What a great hike and the last .7 miles is the longest stretch....pretty much straight uphill. The falls at the top though are totally worrh the huffing and puffing....just keep putting one foot in front of the other.

Amazing hike. Has a beautiful lake and a river. The last mile is straight up and intensely hard. Didn't think I was going to make it. The waterfalls are totally worth it!

I did the lower falls trail with a good friend a several years ago and I absolutely enjoyed every second! Once you pass the lake and cross the mountain stream bridge, it turns into a shaded and beautiful canopy of trees sheltering the trail all the way up to the lower half of the falls. Absolutely gorgeous. There are flat trail parts and very vertical hiking parts, I personally am a huge fan of vertical/steep hikes, it's a satisfying challenge. Can't wait to do it again! I'm glad I found this app because I had forgotten the name of this trail and I have been trying to figure out what trail this was for years!

Loved this hike super beautiful. but the incline is intense and at some points you where having to take a step almost to the height of my knee. But i definitely would recommend it.

to the lake is relatively easy. After that it gets more challenging specifically the last mile. I saw many people at the lower fall so it's definitely doable. slow and steady wins the race. last mile is steep climb with lots of boulders and rocks.
