This was so worth every step! If you can find the falls, you will be so glad you made this hike. It’s absolutely incredible. We met a person on the trail that said she finally found the trail everyone was talking about and this was her third attempt. She pointed us in the right direction. I’m not sure we would have found it had we not run into her. It’s definitely not well marked and is pretty tricky. You take an immediate left after the second bridge and start climbing your way over trees and rocks and there’s loose dirt everywhere. We took our 11 and 7 year olds and they navigated just fine, but honestly it was a little sketchy at times. I would definitely not take kids that are prone to not paying attention or immediately following parent instructions. That water was powerful and moving fast and the trail cuts really close. Its totally worth it if you’re up for the adventure!

The main part of this hike is up a wide, very rocky path. The scenery and the canyon is absolutely beautiful and very green right now. I would have preferred to go earlier in the morning as our hike back down was fairly warm (about 2:00) but there were still several areas of shade, so that helps. Once you get up to the Red Pine trail turn off, proceed up a smaller trail (marked as 'trail'). You will go over a longer bridge over the river. Turn left and proceed up the trail by the river. As people have said, you have to weave your way around branches and at times the trail is hard to find and steep, but keep going. The falls are incredible and very full. There is so much water coming down the canyon right now and moving very fast, parents use caution. This was the first time we have done this hike and the pay off is worth it.

A challenge to go 1000 ft/mile on a warm July Saturday but the high alpine scenery is completely worth it.

Well, this hike was very strenuous for my weak little chicken legs. I had to keep asking my group if we could take breaks, much to their annoyance. In fact, I complained so much that by the time we reached the lake, one of my friends had tried to feed me to a moose we saw (thankfully the moose didn’t like the taste of asian people), and another friend had purposefully pushed me down into what looked to be poison oak. I became itchy. Despite their efforts to get rid of me, I made it. We reached the lake, which was spectacular, but we had run out of water entirely. We made the decision to fill our bottles with lake water, and now I have been shitting my brains out for three days straight. Regardless of the giardia, it was a beautiful hike and great exercise. The moose were cool to see as well.

I don’t know how you can’t give 5 stars to a mountain peak in the wasatch mountains. Soo amazing! Trail to the peak is pretty defined and there isn’t too much exposure.

Great hike! Tons of amazing views! There is still a ton of snow in the shade and north facing slopes, it’s all manageable without extra equipment though. All the lakes are full, wildflowers are starting to pop up, I would recommend! Only thing was there are TONS of places you can take wrong turns, so using the app really helps! I would also recommend taking the small detour to sunset peak :)

I very much enjoyed this hike and plan to go back in the future. It is a steady incline almost the entire way up but it isn’t too difficult as long as you pace yourself. There are so many beautiful wildflowers along the trail! I would recommend starting early to avoid the heat. Also bring lots of water and bug repellent. It took us 2.5-3 hours to get to the top at a moderate pace with a few rests. We brought hammocks and hung out and explored at the lake for a while. It took a little under 2 hours to descend.

Pretty good shade on this trail if you start before 10am. A mile up, you get to the Red Pine trail turn off. You cross the big bridge and take an IMMEDIATE left. It doesn’t look like much of a trail, but you’ll see it if you are looking. You pick your way along the faint trails on the right side of the creek. If you try to go up on the left side, you won’t be able to get to the waterfall. It takes some scrambling and weaving your way up, but the falls are worth it! The spray is so refreshing. I’d say that most nimble kids could do it, though it might be best for 7 and up. I think it would be tricky with a baby carrier because the branches along the overgrown trail toward the waterfall could be a hazard. This hike is so green right now with wildflowers coming out. The falls are really raging with run-off. But I think doing it in the fall when the canyon is awash in fall colors is even more fun. If you don’t mind pretending you’re a hobbit or part of the Fellowship of the Ring for .2 miles to get to the falls, this is a great hike!

This was a great hike! Honestly not as hard as I was expecting but I’m an avid hiker. Saw 2 moose at the top on the opposite sides of the lake and 3 more moose on our way down! Make sure to go see lake Florence and Lake Lillian (just barely past lake Blanche). Honestly I thought the second lake was prettier than Lake Blanche. The last mile on the way up is the toughest part with the biggest incline. Worth the hike. Go early!!!

I loved this hike! We began early in the morning, relaxed at the top for a long time, and started descending around noon. When we were climbing up, the trail was cool and beautiful, and fully shaded. When we headed down, there wasn’t any shade anywhere! Go early. Lake Blanche is gorgeous, and be sure to see Lake Lillian and Lake Florence, too. Spectacular views! Definitely a challenging hike, but worth the effort.

This was a great hike! The views are amazing and with the snow still melting up top, it makes for great natural sounds!

Pretty difficult trail but defiantly worth the views once you get to the top. We wanted to continue further to Sundial Peak but the hike up took longer than expected. Almost 4 hours up, with a few breaks, and 2 hours down.. Bring lots of water, bug spray and sunscreen.

Great trail! It’s been over twenty years since I’ve been up there and today was fantastic! We saw three Moose along the trail as well! It’s a challenging hike, but so worth it when you get to the top!

Such a fun hike! Beautiful views as your ascending, with a beautiful lookout once you reach the lake. Definitely worth it!

Once you leave Red Pine, the trail can be faint but we didn't find it too difficult to follow. I agree with the previous review, the in-app GPS was a lifesaver when negotiating the snow fields the last half mile approaching the lakes. They are small, but water is plentiful right now due to the epic runoff we're experiencing. I will do this one again if for nothing else the solitude, and the uniquely cool view of the Pfeifferhorn. Recommended!

Great trail. Just love this hike. Steep and beautiful. Went in late afternoon which helped to have lots of shade BUT right about 6:30 the mosquitoes are out and are in force! Don’t forget bug spray or clothing to cover!

Not very hard. I walked nonstop from start to finish and got to the lake in 1:15:00. I was coming down at about 9:30am and it was basically a line of people going up. Beautiful with lots of shade.

nice trail. referencing comments below, weekend hikes are busy. I would rate it at a medium. my 2.5 year old was able to walk a mile or two on the trail before she was tired. what, I think, pushes this rating to hard for some people is the distance. Saw lots of families with their kids at the top.
