Do not be misled by the moderate-looking statistics for this outing—in its early stages the trail ascends steeply on bluffs above the falls. Try to choose a clear, sunny day for this hike since its views are superb—of the falls themselves, of the Tantalus Range to the southwest and, on the return trip, of the upper Squamish River and the peaks on the divide between the Squamish and Ashlu Rivers. Clear day or not it is an attractive trail, with some glorious moss gardens to admire: yellow and bronze on the rocks and bright green in the depths of the forest. To make a loop, you can descend by the road rather than reversing your ascent route.

This hike is challenging right from the start! The views are spectacular as you climb and scramble next to a waterfall! Some areas along the rocks can be difficult to find your way so be aware! The great part is once you reach the top you can either take the logging road down or climb back the way you came!!
