What are some more hiking trails with waterfalls in Washington?

Little Mashel Falls is amazing: not only can you swim in the natural pool at the bottom of the cascades, but you can actually walk right behind this waterfall when the water flow is low (conveniently, that tends to be in the summer!). The trail to access Little Mashel even has another two falls on it, so you'll get three for the "price" of one.

What are some of the best parks in Washington?

In a state as beautiful as ours, it goes without saying that there are some pretty phenomenal state parks in Washington. We love Lime Kiln State Park. It's one of the best places in the state for orca watching. There is nothing like seeing these incredibly majestic animals in the wild.

Many waterfalls require an arduous hike to get to them, and it is true that we have some great waterfall hikes in the Evergreen State that do require a bit of a workout. After all, it takes effort to have great experiences! But that statement isn't always true: there are plenty of easy-access waterfalls in Washington that require very little (or even no) hiking.
