Hiking Madison Falls

Enjoy this paved trail ending at beautiful Madison Falls.

The trail starts right after you enter Olympic National Park. Follow a trail that bends around the trees, and stop at the wooden rail to view the creek through the branches, then continue to the falls.

Benches sit at the very end, where hikers can take a break and watch the water tumble down.
