Good moderate hike, we started early and no one was on the trail. As we descended from the lakes the trail became a bit more busy. Round trip 4 1/2 hrs.

Really nice solid hike for a higher end beginner. 5 to 6 hrs full turn and with 1 hr lunch at the top. Take time at the top to enjoy the views. Some big old growth trees in this area near the bottom 1/2 of the trail.

Good hike and bike combo. The views to the east are incredible as well to west to the Rockies.

Bring an extra pair of shoes to cross the creek right at the beginning!

Very easy hike with very minimal effort. A nice long walk through the woods and then at the end rewarded with beautiful falls. (keep in mind that there are two sets)
Very dog friendly as there is lots of places to stop for water and lots of shade!
I would love to do this one on a horse one day:)

Just did the more direct route to Sentinel Peak (right side of the route) by bike / hike. 3 hours u, 2 hours back. Definitely doing it again next year.

lovely short hike. beautiful scenery and came across a geocache.

Nice easy chill hike.

Just a dusting of snow on the trail today until you crest the ridge (wow, it was windy as promised!). Layer up before you head over the top. Took the "assault" route up, which was steep but definitely doable and more sheltered than a longer ridge walk. The trail got a bit muddier as the day went on, but nothing to worry about. Great views, but it was far too windy and cold to spend very long at the top. We were 3hrs door to door and about 2.5hrs "moving time".

Nice little workout, especially the last click to gain the ridge. A little snow on the top now. I'd be interested if anyone has descended on the South Ridge Trail to make a nice loop.

Nice easy hike to beautiful falls. Getting across the river at the beginning of the trail without getting wet is tricky - best to have an extra pair of shoes to cross the river with. Quiet trail as we did not see anyone else on the hike today.

Steady moderate hike all the way to the top! Not fully maintained so ensure your arms and legs are covered to reduce any stray branches from scratching. Small amounts of snow about a third of the way up. Amazing view!

one of our most favorite hikes. we have done this hike every summer with our kids. it is an easy hike and the waterfall at the end is simply beautiful. the kids love to play in the icy cold water

a bit steep, but nice views were worth it

The first 3k are a grind if you are not use to elevation gain. Good little day hike. I have done other hikes with much more rewarding views but the fishing at the lakes was worth it. Came out to 10.64k round trip to the first lake.

Beautiful hike.

We loved this hike! Gorgeous views. A little steep and rocky at the top. I would not rate this as a easy hike but totally worth the effort. Lots of anglers when we went.

Great for kids! Spent almost 2 hours playing around the waterfall. 5 kids (age 8, 6, 6, 4 and one year old in a backpack) and only took about 30-40 min one way. Looks like construction might have the trail starting at a different part because we didn't cross the road and little hill to climb at the start, but kids all managed just fine!

A lovely short walk to a small lake which is apparently stocked with arctic grayling. Suggest a floating belly boat to cast from the middle of the lake because it looks hard to do from shore. Although a short walk, the grade is quite steep which may make it difficult for younger and older hikers. A rocky and wooded shoreline awaits you for lunch.

Easy hike along Junction Creek to a lovely waterfall. Often used by horse riders and mountain bikers, but never really busy.

Nice moderate hike featuring mostly lateral traverses with only one steep uphill pitch. Very scenic and worth the effort.

Great challenge for beginners and fantastic for curious dogs if you know what I mean. Be sure to cross over to your the grassy side on your right once you pass the gate (thank you for the heads up reviewers). You'll spot the fire lookout from the forest, and the trail is pretty straightforward from there.

Windy at the top, expected but it also gets smokier as well with the wildfire smoke. Skies were still blue.

PS. We lost our friends driving to this location. Be sure it's Range Road 52A in LONGVIEW and not in Bragg Creek.

Not easy but a great moderate hike. Beautiful!

Great hike for kids! Short, has interesting signs about the forest and history of the area along the way. Two small bridges with the falls at the end where your kids can splash and play. Great hike to bring swim clothes and an extra pair of dry after you're all done.

If you're feeling a bit more adventurous, just before you go over the two bridges, there's a small fire pit camp area to the left. There's a trail on the back end that if you follow it up the hill and then down the other side, you're able to follow the creek and enjoy several different waterfalls. Very enjoyable.

Four beautiful lakes and good fishing. We had a great time relaxing at the lakes.

The trail itself is definitely more of a moderate hike than easy. It's steep and steady climbing as you get closer to the lakes.

I think that the reward at the end of the hike is well worth the effort.

I recommend bug spray. There are quite a few mosquitos and flys due to being near by water.

Overall, it was a really great hike.

Directions to parking and start of trail are good. The trail is well defined and easy to follow.

I'd disagree with the "easy" rating on this hike. The majority of it is uphill and there is a decent stretch of a steep slope that is challenging. Moderate would be more appropriate as it is often difficult but not dangerous.

There was a fair amount of smoke in the air today so the views were hazy and looked fake but still incredible.

Janet is right. Don't take the logging/gravel road! If you are walking beside water you are on the wrong trail. The hike to the ridge (once we found it using this handy app) leads to stellar views on top; about 2 km casual stroll through the woods and then about 3 km of some steep terrain. Once you reach the top it is an easy walk in a meadow. Suggest take walking poles for the descent as the trail can be slippery and is steep. Go on a day with no smoke for the best views. I have inserted photos into our track if you want to see the views.

This is not much of a hike but fishing was good. Went up with my wife and 3 kids aged 6, 4 and 2 months.

Beautiful hike. Is rated as easy although I would say moderate due to some quite steep spots and poles would definitely be an asset in those areas.
