Easy walk with an amazing view of the falls. Enjoy!

Beautiful hike into a gorge. The path is a bit uneven and steep going down if you go counter clockwise into the loop. The pools and river at the bottom are gorgeous and very cold. A nice reward after a hot hike down to the bottom. Coming up is a pretty standard switch back to get back to the top. I’d recommend driving down to the second parking lot it’s right at the loop unless you wanted to do the extra walking (about 1 like extra) if you park at the upper parking lot. Takes about 2-3 hours if you want to stop for lots of pictures and swim at the bottom.

What a beautiful hike, but longer than 16.4. I decided to do this with a few friends who are all in good shape. We got on the sheepcreek trail just before 10 am, the trail up was really good, just a couple of trees blown down. At the high point of the hike, you can get service with Verizon, not sure about other cell providers. On the way down to palisades, the trail does become hard to find/follow in a few places. The combination of no trail and having to detour to avoid snow (bring good hiking boots, not tennis shoes) led to this hike being closer to 20 miles for my group. We got to our cars at the palisades trailhead around 10:20 pm. If you want to do this hike, I would highly recommend it. If you are comfortable with up to 25 miles in a day, go ahead and do it in one go, but I would break it up into two days if I were to do it again.

Beautiful and not difficult. There are some steep areas and rocks than can cause you to roll an ankle, but otherwise it feels like you are in a whole other world. Wear pants unless your ready for some scratched up legs and watch out for the stinging nettle, not a fun plant to rub on. A must do hike while in southern Idaho. We ended up in the middle of a down pour and hail storm so we didn't take a dip in the pool as we were already drenched. My 5 year old described it best, it was like being in a jungle with out leaving our state.

We missed the lake!!! Took trail 138 as all the online and hiking books suggested. We ended up climbing almost up to the trailhead 4.6miles then came back. We were able to look over the lone lake but there were no waterfalls as we expected. We will try again!! We talked to a couple and a group of three people. They were also thinking to get to the lake on the same trail. There were NO signs so, please don't make the same mistake as we did.... The hike itself was a very good workout! Steep steep hill and rocky parts. There was some snow close to the top and muddy. It will be challenging for a small dog and children. **There was a bathroom at the parking spot with toilet papers but No access to the water.

Great trail! Uphill and somewhat challenging all the way back to the first lake, though totally worth it.

Super easy stroll to the falls. Mostly glad. We added this on the the end of our hike to Bridal Veil Falls. Access is off the main trail to Bridal Veil.

We hiked this trail on July 4th and found it to be in crowded and very moderate/easy. First miles are through pine forest then flower meadows with a beautiful view of the snow capped mountains. We encountered lots of butterflies and 2 antelope who crossed the trail. We started at 9:00. Trail is shaded sporadically except for the first/last 1/2 mile. Scrambled over the stream at 2 points: both times we found downed trees to cross. Besides the stream crossing, this is an easy hike. One steep 10 minute climb then mostly all flat. We started up the falls but found the vegetation to be too this for our liking. Found a nice spot by the lower falls to have a snack then headed back. For a longer hike, add Lady Face Falls on the hike back:access is off the main trail out and back. Overall was 11 miles.

Beautiful! It is easy walk to the falls from the parking lot. I would suggest following the path to the left to see the different viewpoints without the crowds.

Great hike! Definitely moderate trail as it's fairly steep in several sections. Very worth it though. Beautiful all the way up and the lake is gorgeous and peaceful.

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.

Great Trail for a warm summer day. Plenty of shade on this heavily trafficked and well-maintained Trail. Lots of interpretive signs about Pulaski and the 1910 fire. Some insects but no mosquitoes.
