Great hike, not challenging in regards to the terrain but the length does make it a challenge. Beautiful forest walks, boardwalks and a stunning waterfall makes this a fabulous hike destination.
We walked the road back instead of the Baden Powell, which seemed to be easier for the route back.

Great hike! Beautiful waterfall at the end

Nice moderate trail, I wouldn't categorize it as hard. Amazing views at the end. In the summer it's a great 3 hour return hike, in the winter it's an even easier 3 hour return snowshoe trail.
Highly recommended.. here is a video of our snowshoeing trip earlier this year: https://youtu.be/7FVLNTGHriw

Did hike today.. nice beautiful hike... fantastic view..

Disappointed overall. It’s all hype and a $96 entry fee for 2 adults, overcrowded as heck, and not too many good views due to the insane amount of tourists. Might be worth doing once but I would skip if I were you.

Loved it! All trails tell you to park in residential area but there’s a nice picnic area parking closer to the trail head. Starts out quite easy for the first 4K then gets more difficult but still moderate. It’s about 7k each way to the falls but we recorded 17 after the extra walk to the car. If you want to swim in the falls there’s some tricky rock spots so just be careful overall wonderful hike with gorgeous changing scenery. Note ***Once you reach the small suspension bridge follow the stream up to the falls.

Wonderful area to hike! Some parts were steep, but it added to the adventure. Gorgeous trees and river.

definitely a longer hike about 13 miles roundtrip, the 2nd part is quite rocky with somewhat difficult sections. the views of the tree covered mountains and clouds resting on them is quite magnificent, and it's pretty much a rainforest throughout the hike. the waterfall was cool. dog friendly trail. overall was a great day, great workout! it took about 4-5 hrs.

Easy peasy walk or great beginner trail for those just getting in to trail running. Great variety of woodwork, wider gravel trails and narrower dirt/root/rock trails.

Doable for a beginner but you will be pushing your limits if you are out of shape. lots of great views on the way up and down and the view from pump peak is great.

a handle of sections with snow, maybe 50 meters all together.

It was easy to hike but the view is stunning ..There are lots of roots just be careful. Some trees have no orange sign and confusing.

Great trail. Very steep and relatively dry right now. My two complaints are the trail is not well marked and the bugs. Make sure to bring a compass with you as there are some parts where cell service is spotty. I didn’t bring bug spray or a net but if I had I’m sure it would have been better! Worth it regardless!

Did this hike with my son during early summer. Lots of blood thirsty black flies and mosquitoes. Be sure to have good hiking boots as trail is mostly tree roots, rocks, mud, uneven terrain and some snow. But, the reward is the view at the end. Did this in approximately 4 hours including rests and time spent at the viewpoint. If your planning to bring your pet, expect the feet of your dog to be muddy after this hike.
And, watch your every step as a twisted ankle will ruin your day.

Mostly dry by now, there is some construction between the trail head and the lake. Watch for your steps, as there are a lot of roots. Bugs can be annoying, bring some spray, The view at the end is spectacular. Great for kids.

A lot of elevation and scrambling after the junction with the lower Norvan Falls Trail, with incredible panoramic views at the summit. My recording was 25 km and 1339 m elevation gain. Plan for 10 hours if you want to enjoy the views and visit the lake. Bring more water and food than you think you need and while I normally don’t use them I found hiking poles useful for steep areas.

Good hike today. Not too many people on the trail. I would avoid it on the weekend.

Amazing trail for both snowshoeing & hiking! Great for solo hikers!

Loved it but was much farther than it says on here. We did have to park at the second parking lot which added a bit but it was 13.2 to get to the peak totalling close at 27km not the above quoted 18.9 - there were 6 of us that were all tracking.

beautiful view once you are on the top of the mountain, however this hike was a lot harder than we expected.
from beginning of the trail to the top is definitely longer than posted here. roughly 25km round trip including a small detour to the Norvan fall (very worth it!). Make sure you pack lots of water as it's a very long hike.

Good hike. Pretty easy. We took a detour which made it longer and a tad harder. The view is good from the top.

the hike was 30km out and back from the parking lot not the stated 19km. Very difficult. bring lots of water and Gatorade and fuel snacks. took 6 girls 10 hrs

very touristy but a beautiful trail nonetheless :)

View is spectacular! The trail is not so clean with wet mud and big roots but with the challenge comes the reward. I

Definitely get ready for an incredible hike. The mud made it so much fun. Watch the roots, but I would do this hike over and over. We took the dog and he loved it even on the leash. The shade, the views, the weather made this one of my favorite hikes. Not very busy on a Wednesday morning. Even the drive up was pretty.

Bring bug spray!!

amazing views

Will be great once the bridge is open again, but until then it’s not worth it - awkward, not well marked detour.

A very rewarding hike. The trail is still very muddy, with snow still covering a decent sized section of the trail. Wear appropriate footwear! The trail is quite rocky, and covered in roots, so watch your step! The view at the top is stunning, and defiantly worth the hike!

Fairly easy route for a trail run. The first bit is fairly flat and smooth, while the second part gets a bit more rugged. It's a great trail to run with your dog since there is water along the entire route so they can cool off easily along the way.

Great hike. Did it today. Not much to add only that when we got out of car at the parking lot, we were attacked by a tons of tiny flies. Thought they might be mosquitoes at first but fortunately not. Don’t let it deter you as once we passed the info shed to start the hike, they all dissipated..
