    Route Description for Narada Falls Trail

    The Narada Falls Trail is a simple, family-friendly route to a lovely waterfall in Mount Rainier National Park. The trail is short and sweet, so if you’re interested in further exploring the network of trails in the area, grab a map from the Paradise Visitor Center.

    The hike begins from the Paradise parking lot. Head behind the inn and cross Valley Road to pick up the trail on the other side. You’ll follow Lower Lakes Trail, keeping right onto Narada Falls Trail as Lower Lakes branches off to the left.

    Ruby Falls comes up just before the crossing on Stevens Canyon Road. Cross the road and pick up the trail on the other side, walking alongside the Paradise River to the viewpoint, which is just past the falls.

    Once you’ve enjoyed the falls, you can either head back the same way you came or continue a bit further on the Wonderland Trail, on which you can make a nice loop around Inspiration Point.
