The falls are really cool! While we were there PG + E was running water from one of the upper lakes down into Spaulding, which is a spectacle in of itself; huge cataracts of water going down a steep hill at the beginning of the hike.

Pro tip: if you want a shorter hike, just turn around where Grouse Ridge Trail comes in. The bridge over to the lakes is kinda neat, but the lakes themselves aren't much for swimming (they're shallower and lilly-pad filled).
