This is about a mile hike to the falls but only 1/2 mile to view them. There is some of it that may be steep for some people. It sure was pretty once we got to the end. It was worth the hike! (Christa)

Stopped here for a short walk on our drive to Denali park. It takes about 15 minutes to walk to the falls at a brisk pace. The falls are quite pretty. The only issue we had was the process of paying for parking.

This was a nice easy hike, and great for someone like my wife who taps out (and gets pretty mean!) after about 3 miles. The trail starts off with a steepish, but short, incline and eventually evens out. The width of the trail is nice...More

It was a nice walk to the falls. It was an easy walk. It was well worth the 2 mile walk. Walked down to the edge of the falls and it was wonderful.

Right off the highway, nice parking lot, not to crowded, can do a little climbing to get excellent pictures if you want although pictures without climbing where also fantastic.

Nice easy hike with gentle incline up to the falls. Signage for the cuttoff isn't great, so you need to watch for it.

This is an easy hike to the falls; hence, a lot of people will be present. The falls are small, and mostly obscured by the foliage during summer months. I wouldn't go out of my way to visit this place among all else there is...More
