This hike was really fun! It was pretty easy but still kicked our butts with that incline. The little water fall and Lake were very pretty.

Went in late May 2017, turned around after Ennis pass due to snow. Take the Corner Canyon dirt road from Highland Dr. (closed in winter and bad weather). Park at Jacobs Ladder / Ghost Falls trail-head. Some easy switchbacks and then a smooth uphill climb to Lone Rock. From here things change dramatically. The trail seems to go straight up the South face with no switchbacks. Very steep. At times it's like a bobsled track only much steeper. Just before Ennis Peak the trail meets the Draper Ridge trail. From there it gets easier for a time. You can break off and visit the Outlaw Cabin of follow the cairns up a boulder field to the cirque below the peak. Summiting the peak is challenging. The final 200 yards are not for the faint of heart or those with fear of heights. The summit itself is quite small and windy but beautiful beyond words. I summited earlier in life before I worried about such things. On the way back down, wear gloves to grab at the branches to slow your descent. gravel collects in the bottom of the bobsled track and makes slipping and falling on your butt common. There is no water on this route after May/June. There is a trail to a spring but I didn't check it out.

Beautiful waterfall! Do it again

gorgeous view. would rate as moderate for kids. Not much shade. parking lot is small. on weekends you'll most likely be parking down the street. trail is popular.

There are two trailheads to this hike. The one shown is called the Boulders and is more difficult and steep than the northern trail. I would rate this route as moderate. The view was absolutely stunning.

We drove right up to the first dirt road we hit following the directions and it was blocked off by a chain fence. No motorized vehicles allowed. We still had 20 minutes left to reach the trailhead.

It was hard, but definitely worth it!
