Wow! Surrounded by beautiful green tree covered mountains. Hike follows along a river much of the way. Amazing waterfall views. Even able to get close enough to get wet from all the mist. So fun!

We did this hike on July 9th. The talks are all clear with the exception of the Van trump park area (which is a must see if you do this trail) which was easily navigable, and the end of the Comet Falls trail had a decent snow field on the last downhill area to the upper falls. It could be tricky to get down without slipping. The foot bridges through out the trail are so neat and they offer over the views of the river below and the falls above. This trail ensures an amazing view the whole time rather than a destination end view. I recommend hitting that trail early for a parking spot and the plus side of not having too many people on the trail. Last note, we felt the elevation gain was tolerable and spread out well through the hike.

Gorgeous hike, 3 different falls to see! With our kids (10 and 12) and they were dazzled by the waterfalls. Round trip 4.33 miles, 1239 elevation change, 2 hours 20 minutes.
