Beautiful trail -
Maintained and great view of the falls
But for sure more than 200 ft of elevation gain- according to my Fitbit closer to 1000. Definitely doable - took two first time hikers and added the Grove of the Patriarchs.

It was a nice short hike. Up-and-down some hills but not hard at all. The waterfall was beautiful and easy to get to!

Great hike, beautiful view of the falls. A little tiring for people who aren't in great shape.

Very nice and easy hike with multiple ways to access the falls. I went early and had the falls entirely to myself for an hour and a half!

Great quick and easy hike. Saw people of all ages on the trail. Not very strenuous, but the views of the falls are fantastic. With how dry our summer has been the falls are a little low but nonetheless still a great view. Good trip for families looking for a quick day hike.

Gave it 3 stars initially, but I'd go back over and over again to take new people. The views are beautiful and everyone should take the time to see them.

Great for kids with some good views. If you're spry then go off trail and traverse the rocks for the great views.

A really low stress walk with beautiful views and some nice places to turn off to see the hot springs and the grove of the patriarchs. There's a good spot to stop and get a picture of Rainier on the drive as well!
