Great family friendly trail for our group aged 5-11. Short 20 min walk into waterfall where we had lunch and played round the stream a bit. Able to scramble up creek to base of waterfall too. Easy hike, more like an interpretative trail, that allowed plenty of time for appreciating nature and reading signs along the path.

A short hike that has a little bit of elevation gain, but both look outs are pretty. This is dog friendly and the trails were in fairly good shape.

A very well maintained trail that gives you views from the top and bottom of the falls. The “loop” trail will take you to the bottom and then you can go up to the overlook from there and then it’ll bring you back to the start. This is dog friendly and kid friendly. It’s more of a walk than a hike, but it was definitely worth it. There are a couple of picnic tables below the parking lot/pull off and there is a drop toilet there too. The campground a couple miles towards the highway has a bathroom as well.

Short scenic trail, would recommend. The upper right loop is definitely cooler than the lower left loop.

Beautiful hike! Was well worth the hike back up and to see the upper falls part. Will be hiking this one again!!

Nice short hike through redwood & pine forest with nice falls.

The first miles were snow free and then patches of snow. The least 3/4 mile was all snow. The lakes were snow free.

This was a fun hike but was a no go on the slides. :( Once you turn right off the main road there will be a “Y”, go to the left. The road in is long with many, of what WE called, “speed bumps”. We saw a bumper on the side of the road so this is definitely an SUV, truck, or high clearance vehicle road for sure. Once to the “parking area” you walk through concrete barriers. The hike in is easy and pretty. Trail is easy to follow. We saw lots of elk poo. You’ll cross about 4 or 5 little shallow creeks, which have been pretty secured by stepping stones or logs. Then you’ll walk up on the big creek which got to be about waist deep in spots. It was moving pretty good so we took it slow and steady. (2 adults and 3 teenagers) BEWARE: ITS ICE COLD! Once across the creek you continue the trail up to the slides which will be on your left. Due to the water flow being SOOOOOO fast and SOOOO much we weren’t able to slide. Which was a super bummer as we drove about 5.5 hours to do this. It was just moving wayyyy too fast and there was no “pool” to catch us. Just a huge rock wall further down the slide which would be certain death. We heard later in the summer would be better and they were right. (The water fall further up was pretty though) Maybe August would be better.

Great trail, but lots of trees have happen across it making it more difficult to traverse

Made it about halfway when we hit snow. Lost the trail so tried following the creek. Ran into a couple hikers on their way out from an overnight camp at the lake. They reported the lake was frozen and they had bushwacked their way in yesterday when they lost the trail and couldn't figure out where to cross the fast running creek which seemed a bit treacherous to try to cross. We turned back about 3.5 miles in right before the ascent to the saddle. The snow was getting pretty Slippy and we did not want to risk the uphill hike without yak tracks or snowshoes. For being such a challenge with no trail and all that snow, we still ran into 2 other groups heading in that had hiked it before so figured they could figure out where to go. Weather was good otherwise and we still enjoyed the hike, the scenery and the other hikers. Saw a cow moose on our way out. I plan to return when I can actually find the trail...so I can see the lakes and the views from the summit.(6/20/20)

Did this hike 6/20/2020. Have to take the road up to get to the trail head due to a gate. The trail is lost in snow maybe 2 miles of following it so we traversed through the snow and found a snow bridge to cross the creek. After that we pretty much went straight up the mountain until we got to the ridge and could see the lake. Would not recommend doing that without poles or something to keep you from sliding down as it was very steep. We slid back down and it was pretty dangerous, but fun. Would not recommend if you are not in shape and/or dont have the gear.

Unfortunately, I was unable to complete this hike. I reached the campsite and Canyon Creek at mile 7, but could go no further. There are no bridges for this crossing, but Canyon Creek is about waist-high and moving very quickly. As I was hiking alone, I did not want to try to make the cross myself. I would definitely wait until July to make this crossing - I just felt it was too dangerous to try. The Forest Service website only mentions that this a river crossing with no bridge, but gives zero warning about the height and speed of Canyon Creek this time of year.

Encountered deep snow....several feet.... from mile 2.3 all the way to the lookout tower. Lake was almost entirely frozen over. Made the arduous trek through the spring condition snow only falling through a dozen times or so. I would do it again in a heartbeat. The views from the top are some of the best in the Selkirks. All in all an epic day!

Found the trail and enjoyed the hike. Wasn’t able to get to the slides due to the last river crossing. It was deep, swift, and extremely cold. Imagine mid-late summer is a better time to go when water levels are lower.

Lots of very large trees down the first 1.5 miles then gets better toward top. Encountered hardpack and slushy snow almost the entire route but that was expected. Saw no evidence of foot traffic in the snow at all so figured we were among the first to go past Queen Lake. Significant tree clearing is necessary before the trail is passable without climbing and scrambling. Rated it a 4 because enjoyed the adventure and views at top did not disappoint. Continued on to Bussard Peak and made it a 9.6 mile hike.

Easy hike. Great waterfalls with a huge amount of water flow. Fallen trees have been cleared from trail. You will get somewhat wet from the spray from the falls. Mosquitoes.

Love this easy trail by the wildlife refuge. A family favorite!

This is a MUST-SEE! You’ll have to drive on some dirt to get there, but if my Hyundai Elantra can do it than so can yours! It is a well-traveled, easy to navigate path and is short and not that steep. Both the lower and upper falls are easy to navigate and you will want to see both. You will get slightly damp but that’s the point, right? ;) Went on a Friday mid-day and only saw two other families. Also- the whole private property thing wasn’t an issue at all. Just be extra respectful (as you should anyways with Mother Nature).
