Comet Falls was impressive and a great hike in the trees. saw a few marmots along the creek.

Awesome

The driving up the mountain is beautiful. The trails are great. Most are not marked well but I don’t think you can go wrong on any trail. The trail by the stream is awesome. Best hiking trails I’ve been on!

Walked this trail in January on a gorgeous clear day. It cemented my new found love of the Rockies!

I will definitely do this hike again!

This trail is awesome because it gives people who can't hike to some of the other mountain lakes a chance to see one almost just as good. This trail is wheelchair accessible. The lake is beautiful and it is a great place to hike. The trail also connects to a large loop that connects several mountain lakes. You don't want to miss this one.

Very nice. Pretty populated while I was there, unfortunately.

A fun and quick little trail with plenty to see along the way. Starting at Lake Crescent, you pass through a small tunnel and into a mossy forest. It’s a straightforward walk to the falls with not much climbing at all. Perfect for all ages. We went in early July and the level of Mosquitos was border line unbearable. We found this was the case in most of the hikes we did so take bug spray! You will pass by a few bridges that cross over some creeks that are great for pictures. And finally once at the falls, make sure you climb up to the second platform for a better view. The falls themselves are not the greatest sight on earth but the trail makes it worth the easy venture.

Nice trail. Saw one post that it was not well marked, but only found that to be true near the top where trail changed names. Rated a 4 b/c we ran into dirt bikers on trial, not real the reason I hike.

Gorgeous views. Easy half mile hike. Perfect for kids.

Amazing!!! Absolutely wonderful views! Waterfalls and rivers the whole way up

Steep ascent. Brilliant sunrise over Dream Lake.

Incredible hike! Steady switchbacks all the way up but nothing too tough. The views are absolutely stunning the whole way. A little snow towards the top but definitely passable and the 360 views at the top are breathtaking.. Road up to the trail head is long and rough, but worth it.

Loved it! It was nice and serene. It wasn’t too busy at 8:30 am but coming down I noticed it started to get a bit more populated. Once back to my car the lot was full (both top and lower). I had a good hike and will come back again.

I took my 7 and 10yr old on this trail. It was a nice shaded trail, the girls enjoyed playing in the water along the way. Lots of traffic

Fabulous little hike! The stream that flows along the trail was beautiful! Loved the shade and clean, well maintained trails!

Crowded but so beautiful. Not much of a hike at all.

Easy to moderate, gets your muscles working but nothing too strenuous. Maybe not the best for young children in some parts for inexperienced/non-local people like myself but still doable!

Great hike. Amazing views the entire way.

A quick and easy walk. I’d recommend doing this as a cool down from the Emerald Lake Trail.

Amazing views—waterfall took my breath away

For as little effort this trail requires, the views are amazing!! There’s still a bit of snow at the top, but nothing terrible! It’s passable with boots and poles if needed! Also a lot of friendly marmots about at the top

absolutely beautiful lake. i wish i could’ve made it further but was experiencing altitude sickness. but dream lake is definitely doable if you experience that if you take breaks and go at your own pace. before i got there, there was a bear sighting too

This trail is super pretty! When you drive up to Helen Hunt Falls, the very top parking lot is pretty crazy. I parked at the lower one and hiking up the road about 1/2 a mile. A really nice gradual incline hike.

Gorgeous, easy trail. Wish it was longer. Beautiful lake. Lots if room to picnic, swim and play.

Get into the parking lot early! You need to walk a little over a 1/2 mile to get to the trail. The trail is NOT marked as 7 Bridges Trail, It is marked as Trail 622. Beautiful hike along a beautiful river with waterfalls throughout. It is uphill all the way, bridges clearly marked. Starts off fairly easy and gets more rigorous as you progress.
