The map indicates the wrong road approach to the trailhead. It involves a dangerous rail crossing and private property "no trespassing" signs. The correct approach to the trailhead is from the Everitt Highway. See guidebooks for the safe roads.

This is a great day hike. Went 11/11/18. There is a large tree blocking the road about 1/2 to 3/4 of a mile from the trailhead. Good fishing.

Enjoyed this short cute stroll. The fall was still flowing with water. You can go behind the waterfalls.

Stunning hike with incredible views of Shasta, Castle Crags, Castle Lake and Heart Lake. We clocked this hike at 3 miles round trip, rather than the listed 2. Trail is quite steep in places and elevation gain was closer to 850'. It's easy to lose the trail ~1 mile up; other hikers have tried to help by placing rock barriers in multiple places where the path appears to diverge as well as rock stacks to help guide you, but the path is still easily lost in places.
Lake was frozen solid 11/11/18

Not much hiking but plenty of relaxing. Good vibes (and not many people on a sunny November day). Will be back in the summer to swim.

Amazing hike super short but beautiful and historic!

We did Bunny Flat through panther meadow campground (on the hardball) up to Gray Butte. Had lunch on Gray Butte, awesome views up there! Very few people up that high this late in the season, so it was nice and secluded. Gray Butte and back was right at 7.2 miles.

Great views of the Mt. Easy going trail, mostly flat. Not sure where 6.5 miles came from, we showed 8.24 miles. The lake is really low this time of year.

Enjoyed this trail yesterday, 11/11/18. Completed lower to upper falls. Easy hike. Weather was chilly but no freezes or snow yet. Falls were still abundant.

Very brushy in some areas on the trail, but overall the trail was beautiful and the views are amazing!

I enjoyed so much the view of Mt. Shasta. I would have enjoyed more with less people walking their dogs. Besides Mt. Shasta view and the bridge, nothing the trail is not really impressive.

It might be a nicer trail if there was water in the cove and if the trail were maintained better. Still it was a nice stroll.

This was a little tricky to find, but we managed just fine. The ruins are cool, and the falls are great. The actual falls were beautiful and the hike itself was not too bad. I did have my 8 and 9 year old kids with me, and found the trail down to the falls a little narrow. I will be returning to scramble along the creek on the boulders some more; there are so many exploration opportunities.

A nice break from a drive along I5.

Easy and fun!

Beautiful morning hike on a fall day. Great for a dog easy for all.

Amazing bang for your buck! So beautiful! The trail is crazy hard to keep track of but just bring an adventurous attitude, stay to the right and south and use this app to stay on track., you'll find it! So worth it!

Nice trail, with a gradual incline to the lakes. Great views of the valley from a ridge. Beautiful Fall colors around the lake. Had the whole trail and the lakes to ourselves. What a peaceful place.

Beautiful fall colors, amazing views. Easy flat hike around 7 miles. But...we lost the trail several times, especially at the boat dock. We had to go into the camp ground and ask around. It took 4 people before we found anyone that knew where the trail was.
