My friends and I enjoyed this hike very much. It offers a nice incline on the way up to the waterfall, and then the decline back down isn't too bad. Didn't see too many people for a Saturday. The waterfall is such a reward. You can hike up to the top of it. If you want after you hike to the top you can cross the water hike down a bit, and see the waterfall fully; but, there is no well marked trail to do this.

Nice easy trail. Nice views of the valley and mountains

37 degrees, snow on the trail the last half mile or so.. great hike!!

This trail can be temperamental. We ran in to a snow storm on top Labor Day 2016 despite decent weather at the valley floor. Beautiful hike.

We backpacked in to Baker Lake, camped and then went up via the Gem Lake Gully. We returned via the Baker Lake Ridge. The return has a steep decent close to Baker. Gem Lake Gully was a climb but not too tough. My 4 year old son did the whole hike to the summit unaided. The trailhead trail doesn't go directly to Baker Lake. We tried to head back to the trailhead after getting cached bags at Baker and we followed cairns that did not go back to the trail. We ended up getting lost and had to simply camp another night in the woods until the sun came up. We had to call Search and Rescue to ping our exact location and they said it is very common for people coming out of Baker Lake to miss the trail. Just made for an even funner memory. Make sure you properly find the trail if you head back via Baker Lake. This is a nice step up if your family has done some of the easier hikes around the area (such as Lolo Peak, St. Mary's and Cha Pa Quinn). Have fun!

Hard but worth it. Trail in beautiful condition. would not take a car to trail head lots of rocks. 3.8 miles each way, all up. Easily most beautiful payoff of the summer.

Awesome hike! We only saw one other person on the trail the entire day. The middle portion flattens out and is a nice break before the climb to the top. The trail to the top was quite warm but had amazing views along the way! We met the person manning the lookout and he was really nice. He even have our 3 and 6 year olds a tour of the lookout. We are definitely going back!
