The first couple hundred feet are super slippery and sketchy right now (1/12/21), but if you can get past it, it's a good one. Some real steep spots, but nothing my yaktraks couldn't handle since it was snow not ice. The frozen waterfall is super majestic, made it worth the steep climb to get there!

As of 1/8/21, the trail was very steep (especially the last mile), icy, and easy to follow because of the snow. I highly recommend spikes. I did not do the loop. The Triumph trail part of the loop has a sign warning that it is steep and narrow. The waterfalls and "tubs" were gorgeous.

Very pretty. Northern loop named triumph is indeed very steep and narrow. I would not do it in the winter again.

Love this hike. It’s not called Hell’s Hole campground for nothing. Not easy but worth it

HikingGreat!No shade

Trail was difficult. Hard to say fun. It is very steep the whole way up, and will take you much longer than you'd think a 2.6 mile hike should. I think our time up was about 1 hour and all 3 of us are experienced hikers. The end is very rewarding, once you get into the pocket of pines the temp drops down quickly and it gets very pretty. This is not a hike to do midday in the summer, you want to go early in the morning. It's grueling and there's little shade.

HikingGreat!

It’s very steep, the third waterfall is the best one but you gotta know how to get there and it’s hard to describe. Don’t do it in the middle of a summer day.

If doing this rather steep route, I'd advise taking the southern track when it splits into a loop. Continuing on past Hell Hole campground are the two best waterfalls, definitely worth the extra effort. I'd advise against taking the northern track on the loop. This connector to the Triumph trail should be called the Triumph the Insult Comic Dog route. It's a comical insult to call it a trail, and dangerous to boot. Much of the route is on a steep, very slippery slope only inches from a significant drop-off into Davis Creek. I had to navigate sections of this route as low to the ground as possible, sliding on my butt to avoid falling off the cliff. Avoid unless you're an adrenaline junkie.

This trail is just constantly steep, with some part that are very overgrown. The 5 waterfalls, especially the last one, make the hike worth it. This is now one of my favorite hikes.

Beautifully green surroundings once you get a mile or so in. Trail is steep in spots, but accessing the five waterfalls is fairly straight forward. The higher you get on the trail, the smaller it becomes. I tried to get up to Bountiful peak, but the trail I chose to take was so overgrown that most of the time I had to consult my gps to confirm I was actually on (or near) the trail. I ran out of time and so had to turn around and head down. I’ll try a different path next time...
