Route Description for Hemlock Falls Trail

For such a short route, the Hemlock Falls Trail sure is packed full of beautiful scenery! For anyone wanting to experience the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest and its stunning waterfalls, then this is the route for you.

Setting out from the trailhead at the Lake in the Woods Campground, you will make your way to the southwest, keeping right at a fork in the trail to continue through the tree cover to the banks to Hemlock Creek. Along the way you will have some amazing views of moss-covered rock formations, towering trees, and the lush floor of the temperate rainforest.

Eventually, you will arrive at the impressive site of Hemlock Falls with its gushing waters that plunge 80ft into a pool below. Take some time to explore the area, before heading back along the same trail to return to the campground.
