Spectacular views! A lot of snow on the trail this past weekend. I was disappointed there was no water going over the falls though. Looking forward to tackling it in the spring again!

Really diverse hike, lots of different types of scenery along the way! I would rate this hike more as moderate. The main trail all is fairly steady with a small incline. The final ascent is where it gets tougher, but not impossible. Unfortunately the waterfall area and river was completely dried up so we will definitely be doing this again next summer. Took us about 4.5 hours. We didn't get to do the extra portion at the top because the wind and rain was far too strong. Highly recommend!

One of the best hikes for diversity along the way. River crossings, waterfalls, meadows, and ridge views from the top! Lots of fossils near the falls before the final ridge ascent.

Awesome day hike, took us about 5 1/2 hours including a lunch break at the top. Pretty windy at the top so I'd recommend a good raincoat. We took a dip in the little waterfall on the way down, beautiful views.

We took our 5 kids on this hike ages 8-17. Round trip was 6 hrs. Lots of quick breaks climbing up. We Lunched right before the pass. 1/2 went all the way to pass while the rest hunkered down in the pines to wait. The trek up to the pass is steep and the rocks are a bit slippery but the views were amazing! Beautiful flowers, stream, waterfall along the way. All the time being surrounded by mountain views. During the 6 hrs we saw only 5 other hikers. A very peaceful hike.

Lots of variety on this hike. Top part gets pretty steep with an easy scramble up a scree slope. Best part is the waterfall and pool mid mountain. Nice way to cool off on a hot day.
