Beautiful, just beautiful! One of the prettiest hikes I’ve done. The mountains are so close and Slick Rock Falls was awesome. The three mile hike to the falls was not a very hard trek. I highly recommend!

Great hike but tough! Did 5 miles out and back to the first stream crossing. Very petty and a tough 1500’ of gain and then loss!

Fantastic Spring Hike. There was still some snow fields on the hillsides which filled the creek and added a wild sound effect to the downhill rushing water. The trail is easy but gradually up. A good destination is the waterfall. My GPS had the out and back hike at 6.8 miles, with 1,000 feet of elevation gain. You walk up a canyon into the mountains. Do this hike, you won't be sorry.

Winter hike up here, not too much snow right now - didn’t require snowshoes. It was, however, really icy. Trekking poles work great to keep you on two feet! The hike is very nice, not too hard but you can work up a bit of a sweat too with a faster pace! Most of the trail follows the river closely, the waterfall is lovely, and the evidence of avalanches really makes an impression; tons of downed trees and debris from who-knows-when.

We hiked to the waterfall in winter on a beautiful clear day. This hike is amazing! The mountains Loom up right next to you, unexpectedly and gloriously close. I highly recommend this Trail in the winter because the ice that forms on top of the running water is so very pretty.

We have hiked all over the U.S. but this trail has to be one of our most favorite. We even saw a momma bear and her cub.
