Carter Falls Trail

Carter Falls Trail Professional Review and Guide

"This route follows the Wonderland Trail east of Longmire through some of the oldest, most beautiful ancient forest left in Washington’s Cascades, while providing views of the crashing waters of the milky Nisqually River.

Families appreciate the nearly flat, easy trek through the trees along the first half of the route, while those with an appetite for more adventure enjoy the last half of the hike as it turns to follow the Paradise River upstream to a pair of pretty waterfalls. Note: The bridge over the Nisqually River was completely wiped out by the 2006 floods. A footlog was put in place in July 2007, but always check with the ranger before venturing out to make sure you can safely cross the river."
