Perfect hike! Meandering trail. Lots of ponds, rivers, flowers, moss, trees. I was smiling the whole time. First 1/4 really easy trek, next 1/2 somewhat challenging uphill with rocks, then last 1/4 easy again. No real 'peak' with a view, but still an amazing hike. Would do again.

Moderate. Beautiful. My companions who wore sneakers weren't happy, but I was fine with boots. One steep climb. Ends at Taylor Lodge.

Nice on a rainy day, the falls were particulary great.

Good hike for older kids. My 5 years old girl struggled a little bit. Well marked. The view of the lake and the waterfall (Small one) was very nice.

Lovely hike out & back with young families. Our 4-year old could have technically hiked the whole thing, but his pace would have kept us out longer than we had time for. We especially had fun exploring the rock cave and climbing up the ladder on the "rough" trail. Taylor lodge was the perfect spot to contain mobile kiddos while we ate a snack before descending. With a 4-year old, 15month old and 6 month old plus pup it took 4 hours round trip, snack included. Def would recommend!
