Falls View Falls viewing area at day use area.

This second-growth forest canyon trail leads to Big Quilcene River among spring blooming rhododendrons, lilies, and honeysuckle. 

The short Fallsview Loop Trail is adjacent to Fallsview Canyon Trail and leads to a view of the cascading waterfall into the Big Quilcene River. A small picnic area with four sites is near the waterfall overlook. Continue on the Fallsview Canyon Trail into the lush canyon alongside the rushing Big Quilcene River. You will loop back around to make your return to the trailhead. This trail makes a nice walk from the Falls View Campground or a rejuvinating break from the road.
