5.4 Miles Round Trip - Out-and-Back Trail

Carter Falls Trailhead - Search Nearby - Added by Tara Warolin

Distance: 5.4 miles round trip. Waterfalls. River. View of Mt. Rainier.

This hike starts off with a bang! The first thing you do is walk out into a rocky riverbed and get an amazing view of Mt. Rainier. From there, you'll cross a long log bridge to get over the river and head into the woods.

After 1.1 miles, you'll come across Carter Falls, and about 100 feet down the trail, you'll see a smaller falls above Carter. From here, it's another 1.6 miles to Narada Falls.

The photos don't do it justice; come see the falls for yourself!

Carter and Narada Falls

I think one of the falls you can actually drive to. Not the best waterfalls I've ever seen.

Love hiking around and exploring along the Wonderland Trail. Narada Falls also has it's own parking area. The adventure can also be extended to include Reflection Lakes (1.5 miles beyond Narada Falls) which offers a 5.0 mile loop option to the lakes and back to the viewpoint.
