AMAZING VIEWS!!! Beautiful waterfall. The trail to get to the waterfall is hard to find. On the map it looks like you are supposed to not cross the bridge and turn left before hand but unless you want to become part mountain goat I wouldn’t suggest this. Cross the bridge (the one without handrails) and take and IMMEDIATE LEFT. Some bushwhacking required but just follow the river the waterfall is well worth it. There are other ways but that was the best we found.

The way is great, but after the bridge is hard to go and see the fall, very difficult and lot of snow covering it, we could not aprecciate it

The falls / river are gushing. Gorgeous with all the new green. Snow up top is slushy, slidy, and unpredictable.

It was a popular trail, with many people after 10 am. There was a lot of snow once you got close to the falls, but mostly just mud at the beginning of the trail. Snow was pretty icy and compact, but the falls were beautiful to see! Only took about half an hour to get there, and it was a walk more than a hike.

Initially only wanted to do Gloria Falls then decided to make our way up to White Pine. Although there was snow, it was padded down enough to make to the top with only my keens and no spikes! We turned around with a 0.7 mile left because we neglected to bring food since we weren’t planning on going 8 miles. If we hadn’t turned around because of hunger, we could’ve totally made it. It is beautiful right now and we had the whole second half of the hike to ourselves, even on Memorial Day!

Lots of snow, so we turned back about 2.5 miles in.

Super fun hike, but def an adventure. The snow is slushy so it’s easy to take a wrong step and get stuck. The falls are beautiful right now.
