Cool views and lots of little bridges criss-crossing over the canyon. Tracked out so easy to walk in the winter without snowshoes. Nice place to stop for a little stretch or Great gateway to more trails!

Absolutely amazing! It was a very tough trail and I would definitely recommend to do it in 5 days instead of 4 if you are unsure. Expect some rain. Some of the most beautiful views ever! Don't miss out on this trail!!

Fun, short trail. Late season- had light snow on the trail. Beautiful views.

It's only when you get to the lower lookout does the adventure begin. Take the trail right up the side of the valley wall to a waterfall and cave. Then continue up to the upper plateau for amazing views of the glacier and valley. Watch out for a fast running stream that can be difficult to traverse between the cave and the plateau. To get down, go to the opposite side of the plateau to try the north face back down. Be cautious of the scree and loose gravel in a steep decline back down to the lookout. The extra hiking to the plateau likely added 2 hrs but well worth it.

One of the best trails I have done! The end is gorgeous surrounded by peaks that look like they are gonna cave on you! Medium level hike with most of the elevation at the beginning.

One of the hardest trails that I did. Going uphill since the beginning, around 8-9 hours hike. Beautiful landscape, and worth the persistence to get to the top. Bring winter clothes as the summit can be windy and rainy dropping drastically the temperature.

Just a nice 2 1/2 hour out and back. Moderate and consistent effort on the way up. Interesting views but not breathtaking. A good solid hike though.
