Description

A quiet walk through an old-growth forest to the base of a gushing waterfall surrounded by wildflowers. The path is dirt and doesn't have much elevation gain.

Snowmelt, not Crater Lake, is the source of Plaikni Falls' water.

Short Hike: One mile, wheelchair/handicap accessible (~2 miles round trip).

Family Friendly: Easy, short trail to a powerful waterfall; kids will love it.

Gem Type: Waterfall
