Amazing hike, beautiful view would be really simple with no snow. Still so much snow be prepared to step and fall in and have no trail to follow.

Great hike. Falls were amazing! Trail was good, a few muddy spots and water running over trail.

This trail was mostly great all around. Didn’t run into any snow, but some flooding over trail. The only problem I have with the trail is that to get down to the road, the first .6 ish miles are a strep downhill. This isn’t bad until you’re at the end of 9 miles and then have to go up. Other than that, the view is worth it!! BEAUTIFUL!

amazing waterfall, lots of water coming down the trail right now but you can get around it. easy hike as far as I was concerned

Many of the descriptions people have posted are incorrect. This is a great hike with several potential destinations. The first are a series of falls about 2 miles in. This area is spectacular and fairly busy. Many hikers stop here. At about 3 miles you cross the creek on either a sketchy log or by wading. From there you have several miles of flat thick forest to hike through. At around 7 miles you reach a series of bedrock creek cascades that are gorgeous. This is a possible camp location as well. Once you progress beyond this, there are fairly frequent flat and relatively open areas if you want to camp below Bryan lake. At about 8 miles, you hit Bryan lake. When we did this trail in 2015, there were quite a few logs over the trail in the upper reaches. I don’t know if they have been cleared since.

This is a beautiful hike. There’s a variety of terrain and I would rate it as moderate. Lots of shady area right along the creek. It climbs at a constant pace so definitely a nice moderate workout. This is one of my favorites.

Beautiful scenery! Snow the last 1.5 miles.

Deadfall. Depressing views.

Totally love this hike. By far my favorite..

Beautiful hike with opportunities to get in the creek. Just be careful driving to the trailhead, still a lot of ice and snow!

Love this trail for an any time hike. there was about 6 inches of snow this time and lots of opportunity for beautiful pictures. We went about 3 miles in and hiked out in the dark. Trailer is well marked with no issue finding our way out.

loved the hike. great views.

Beautiful trail, RD to trail head was in great shape. The trail is icey, I suggest micro spikes. If your GPS tries to take you to Jackson LN it's incorrect.

Roads solid ice, narrow, with cliffs had to bale on it today. Will return in the spring.

My friends and I enjoyed this hike very much. It offers a nice incline on the way up to the waterfall, and then the decline back down isn't too bad. Didn't see too many people for a Saturday. The waterfall is such a reward. You can hike up to the top of it. If you want after you hike to the top you can cross the water hike down a bit, and see the waterfall fully; but, there is no well marked trail to do this.

37 degrees, snow on the trail the last half mile or so.. great hike!!

Easy and relaxing 6.7 mile out and back for me and my 11 year old. Several side trails along the way to get on the creek. A downside was the numerous powder dirt sections due to dryness and horse traffic.

I'm not quite sure where the lake is - certainly not at the turn around to make it a 6.3 mile hike. Really scenic with great rock outcroppings for lounging. Guess I'll keep trying to find the lake!

A very peaceful and relaxing trail with amazing scenery. The bridge offers excellent views of the creek and there are plenty of areas along the trail to stop for a picnic or photo opportunities. My dog thoroughly enjoyed it as well! Not busy at all even for a Friday afternoon.

great trail, well maintained, constant elevation change. i recommend doing the full loop, plus take the trail headed west at the upper lake. Beautiful views all around.

This is such a fun, exciting hike. The trail was overgrown with several fallen trees on the trail here and there, but the views are well worth it; Lake Bryan is spectacular.

Beautiful!!! Trail gets fairly rocky but worth the effort! Be sure and go all the way to the top!

This is our favorite hike in the Bitteroot. We hiked in with our 6 year old twins who did great. The header says 6.6 miles but it is 9.6 to the lake. We camped for 2 days at the lake. The hike however is no joke. It was 10.8 miles to our campsite. There were numerous trees down from what I would assume was a microburst along the trail, most of them (20 or more VERY large trees) at about 7.5 miles in. We had to literally climb on top of them, walk across them, which were laying in a zig-zag pattern until we picked up the trail again. (On the return trip, volunteers from the Sierra Club and Selway-Bitteroot Frank Church foundation had cleared all of the trees from the trail. Big thank you to them. Was very impressive). Once you pass the last bridge at about 8.5 miles, the real incline begins. The switchbacks are in the open so it's pretty hot in the middle of the day. The next mile to the lake is tough and right before you get to the lake there are about 70 steps that are spaced to accommodate a horses stride so carrying a heavy pack will make it brutal. It is worth it as you reach the spillway at the top and wading though the cold water feels amazing. The time at the lake was awesome and the weather was perfect. Fishing was great as well. We were able to swim in the lake when it warmed up on the 2nd day and the landscape is just incredible. This was our 5th hike to the lake and the first with our kids who wanted to stay longer. Next time we will stay a few more days. Highly recommend this hike. Recommend going during the week because there are limited camp sites for a large group like ours. (9 of us with our friends and family).

Absolutely amazing view. Good for kids and those in shape up to 65. The entire way is switchbacks making the climb easy to scale. Overall , very easy and extremely rewarding hike.
