The Narada Falls Bridge is a reinforced concrete arch bridge in Mount Rainier National Park, spanning the Paradise River above Narada Falls. The bridge was built in 1927-1928 by contractor J.D. Tobin of Portland, Oregon, who built the Christine Falls Bridge at the same time. The arch spans 36ft. The bridge is 20ft wide, with an additional 3.5ft on either side for sidewalks. It was faced with rubble stonework and is an example of National Park Service Rustic design. The bridge is not open for public traffic, leading to the Narada park utility areaThe bridge was placed on the National Register of Historic Places on March 13, 1991. It is part of the Mount Rainier National Historic Landmark District, which encompasses the entire park and which recognizes the park's inventory of Park Service-designed rustic architecture.

  • The Falls are amazing many great views. The whole time in Mount Rainier National Park was a great time! 
  • Beautiful falls just off the beaten path. Nice stroll from the top will take you to the lower portion and a better view. 
  • Waterfall is next to parking lot. You can view from parking lot, but to get a good view took a hike om a very steep trail about 300 feet each way, but be careful very slick. The last time we were here...  read more »
  • Beautiful view and falls, close to Paradise. We actually stopped here because Paradise was much too crowded. It's a small lot, but we found parking and it was a pretty short walk down to the falls viewpoint. The trail is a little knotty and steep in areas, so those with mobility difficulty might have issues but we were able to get down without a problem. A great quick stop if you are in the Paradise area.
  • Really neat and big waterfall. Easy short walk from the parking lot to the bridge and the wall next to the parking lot to see the falls. There is a short, steep, dirt set of steps that lead to the lower viewing area. Highly recommend the walk down as the views there are the best.
  • Watch for traffic as you approach the bridge! People will stop and watch the waterfall before they realize there is a parking space. Also, parking will fill up, so you will see pedestrians approaching from both sides and crossing the windy road.
  • Beautiful. Easy hike to bridge to get a nice view of waterfalls. Hike up is easy to moderate for most.
  • A stunning waterfall in mid spring when the flow is high. Take a quick hike down below, just across the bridge for a better view.
