One of the best hikes I have done - As mentioned by other reviewers this hike has three distinct parts - all amazing. The first 5 miles or so is along a river with 20+ waterfalls and cascades. The middle 5 miles is a climb across alpine tundra to the summit where you cross snowfields and recent volcanic landscape. The final 5 miles is a beautiful descent into a green canyon with stunning views across mountains and valleys.
