Great trail with awesome views. The fall colors were great. Trail was pretty sloppy due to snow melt and there was still considerable snow along the way.

Great hike. Beautiful fall colors. Trail was sloppy due to snow melt. Many sections were still covered by snow. Excellent loop hike though.

Nice little hike. Very kid friendly. Great views with shade. Not too crowded. Another hiker reported a black bear just off the trail by the upper fall.

Outstanding hike. First few miles are wooded with intermittent clearings which offer beautiful views. Nice grade (used for horses as well). We encountered a group of mountain goats at the pass. Reasonable scramble to the second ridge line if you take the western face ascent. Problem was, we couldn't find a good way up the final ascent and had to turn back after some serious climbing was involved. Think we should have gone a bit further to the south before heading up. Otherwise, you could cut across the north face at about 3 miles in, and scramble up to the ridge and follow to the summit from the east (that's what we'll try the next time). All-in-all a great hike.

Great easy hike that my 6 year old and 4 year old did easily. They loved the waterfall and I loved the view above the waterfall. Nice, easy hike!

My favorite lake hike that I have done so far. Really amazing views as you hike and at the top.

Trail is not clear. It is very overgrown and you cannot get all the way to the top of the hill safely. Views were beautiful but this is not a great hiking trail.

Great trail! Serious bear country. The swim holes are gorgeous but you'll have to look for them and hike down a small easy incline to get to them. There is a private gate which was closed, meaning you'll have to walk in about a mile on the trail before getting to where this hike says 5.7 miles. If the gate is locked, be prepared to hike about 8 miles round trip if you want to follow this map.

This is a beautiful trail! It actually is only 3 miles as listed, not 8. There are 8 mile loops up there, but this is not it. Best place to park is at the fork in the road before entering the campground. The entrance to the trail is just to the left of the main road marked TR411. Follow that around for a nice loop.
