There are parts of the trail which involve stairs, bridges and boardwalk sections. Along the hiking trail are resting benches for the steep sections. Beware that the mist from the falls can sometimes make the trail slippery.

Much of the route explores through first and second growth forests including Douglas Fir, Cedar, Hemlock, Arbutus and Canadian Maple trees. The forest floor is littered with fallen timbers, ferns and branches covered with moss and lichens.
