Trail marker is off the north side of Pinecrest lake. Pleasant trail through forest and rocky switchbacks at high elevation. Opens up into river, wading pool and waterfall area. Great views of Pinecrest Lake.

Amazing trail. Views from the baths at sunset were spectacular. The bouldering and scrambling made the trail fun and challenging. Only ran into a couple people on the trail. Great option for seclusion in an amazing landscape once you leave the lake shore.

Awesome once you get away from the campground!

This hike is NOT kid friendly (at least for our experience, ages 7 and younger) as stated above. Toward the end of the hike, it's very inclined and has a lot of large rocks that you'd have to climb in order to get to the baths. I would recommend going to the right side trail of the lake (not crossing the dam) because it's shorter and isn't as strenuous. I definitely recommend very well gripped hiking shoes for the inclined rock climbing part toward the end of the trail to the baths.

Gorgeous views of the lake and waterfalls. Once you get to the end of the trail by Cleos Bath, it's all rock climbing until you reach the top. Good hiking shoes will be important for this. One of my hardest hikes but very rewarding once you reach the top! Definitely recommend.

Great hike! A little tougher than expected, but if a paper pusher like me can do it so can you. Be prepared to do some rock climbing the closer you get to Cleo's Bath. Just follow the arrows, they'll guide you.

Such a good hike and the waterfalls at the end were so fun! Great place to be on hot days!

This was a great hike, the four of us range in age of 60 to 70's, it was a challenge but we worked together and made it up the wall and down and as of 8/22/17 the water was cold and two water falls running.
