Amazing trail. incredible views. only reason I gave this a 4 star is because of the biting flies that got both us and the dogs. We must have pulled 10 flies off of each dog.

Took our two dogs. Stopped at the top of the falls for the dogs to splash. The trail was more narrow and rocky than expected but beautiful and the falls were spectacular. Started hike at 2:30. Saw probably 8 pairs of people on the trail not crowded.

Started off by 8 AM and the trail was lightly trafficked. But it was crowded on the way back by 9:30 AM so we really enjoyed our time early. Best part was at the top, where you can explore close to the falls and rushing stream. Also, the same trailhead has Granite Lake so plan to spend a 4+ hours and do both.

Nice sorter hike with awesome views. At the end you can roam around by the falls. Great place to sit and enjoy an afternoon.

Fun hike. Not difficult if you take it at your own pace. Once you're at the falls small children and pets need to be carefully supervised. Lots of fast moving water that's easy to get close to. Not trying to discourage anyone and I wouldn't say it's super dangerous but the falls are high and the water is fast- just keep your wits about you and you'll be fine.

Beautiful with so much water running down. Glad we did it on a week day, Tuesday, it was busy enough for us
