Really good trail. Very well marked. Lot of uneven terrain with rocks and roots. Gorgeous waterfalls on the trail. Summit view was nothing spectacular. Light snow/icing around summit, no need for anything beyond proper footwear though. Fun, easy hike!

My second time this year.... with GMC friends this time. All rainy, no view but GREAT to see the awesome cascades again. If it were summer we probably would have just jumped into one of the pools. Easy trail, only steep in the middle part that parallels the brook.

Well marked. Steep before cascade but worth it. Didn’t go to top due to time.

HikingGreat!

Only thing to add is to second the fact that the view from the top is only good, not amazing. Beautiful scenery on the way up but still tough

I enjoy this trail. It’s right near my house so I sometimes just hike to the falls. First mile is flat then super steep for 1.5 miles. The top has a small overlook where you can see Rutland on a clear day. I love the evergreen forest, moss and ferns near the top as well. So beautiful.

HikingGreat!

like others have pointed out. this starts off very flat. its really serene and beautiful then. after crossing a small stream and taking a few steps up, it just gets steep and keeps getting steep, about 1600 feet gain in 2.5 miles.dont expect any views at the top. we went when it hadn't rained much so there was not much water in the river or falls.

Gentle and sloping at the beginning and then steeper in the middle. Little waterfall, nice smelling pines, nice fall hike, an hour and a half up and roughly the same down, didn’t see a lot of people on a weekend trip

This is an awesome, really sweet trail! I would rate it as difficult rather than moderate though. It’s unforgiving and goes straight up for the majority of the hike. Beautiful view at the top vista, although the summit is a bit disappointing. It only takes about 2 hours but I injured myself coming down so it took a lot longer. Would definitely go again!

Great hike with just enough challenge to get a leg burn and the heart rate up. Would recommend hiking poles as the rocks can be slippery. The vista is a great place to have lunch. On the way up we didn’t see many people (we left at 11) but we saw a few on the way down. It took us just under 3 hours, excluding a break for lunch. We will definitely be back!

Great trail! Starts off easy then gets super steep midway until the vista. DEFINITELY wear long pants!!!! The trail is pretty overgrown and thin on top of it being very very buggy! Bring enough water and a snack for the view. We brought our pup, very dog friendly!

Great in and out trail ! Starts mellow and follows a drainage/ River most of the way up the the hike I’d recommend 3 hours min and bug spray a must. snack at the top. Waterfall on the right 2/3 of the way up. Nice breeze and view of Vegas from the top... which is nice because you will be working sweating at little when you arrive. Bring plenty of water. You can park at the trail head. Trail is well maintained easily marked. Highly recommend great half day!

Very nice trail and a lots to see! It starts out pretty easy and works it’s way gradually to being a little steep. Definitely would recommend doing this trail.

A bit muddy at the bottom. good deal going up but worth it when you come to the awesome Cascade on the Right. Was a little disappointed with the view to the East. View spur to the SW gives a good overlook of Rutland.

So, as a beginner, I found this hike to be pretty challenging. The blue markings need to be redone (especially near the lookout). I ended up bushwhacking a bit to get to the lookout because the trail wasn’t clearly marked. Snow at the top made it a bit icy and slippery. A few streams to cross made it interesting. The boards used to cross over muddy areas definitely need to be replaced. The waterfall was beautiful. Quite a few steep areas and a lot of rocks to cross over.

Fun trail. I could see it getting overgrown in summer but fun to follow route. Lots of jumping on rocks and over logs. Beautiful cascades. Runnable first first half mile. Took us 2 hours at a fairly fast pace and 5 min to enjoy Rutland overlook from top. Going to be a lot more muddy once things thaw out. Still fairly frozen.

Great hike on April 22. The majority of the trail was still snow covered but we were okay with just hiking boots. Up and back took us 2 hours and 20 minutes including eating lunch at the vista point. We saw one other person on the trail. The vista had a beautiful overlook of the town and mountains, although the trees definitely block the view some.The cascades featured mid-trail were lovely as well. We recommend!

Great trail even with some snow. Decent overlook, great little waterfalls. A lot of brook crossing and blow downs to swing over.
