Great snow hike! Be prepared with snow shoes or Yaktraks. About a foot of new snow, trail is not packed down. Its 2.7 miles from where the road is closed to the trail head. 7.4 miles round trip. Falls were spectacular!
Go early! We arrived at 730 am, were back to car at 1100 am.

Everyone does this hike these days! I remember a few years ago I could go and maybe 10 people would be there now at least 50 or more. It's a nice hike and the waterfall sure is a nice one. Great for people are just getting into hiking.

Great first of the year hike. I would highly recommend getting there early if you are going on the weekend. It's about a 2.25 mile walk to the trail head due to the road closure. I used microspikes which made the hike so much easier. The falls were beautiful!

such a beautiful hike. definitely recommend some kind of spikes in the winter thought but definitely worth all the slipping and sliding . very crowded trail and with a lot of dogs .

Nice hike. I've only done it in the winter/snow. Seeing the falls almost totally frozen is something to see. Super fun, relatively easy hike. A hiking pole and good boots or spikes for winter will help as some spots getting down can be rather icy.

People was sledding down the hill at the falls because there was enough snow covered. However, we witnessed a freak accident when a guy ran over a group of people with his sled so be on the lookout. It's a beautiful scene but very slippery so shoe spikes are a must.
