Hike was great, unfortunately we missed the turn to begin our ascent from the Exit 34C parking lot towards Lafayette and got on the falling waters trail which can get you to both peaks. Also note that the latter portion of the descent, according to the map, will put you on a trail that has been closed. From the look of it, probably a year or so. So take care. Overall good hike for the buck.

Excellent hike with amazing views. Expect a big effort up either falling waters or old bridal. Park service rangers recommended falling waters up but old bridal down is long and jarring. Green leaf Hut staff said this was their first weekend being open. Small 20 foot snow section on falling water trail was the only snow/ice remaining. No bugs.
