Beautiful! One of my favorite hikes. You can either stop once you get to the falls or keep going and climb up to the top to Avalanche Lake and beyond. I’ve done this hike 3 times now and I will still keep coming back!

We loved this one! The trail is hard to follow but there is so many outcroppings to explore and climb you dont really mind losing the trail. There were enough people coming back to point us in the right direction.

Beautiful hike! Very exposed and important to bring sunscreen. Lots of views of the lake. We went during the week in the afternoon and there was barely anyone else there. Took our dog down to the lake for a swim and didn’t see a soul! Water taxi no longer running for the season. But it’s a pretty easy hike with slow elevation gains.

Weekend was pretty crowded. first full parking at park parking . main street also full. Good for families and children . Ok.

The campground is only open in the summer. In the off-season there is a gate about five miles away from the trail that prevents you from driving to trail head.

this us one of my favorite places to go, especially if you climb to the top of the falls and hike back. it's like a little oasis. you never run out of exploring options.

Beautiful hike! Totally worth it, especially if you keep going above the falls to Avalanche Lake. The extended hike up to the lake is hard (climbing over boulders at a very steep incline). There are absolutely no trail markers which is why I gave it 4 vs 5 stars.

so fun!

Great trail. Some really steep, rocky parts so wear shoes with some good grip. Awesome views from the top. Good for dogs.

awesome hike!!

Son and I tackled what we have been driving by for 20 years. You know you’re at the top when you find the lake. Absolutely breathtaking!

Beautiful hike! The trail is hard to follow but follow the water and you’ll be fine!. We were worried it would be overly crowded but it was perfect. We brought our dog (border collie) and she loved it. There are some steep parts, so be sure to wear shoes with a good tread.

Definitely recommend this hike with breath taking nature

This trail is terrible marked but the views make it worth it. You see several waterfalls. After you get so far with the water on your right.... head left up the hill and go as far as you want. The Granite stone is gigantuous and can be overwhelming. But you will never see anything like it again.

Heads up. The lake is low so the water taxi will likely be closing before the usual date of Labor Day. Call the Echo Chalet ahead of time if the water taxi option is important to you

Love our community trail. We use it for our evening walks and when I was running we'd run the dirt and pavement trails.

Nice trail to take. You can walk/jog on the sidewalk path or on the many dirt trails. nice and peaceful.

Very nice but the trail can be hard to find at times. Definitely worth the trek in.

Terribly marked. Fairly easy. Pretty crowded on weekend. We arrived at lot around 945am and got one of last parking spots. Great views.

Trail poorly marked but as long as you keep river to the right of you as you ascend to waterfall you will be ok. Nice spots along the way to enjoy the river. The waterfall is beautiful!

This was a pretty trail and it gave me a nice workout. The whole loop took about an hour and a half, but we stopped at the lake for a bit. There is a lot of wildlife which I love! Saw a very friendly family of deer and lots of birds. Keep an eye out for rattlesnakes! I came dangerously close to one and didn't notice it until I heard it. There are mountain lions in the area so I recommend bringing a friend. Overall a great trail, just keep an eye out for dangerous animals.

Did this trail on 8/20/18 and it was fairly easy to hike and beautiful. There are several places safe enough and deep enough to swim in. Took my 4 year old daughter and she loved it.

There is no true end to this hike I decided to turn back around when I realized the trail got too steep and difficult to navigate with my 4 year old.

Parking gets pretty full after 9:30 AM so be early.

This is a must do hike when the waterfall is flowing strong! The trail can be pretty unmarked at times, but it was never difficult to find which way to go. Just keep the river on your right side going in. The trail has minimal shade, but is very scenic the entire length, with huge granite faces and cliff-sides. The waterfall is breathtaking and there are some great pools to swim in for those who are willing to brave the cold water. The hike was not difficult, but I can see it being a possible problem if bringing dogs, due to the rocks towards the end of the route.

Overall nice trail. Some great spots to go swim. Although it is more than moderately trafficked, on a Monday it was a busy trail. I can’t imagine the weekends.

Beautiful hike, not terribly well marked, but easy to find your way up to the falls if you’ve got a sense of adventure.

My lifesaver was a local who showed me around the non-paved path. The signing is really bad, but if you follow the river it will help. It is really beautiful though, lots of oak and wildlife, and the sound of the rushing river too. The paved path was a lot busier.

Absolutely amazing! Stunning views and plenty of places to stop and just relax next to the falls! I highly recommend it!
