Awesome .... had the trail to ourselves it seemed! Snow packed and a great hike for the family. And the kids loved the chance to play in snow.

Super short, easy, and beautiful! The trail goes right along the creek up to the falls. You are supposed to have a pass to park, just FYI.

Short hike but absolutely stunning. Kids were able to explore and were actually paying attention to the scenery. Follows along the creek with falls and easy access to dip your feet in. Ends at a fall - perfect for a family picture. Definitely worth the trip and mirror lake trail is just up the road and easily accessed for an additional hike.

Nice walk, pretty falls, a lot of down trees and fun to walk across them.... just to many people for my liking.

This is a great easy hike for families. We brought our 5 yr old who has DMD and can't walk long distance. There were several families with young kids as well. There is a cold wind coming off the falls if you stand right at the bottom that is really cool.

It definitely was the perfect hike just to spend a lite amount of time at. The trail is short but, beautiful by the creek from the waterfall. Also, a lot of cool trees that make excellent bridges.

Super easy, picturesque, and fun hike with kids. Breeze from the waterfall at the end is invigorating. Best to go when crowds are at a minimum (weekday mornings) when you have the chance to take in the trail all to yourself.

Easy walk in and out only one area where you had to navigate downed trees and washout.
