    Great falls. Can be hot and dusty. Steep if you press on to Upper Chush Falls.

    Upper Chush Falls was shockingly high. Cascade Falls was cool and Lower Chush falls was larger than expected and amazing.

    We tried this hike back in May and couldn’t make it to the falls due to the deep snow. Today was much easier with clear trails. It’s a slight incline to the first falls, but you then need to descend a fairly steep slope to reach the base of the falls, which is where you get the best view. There is another set of smaller falls a short distance further, and the much taller Upper Chush Falls is about 0.6 miles beyond the first falls. The last part of that trail gets pretty steep but the view is well with it. Total round trip was 5.8 miles and took us 3 hours including a lunch break. Lots of good scenery along the way, including mountain views, the meandering Whychus Creek, small streams to cross, and a crystal clear pond with bright green algae on the bottom. It was also good timing for several different wildflower varieties.
