Good day for bear sightings. Mother and 2 cubs as soon as we entered at Thornton Gap and separately on the trail were one adult and one cub. Very pretty scenery especially the cascades.

Great hike, nice length. Beautiful trail with multiple falls along the way, great for dogs to splash around in. We started off down the fire road for a counterclockwise trip around the loop, which meant we saved the biggest waterfall for last.

Great trail. Heads up: 1.5 mi in (taking the trail counter clockwise) there is a nest of yellowjackets. Other folks ahead of us were stung too.

Great passage through the woods with lots of time spent near running water. Some of the changes in elevation are not so gradual, so it's also a good workout.
