Great hike! Easy to follow trail with rocky sections. Crossing the waterfall requires some rock-hopping and has slick rocks. Beautiful overlook of Cascade Lake. Recommended to people of all ages.

Great hike! Definitely some areas where you begin to wonder where the trail is though. But it was a fun out and back hike that led to some amazing views. We had a great time scrambling around the waterfall area and trying to get the best pics. A little crowded, but it was also the middle of a Sunday afternoon. Definitely recommended!

Pretty cool trail which ends in multiple water falls across granite rocks. There are multiple pools you can put your feet in. I brought my dog and she did a great job navigating. Make sure you bring sun cover as it's hot out and plenty of water or bring a filter. It was a pretty easy trail but gets a bit in marked at the end and takes time to find way back to trail when leaving as not really marked but eventually can be picked up.

Very fun hike. The falls were not raging this time of year (September) but this allowed hikers to find their own spot along the tributaries to play in the water or eat lunch.
