Very good hike with some nice scenery. The first leg is very easy with an easy incline. Once you enter the forests trail things do change slightly but still manageable for even novices. The last 500 yards are the worst, but take your time and enjoy the beautiful sight that makes it worth while

Park at the waste transfer site, be aware there is no signage for this trail from the highway, so be prepared to turn in. Once there walk around the left side of the fenced in site and then you will see the sign for the trail. Fairly easy up then nice little windy single track to the edge of the creek. Mind you at the top. We had our two little experienced ones with us as usual 4 and 6 years old. The descent to the falls from the ridge is quite steep and has been beat down by traffic. But we made it slowly and the falls is a nice treat. Leaving we crossed over the creek at the base of the falls, made it down half a km and crossed back on a narrow point where the ascent back to the trail is minimal compared to the descent.

Was a hard climb. Lots of loose scree in spots. Very vertical, so if you have a fear of heights probably not for you. Hiking poles saved me a few times. The views on this hike are amazing.... totally worth the hard work

Fabulous view of the lake surrounded by mountains, with comfortable and well maintained camp ground. And you can experience it all after a couple of days of hiking if you enter the trail from Landslide lake trailhead, it might involve some bush whacking and some swamps crossing, but for the most part the trail is well maintained and marked (GPS still might be a good tool to have).
The pass on the way out had a lot of snow in the mid of July, and a lot of breathtaking views, and just several hours of hiking up, then through the valleys, and then all the way down towards highway 93.

Of course you must take the steep decline to get to the falls !! its not that bad ! it's beautiful down there you can actually sit on the rock beside the falls. I'm shocked to read that people just stopped at the top !

not the greatest trail itself, and if you want to see the falls at a reasonable distance you need to take a steep decline where the map on here ends. that said, it's short and friendly for many skill levels.

Insane view at the top, but this is not for the faint of heart. Be in good shape, have poles and good footing. If you want, you can go about 1/4 way and still get a great pano of the lake.

May 6 2017. Beautiful weather. Very hard but worth it. Would not recommend this for beginners due to the scree which you encounter about 1/2 way as well as the steep angle of the hike. I have knees that like to go one way - up - very hard on the knees coming down but just take your time. Definitely use poles. The wind at the top was very strong and cold due to our late spring - still snow on top. Wow - can't believe I did it! 3 1/2 hours to go up and 2 down.

Hiked this late February, trail had little snow and summit was easily accessible. Clear day and had amazing views!

did this hike late November and they are not kidding when they so difficulty hard. it is straight up and straight back down. walking sticks/poles would be a great idea. the view is incredible!
