Great hike, and some climbing at the top of the falls. I've enjoyed going up Horsetail Falls to Pyramid Peak. The trail head is a little funky, staying by the water will help you stay on trail..

Vistas rad!!

Due this trail being so popular and short, I have tried to do this trail in the winter months.
The first time in early 2017 we were unable to complete the trail due to so much snow on the ground and high water.
This time we hit it just right! Headed up right after a storm that dumped snow only above 6000' and maybe 6 to 8" of fresh powder.
I do not suggest attempting this trail when snow is deep. To many areas where avalanches may occur. There is a ton of water on the trail so bring your tall boots.
The scenery was awesome!
Our tracks are a little off due to the snow cover but managed to stay on track better on the back half.

Almost every section is either very steep downhill or very steep uphill, should be rated as hard there was some solid scenery which started to make up for it.

Beautiful hike. Sometime the trail was hard to stay on. Look for the hiking signs on the trees if you do get off the trail. Waterfall still going strong 11/12/17. Can’t wait to do it again

Fun hike with beautiful views but the trail was hard to follow. Not very well marked. It was an adventure! We had a great time.

absolutely love this trail. The hike in was great even the switchback at the top isn't that bad. I'll make this a regular hike from now on. parking at the entrance to camp sacramento was easy.

Very short hike. I did this in the winter and it was nice.
Spring and summer gets packed with people.
We hiked out from Round Top this way and with snow shoes on it was a long slite up hill to Carson Pass.

One of my favorite places to hike.
I prefer winter months but spring is excellent too.

We probably got the last backpack of the season continuing past Grouse Lake to Smith Lake for 1 night (very cold and windy night), as we were hiking over snow from 8000' onwards and it began to get thick past Grouse Lake. Still great for hiking though and is well tread so the trail is easy to follow. All uphill so it's good work getting there, but lovely views and the lakes make it well worth it.

Excellent hike. Micro spikes would help a lot.
