Hikes this today 5/28/18. My FitBit watch said it was over 13 miles round trip, but I did go off trail a few times to navigate over and around the snow. It was pretty strenuous due to the amount of snow still on the ground. This would’ve probably been a beautiful hike, but a large portion of the forest has been burned out due to the fires in 2017. There are a lot of burnt trees covering the trail and my hiking pack, as well as the clothes I wore, both had black streaks on them from rubbing on the trees as I went around them. I managed to make it to the falls using the gps feature on AllTrails and The Hiking Project apps. I did fall a few times because the snow sucked my leg in up to mid thigh. Overall, it was a good workout, but I think you can probably find a lot better waterfall elsewhere. Happy exploring.
