Perfect day. Trail is dry. If you’re hiking with littles there isn’t much or no space for them run without worrying about them falling on or down rocks.

Easy trail first time on it, the snow pack made it a little difficult in some areas, did well on time and had some beautiful views even with the snow:)

Fresh powder on the trail today. Beautiful scenery and a nice little waterfall at the end. Trail was a little difficult a few times because of the snowpack, generally pretty easy.

This time of year it was very slushy and icy but beautiful! Recommend ice cleats for a less hectic hike. Honestly, we thought it was more fun without the ice cleats because we didn’t care if we slipped and fell. Waterfall was pretty and overall easy hike. Took us a little less than one hour each way.

Great short hike with a stunning, simple waterfall. The ground is still slick with snow, slush and mud. Bring spikes. It’s quite crowded on weekends.
