This hike travels over several small ridges through beautiful forest to striking Spray Falls, which provides tired hikers with a nice misting on hot summer days. This hike has no significant elevation gain, but it trundles over rolling hills all the way to Spray Falls. A trail construction crew named Spray Falls in 1883 because they felt that the cascading falls broke “into a mass of spray.”The well-maintained, heavily used trail winds through beautiful forest. Expect to see many other park visitors; please reduce your impact by staying on the trail. Head to the south end of Mowich Lake, past the restrooms and Mowich Lake Campground to the Wonderland Trail.
