The reviews about this trail are pretty fair. Sharing my different experience: The weather forecast for our hike showed rain. It started raining as soon as we got to the lake, so we spent lunchtime in the hut. The lake was completely covered in clouds about half an hour later. We were happy to have seen the lake before the clouds rolled in, because we couldn’t see anything by the time we left!

Love this waterfall. Easy trail to a very cool waterfall.

As expected - a perfect place to enjoy the foliage! Gorgeous views and waterfalls, and the wooden decks are very well maintained! But note that this place is super popular in the fall and prepare to stand in the line for approx.30mins to buy tickets, unfortunately you can’t buy them online. But the trail is definitely worth the wait, you will love it!

Nice, easy little hike; beautiful boulder small-waterfall section at the end with a nice little swimming hole.

Mid-October was a great time to view the lakes and fall foliage. No flies, mosquitoes, or ticks. Overcast skies, but soothing vistas of the ponds. Fresh air - easy walk.

Gorgeous fall color and waterfalls.

great short walk with beautiful views

Nice trail, very easy and long.
With foliage is very beautiful but I don’t think that during regular season is can be so impressive.
It’s a long walk through the forest with few points of interest. I was hoping for more scenic view.
I did the east side of the trail.

Nice short hike. Great views

Straightforward walk for most of the mileage, but nice scenery. Plenty of room for the traffic. Several really nice views overlooking the rocks and river, but most is forest. Waterfall bit is slightly tougher footing, but not that bad. Great place for a lunch and break before heading back.

I’d rate it a harder moderate due to the rocky nature going up in the second half, but it’s so worth it making it to the top. Lake is serene and beautiful, views are fantastic and the hut is a great place to stop for a rest and snack.

Great trail well traveled and fun to hike , the hut at the top on the lake is perfect for having lunch before continuing on. The ducks are so friendly on the lake and the views are so gorgeous especially in fall !

it's a nice and easy trail to hike, perfect for all ages. the fall foliage is spectacular. 16$ seems a bit expensive though, considering there are plenty of beautiful and free hikes around the area.

We did this trail today and lost a navy blue sweatshirt that says SJP soccer. If you find it please email me. Thanks! LUSKCT@gmail.com

Thank you!

Great trail with gorgeous views of the falls

Great family friendly hike. Easy enough but a decent workout. My dog loved it too. Beautiful views of Squam Lake at the top.

We're super slow hikers and this trail took us 3 hours from our camp at Lafayette Place. It's an incline for the first hour and a half and levels out around the lake. Big steps, maybe a scramble or two, but totally worth it. The view of the mountains from the lake was absolutely beautiful. Very chilly late September, so remember a jacket! :)

I'd rate it MODERATE HARD getting lake. EASY around lake and MODERATE going back.

Although it was drizzling with rain and overcast we enjoyed this drive today; late Sept. Cloud obscured most views but the trees were a delight. Yes, there will be more colour over the next few weeks yet we delighted in the lack of traffic and the gentle shades of green and colour.

Love this trail. It’s probably out 10th time over the years. Easy, beautiful and peaceful.

lots of folks with dogs, noisy on top headed over to east rattlesnake a great day go breeze

Easy walk to the falls. A few steps that are a little steep. Very rewarding!!

Easy trip to the falls. Beautiful!

Nice well maintained trails. We took old bridal path to Col trail and made a loop after reaching the peak of west rattle snake. We did a lot of down hill climbing on Col trail before ascending up. A relatively easy trail. We had a four yr old w us who did just great.
