We went at the beginning of Summer with snow still on majority of the trail. What was 5 miles seemed like more. Waterfall looked nice but also surrounded by snow.

Great trail, but narrow and very popular. Waterfall at the end makes it worth dealing with busy trail.

Gorgeous views with a great workout! You get cliffside and forest scenery on this great hike.

Great hike with kids (ours were ages 8 and up) and dog. Not much shade till the end of the hike. Getting over to the hike area was a challenge we had to cross a 8 inch thick cement wall once we were over the rest was easy.
