One of my favorite short hikes. The falls and pool are beauriful. Be sure to go when the runoff is at its peak.

Easy hike, and very beautiful. Went yesterday and got there at 6am, only saw a small group of people as we got back to our car. I recommend going early to beat the crowd. Quite a bit of snow still on the ground, but I managed to go through easily with a pair of nikes.

One of my favorites ever!!!

We went on this hike yesterday without checking the weather conditions. It was very snowy on the trail and got deeper as we went. What we could make of the trail was quite narrow, and at times it felt like we were walking along the edge of a cliff (side of the mountain). I used some of the deeper snow to help steady my footing (some reaching to my knees), but I still ended up slipping and falling far too many times to count. At least the snow is soft padding. The trail takes you through some rocky areas with snow run-off that are pleasant to look at. Like others said, the trail longer than noted, at least 5 miles round trip according to my phone. The final stretch to the top is very steep and I sort of had to climb in the snowy dirt and have my boyfriend push me up to the top. Once we got there, the view of the lake was beautiful. Walking back was slick, and unfortunately it started getting dark. There were narrow snow trenches we had to carefully walk through. I like to believe the hike would’ve been more enjoyable without the cold and snow. We did feel accomplished once we completed it though. I would recommend getting an early start and keeping snacks and warm clothing with you.

Beautiful, short hike over packed snow. Family friendly and definitely worth it. Expect snow until mid March.

Awesome hike. Soft on your feet and beautiful trees. The view of the pool is incredible from above. Really cold water. Heavy trafficked trail

One of my favorite hikes! Went in early July, great views with lots of butterflies and blooming flowers! Bit of an incline to the top but it’s well worth it.

Great place to hike when it's not to crowded

This hike is truly worth it! One of our favorites! We will definitely do again! Incredible views from the top!

Hiked this 2/9/18- hard snow-pack on the trail most of the way. Brought snow shoes but never used them. Did use yak-traks. Astounding views and quite windy at 7400’. Brings lots of calories cuz you will the fuel...saw a few skiers, climbers, backpackers but overall it was quite serene. Started at 0840, and ended at 1530. The trek back was extremely slick-almost fell many times. We clocked 11 Miles round trip and almost made it to the top of the spur, but it was just too icy.

Wonderful hike

One of my favorites, will definitely be back to do this one again.

Hiked 2/4. Road up to the trailhead and trail in good shape. Last 1/4 mile a bit dicey with snow. It was doable in boots for sure, but would have felt a bit better in yak tracks.

Pretty spicy little moderate hike. Fantastic views. Little bit of snow on the top. Not enough to warrant snowshoes or spikes. Wind shifts up top and temps plummet. Layer accordingly.

This was a great hike! Definitely appropriately rated, not hard but not easy. It's a skinnier trail, but we'll maintained. there were a lot of down trees in one section, but crews appeared to have cut through them. Constant, but gradual elevation gain the whole way up. We went on a misty day, but we were still able to get a great view of the lake! Would love to do this hike again!

Steady climb but nothing too strenuous, worth the climb even on a cloudy day. Definitely will do it again when we can see the mountains!

Wonderful hike! A little muddy but still enjoyable. However, I almost missed the pool! If you reach a sign that says “does not loop around” you’ve gone too far.

5 star view, hike was %99 uphill to the top. Don’t go in January like me, save it for warmer months based on the tower being closed and other ALLTRAILS photos. Also did SMITH ROCK yesterday so this one doesn’t come close in comparison.

The View was amazing once you got there. But it should definitely be rated as hard not moderate. Kicked all of our butts, had some of our party turn and go back.

Went with a group of friends back in July 2017 and had a blast. We went at 430 in the morning to see the sunrise, definitely worth doing again!! I can’t wait to visit so I can go back

Great for families and their first-time backpacking trips

Snow on the trail right now it was a little sketching nearing the peak. The views were beautiful all the way up saving the best for last. Definitely worth it if you got a couple hours or 3 to spare.

easy nice views

It was an amazing hike! The trek up seemed never ending but totally worth every single step! The view was incredible!

A bit icy toward the top but phenomenal views!

Nice burn, and great views all the way up. Hit it early to beat traffic.

Great day hike.

About kicked my but. Loved this hike. Plan to put it on my annual list. Not for the timid. A beautiful 360° view. Respect the beauty of the forest and leave no trace.

This was a hard hike, and it was so worth it!!
