Washington has plenty of waterfall hikes, and for that we are thankful. But some of them involve traipsing for miles through some rather tough terrain, which just isn’t possible when you have a family or are short on time.

Luckily, we also have a few waterfalls so close to civilization that no hiking is required at all. And if you happen to be visiting Mt. Rainier National Park this summer, you can check out the Myrtle Falls viewpoint in minutes. The entire trail is less than a mile long, meaning you can reach the falls in just 0.4 miles.

Myrtle Falls is gorgeous, but we realize it’s a bit of a stretch to call it a “hike.” Do you have a favorite waterfall hike in Washington?
