Beautiful trail to hike. Some tight spots and if you turn you climb up a pretty steep foothill. Would do it again!

Just went with our dog. plenty of foot traffic and a bit muddy but still a lovely walk.

Awesome trail! The scenery is beautiful and great for training tough terrain.

Great trail for a quick hike. Not too muddy and light traffic during the week.

Great views and such. Went during the end of the fire season (September time) so air quality wasn't pristine but it was still good enough. The tricky part is getting to the actual falls as their isn't a direct guidance to get there as we didn't find the falls but crossed 3 streams trying to. Maybe next ime

It is beautiful out there, but there is not much to see beyond the bridge.

Nice little hike. Peaceful. Quiet day on the trail for a Saturday afternoon. Saw a few deer. Lightly packed snow on trail. No Snowshoes or spikes needed

Very muddy and a lot of people, but beautiful view.

Very pretty trail. Not the prettiest hike in this area though. But the Wind Cave is phenomenal! The photos here don't provide it justice. Amazingly tall entrance. Lots of room inside to climb around and explore. Be sure to bring headlamps to allow unhindered exploring. I'm not sure why this trail is rated as difficult. My 4 year old niece managed the hike up all on her own.

very big with multiple paths to take, with a great very when you reach the top. Going back for nire:)

Beautiful trail with great flow for trail running and beautiful reveals of big views of the treasure valley. Highly recommended!

Incredible view and smells

Meh. It was okay. Very loud from the freeway. I probably won’t be doing this one again.

Our yearly trek! Waterfall canyon is also definitely worth the extra push. If you're planning to make it an overnighter the far side of the upper lake is the prime territory. Been up here 4 years running and have always seen wildlife. Last time a moose stumbled upon us and gave us all a good jump. I don't know who was more surprised us or her.

Great late fall hike. No one else on the trail on a cold, sleety day! Saw several deer just hanging out, too!!!

I first did this 4 months ago and returned to check out this area with some snow cover. Unfortunately it was too warm and the trail was more mud than snow. Hike was still very nice. Solitude, peace and quiet, great forest and meadow make this stroll very pleasant.

Nice trail. Good views from the summit.

Nice trip! Really nice trip! Hiked counter clockwise to toxaway lake the first day. The second day we took a day trip up sand mountain pass, over to Imogene and Edith lakes. Got back to camp faster than expected so fished on toxaway all afternoon and spent our second night there. Day 3 headed to Alice lake and wow! There are two sites that are towards the end of the lake and they are worth getting there early! Amazing! Swam for a while then fished all evening. We all caught nice size Brooke’s. Day 4 out was a bit longer than expected but a nice finish to the trip

Went in late August and weather was pretty chilly, mid 30s at night

I absolutely love the beginning of the hike, the way the trees fall over the straights like an abandoned blvd in a movie. The hike itself Seel little direct sunlight and that keeps temps perfect. Did a quick hike this November with the intent of camping but limited spaces available, would have gone to the upper lake but friends backed out. Will try again!

Great trail conditions! Beautiful views.

this is definitely a hike that is accessible in the winter as long as it's not crazy snowy. The trail was easy to follow and trafficked.

Great trail, midweek best for less traffic.. Love it!

love to take dogs with on this trail
great view of Boise

A good trail for a constant chill uphill run. As stated before views aren’t that great, but it’s pretty good for a medium length run. Even at a pretty relaxed pace you should be able to complete in 4 hours. Couple downed trees on the trail and the last 2 miles is snowy. Doesn’t seem like you need to worry about mountain bikers shuttling the trail this time of year.

The trail starts out with a creek crossing on an old road. As the trail progresses, so does the brush and top growth. Mid-way through horse riders would have issues. A steep climb. No real “views” along the way.

Great trail with beautiful views of Boise and the Treasure Valley. Nice combination of flats and ascents.

This trail was a combination of beautiful views and good steady incline for a solid work out. I will definitely hike this again!
