The color of the lake will mesmerize you, such a beautiful sea green color!

So I listened to Elaine's advise from a previous review and I am so glad I did. GO UP the cliff and over to the falls, not the other way around. There is a lot of loose dirt and rocks and now that peak foliage has past the ground is covered with leaves making foot placement is unreliable. Plus you'll get the hard climb out of the way first and have an easy descent. Gorgeous views, not too packed this time of year, took me 3.5 hours but I hike slow and take lots of pictures :)

Great hike! Starts off pretty flat for the first half and the path is mostly dirt with covered leaves/pine needles. The second half turns to mostly rock (mix of loose rock and large slabs) and gets pretty steep at parts, more so on the way down. A couple "false" summits because of the great views, but you certainly know when your at the top with great 360 views. We hiked on a Thursday afternoon and only saw about 6 people.

Apple Watch 8.5 in and out. Very dry and unseasonably warm October day, slightly hazy. An absolute favorite hike, reasonable steepness on ascent, some wet places. Use careful footing on descent. Trail on top not well marked, move carefully on ledges. Astounding views. Can’t wait to go back.

Unplanned and Unknown about this trail, stared as a small walk but it felt to be harder. Decided not to return did complete and the view and experience is great. Really worth.
Suggestions: Carry some energy bars and water to have on its way. Having the walking sticks is nice to have.
I did it during fall and loved the fall experience

great hike. easy steady climb with no real steep sections until a short burst at the very end. was windy and foggy at top on the day i went but worth the climb.

I've hiked this 3 times. It's challenging for me but the view at the top is ALWAYS worth it!!

Fantastic hike. Endless scenery with multiple falls. Do not do this hike if you are out of shape or inexperienced. I’ve done similar length hikes in places like Zion but this one pushed my limits. I’m 55 and in relatively good shape but this hike tested my physical stamina. My 27 y/o son had no problem. Lots of rocks up and down. Tough on the feet and legs. But the hike along the ridge trail makes it all worth it. 10 hours to complete with plenty of rest stops. I know others have done it in 6-8 hours. Give yourself plenty of time to avoid hiking down in the dark. Pack well, snacks, lots of water, you can refill at greenleaf hut on the way down. I’ve heard the winds can be very strong along the ridge but we got lucky and had perfect day. Even so you will need extra layers along the ridge.

great hike short but sweet. not too difficult

This was amazing. Trail was fairly easy but the lake at the end was gorgeous. Perk was having bathrooms and a place
To relax before turning around
