This hike is probably easier in the summer, the packed ice made it a bit slick in areas but worth the extra effort! I definitely want to come back and explore the trail further past Elowah Falls, I wasn't sure where it lead so I turned around. The view on the way to upper McCord creek falls was gorgeous and a added bonus!

Easy hike with plenty of eye candy. Only downside is the traffic noise for part of the climb.

Pretty short, easy hike leading to a spectacular amphitheater with Elowah Falls in the backdrop. It was breathtakingly beautiful!

The falls are beautiful. The hike is difficult for folks not in shape. I brought a friend with me and assumed the trails would be more flat but there is a lot of uphill climbing that again was challenging for someone not in shape. Also, the paths have a lot of rocks embedded in them, which makes for uneven grounds.
