This is a beautiful but steep trail. Don't hike this trail if you are scared of a challenge! My friends and I decided to spend May long up at the lake and camp; when we arrived at the lake it was frozen and still had a fair amount of snow all around the lake. We decided to truck through the snow to the far end of the lake where we found the campsite. I had done this trail years before also and it snowed on us in the middle of July.... life in the mountains! Regardless of all the snow both times it was a beautiful hike and a peaceful place to camp.

Rating would have been higher if not for half the trail covered in snow and lake also covered (May long weekend). aside from that, amazing views from the south ridge.

Nice easy hike for the most part. Well travelled trail until after the first waterfall and then the traffic and trail thins out. Beautiful and serene!

Well maintained. Moderate traffic. Low elevation gain for the majority of the trail, with some pick up right before you get to the first falls. Gorgeous views of the falls with excellent viewing platforms. Family friendly hike, though you'll want to keep little ones close by as the drop would be fatal.

amazing beauty! every year I at least go 4 times!

love this hike. step and constant but beautiful

May 6 2017. Beautiful weather. Very hard but worth it. Would not recommend this for beginners due to the scree which you encounter about 1/2 way as well as the steep angle of the hike. I have knees that like to go one way - up - very hard on the knees coming down but just take your time. Definitely use poles. The wind at the top was very strong and cold due to our late spring - still snow on top. Wow - can't believe I did it! 3 1/2 hours to go up and 2 down.
