We only went 2 miles up. The sign to start the trail is not clear, no mention of the falls. There is no shade the first 1.5 miles. We were looking for the falls. we finally noticed a trickle on the MT and not sure if that was it. Definitely not the water falls I was expecting. It started to get nice after 1.5 miles so maybe the rest is better. The fire really made it barren those first 1.5 miles.

Great day hike. Pleasant trail with some beautiful views. Went all the way to the Meadows and back.
