Join us for an evening trip to the waterfall and a casual gathering at the picnic tables. Bring your own picnic. The Elwha River valley is breathtaking in the evening! I have coordinated with Olympic National Park to open the gate that blocks the closed road, so we can all enjoy a trip along the Elwha!
Where: Madison Falls, Olympic National Park, Port Angeles
When: Sunday, August 4, 2019 6:00 pm
Trail Description: 0.1 mile paved trail leads to a beautiful waterfall. The trail is wheelchair accessible and has a very slight incline (less than ramp-grade) with a couple of benches along the way. The closed road is paved and mostly level – there is a very slight hill about .25 mile down.
Pets: Service animals always welcome. The waterfall trail does not allow pets, however they are allowed at the picnic tables and along the road.
Cost: Donation of $1-10 suggested.
Parking: There is room for approximately 20 cars at the parking areas, and it is a popular destination. Carpooling is highly recommended. You may use the Facebook Event page to coordinate car pools, or let me know in the comments of your RSVP if you need a ride.

We welcome anyone who needs a group of supportive, slow moving hikers. We also welcome those who are new to hiking and supportive friends and family.
Disabled Hikers is an inclusive group. All of our hikes begin with a moment to honor the ancestral people of the land and their living descendants, and introductions. You will also be welcomed to share a bit about why you are here. There is never any pressure to share anything, and if you want to be anonymous that is okay too.
Other things to keep in mind:
- Please read the hike description. Trails are chosen to be as enjoyable as possible for the most folks, but only you can decide if a hike is appropriate for you.
- Please do not offer anyone advice or assistance without asking first.
- If you have questions at any time, please ask. We’re here for you!
Want to help make hikes happen? I spend at least 20 hours organizing each group hike. You can support the work of Disabled Hikers with contributions via PayPal (one time donation) or Patreon (recurring monthly donation).
