    Directions to Trailhead

    The Falls View Canyon Trail is a short trail in Olympic National Park near Highway 101. This hike follows the Big Quilcene River to a short flowing waterfall. It may seem very easy in terms of distance and elevation gain, but there are steep sections with poor, eroded footing. We don’t recommend this trail for extremely young children or those who feel they might struggle with these challenges.

    Route Description for Falls View Canyon Trail

    The Falls View Canyon Trail is a pretty hike close to the highway. This trail is easy for some but a bit challenging for younger and newer hikers in general due to steep sections with eroded, rooty trail. Poles might be helpful for this one. Avoid this trail in wet weather as the footing can become very slippery.

    Begin from the campground, making your way south and then west towards the bathrooms where the trail curves down to the river. Cross the water and follow the river to the falls viewpoint, enjoying the bright blue water and the gentle babbling of the falls.

    When you’re ready, take the opposite side of the loop back up to the trailhead.
