Fairy Falls is one of the tallest waterfalls in Washington, and is often stated as being the tallest at 700 ft., though in fact there are others that are taller (unofficially). Anyway, whatever its official status, we have a major gripe: you can only see Fairy Falls from a half-million miles away, by looking up the valley from the roadside. It plummets down the mountain as a large horsetail. We have heard that there used to be a trail leading to the falls, but it is no longer for some reason. We really really think it would be a good idea if the park built a trail leading to the waterfall. Why do not they?
