Christine Falls

One of the most photographed areas of the park is Christine Falls, which spills in two portions — one of which is under the historic bridge carrying the Road to Paradise.

From the parking lot just off the road — and be careful because parking spots are limited and traffic tends to slow down with people wanting to find a place to park — make your way just a few hundred feet down the path to the viewing area. Be advised that this area is very popular, especially in the summer, so be patient and courteous.

The falls makes one of the most beautiful and recognizable sights in the park, framed by rock and trees — and evoking the ultimate picture of beauty in the Pacific Northwest.
