Very nice hike. We thought it was were the gravel/ dirt went around but it is when you go up and turn right and see a sign for Mary's fall 2.5 miles and Mt. Rosa 5 miles. it has a good incline and pretty creek to follow for cool breezes.
We really enjoyed this hike. Great views and the frozen waterfall was incredible. Very excited to continue onto rosa peak next time. Ran out of sunlight to attempt the summit today
Highly recommend this hike!!
I greatly enjoyed this hike. It was not too difficult but at the same time was also challenging. Very relaxed and would do it again. The falls were still frozen in mid March but the rivers weren't.
A beautiful and enjoyable hike, easy after The Incline two days earlier, and far less trafficked. Falls, though, were still frozen, a bit anticlimactic.
Starts off easy as pie, then gets fairly difficult near the top. As someone who is just getting into hiking at altitude (after acclimating for a few months) this one was tough enough to get me winded more than a few times, but also felt lots of accomplishment once I hit the top. My dog loved it too, but there are lots of dogs off leash. The waterfall is still frozen as of today, but the views were really nice.
Trail has great elevation gains towards the end.
The trail markers are inaccurate with distance, but a great trail overall.
Falls were frozen but still a pretty hike near stream most of the way.
