Nice trail, the first section is pretty open and follows a path through young forest. It's great on a sunny day. Once you get into the rocky area near the glacier you're completely surrounded on all sides by mountains. When we went the sun was melting some of the ice on the rock walls making them crash down. It made for a neat show.

This was a great hike for everyone in the family. The hike starts with any easy climb thanks to long switchbacks through the trees. After reaching the little bridge the water runs parallel to the trail for most of the hike. Once we got to the rocky part of the hike we explored a cave and two waterfalls.

This hike has everything - if you are up for a full day of walking on rocks (mostly scramble and scree). It's not that hard though, there is a direct path that circles the trail that passes the first water fall you reach. Then you scramble to the glacier.
There are a few waters falls to see, caves to your right after the first waterfall, a mossy stream with trees at another waterfall, and you can walk up to the glacier itself. The glacier is breathtaking.

This hike had everything you could want to see in the mountains. Well worth it.

An easy, short and rewarding hike to the very pretty Paint Pots. The views are great and the pots themselves interesting. There are signs along the trails to tell you about the history of the area.

Visited first week in July, 2017. Wonderful, easy hike on paved walkways providing gorgeous views of rushing water and waterfalls! Definitely a must if you're anywhere close to the area!

Absolutely beautiful views the whole hike through! The trail up was a comfortable climb and a pretty quick descent.

A great trail for my two siblings and my parents in their late 50s. Be advised on a sunny day you're very exposed. Parking wasn't an issue on a late August Wednesday around 10 am. Be sure to scramble to the base of the towering waterfalls. You won't regret it!
