provide trail suggestions anywhere we go.
