Great Hike!! My friend and I did not make it to the main waterfall as we got lost down a trail we thought was the main one. Turned out to be a side trail that took us right to the creek. Ended up finding 3 waterfall pools that we swam in! (Very cold) brought my dog as well and turned out to be a great hike!

This isn’t a trail. Gated private land at hike start point, no discernible path at the other end either. Waste of a lot of driving time. Plus looking at the top of that mountain ridge this path is nothing less than hard. You’d need to take flank slopes for this to be feasible

starting from the road, the trail is easy to follow, until it disappears. by that point, the ridge line and summit is obvious. takes a bit of figuring out how to get from A to B, but manageable. the Ridgeline is good without having too much exposure (in low wind), and you can find a good scree line down for the descent. at the end of the scree, STAY LEFT to avoid a waterfall/cliff. you'll find a web of trails in the trees - one of which will take you back home. it's best to have some GPS or other tools to help navigate

Loved this trail easy for kids and such great scenery lots of shade and the water break is a nice cool down on a hot day took my 4 year old good trip would do again

June 10-2018. pass through the first gate and keep going about 100feet. You'll reach a "Y". keep right here and head up. or just followed this app. Very easy trail to follow up and one of few trails that you can warm your legs up before really having to hike uphill. Final few kms are tough.
It was super windy and tried to snow at the top(rain in the valley).
recommend heading up on a clear sky day to really enjoy the view to make it worth it.
Fresh bear skat halfway up but I didn't see anything.

An easy hike that offers a shallow river crossing, lots of water falls, great views and is dog friendly. Make sure you are paying attention to where the junction point is for Junction falls or you may find yourself at Junction Lake instead as it is the more obvious trail.

Great afternoon hike. The trail starts off easy for the first 3ish km’s but once you reach the bottom of the ridge it inclines quite aggressively for about 2 km’s. Although its tough the last 2km’s, once on the ridge the views are well worth it! Provides a nice 360 view of the area. We had the great opportunity to meet the man living at the firelook out. Very nice man! The descend is much easier and provides the opportunity to look at all the wildflowers growing along the trail! Based on the hikers we passed this is a good trail for anyone who wants to challenge themselves for some evelation and nice views!

Great Trail and even better views.

May 25th no snow on the trail just some on the ridge. if you don't want the mild scramble follow the trail on the right next to the creek. Walk around/under the butte by crossing the scree/dirt slope. Once crossed turn left and walk up the grassy slope. It's a short but pretty steep walk up. Enjoy lunch on the picnic table provided.

Took the direct “difficult” route. Was a cloudy day and the top was quite windy and chill, otherwise a fantastic trek, will be doing it again on a sunnier day!

Quiet, strenuous, beautiful!

One of my favorite hikes, it’s easy enough for the whole family! And still is such beautiful scenery throughout! The waterfall at the end is so pretty!

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.
