Hiked in on October 23. I would like to do this again in the summer. I guess I'm out of shape because this hike was not easy. It kicked my butt but it was well worth it. It took us three hours to get to the Upper Lake and about the same to get out. I agree with everyone about the horse poop and mud.

We went October 10, 2016. The trail was muddy and had some standing water until the last .25 miles. From there it was snow covered. We ascended to the mouth of the wind cave, which was a little difficult since it was snow and ice covered. We slipped a few times but since this was one of our favorite hikes, we wanted to get to the entrance. The waterfall was still present although the amount of water was reduced due to the time of the year. Getting down from the cave to the monument was hard due to the snow and ice.

We have hiked this trail from June to October. I think October is a little late if you want to do some cave exploring. Enjoy.

Great view! Really easy, good for a relaxed date.

This was a fun hike! The lakes are beautiful! A bit muddy in the fall and pretty busy in the afternoon. We saw 3 moose the day we went!

Too much snow to get all the way to the caves! But beautiful!

Beautiful the whole way.

Excelent fall hike. good weather and great fall colors.

Nicely signed trail that explains the geology of the area and why the creek is warm all year round. if you want to go for a longer hike you can cross the walking bridge below the parking lot and walk up the river on dirt road. This road intersects the gravel road after a mile or so which you can use to walk back to your car.

I really enjoyed this hike (maybe because I was hiking it with my oldest daughter). The trail is actually about 3.5 miles long if you hike around the crater which I highly recommend since there are informational signs along the way. The signs do a nice job explaining the volcano's eruption and subsequent weathering. The hike up is a bit strenuous but not too bad if you take your time. We hiked it mid morning so it was still fairly cool.

Great walk. Not really a hike, but I enjoyed being close enough to the falls to feel the mist. Excellent view!

Beautiful! The hike begins past the Continental Divide sign, just FYI. I only went to Aldous Lake. Only saw one other person.

Worth doing but maybe pick a week day instead of a weekend. It's no secret by any means and can get crowded. Especially with the horses and, as others have mentioned, the horse poo. :(

Our family camps at Warm River campground every year. Most beautiful place ever! I have never done the full loop but we mainly just start at the campground and hike (walk) to the railroad tunnel. If you start at the parking lot of the campground it's about 3 miles up and 3 miles down. Beautiful scenery and great easy hike for kids!

horse poop on the nature..but it's very pretty there.just the poop bugs me.

nice trail very pretty except horse poop.

sucks..horse poop in mother nature
