Wonderful trail! Hiked it for the fourth time today. Lot was almost full on a Monday morning by 9:30. Get there early to beat the sun & make sure you can do the hike! Parking is very limited.

Moderate hike up 1.5 miles to the avalanche cabin. Wet snow.

Very awesome and beautiful hike, we started up just after 8, a little traffic, but not excessive on the way up. My 3 year old made it to the top with a little help along the way, but not much. We headed down around 930 or so and the trail was packed with people heading up. Very strongly suggest going early in the day.

Awesome, moderate trail. Great for dogs.

Nice easy hike along the river. A little steeper and more narrow of a trail as you head towards the bridge. Beautiful hike in May with lots of water from the Spring melt.

Saw the sign for this trail on a road trip and decided to take a break and hike this trail. The uphill is pretty intense but it's definitely worth it. Also after you see hanging lake take the smaller trail up to the left to see another waterfall you can walk behind.

first time I took the truck out for some 4x4. no one else was out there so it was awesome.

Gorgeous hike along the creek and many small waterfalls. Didn't get real far as the snow is very heavy and wet. I will be back!

We hiked this on a somewhat rainy day, so it was not as crowded. Spring runoff made for fantastic views all the way to the lake. It was a bit of a challenge because of minor flooding along the trail. For comfort and safety wear good hiking shoes. The trail is often rocky and sometimes steep, but well worth the effort. Take your time if you don't hike much. Do make a point of climbing the short distance to Spout Rock. Such fun!!

Great easy trail to hike! It is so beautiful and follows the lake around a loop but you also get a nice surprise and get to walk across the falls! Really great hike. Loved it!

Short but steep hike to a beautiful little lake. A "must do" if in the area.

This was my first ever 14er, and boy did I love it! The views from the top are amazing and the hike is great for anyone who wants to start hiking 14ers.
