Great views of the waterfall!

Five start rating for the views, but if you don't like being in crowds then this is not the hike for you. Hiking clockwise can be more strenuous than counter clockwise which has a more gentle assent. The wildflowers are beautiful at this time with many opportunity's for picture taking, just remember though to stay on the designated trails.

Got in early and it wasn't too crowded for a Saturday. Gorgeous falls with good chances for nice photos. Friendly hikers. Easy trail down, not too tough back up but I did sweat.

The water was absolutely amazing and cold! The views were good too. We went to the lookout point of snow lake first, then snow lake, which took about 1.5 hours. The hike down took about 1 hour. Swimming in snow lake was really nice, not crowded at all, would recommend, great life experience to swim in an alpine lake.

Perfect hike with family to get feel for great NW.

Spectular views, mostly well accessible. Bit crowded at the beginning but the further up you get, there will be less people. It gets strenuous at times, but there are enough places to catch your breath and take in the scenery. Parking is difficult if you don’t start early. Bring enough water and snacks.

Phenomenal hike, definitely harder than I thought it would be but totally worth it. Snow Lake was colder but it felt so good to swim in such a clean lake :) View from the top before heading down to the lake is so worth it!!!

Hike is okay. The view is nothing spectacular up top. When I got back at 10am Sunday, the parking lot was full, so get there early.

If you want to hop off your tour bus and see some easy waterfalls then you will enjoy. if you want to hike to the bottom of the falls and escape the tour buses then you will not enjoy. The hike to the bottom is just a viewing platform, you are not able to get very close to the water unfortunately.

Lots of parking and people.

Loved it. The stairs were rough but after that, it was amazing. The difference in views around each corner was breathtaking. Then of course the payoff at the end. ♥️

Beautiful hike, we love it

Fairly steep but great trail. Leave early to avoid the crowds.

Wonderful day on the mountain. I'm old and slow so it took me 5 hours, lots of time to enjoy the scenery and photograph the flowers that were out. Started early, well before the crowds arrived. Highly recommended! even for you "creaky knee" set.

It was harder than i thought, but the view was worth it. Wear your hiking shoes, u wont regret it. We started the trail at 7am, so it was not crowded.

I’m new to hiking so I wasn’t sure how I’d do on this one being all uphill but it wasn’t so hard to get to Comet Falls and it was beautiful all the way. We went ahead and went all the way to Van Trump Park, which for me was quite a challenge. My phone tracked me going up 150 flights in less than 4 miles. At the top we saw some mountain goats in the distance. It was beautiful up there.

Great trail with lots of views- if you’re in pretty good shape give or take 3 hours with stops (took me 2.5 going clockwise with picture taking). If you have knee trouble or not a typical hiker, plan the recommended time. The first mile or so is high grade, but I feel it levels out nicely after that. No hairy spots, didn’t use poles. Great views of wild flowers and hoary marmots.

First hike in the PNW and although it was great to get out... this hikes “work to reward” (views) ratio was lackluster.

Good exercise, and great for your first trail run. Really crowded trail. If you are interested in great views it is better to go elsewhere.

Took this hike with my very athletic son. He never broke a sweat, however I certainly did! Gorgeous views and quite a workout for me.

I went at 10 am on a Friday morning and it was uncomfortably packed. There were at least two scout groups of about ten to fifteen kids, and two adult groups of about ten each later up the trail. Not to mention the numerous single and double hikers. Because of the crowds the hike became unbearably slow and wasn’t tranquil. I guess I am a bit of a curmudgeonly hiker.

Having said the above, Pros: pretty views, lovely foliage, usually nice weather during the summer. Cons: going very slowly due to getting stuck behind so many crowds, listening to lots of other people’s conversations, stopping often to let others pass the opposite direction, difficulty finding parking.

I will say that this is a great hike for children because it has a fun payout for not too much effort. Just be sure to use the bathroom before you get to the trailhead because the bathrooms there are so gross.

I hope you all have a better experience than I did. :-) Happy hiking!

Snow Lake is beautiful, lots of people on the trail. Not difficult so a lot of day hikers. Beautiful campsites and quiet at night.

great hike and loved the view of falls

worth the trip down to the lake once you've "gotten to the top".

Beautiful trail with great overlooks. You cross several bridges and there are 2 stream crossings, so waterproof shoes would be helpful (although not required for those with good balance that can move from rock to rock). Depending on your preference, moving counter clockwise on the trail will result in a more gradual, but longer climb, while going clockwise results in a steeper grade for a shorter time. We went clockwise and I would probably do that direction again. We came in July and some of the trail was still snow covered, but doable with standard hiking equipment.

All uphill with a few straight aways...Its best to be in shape before taking this hike. Well worth the views! Real rocky watch your step. The jog down was nice

Great hike. Gorgeous views!!

short, but steep hike for conditioning purpose. did it non-stop and took about 50 mins at my pace with a group of friends going up.
the view is good, both from cherico point and poo poo point which is further up.

parking lot is free. took 25 mins from bellevue. great location and great trail.

Awesome hike. Waterfalls are a must see.

Great day hike! For sure harder than I thought it would be. The view is worth it for sure!
