Snoeshoed from the road closure to the falls and back. 7.8 miles round trip. Great workout in wet snow.

Nice sunny day off work so I took advantage of the opportunity. I tried twice back in Nov of 2017 to get up to the lakes but there was too much deep snow. Today was a different story. Arrived at the trailhead at 0700, strapped on the snowshoes, and took off. It was 18 degrees out and calm. The trail has about a 4-5 foot of packed down snow. We used snowshoes all the way up to the lakes but really didn't need to. From lake #2 to #3 it's very steep and the traction from the snowshoes was helpful. We took them off at lake #3 and walked down slowly kicking in steps and that worked out much better. In these conditions a pair of Kathoola microspikes or K10 crampons would of worked better and been much lighter. But it's your call. It took us 2:40 to get from trailhead to lake #3 due to the good snow for travel.

Family friendly hike with rushing river views and, of course, the beautiful Twin falls. If you don't mind getting a bit muddy, then this makes for a great January outing.

I gave this hike five start for two reasons. One is the variety as it can be a beginner of an advanced snow shoe. If you dont make the third lake you can take away two stars. The third lake is basically a straight up journey for those who are advanced and and comfortable being in sketchy and steep terrain in the snow. We hit the hike on a cloudy day and Kendall Peak was visible at the third lake just below the cloud cover. The second lake is much easier to reach and where most should turn around.

Nice to be in the snow out of the rain today. Great trail for a beginner, immediate or advanced. Can make this trail as long or as short as you want. Snowshoes not needed but snow was coming down hard so used the as we got further in. Always beautiful in he Mountains. Lots of well behaved pups of leash ( : including mine.

Very nice trail with lots of snow as you get close to the top

Fairly well trafficked trail by families, dogs and hikers of all ages,shape and size. It’s a rocky well maintained trail that’s a bit muddy. But the mud is to be expected on a January rainy day. If you forget your Discover pass you can buy a day pass at the trail head with cash or at the Ace Hardware that’s 10mins before the trail.

Great hike on a surprisingly warm day (almost 60) on a muddy and busy trail. The river and falls are beautiful, with plenty of opportunities to take in the scenery and some awesome pictures. I continued on to the trail head for the Mt. Washington trail to hit a geocache, overall, this is a great hike and one I will definitely return to in the summer.

Great little trail, some of it was a little washed out and in need of repair, but really a great hike. Beautiful falls.

Easy hike with a couple inclines thrown in. No snow, and heavily forested for most of the hike. Dog friendly!

Hiked this yesterday. Snow was perfect. No need for snowshoes.

Great trail! Very beautiful. Relatively easy!

Great hike!! Abundant falls. Dogs are allowed on leash.

Trail is well cared for, beautiful. But more of a moderate hike for newer hikers on the cardiovascular side. :) worth it though

Wasn't too crowded. Good hike with gorgeous views!
