Hike Less Than Half A Mile To This Spectacular Waterfall In Washington

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.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

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?
