Easy to hike. Well built trails. Nice waterfalls. Leave extra time to do Mt. Lincoln.

This is an incredible hike, I did the loop so I saw the waterfalls and walked along the ridge. It is awesome. Check out my write up along with some other things to look out for.

Great hike!! It took us about 6 hours and 40 minutes round trip using the Falling Waters trail.

I was really cold and windy on the summit but it was totally worth it.

Definitely going back in a few weeks.

This trail is fantastic!! My favorite hike so far, the view from up top is amazing!! The 1st third of the trail is easy with nice water falls, the middle of the trail is moderate and the last part of the trail is very fun / difficult!! My friend while climbing called it the never ending staircase. It was a perfect day that we climbed 10/11/16 and I met some really cool people along the way who I ended up having dinner and drinks with after the hike!!
