Adams Falls

3.50 out of 5
View Topo Map


Located at the East Inlet Trailhead. The trail is only 0.3 miles one way to the falls. There are quite a few steps throughout the trail but I would consider it pretty easy overall. After a short while you will get to a lookout point just above Adams Falls. The sound of the roaring waterfall contrasts the silence of the area. If you walk a little further past the falls you will come to a big grassy area where moose and elk like to hang out.

    This is a nice short and easy hike to a waterfall that cuts it's way down the mountain toward the lake. These kinds of places are ideal for families and those that want to hike and see the sights without needing to take a backpack full of supplies.

    There were a lot of stairs on this trail. It was partially shaded by some trees. No mountain views. My favorite part of this hike was seeing a fox. It was a big one and really pretty. The waterfall was nice, too. You could also walk down next to the creek. However, nothing too exciting.
