    The Explorer Falls hike is a 8.5 km moderate hike near Sultan, Washington. This trail takes you to a waterfall with a neat cave to explore. It’s not too challenging and it’s very easy to follow, thanks to a wide old logging road serving as the route. Try to visit after it’s rained recently for the best view of the falls.

    Route Description for Explorer Falls Hike

    Explorer Falls is a pretty waterfall that can be accessed relatively easily, heading out on a very clear logging road with no technical challenges. You can use an access trail to get down near the base of the falls or admire them from above. Active kids will love this hike.

    Begin from the trailhead, hiking up the wide, even road. It gently curves, gaining gradual elevation. Pass an unnamed pond before the trail forks. Go right, then go left at the next split. At the 4-way junction, make a sharp right to cross back over the creek onto Monroe Camp Road. Follow this to the falls. When you’re ready, retrace your steps back to the trailhead.
