The first 1/2 of this hike is steep and very exposed, and thus was more difficult than I expected. Take water. That said, the scenery is absolutely fantastic. I loved the hike. It would have been 5 stars, but the trail ends a mile before the falls, which was a bit of a letdown. Looked like you could buschwhack it over to them without too much difficulty, but this was the last hike of a 2 week hiking trip and we just weren't up to it. The falls themselves are massive, as can be seen in the photos. But most of them don't do justice to the amphitheater shaped valley itself. It's really spectacular.

Hiked 1st week of June, 2017, and trail was almost entirely clear of snow, with some easily passable patches. Also ran into a grizzly right at the trailhead.

Beautiful hike! Some difficult portions though and the distances are misleading!

Excellent trail. A little busy but the views at the top are incredible. We went in the month of July and could hear small avalanches in the distance every now and then at the top.

Great Hike and camp adventure. Very steep grades on the way in but offset by awesome views as you reach the top. Lake is very nice but if you are camping as we did, get there early. There is lots of people showing up through out the day and the best spots are few.

Great hike, snow for the final 1.5km through the meadow. Lots of wildflowers already.

Go early! Gets busy in the afternoon.
