Short, nature walk. Views are okay for a short walk. Not something you would do twice. Trail does not get up close to falls for a good picture unless you climb make your way closer in mud.

In both the ethnic personal care market as well as the mainstream personal care market, there's a lot left to be desired. Belif Moisturizing Eye Bomb By now, you probably have a good idea why it is not recommended to use most mainstream personal care products for sensitive skin of color. Not to worry, natural personal care products are the answer

I did this on 7/2/2018. Really nice trail. Parking lot available and 2 unisex private bathrooms, not flushing toilets. Hike is easy and shady. If you stop walking, the mosquitoes will get you. Keep on walking. The path down to the waterfall is moderate. It's probably the "difficult" part of the trail. Great place for pics. Didn't get into the water because it was freezing cold. Have fun and be safe!

Here from Virginia on vacation. Enjoyed this short hike. Love hiking to waterfalls.

nicely kept trail. I didn't realize it passes righ next to residential land. a bit of a buzz kill. But I went in the fall and all the trees and bushes were bare and it might hide the houses when the trees fill out. It has some rolling hills but it has some nice pull puts with views to rest your legs.

Good trail.

Beautiful easy trail. The surrounding peaks, river, pond and waterfalls were breathtaking. Be aware....or should I say bear aware....we saw multiple black bears along the trail. We also saw many large brown bear tracks and another hiker we ran into confirmed he saw a brown mama & cub. Don’t let that scare you away though. We’ll definitely be back.

I am not sure about easy trail, that first inclined was quite a start but yes, it was pretty easy to find. We only did the overlook that was 1.5 miles round trip and took 37 minutes total. The falls are far, the other trail is likely to get you a closer look.

Super nice! Even saw a black bear!

Very pretty view of the waterfall at the end. Took my dog with me, definitely dog friendly as there were a lot of other dogs there too. $5 to park

Short and sweet, the creek trail (lower route) is better then the overlook in my opinion because you get closer to the base of the falls. Overall it was packed with families and is a nice time.

This was a busy trail. Pretty easy with a little bit of incline. The mosquitoes will eat you alive if you don't where bug spray. We did quite a few trails while in Alaska and this seemed to be the one where all the mosquitoes liked to live. haha. Damp from the river/waterfall and full of people to eat. ;)

It’s a pretty mellow trail to smoke a doobie on.

Even though the forecast called for rain, it was still breath taking. The clouds just kept rolling along. We had sun until we got above the tree line. Coming down we were just walking thru the clouds, and you couldn’t see any surrounding mountains. It was beautiful regardless. Such a great hike!

Love this for jogging and views. I’m a beginning trail runner but I feel safe and run it two or three times to get the distance in. Just enough small hills to make it a bit of a challenge. Also, do take the side trail at the end to the base of the falls for a bit better view. Worth it.

Great trail, even for a beginner like me. But be ready for the mosquito swarms.

Not “easy”. Some steep inclines and it never ends.
Very thick wooded trail made me very cautious.
At the clearing before the trail head is a party/dump spot, lots of broken bottles, trash, needles. Do not let kids and dogs run around there

It’s uphill right at the beginning of the trail but not too bad. The waterfall is smaller than I expected. The hike up to the balcony view and down to the creek are easy and short. Lots of mosquitoes!

Great for kids!

Beautiful day. Not too hot. The trail follows the twin peaks trail but once you get to the second bench is where the trail starts to get to the peak. It was a challenge since we had 50lb packs on for training. We also did some impromptu self rescue training since there was still a pretty good snow patch off to the side of the trail about 4900 elevation. And at around that elevation we dropped our packs and headed up to the peak. There was some scrambling to get there but not bad at all.

There is no trail called pepper peak. It looks like it was an old trail but according to the trail map this hike does not exist.

Not a beginner trail- was a lot of uphill hiking - It is hard to determine where the trail ends unless you have the app - we hiked 2 miles in and went to the left up the summer trail - there is a beautiful viewpoint there.

Great little hike. A bit crowded, but it was a beautiful day. Some hills, so may be challenging for young children, but if you don’t go to the bottom of the falls it’s a very quick easy hike.

My 4 yr old walked the whole time. Lots of up and down but trail is very well maintained and not muddy at all. I would not take my dad (he’s 70) but my 2 yr old walked most of it too and my 5 month old golden doodle LOVED the water and trees. Easy enough for babies, interesting enough for teens. My 3 teens enjoyed the activities as well.

Good hike, uphill most of the way there. The trail doesn’t really end, and by the time I checked back with the app I had overshot what it said was the end by over a mile. And that was totally worth it!! Amazing views. But wasn’t expecting to hike that long.

We walked this trail today with our 5 and 10 y.o.s and they loved it! We also had our mid sized lab with us and she did great! There is some incline during this hike so be prepared for that. Muddy in some areas but it’s doable in sneaks or hiking shoes. It was our first time there and we really enjoyed it.

Waterfall was so amazing! Lots of people around great for kids. Great hike for beginners.

Easy trail, very busy. Waterfall was okay though not spectacular. There was a guy in a wetsuit hanging out in the falls when we went. Brrrr.

Easy trail, could be considered more of a walk than a hike. Saw many strollers so you can tell that it's more of a walk. Nice wide trail, maintained well

Need to pay park fee of $5 but it's definitely worth it to maintain the quality of trail.

Great hike, had some spots that were steeper than expected. Carried my almost 3 year old, so it felt more intense. Made it 1.5 miles in and turned back, it was a great workout. My 5 year old hiked it too, and did great!
