Very windy but beautiful hike

This trail is spectacular and is definitely worth the walk especially is it’s basically the only falls trail open right now. Definitely do it clockwise.

One of my favorite hikes. Great for beginner hikers or a quick daily walk in the woods. In the spring and summer I do this hike 3 to 4 times a week. Also going on a sunny morning it's a photographer's dream location.

This trail is popular, so I would recommend hiking on weekdays. It’s the perfect amount of challenging climbs with gradual trails, throughout many different types of geography. Totally worth it for the view—though the best views are just before the summit (I would say). Wear proper hiking footwear!

My first day of training for the Mount Marathon race in Seward AK! I am using Dog Mtn as my training mountain since its the only thing that comes remotely close to the race- which is 3022 feel climb in 1.22 miles- YIKES! Got to the top and down in 1 hr 35 minutes! Its always so awesome seeing so many people getting up this mountain! Gorgeous views and snow at the top!

Great hike! Don't bring your dog unless they're in good shape, ours barely made it down! Apparently we net to get her on a treadmill lol. Fantastic views at the top, definitely a challenge with a ton of steep inclines, the lookout point halfway up was a lifesaver

Hiked this trail a number of times, and it is one that is relatively easy at most points but has a few rough spots if you're not careful. Great view of the Gorge.

Some sick views! Super hard trail to get up and really killed the knees goin down. I had lunch at the top and loved seeing all the dogs people brought

Amazing views. I enjoy the 'difficult' trail more than 'more difficult'. There is still snow at the top so wear good shoes and be prepared. Love this one!

Beautiful but very popular expect to share the beautiful views. Trail is in good condition but still has areas that are muddy!

Forever a favorite hike of mine. I love the intensity and the peacefulness at the summit. I seem to always do this hike when I need a reminder to be grateful for the little things. Gorgeous weather today and so many friendly faces!

Great hike for young kids. My 4 year old handled it like a champ. A lot of traffic on a sunny day with the other gorge hikes still closed but worth it!!!

Beautiful hike! Wear appropriate shoes-it was pretty muddy.

You can literally drive up too or walk up too this waterfall it's so pretty!

Fantastic hike, gorgeous in every way, waterfalls, lush greenery, flowers, mushrooms, moss, all that's missing are the little fairies :) Took us about 5-6 hrs, just what we needed.

Did this one first day of March! Wildflowers are in early bloom. Spring is on its way! Trail is easy to follow. Great views! Would love to snowshoe in winter. Wouldn't recommend in summer for hot temperatures and rattles. Great for all ages! Would do again.

Amazing beginner hike. Definitely will be back

We did this trail today. Marc and I enjoyed it so much. At the lower part of this trail it was a bit crowdy with lots of mountainbikers hower it went really quiet at the upper part.
I will recommend this trail because its a really beautiful one. Spectaculair views, beautiful small streams, popping out flowers and we spotted several eagles.
It really kicks your butt!

Had so much fun! A few areas were a little not kid friendly with a 2 and 4 year old but we just carried them. His is an amazing hike!

Went and hiked this on our way back from Seattle WA to CA, it was great the trail takes you to the top of the waterfall then down to the base of the waterfall

Fun hike, not to many people were actually taking the whole loop due to slush, so the trail was pretty empty. Nice trails, great for dogs and the falls are beautiful! Moments of silence were not taken for granted.

This is such a fun hike. The falls are so breath taking!! And you can get right underneath them :-) Easy, kid and dog friendly as well. We will be back!

Beautiful waterfalls! Very slippery because of melted snow / slush! Coming back in the summer!

A real butt kicker on the way up! So so Beautiful and a perfect winter hike as there is no shade. We hit snow up top but nothing crazy! Highly recommend!

Super fun hike with beautiful falls - in dry weather you could wear tennis shoes. I did not go in dry weather... it is VERY slick and muddy- several people fell multiple times. Wear shoes with good traction!

the views were good the hike was okay.

Miss this place

Nice hike. Cold and sunny. A bit icy near upper falls.

8 miles was totally worth the scene! first 2ish miles is on a flat gravel road. then 1.7 miles once you hit the trail.
