nice hike snow and icey about 3/4 of the way up so be careful..lake is frozen over but the views where spectacular

We did this hike on 3/18/18 and loved it! No snow on the ground. Benches conveniently placed for resting. Most people gave up after the Lower Falls so the higher you go, the less people you see.

Such a beautiful hike! My friend and I love it!

Easy hike definitely not moderate. Only downside was it was not well marked but we didn't have too much issue navigating. Muddy. Pretty falls.

Beautiful hike. We can hear the pleasant sound of water falls all along the hike. You’ll see lower falls, middle falls, and upper falls. We went up to middle falls and Valley overlook. There’s also a bike path all the way to upper falls.

Sunrise hike here is amazing!

The falls are pretty, the hike is fairly level/flat and follows gravel roads most of the way. Easy and not too long!

Nice little park of trails. Went to the north viewpoint and then took La-Z-Boy back down. Will come back here to explore more at some point.

This hike wasn’t tough. It’s easy not moderate. Signage was really bad, went the wrong way twice. Nice stroll though. Wear boots...there is a good amount of mud and 2-3 washed out sections.

Quick and easy hike without hardly any elevation change. The falls at the end of this trail are pretty. It was moderately trafficked in the middle of the day. There are a couple spots where you need to cross the water, so be prepared for that.

It’s a long hike but the lake is beautiful. The water reflects the surroundings and it looks like a mirror.

So fun! And easy, great walk through the woods with abandoned cars along the way!

It’s a nice trail.

Hard but worth it

very easy hike with such a gorgeous waterfall at the end. definitely worth the free hours in and out. definitely must on spots close to the falls.

Visited this trail on 3/3/18. There was still plenty of snow but it was a beautiful sunny day and the trail is fairly easy to traverse with appropriate footwear.

Good workout on this trail today. Muddy in a few spots but overall good. You’ll face your fears on the bridge.

Went with a few friends and it was amazing. I loved following the curve of the hill. :)

Road was closed when i got there. I had to walk extra 2 miles to the trail head, and it was covered with a lot of snow. Will come back when it has better condition.

It was an amazing hike with no snow until the DNR portion of the trail past Upper Falls.

Hiked to Lake 22 on Saturday and the parking lot was full and slightly icy. Had to park across the street in the entrance of the second lot, as that was completely covered in snow and a car got stuck trying to go in. The hike is really pretty easy, definitely icy and lots of snow. The lake is starting to thaw and there was a high avalanche warning, but it seemed safe to me. Super beautiful!

Went on Sunday 3/11/18.. beautiful weather! Went with friends, 4 younger kids, 2 toddlers and a tween. All enjoyed the hike to the falls and no one complained! A great starter hike!

Got to the parking lot around 2:00 pm and found a spot right in the main lot. Weather was gorgeous and the hike was amazing. We hiked all the way to the upper falls. No snow anywhere and not a ton of people since we went later in the afternoon. Hiking beside the river part way was refreshing and all views of the falls were breathtaking! Definitely will be going back.

Beautiful day for a beautiful hike. Mix of dirt, water, slush and snow. Threw on the spikes about a quarter miles from the lake just to get there faster. Lots of people and a tight trail when you have to pull off to let people pass, you’ll go down a snow hole.

Great work out! I loved the variation in trails. We got a bit lost at first but it was definitely worth it!!

Got some really nice pictures of the river

03/11/18 - Beautiful as always. Lots of snow for a majority of the hike, a mix between slush at the bottom and packed at the top. Poles were helpful and I did not have trouble without microspikes, although there would definitely be benefits to having them.

Bring sunglasses!

Beautiful hike! We started at 12:30, and had to park a half mile away from the parking lot (that’s what we get for sleeping in). Unusually warm day for March, so there wasn’t any snow to be seen. Pretty packed trail and there were lots of families and dogs. Beautiful forested views, with sounds from the falls as the day’s ambient noise. Worth the view when you get to the upper falls, but the lower falls view was actually our favorite.

Nice easy hike. Muddy and wet at some spots. Lot was full after noon.

It was a fun and beautiful hike. It is dog friendly too! Be careful if you have a water loving pup because you will get splashed a few times.
