Get there early. Excellently maintained trail. Great view from the middle.

Really good hike. Kid friendly and good balance is sun and shade.

Great hike for the first two lower falls, the last one really is a killer for the stairs to get to the top falls!

Beautiful views and easy hike. I love the hike in terms of convenience. Less travel time and no hassles in terms of parking.

Excellent views during the hike. The hike itself was confusing, we kept going back and forth with the map instructions matching with the sign posts. i gave a 4* cause the restrooms were locked! Overall, we enjoyed but I would definitely advise hikers to plan the route.

My first major summit. It's a hard climb, but worth it at the top.

One of the best hikes I’ve ever done. Challenging but worth it. Road is washed out so it’s 2 miles to trailhead. From trailhead you climb 3000 feet in right over 3 miles. At 3.2ish you’ll reach virgin lake, it was frozen over today (11/17). From virgin lake it’s all downhill to Blanca lake, about 0.82 miles. Snow was packed down but yactracks and poles were super helpful.

I did this hike 2 months ago. Trail is well kept. Pet friendly and just gorgeous spot to visit.

I did this hike awhile back It can get crowded but enjoyed it all the same!

So beautiful especially when the larch trees are in all their autumn glory. I hiked this 10/24 and the larches were in full effect. I hiked counterclockwise and I was very happy with the decision. It was a busy trail even on a Wednesday so I would suggest off peak times if possible.

Super short and easy, but very pretty waterfall with a little area to relax and enjoy the view after we did some more strenuous hikes in the morning.

Added on after hiking Mt Storm King and it was a pretty lackluster waterfall compared to others in the area. Trail was crowded due to being an easier hike.

Ice last on north side out of sun
Still quite doable

It took about 2h30m getting to the lake and 1h30m going down for my team. It was so windy at the lake while we got there (about 2pm).

Great long hike with rewarding views at the end. There are beautiful waterfalls along the way.

Beautiful, well maintained trail alongside a river. Slightly muddy but nothing too bad. The waterfall is beautiful and you can get pretty close.

Awesome. That’s all that needs to be said.

great hike!!! lots of stairs!!! went early beat the crowds!!!

Absolutely stunning view. Went in the middle of November. It was chilly and icy. But soo worth it! My favorite so far

Hiked from Heather Meadows - lots of snow but still totally worthwhile and doable (note that there were lots of tracks from groups prior, so we never had difficulty trying to find the trail). Would recommend getting up there if the weather is nice, otherwise look forward to the flowers in 2019.

Super day out there! Nice and sunny and trail was good. I would obviously still recommend mountain gear, poles, crampons etc. it was a great day! Trails were great!

It was an easy hike... it got cold at the top. Enjoy the hike.

Sumitted November 8th!... a bit chilly, but no wind at the top, and amazing sunny views! Definitely appreciated crampons near the summit. This is a challenging hike! I am an avid hiker and runner and my body hurts in ways it rarely does 2 days later... but well worth it!!

Very pretty, easy hike. It's great for a fall/winter hike when the skies aren't as clear. Can't believe how many big and small falls there are.

good for kids
