Hike to Moulton and Yacolt Falls

5 Miles Round Trip - 250 ft gain - Out-and-Back Trail

Hantwick Parking Area - Search Nearby - Added by Tim Ploeger

Easy, flat, family-friendly hike or run to a beautiful bridge, waterfall and river with rocks to sit and rest on.

The Hantwick trailhead is super easy to find and has a big parking lot which makes this hike really easy even in the middle of a sunny day.  As you round a bend coming up on the parking lot you will see a trailhead, but keep going about 100 feet and you will see the main parking lot with a separate trailhead that meets up to the same trail.

The trail is wide and flat and climbs ever so subtly for about 2.5 miles until you reach the iconic bridge from the photos.  Follow the trail down to the left and you can walk out onto the rocks in the river.  Continue a bit more to see Moulton Falls.

Additionally, if you follow the trail to the right after the bridge and head up towards the parking lot, you can see Yacolt Falls and connect with a handful of other trails that run along the river.

Overall rating: 

Easy trail

Trail was paved, which was nice for a little stroll. Lots of friendly dogs, more of a busier place. Seems like it’s a local favorite. Definitely an easy trail.


Very dog friendly, with a leash that is. Paved path and lots of spots to stop and swim ✨ Bring a camera!

Easy and peaceful!

Took my pup out for a nice 5 mile walk. Very easy walk, but also beautiful and serene. Great views!
