Great beginner’s hike! We went with a 2 and 3 year old who did pretty well but we would probably leave them home next time.

Incredibly easy hike. Pair with Sleeping Beauty, Black, Buck, Erebus, etc for a more productive day. A group of about 100 (literally) tourists were going up as I came down the other day. Very rude and as loud as ever. The summit is not much to write home about and is quite small. Dont know how they would all even fit up there, lol. Nonetheless an easy hike, check out the falls, climb the mountain, back in 2 hours.

Nice short hike with dog - nice views of the lake, not too steep on a hot day.
