Lower to upper falls is way too busy to take good pictures, expect to bump into lots of people. The way to ink pot was steep but relatively easy. There's a creek/river by the ink pot if you wanna refill your water bottles.

Good walk for the kids and the grandparents. Super buggy but super pretty.

Very muddy near the top when I went today, it's like a giant mosquito breeding ground at the top, definitely bring bug spray. View was beautiful though, would definitely backpack here in the future.

Superbe promenade assez facile (je l'ai faite avec mes enfants de 4 et 6 ans). Les lacs sont somptueux

Sympa mais la majeure partie de la marche est dans la forêt, sans véritable point de vue sur les étangs

Très jolie balade avec mes enfants de 4 et 6 ans. Beau souvenir

I loved this hike - the views along the way are all stunning. I recommend going up the ridge as well - you will be blown away! Bug spray was great to have and hiking poles for the ridge portion were also a huge help. There was a grizzly reported at the top by some other hikers - so bring that bear spray! It took us about 7 hours with breaks and photo taking.

Lower Falls gets super busy, like too busy. Can barely move around at times. Super beautiful though. The ink pots is a bit of a trek but a bit less busy and worth it! Parking is also a huge issue but what's another 10 min walk down a road when your doing a 2.5 hour hike. Food at the cafe is super expensive but nice to have just in case. The ice cream is also not a bad idea after too!

We took the scree way up which most people take on the way down so it added an extra hour at least. Hike was amazing. Found some cool coral fossils. Full day hike and I'd rate it as difficult. 3,140 meters at the summit about 10,300 feet. If you want to feel above the rest of the ridges and hikes in the area this is a cool one to do! Leave your dog out of this one ! Cheers

This trail was amazing, full of beautiful sites! Went from one end to the other then back around again. The trail was a little tougher on our way back but all the sites were worth it! Loved it!

I was hiking this trail July 15, 2017. It was very challenging with steep climbing going up the trail. One we reached the top it offered specular views. Going down was difficult due to steepness and dry dirt on the trail. It took about 7 hrs to return to the bottom including a few rests and lunch at the top.

July 22, 2017-the trail is narrow and runs along the mountain rounding down to the lake. There is a bridge to take you across the creek and the trails continues to climb up the mountain. We didn't go to the end of the trail and turned around at the half way point. We didn't see any people until heading down. Overall a nice quiet trail that is changeling due to the climb in elevation.

It's a very easy walk with beautiful view on the Lake

Very easy hiking. No real challenge. Nice to get a great walk in.
