Beautiful but heavy traffic and limited parking. Definitely an early hike.
Nice hike with beautiful scenery!
Nice easy and also available during winter!
Great hike! Great views Cascade Lake. There stone steps going and out. Not much elevation change. This hike is great for the entire family. Bring a picnic to have at the falls.
Great hike when you want to get away but don't have time or energy to hike for miles.
This is the first trail I've hiked in the mountains so it felt moderate to me. It starts out with a dirt path and then gets rocky the rest of the way. The views were stunning as you have cascade lake to your left and the mountain to your right. I hiked this trail in Columbus Day weekend so the waterfall was just like a stream but still, it was quite peaceful to hear the water running and have yet another beautiful view of the lake in front of the waterfall.
Did this trail with our 2and 4 yo. While the first part is really easy going the kids have to listen to you in the second part. It gets rocky and here and there some "dangerous" (for kids) parts.
All in all a nice family trail if the kids have quite safe hiking skills
Beautiful views with little effort. Went on an afternoon that promised rain and snow showers so crowds were non-existent. Excellent views of Lake Tahoe and Cascade Lake down below. Lovely granite trails. Good for athletic dogs; not so good for small, older dogs. Magical during an afternoon snow shower!
Beautiful views! I would say it's a bit more aggressive of a hike than moderate. Lots of climbing.. Unfortunately the falls were a mere trickle due to the drought but still worth the time!
