Super easy, wide, manicured trail. Great falls and pools but the ease of the trail makes it super busy. Food truck was in the parking area when we left near lunch time.

Great trail, stunning views, amazing waterfall - couldn't ask for more! Try going earlier in the day on off season or shoulder season to avoid higher traffic times.

Mostly a flat path, really easy. Once you get out to the glacial area it's beautiful. Past the path, be careful and stay close to designated markers. Don't try to get close to the glacier - stay safe and admire from a distance. Great walk for kids and inexperienced hikers.

Nice (but very short) walk, with some gorgeous lichen and wildflowers. A great place to stop for lunch if you’re doing a day of hiking

Lots of indicators to tell where to go. Many people on the trail so easy to follow footprints. Snow on the ground and can be slippery sometimes!

For an experienced hiker this is a piece of cake. The trail is more like a groomed walking path and the uphill battle is mild to moderate. It’s a quick hike all together and I felt silly bringing a back pack because of how well groomed and populated the trail was. Best waterfall I’ve seen though

Very beautiful, very crowded!

Definitely more easy than moderate but still stunning and absolutely worth pulling over. There are three parking lots on the left side of the road (if you’re doing the ring road counter clockwise) before the large touristy lot. These three were totally empty for us, we parked and walked up to the far west section of the “path” (it was totally snowed over so we walked where we wanted to) and had the entire glacier lake to ourselves. Stunning.

Really gorgeous, turn right from the parking lot instead of left over the glacier to go down to the lake and climb on the ice that’s washed ashore.

Great hike. Definitely recommend for experience takers. Quite icy and steep at times. Please be careful. Enjoy!

Glacier ridges at their best, plus a beautiful basalt waterfalls

this is an easy trail, not moderate, and the trail map is in direct conflict with markings and signage; we chose to go clockwise round the route, however we had to turn back as the allmaps trail required us to hope over a guide rope. I understand that the mosses are ecologically sensitive and did not want to go off the marked path and cause damage.

Very steep uphill to the waterfall for about 2km so be prepared for that.

wow! view, glaciers, etc

Go later in the day or early in the morning for more a secluded experience.

Beautiful!!! In case of bad wether, you might want to consider skipping the peak, as it is very slippery, rocky, windy.

Excelent trail!

Easy trail, nice break from the crowded section of the trail around the wf.

The end of the hike is the best part, the rest is mediocre views with flat terrain. Good for inexperienced hikers

The sjona-sker section of the trail is much more desolate and less crowded. The views are fantastic

I was very lucky, it was a beautiful day, the sky was clear and the wind was still. Then it's an amazing view especially at the peak.

Pretty but too many people, no peace!
