Take a hike to the forest and find a fantastic waterfall next to a small cave.

If you have been trying to get behind a waterfall Eatonville Falls is the place to hike and get a great feeling out of it. Hiking to the waterfall would lead you to a railroad and pass it would lead to a river where you would follow it down to get to the waterfall. The hike itself is pretty simple not a hard hike to do.

During the hike you can get a view from the top of the waterfall and also a very close view once you get down to the waterfall. The best part about the hike is getting behind the waterfall and touching the water with your hands, it's an amazing feeling and beautiful view.

At the end of the hike you want to make sure you have gone inside the little cave and take some great photos. Make sure to bring extra clothes incase you are trying to get wet. Have a good time hiking a fairly easy hike with a great waterfall at the end to make your day twice as better.

Hike to Little Mashel Falls Reviews

3 waterfall areas on 1 trail - that’s a big bank for your buck. Overall, it’s a worthy day trip and an easy alternative if you want to avoid the big crowds near Rainier. Easy to recommend.

The hike itself is super simple. When you get to the falls there is opportunity for climbing the rocks and going beyond the falls. Super fun

Long hike with 2 kids ( 9 year old and 2 year old) I ended up carrying my son 3/4 of the way ( definitely would suggest for older kids or kids with experience hiking not exactly for a 2 year old or at least mine) was 100 degrees partially shaded but beautiful waterfalls
