Loved this hike! It wasn’t hot this time of year and we didn’t see a single other person during the entire hike. Some signs had broken and were on the ground, but we had a map and it was easy to figure out where to go. The falls were pretty light this time of year, but we did see a herd of elk while on the Loowit trail (after we left the Truman trail). We also heard rockfalls inside the crater. A ranger told us after we got back that this often happens due to micro quakes under the lava dome.
