Cypress Falls Rating

The idyllic Cypress Falls trail has two nice waterfalls to see as well as an impressive forest of old growth Cedars and Douglas Firs.  From the trailhead to the lower falls is easy to follow.  There are quite a few smaller trails that join the main trail leading to various connecting routes to the main trail.  Always stay on the main trail to avoid getting lost.

When you reach the lower falls the main trail splits in two.  You can either back up and continue again on the main trail heading up the west side of the creek and leading to the upper Cypress Falls.

You can also cross the creek and follow the trail to an amazing, old growth forest.  Continuing through the forest will lead to a gate and fence.  Turn left here and you will connect back on the trail to the upper Cypress Falls.

The roundtrip hike to both the lower and upper falls is about 3k and is very family friendly taking about an hour to complete.  Another beautiful trail close by and also fairly easy and family friendly is the wonderful Lighthouse Park, just a short drive away.
