Great views! Very doable hike- plenty of switchbacks!

Steep first .4 miles. Fairly nice walk around the lake. Some snow on north facing trials. Overall a very pleasant hike.

There's a lot of snow still there and it gets slippery coming back down. But I personally didn't mind. It made more for the adventure!

Really quick hike. Starts through a neighborhood then works up to some stairs and a short climb. Right now you definitely need books if not spikes as there are some iced out steep runs. Good payoff for such a short, accessible spot.

Starts off going through a neighborhood. Went yesterday and it’s still covered in snow and slippery. The hike seemed very short though due to the rapid change of scenery. Kids lived it. Toddler did struggle with snow though.

It was a nice, relaxing hike with the family. Great views with a blue sky at the end!

Very steep. Went a few days ago and is currently covered in snow and some ice. This hike is basically you climbing the entire time until you reach the lake and then climbing back down. Would not recommend toddlers due to steep stairs and ice. The lake was semi frozen but still beautiful. Gave my thighs a workout for sure.

I'm sure it's great when there is no snow. There is currently tons of slippery ice and snow! We did it but it was sketchy!

We actually had a really fun time walking this urban trail. Yes, we threw snowballs at each other along the way—and it was almost 60 degrees outside! Once out of the businesses, the trail continues to follow the creek through a quiet residential area to this cool, old stone mill. The kids loved the place, and it’s always good to have an actual arrival point with kids. Fun 2 miles on a pretty Springlike day!

Great day for the hike! We wore our crampons, it helped with the switch backs, but once you get past the 1st mile it flattens out and you get to enjoy a nice view all the way to the look.

The trail is hard packed all the way to the falls. Spikes come in handy for the final accent. Really cool icicles on the falls right now.

This is the steeper but shorter trailhead. It’s less popular so I have found it easier to get parking.

Gorgeous area ! Spectacular waterfall. It’s a must !!! I’ve hiked it a few times.

Beautiful scenery. Steep in the beginning and evens out after the first mile.

Gorgeous hike. Worth it to hike to waterfall. This was my little border collie puppy, Koa first hike...so much fun. I recommend bringing water and a snack for yourself and dog. If you have micro spikes for your hiking boots bring them. There was on spot going back with ice where we had to slide down and I had to have my boyfriend catch me because I went down super fast.

Nice and easy for the whole family. Not much water flowing and a bit of ice on the creek. The trail is clear but watch your footing on the way back down.

We went on a sunset hike here tonight. The first 50 yards or so was a sheet of ice, and the rest just had some really muddy spots. Views along the ridge line were beautiful.

Beautiful covered in snow. Easy hike with spikes on (lots of ice). A bit windy too.

Almost no ice or snow left right now and it's been perfect weather for hiking

its nice and relaxing for me and my 6 yr old son.and friends.it depends on your mood if you want a challenge or work out.either way your moving and losing some calories.you can go down by the dry river and hike up to the trails.

Awesome short hike. Beautiful scenery most everywhere. I hiked from the Spruces Campground for an extra long walk through the quiet forest. The last stretch is treacherous during an icy winter; bring boot spikes. Big difference during the winter? Hardly ANY traffic, especially early in the mornings.

A good short hike that ends with a beautiful view in multiple directions. Be prepared to walk a ways up a snowy road to the trailhead if you go during the winter time.

Amazing views! This was a bit more difficult in the snow and the trails were icy in spots. Need to wear good shoes/boots to accommodate the snow/ice

This was a wonderful hike, beautful scenery and waterfall. The snow covers 90% of the trail, but the footing is safe and trails are clear.

Great trail. Some icy spots. Beautiful waterfall in a cave at the end.

Short hike, very steep at first. Great view at the end. I went a couple of weeks ago and it was super muddy from the snow melting.

Easy hike with just snow boots. If you want to go all the way up to the waterfall, spikes would be a good idea. Went on a Sunday afternoon and it was not crowded at all. Very pretty and scenic.

Just went on this hike. It was good. Short. Beautiful icicles and running water. Wear good shoes that can cut the snow my buddy wore tennis shoes and slid around, I wore water proof hiking boots and walked like a pro.

Awesome hike with a great views and scenery.

Most difficult part was the beginning and then it flattens out as you get to the overlook of the city. Overall, it was a decent hike with some pretty good scenery of the the mountains and city.
