We hiked the 2.3 miles to the falls and back to the trailhead. Nice wide gravel path. If no rain, shorts and tennis shoes are fine. Dogs with bear bells worked for us, but be prepared for the surprise bicyclist as this is a family friendly trail. Great view of the falls and salmon run. Very little elevation change and no pot-holes. We didn't see any bears, but lots of warnings about them. We took bear bells and a sidearm. Great little trail.
