While not too challenging, and some stellar views... my friends and I went the second weekend in June and found that the snowpack was still deep enough that we couldn't find the trail after about 2 miles and had to turn around without seeing the falls.

Uphill the whole way but it's with it!! I went counter clockwise and had to stop quite a few times. The falls and the surrounding forest are beautiful !

Going clockwise is definitely the way to go. Less intense uphill. Great 5 mile hike.

Nice trail. 2 hours and 5 miles round trip at moderate pace. Head clockwise from the upper trailhead to avoid the more intense uphill.

Rather crowded trail. Steep narrow upper part of the loop crossed several downhill skiing runs. The other half of the loop was much nicer. Sahale falls rather unremarkable.
