Mima Falls


Day Hike - Mima Falls

A pleasant early season hike amide the Capitol Forest.

  • Easy
  • Easy
  • Mileage: 6.5 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 400 ft
  • Pace: slow to moderate pace (as fast as I can go)

We will meet at the Park N Ride behind the McDonalds joint at the southwest corner of Hwy I - 5 and Hwy 512 at 8:00 AM, and then carpool south on I5 to the Littlerock, WA, turnoff, then to the Capitol Forest and trailhead. Please arrive by this time.

This is a fairly straight and forward hike via established trails/roads to Mima Falls and return. We will likely try to make a loop hike out of this, so please bring maps of this area. I will likely bring my camera and will stop and take pictures of flora and/or fauna (if encountered!). For those who wish to drive to the trailhead, be sure to have a Washington State Discover Pass to avoid parking ticket.
