Starts off with a nice forest accent and turns into a mountain climb. Lots of slippery parts and big stretches to climb. You’ll hold onto lots of roots and trees up and down. There’s a good view point halfway for some lunch and to re-evaluate if you really want to go to the top haha. Lots of nice waterfalls along the way. The final accent there’s a couple 10 foot rock faces you have to scale with the aid of the rope there. I’ve never used poles as I figured I’d never need them, but man my knees could have used them on the way down. Took about 2.15 hours up with no real breaks and 2 down with no breaks. Spent maybe 10 minutes at the top. Even with bug spray you can’t avoid the bugs. Bring a head net to enjoy the view

Gorgeous hike up Evans Peak today. Yes it's true, so so many little flies at the top, they don't bite but love being in your mouth, ears and eyes.. Despite them it was so lovely. Very muddy as well but nothing too extreme, just watch out for the slippery roots!

Minus one star for the swarm of mosquitoes on the top, mosquitoes net highly recommended. Parking lot was full when we got there around 8am and had to park on the side of the road. No snow, trail very wet and slippery with lots of roots. The only obstacle was going up/down a 3m vertical, rock surface. Helpful to have rope and roots to hold on to.

Fun, but steep hike at some parts! Remember to start the trail where it says 'View Point Trail' and look for signs and markers to make sure you're going up the right path. Super muddy, slippery and wet due to heavy rainfall from the previous day. Bring bug spray and go on a clear day for a rewarding view.

it's a great trail but it should be named Evan's Grind. every single step you take is up. It's consistently steep all the way up and the scramble is risky but like all tough trails it's worth it at the end. it's a good challenge but not too long. took me a bit less than 4 hours with basically no stopping. bugs were terrible at the top right now.

Beautiful trail, but we only got up part way as the creek below the waterfall was impassible. Fast current and we wouldn't have been able to cross without getting completely soaked. We had to turn back after about 45 minutes and did the Lower Falls Trail instead.

Bugs at the top made it difficult to enjoy the rewarding view after the steep slog most of the way up. You need a head net to spend anytime at the summit.

great hike! it is very steep and challenging trail. lots of mud, slippery roots. The view is worth it! I would recommend hiking poles to assist the descent and a bug headnet for the pesky bugs no snow

Super Muddy, the park needs to groom the trail better given the number of users. Good times tho

What a climb! This hike is a great workout, and I’d recommend it to moderate to experienced hikers. It’s very muddy, so be prepared. Bug spray is a must. There is an area with two ropes, very crowded here, and unfortunately people were not too respectful about alternating flows. At the top the views are spectacular!! Well worth the aching legs. Be careful on the way down, it’s very slippery.
