We took the red bus up to the falls. It was an easy walk up to the falls. There is a lower view and an upper view. The lower view is easier on the knees and you get a great view of the 312’ Falls....More

This place is a Chelan area must. Such a beautiful place up here. So many places to go up here that you just feel absolutely lost in Paradise. I hope someday whoever is reading this checks it out if they haven't already.

Rode our bikes there. Worth the work. We also hiked the Rainbow Falls trail but you can’t see it from the trail.

We rode the big red bus up to the Falls, it was eye opening to see the places the full time residents lived in! The Falls were quite lovely and, of course, the sounds and smells only added to the experience. 2 thumbs up!

We heard that in June, the falls are at its best. The Red Bus takes passengers from the dock to the falls for $10 each. The tour is 50 min. total, but we stopped at the falls for only 15 mins. There are two views...More
