Fagin's Hike of the Week- Boise Falls

Updated 11-16-2015

This is a short hike just east of Enumclaw off of Highway 410 and it is on an old trail that Weyerhaeuser apparently made many years ago. With all the rain we have had this waterfalls will be flowing very good now. Thanks to Dennis Long for the photos.
