Loved this trail! I couldn’t really find the end point since it connects with Crow Pass trail but it was absolutely breathtaking! Definitely recommend hiking shoes so you don’t roll your ankles on the loose rock. Bring a lunch and you can have a picnic with a gorgeous view! Any of the paths lead to the same point so don’t be discouraged!

Good trail, varied terrain with a bit of shale and rock slides over the trail overall it was a beautiful hike. It took us about 1.5 hours to get to the falls.
