I took my 13 year old daughter on this trail last August and we had an amazing time! Stunning views.

Cool views and lots of little bridges criss-crossing over the canyon. Tracked out so easy to walk in the winter without snowshoes. Nice place to stop for a little stretch or Great gateway to more trails!

Absolutely amazing! It was a very tough trail and I would definitely recommend to do it in 5 days instead of 4 if you are unsure. Expect some rain. Some of the most beautiful views ever! Don't miss out on this trail!!

Fun, short trail. Late season- had light snow on the trail. Beautiful views.

It's only when you get to the lower lookout does the adventure begin. Take the trail right up the side of the valley wall to a waterfall and cave. Then continue up to the upper plateau for amazing views of the glacier and valley. Watch out for a fast running stream that can be difficult to traverse between the cave and the plateau. To get down, go to the opposite side of the plateau to try the north face back down. Be cautious of the scree and loose gravel in a steep decline back down to the lookout. The extra hiking to the plateau likely added 2 hrs but well worth it.

One of the best trails I have done! The end is gorgeous surrounded by peaks that look like they are gonna cave on you! Medium level hike with most of the elevation at the beginning.
