Nice hike, fairly easy. Go early to beat the crowds and to score parking in the lot. We left the springs by 11am as it was getting very busy already, but enjoyed some nice less-busy time earlier in the morning. DON’T park on the street if the lot is full, we passed a cop on the way out ticketing every car on the street. They likely check this area frequently since the lot is small.

Great hike! First few miles are a little hard since they’re uphill, but the views and falls were worth it.

"Dog Lake is lame" said a high school girl at the trailhead as I was coming down, and after hiking it I kind of have to agree with her. There are lots of trees, and I imagine it's beautiful in the Autumn, but it doesn't compare to the grandeur of some of the other hikes in the area. Trail is still snow covered past the Mill A junction, so you'll want boots if your'e going all the way to the lake. I saw lots of moose tracks in the snow, so this might be a good one for you if you're searching for wildlife, but I don't think I'll hike it again.

Holy elevation gain, Batman! You’ll go up, up, and up for awhile on these trails. You get well into the wilderness although civilization remains within view for most of the hikes. There are multiple trails here—some more treacherous and rewarding than others—and there aren’t many folks. You could spend all day here weaving your way through and around the canyon. Don’t be fooled by the residential location. These trails are legit and the payoff in views is worth it.

Fun hike! Lots of shade :) Our fitness tracker calculated a mile more than the distance it shows. Very steep after the first half but worth it for the view!

This is a great hike with beautiful scenery! The hot spings at the end make it that much better. Going on a weekday is also better, like everyone else said. Also keep in mind there are no changing areas at the springs, and if you are hiking back in the evening it can get a little chilly. The fall colors in september/ october are really gorgeous.

This is a great hike but its rated as a hard one for a reason. This is one of the harder summits Ive done, since it climbs so fast. Make sure to bring lots of water, whatever the weather. The scenery and wildlife are great though.

Though I like to think Im an advanced hiker, Im kinda out of shape, so this hike was a little rough for me. There are some long stretches of the trail that have no shade, and the loose scree can be a little challenging. That being said, its a great hike and well worth it. My hubby ( whos in way better shape) loved it, and our two dogs also had a lot of fun.
Another note, use the map or keep a picture of it in your head, we got a little lost when we went the wrong way at one of the forks. The main one I think is the triangular fork in the rocky clearing, make sure to stay to the right.

This trail is beautiful and peaceful in spite of it being busy at times. The parking issue needs some fixing, but the trail itself is well worth it.

The first part of this hike is difficult due to the steep switch backs, then you get into the green and it is beautiful at every turn! It is steep in some areas with lose rocks, so go slow, and coming down was a bit scary. However I was doing this packing my 6 month old, so it’s possible. I’m a moderately in-shape person. Would not recommend this for young kids. It took my friend and I about 2.5 hours out and back while staying at the falls for a while.

Beautiful trail! Lots of trees to shade the trail. The creek runs along the trail the whole way. Great for dogs. The waterfall was the perfect end to this trail. If you want to go to the shoreline trail from there it is not accessible for dogs, it’s a steep rock climb up from the waterfall.

This is my favorite trail to hike. You get a little splash of everything on this trail; wild flowers, streams, woods, meadows, wild animals, and a lake. My family loves to pack a lunch and relax at the lake for the afternoon. I also often see people camping up here in the summer.

a lot of people go real early is best

This hike was so much fun! My 4 year old loved it! Just a reminder if you bring things with you take it back. I saw a little bit of trash in the springs and that was not cool y’all we can do better

Beautiful scenery! Great hike!

One of my favorite hikes to do. Easy, and the hot springs make the hike well worth it. Sometimes it can be pretty crowded so be aware there may be limited availability for room in the springs. Beautiful scenery along the way. Enjoy!

Great hike. Decently difficult, so come prepared. Really pretty views of the valley. Busier than I expected, but not too bad. I'll definitely be going again!

Great hike, amazing waterfall at the end but my shoes did get wet to see it.

Amazing hike! Beautiful the whole way to the water fall. I would definitely rate it as hard though. A lot of uphill scrambling over rocks and cliff like areas.

So pretty! Go early in the morning on weekday and you’ll have no problems with too many people.

This is a great hike with a gorgeous waterfall! Very popular with hikers.

Hiked with family. Did not get to the top, but beautiful canyon with shade and stream!

Amazing hike! Hiked it today 5/12 (first time) in the fog rain and it was wet and wonderful!!! A bit challenging to find, but worth it. (Stay to the left and watch for log crossings and rock cairns when you’re not sure of the trail.)

Great hike. We got to see an awesome sunset on the way back down.

Awesome ride with great views. Soil drains well but try and stay off after a heavy rain or until snow is melted. Please remember this is a Dirt Bike-accessible trail hikers be polite and let riders pass. Riders keep the speeds down!
