This was a beautiful trail. Straight up hill most of the time but still nice. It zigzags through some wooded areas so there is shade. Other parts plateau and go through meadows of flowers. Once you reach the top you can ride the Gondola back down for free.

We saw a bear cross the road in front of us on the drive up to the trail head. Trail is easy and has great views

This trail gets a little too busy for my personal taste, but the falls are beautiful.

Great trail, lots of bear markings so be watchful! Didn't make it quite to the end as weather was turning ominous. Would highly recommend it!

Was a nice, easy hike. Was a beautiful day to enjoy with our 2 Boxer dogs. And bonus of a leash free lake that they got to enjoy.

Beautiful hike. It is a solid moderate hike with incline most of the way in as one would expect climbing to the top of the falls. It took us 2 hours in and a little more than an hour down. Trail is nicely maintained although boulders near top are more challenging. Wonderful variety of pine, aspen, and lush green foliage. Bring water. We picnicked after the hike near the lower falls.

Easy going trail, a couple of small creek crossings but nothing big. Walking along the ridge is pleasant with the constant breeze. Bugs not a problem this late in the season.

Turn-off from 40 is open as of 8/12/17. FS road: recommend high clearance vehicle or 4WD if muddy. Good hike.

Great hike to the upper falls. Get there early, it was very busy on the way down.

Beautiful but more of a overlook then a trail. Good for kids and seniors.
