Great trail, with some awesome viewpoints. Not that hard to do. Water falls, wild goats.

It was pretty foggy, and still was an awesome trail. Highly recommend to keep going a bit after the crow pass sing, there is a great viewpoint on the glacier about 10-15 min walk from there.

We did this hike this morning, in the rain. There is still a lot of snow on the trail in places. It was slow going. There were some other hikers with overnight gear, intent on spending a few days up there. It looked like they were in a for a cool night. I'd give this trail a couple more weeks of sunshine, before expecting a relatively dry trail.

Even though it had rained for 3 weeks prior and during the 2 days we were out, I had an amazing experience. Equal parts incredible natural beauty, abject terror, and pain. Much of the Eagle River side trail was washed out, bridges missing, thick mud, etc. We survived it all and gained a great sense of accomplishment.

Great hike with amazing views. The only thing difficult about this hike is the distance and the number of water crossings where you are likely to get your feet wet.
