Really nice! The ascent up the east side is challenging without being a slog. The south view from the lookout is incredible. The north view from the firewatch is absolutely worth the extra 45-60 minutes RT.

The western descent, down Jewell Pass is a nice, gradual winding trail across a creek. There's a waterfall, but it was frozen when I went in mid-May.

The toughest bit is the walk back along the lakeshore. It's attractive enough, but cold and windy.

This was a fairly easy hike, which is why I categorized it as walking. A really great option for kids, or if you're just getting your dog started out on hikes. Beautifully scenery. A LOT of spider webs. But beautiful and quiet.

Nice and easy walk.
Thanks David and Julie for showing us this one

Great family trail.
Grassi Lake's colours are awsome, try to get there as early as you can to avoid the crowd and enjoy this spot just for you.

What i like about this trail is that there are 3 major places you can stop and look at the view, there's a small scramble route that's pretty fun. lots of traffic, the only downside.

Nice hike, lots of shade on a hot day. Took about 2 hrs with small kids.

I did this one twice and the winter and would definitely attempt it in the summer as well! Can be done with running shoes but I would recommend hiking boots for the first quarter of the canyon loop itself. The first few kilometres is along the river on a wide open pathway. Further up the trail narrows and if you go left across the bridge you are faced with a steep incline- none the less I would definitely recommend going left at the trail head as the reverse is a longer ascent. The canyon trails weren't as well worn during the winter months but it was still easy to navigate. We didn't see any sort of critters or cougars along either trek!
