I've only seen a few waterfalls in Washington, but I am truly intrigued by Waptus Falls.
According to Alltrails.com, it's a 17.4-mile out and back trail near Ronald, WA.
Generally considered a challenging route, it takes an average of 7 h 31 min to complete. This is a popular trail for backpacking, camping, and hiking, but you can still enjoy some solitude during quieter times of day. The best times to visit this trail are April through October. Dogs are welcome, but must be on a leash.
