Fallsview Canyon (Falls View) — Thursday, Jan. 1, 2015

Olympic Peninsula
The great river view at the bottom of the canyon switchbacks
Delightful way to start the new year (Happy New Year!) My short 4 min video link below will give you highlights of the entire trail. Park at the closed gate for the campground - walk past gate turning left at junction sign inside campground. Either way through the lefthand campground loop road gets you to well signed trailhead. One short trail to overlook and the other right next to it takes you down and along the Big Quilcene River. Had the trail to myself. 3 fallen trees, easily bypassed, so I got photos to send Charlie in case she wants those of us on her WTA trail crew to tackle it this spring. The waterfall and rapids are in good form with recent rains. No snow on trail - just enough in places to decorate ferns and mosses in shady spots. Would be great for families.
