With bigger-than-life Mount Rainier as its backdrop, watch Myrtle Falls as it descends along Edith Creek. It’s a classic view – and one of the signature views in Mount Rainier National Park.

The falls skip along the rocks, descending 60 to 80 feet through the impressive gorge carved out by Edith Creek. It’s a family-friendly walk (less than a mile) along a paved nature trail to Edith Creek from the Henry M. Jackson Memorial Visitor Center at Paradise. For the best view of the falls, take a short jaunt down an unpaved trail, looking back up at the mountain and bridge crossing Edith Creek.
