We did this trail in the 4th week of May, the summer tourists were only beginning. It was only mildly crowded up to the falls but once you go past and make the hike to the top the crowds thin out drastically. These switch backs are pretty steep and kicked my butt. I'm in average shape but my aerobic ability needs serious improvement. Gorgeous hike with quite the rewarding view from the top. From there we actually continued on up trail 441 to 420 to 419 doing the complete Wahkeena Falls loop. Favorite hike to date hands down. Water and waterfalls everywhere, lush greenery and very few people along the way. Flowers and mushrooms everywhere. Amazing! Def go before or after the summer tourist season if crowds aren't your thing.

I love this run, but I prefer to go earlier to avoid the crowds! Once you make it to the top the crowds do get lighter from there onto your next adventure. I like that you have two pretty good options to make it into a quick loop or to go all the way up to Larch Mountain.

Always pretty, sometimes a bit crowded.
