Madison Creek Falls

A short paved trail leads to these pretty little falls located within Olympic National Park in the famed Elwha Valley. Hikers of all ages and abilities can make this short walk to the mossy maple and cedar lined grotto that houses Madison Creek Falls. This path is also one of the few within the national park that is open to dogs (on leash).

Like most waterfalls, these too are best observed in late autumn and winter. But during the summer if there is a good flow, the splash pool at the base of these nearly 50-foot tall falls should help provide for some cool moist refreshing breezes.  After admiring the falls take a break at one of the nearby picnic tables and enjoy the view up the wide Elwha Valley and its flanks of imposing peaks
