Pleasant easy walk in the winter, when there are few visitors. beautiful forest.

Nothing short of amazing. I have done this hike four times this year but the winter brings a whole new beauty to this hike. Waterfall is mostly frozen. Beautiful take your camera.

A beautiful hike!

It's a steep hike that offers really cool views of the Salt Lake Valley. Not one of my favourites as there's no waterfalls, rivers or lakes to look at. It is doable in winter and I enjoyed myself over all, but it is exhausting fighting all that snow and it delays you. Make sure you have more time than you think you need before sunset. It's dangerous with light-hearted sliding down the steep, slick trail.

Loved this hike. Views of the valley, tree's, tree's and more tree's then opening, then tree's then the gorgeous lake. Trail was packed down pretty well until the last half mile or so. Then snowshoes would be helpful but we didn't use them. A sled would have been helpful on the way down as well.

Just finished this hike. If your looking for a way out of the inversion soup, this is a great little hike to get above it. The trail is hard pack snow, making it a really nice, smooth hike. It’s actually a more comfortable hike than in summer in my opinion. With micro spikes and poles you’ll have zero problems on this trail. Beautiful, sunny warm skies up there above the smog. It’s well worth it!!

Awesome trail! So beautiful. We had a 2 &7 yr old with us do it took 5 hours. The last hour was dark. But really beautiful.

Did this on 1/11, the path to lower falls is packed and wide, a little icy at parts - microspikes were ideal, but not necessary for this section. Heading uphill after lower falls the path is much less used - snowshoes were pretty necessary, otherwise you'd be sinking 8-12" with each step. I couldn't get much past upper falls without sinking a lot, even with snowshoes, that section is clearly not travelled much in the winter.

Amazing Waterfall

This was the first place we stopped on our road trip to Oregon, the trail was closed because of the fires in 2017 but the falls themselves were absolutely gorgeous! definitely a lot of people there and you really have to wait to get on the bridge but it was worth it!

I'm so sad that this trail is closed. I had some really amazing memories there.

One of my favorite trails I’ve ever hiked!! Love the river that’s right next to you and the scenery is amazing!! Definitely a must do!!

Great hike! Bring those spikes!

Beautiful hike

Just got down. Only spikes used, some areas I wish I had poles but overall doable without, at this time. Thanks to the postholers, everything is mostly compact. Great hike.

Hiked on 1/5/19, most area are covered with packed snow, but last 1/4 will definitely need snowshoe.

Most Definitely a Wasatch Favorite. I did this on Pioneer day '18 and getting up to the lake was incredibly fast but climbing up to the ridge slows you down. once you get up to where the high lakes are (or supposed to be anyway.. dried out wheb we went) you are supposed to start climbing to the right and We initially missed the turn and ended up boulder hopping to the south ridge and had to cross our way over. once the pheif was in view it was pretty straight foreward and needless to say we took the correct way down which was much easier to see from up above. I will definitely do it again but now I know where to go! my advice to first timers is pay attention once you start working above the lake and stay to the right. It will save you a lot of time and effort.

AN ABSOLUTE MUST SEE!!! Has to be one of the most beautiful places on this planet. Steep, but my kids were able to do it just fine.

Way too many people here to enjoy the water falls base. But the higher you go up the fewer people there are and the view improves too. Since the fire happened the trees are thinner allowing you to see more of the river and the far side of the river. I love Multnomah Falls but I wish it was less accessible to Instagram model wannabes.

Hiked this on New year's day and it was great! Lots of fresh snow, but still not hard to find the trail to the lake. The first half (until the fork to Dog Lake) we carried snowshoes because boots were enough, after that (while not entirely necessary, some people only had microspikes) we were glad to have the snowshoes, it certainly made the trek easier!

Beautiful hike this morning. Only used spikes. Did some post holing about the last half mile.

Hiked before a snowstorm hit on December 30th. Kind of wish I’d taken the East trail as the West seemed to have deeper snow..It was a slog through all of the snow and definitely would recommend setting aside 3-4 hours at least in the winter to summit. Powder levels at the summit were almost 4 feet and deeper in some areas so you really have to watch your step and the coming back down was slippery. Microspikes and waterproof spray for boots/water resistant boots are a must this time of year. Want to hike in the summer now.

lovely easy hike, not much of a lake but the views and that forest is totally worth it.

Great hike, great views. I would say its even better to do this hike in the winter on a nice day...just really beautiful from top to bottom with the snow. Microspikes are the way to go. If you're not running up or down the trail I would say you could knock this out 2/1/2 - 3 hrs of actual hiking time if you're in moderate shape. If you do run down it takes about 35-45 mins with some stretches of walking.

gorgeous setting & great trail flow. never too technical but plenty of rock & root features scattered throughout. lots of creek crossings, quiet park & moss covered trail make for a terrific getaway from a busy lake area.

Fairly easy, though there is a paved road side and an unpaved side that’s a little more challenging.

Great views of half dome. Areas to stop and throw rocks in the water, if that’s of interest. Decent picnic type hike. Still open and clear in the winter.

Park at north pines camp ground if you can. There’s also a shuttle stop if you are able to get on the shuttle.

Magnificent views, deep powder, and beautiful forests.

Beautiful!!!!! Work driving out from Portland to see it. About 40 minutes away from the downtown. There’s a restaurant and lounge here too. We didn’t go in, but good to know for next time. We walked alway to waterfall and had to head back as it was raining. Feet were soaked, otherwise we would have done entire hike.

Glacier Park in your backyard? You've gotta see this! Amazing waterfalls and fun hiking for most ages.

Was an amazing hike. Me and my 2 daughters (age 14 and 12) hiked the entire loop in middle July 2018. Was a challenge with the thin air but worth every loss of breath. Will hike this loop again in the future but not anytime soon as we live in Iowa. A MUST HIKE for anyone wanting breathtaking views the entire time. We did it in 4 days and 3 nights.
