Beautiful day hike! Not a super challenging trail and path levels out as it goes on. Ink Pots are beautifully blue!

Steady (and much steeper than Troll Falls) incline up; but with a few planned breaks, lots of water and a few snacks, my 5 and 7 year olds were able to make the trip! Logged a geocache at the lakes, saw some brown trout, climbed into a cave and explored some beautiful spongey moss trails. Definitely worth the trip up, even just for the amazing water colour!! Very busy trails... we had to park on the main road and hike down to the parking lot. Lots of people meant not much wildlife around. Make sure to look up at the rock face for climbers; seeing them do their thing in real life was pretty awesome for my littles!

Beautiful views, great girls day hike

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.

May long weekend. Was expecting a huge crowd based on the volume of vehicles in the parking lot and on both sides of highway but everyone was pretty spread out. This was our first time here and lots of people with strollers and bikes. Once we hit the first falls we crossed the water and started on the well marked orange flagged path. Lost track of how many more falls there were. They were all beautiful. It was challenging but exciting!

I would recommend waiting till the water in the creek goes down so it's easier to hike through.
The other option is to walk along the creek, on the cliff above it. But we found it was hard to follow a proper trail because of the flood damage.
We crossed through the mountain to connect onto Door Jamb to find a clearer path.

We would go back and see this trail at another time.
But right now, I wouldn't recommend it.

Nice walk in the park. HEAVILY trafficked (people and dogs). Lots of families, definitely an easy hike that could be done with kids. Waterfall isn't really anything spectacular but the stream running through the trail is pretty. If you want a nice view, cross the river at the end of the trail and continue on up the side of the mountain (trail is clearly visible to the left of the 'waterfall'). Hang a right at the top and you will have a gorgeous view of the river valley below. Note: trail up the mountain is a bit of a scramble. Wouldn't do this one again but it's a nice stop off the highway or you're looking for a quick little hike!!

Very easy hike! But great views and only really takes about 3-4 hours round trip

still quite a bit of snow (may 21) so highly recommend proper hiking boots but crampons aren't necessary

Great hike! A little tough on the top half because of all the snow and mud, make sure to wear the right shoes and bring poles right now! The views are worth it!

Great trail; still very snow packed (on May 21). The lake is still frozen over too. Beautiful nonetheless!

Fantastic hike! Challenging thru the snow/slush right now on the last 1/4 of the trail. Will be back to do it again in the summer when all the snow is gone!
