Really enjoyed this hike. The lake is beautiful. Not hard at all. Can't wait to go back next week.

Beautiful. One of my favorite hikes so far. The crowds tend to thin out after the lower falls. Bring plenty of water and good shoes. It's rocky and really steep.

I'm giving this a 4 star because it doesn't follow the river very closely. The last bit up to the upper falls I would say is very difficult but my lungs are also not used to the elevation. The big water fall is very beautiful though! My husband and I are in our mid-30's and pretty fit, we did the 5 miles in a little under 2 1/2 hours.
