We did the marked road trail on the way up. snow cover wide trail was well trampled by other travelers but we were the only ones on the way up and back. When you arrive there's a T and you go right to the waterfall. Visited the falls, which were beautiful half-frozen, then took the other trail to the left to hit Hyalite Trail. Took a left onto a heavily traveled trail which began like a frozen stream this day. This single track trail was fantastic and took us to a signpost indicating a connector to the Grotto Falls Trailhead. This connector trail had not been traveled since the snow had fallen a few days earlier and was absolutely a fantastic five star trek. On this day, crunching snow, sunshine and amazing views. At some points you can see Grotto Falls trail below you. It comes out to the left of the trailhead and is unmarked. Fantastic simple high value hike!
