It was amazing! Very icy, some trees down at one spot, and at one point there was a fallen banister but it is a BEAUTIFUL hike. It can be as long or as short as you want, but make sure you stop by the scenic viewpoint to see the falls. Absolutely gorgeous.
Took the old trail up on New Years Day. About 8 inches of fresh snow at ground level. About 2 ft of fresh accumulation at the top. Freezing level at 300 ft. Used crampons and poles. Seemed like it would be incredibly difficult to not have some sort of winter hiking gear. Took the old trail down as well. Shorter, but pretty hard on the knees. Would recommend the new trail down. No one had taken it yet, though, so no obvious path... and it's pretty easy to lose the trails. Very challenging and definitely worth it!

Be prepared for snow/ice terrain, beautiful once you get to the waterfall well worth it!
12/29/16 Loved this trail. It's pretty steep and very icy if you don't have spikes. We didn't and we made it to the top but couldn't do the haystack. Going down was significantly more challenging than going up with the ice. The view at the top is so worth it. There are lots of dogs, including mine, off leash. 8/9 dogs we ran into were, so I wouldn't recommend bringing a dog who is reactive to other dogs. It's pretty crowded even for a Thursday morning, but it's a long enough trail that you don't feel crowded the whole time.
I hiked this last weekend on Christmas Day and it was awesome! Perfect weather and lots of grey jays at the summit. I used yak trax for traction and they worked great. The snow is very compacted and it gets really steep toward the end. Took about 4 hours round trip. It's a difficult hike, but honestly I expected it to be harder. Love this trail!
