Down then up... I ran this trail and WOW it is a long incline on the way back! Super beautiful though and family friendly!

One of our faves, kind of a hidden secret. Lots of loops so you can change it up and get some different scenery. There’s an easy trail through beautiful old growth forest, and a few offshoots that will lead you to the river beach. Easy trail with just a few steep hills here and there. During quarantine, people have been respectful of space.

It starts by the gift shop parking lot (good luck finding parking). You just walk along the side walk for as long as you want. To me the views were kind of the same as in other vista points along the lake. You get a nice view of wizard island.

Went on 7/4 mid day. There was a good chunk of people traveling along the trails. This is my favorite trail and I feel it provided the best view of the lake from different levels. The water seems to get more beautiful the closer you get to it. Great place for pictures. The trail has plenty of rest spots and there’s a little dock at the bottom where you can relax and dip your feet in the water (the water is freezing!). Unfortunately there’s not much of a shore for like in Lake Tahoe so many people stayed at the end of the trail or found a spot on top of the large rocks near the edge of the water. Totally worth the hike.

This was a challenging but great hike! Easy to find on the way in. There was nowhere to park close to the trailhead so we parked across the street and walked to the large bridge that took us up a paved hill and to the trail. Pretty overgrown in parts, and the closer you get to the falls, it is fairly muddy (which makes sense- but just be sure to wear shoes that are waterproof and or can handle mud) :) The caves were really awesome, and we did the portion to the lower falls and didn’t have any cave that we couldn’t see through completely! The ropes were an added level of difficulty to the hike which I loved! Easier on the way up than the way down in terms of using the rope, but it will definitely have you catching your breath on the way up. It is strenuous and the trail is rough but it was awesome.

Beautiful hike, even when clouds hide much of the view at the top! I caught glimpses of Hood and Jefferson while I sat at the summit, but all the green hillsides below are still a great sight. When you reach what seems like a fork about halfway through (a little before the boulder field), the main trail goes straight but be sure to take a quick scramble up the rock face to the right for a great view of Jefferson. As others have said, follow the signs leading to the trailhead rather than following GPS. Once you hit the gravel road, the drive to the trailhead is 6.5 more miles, but the road isn’t too rough.

The trail was closed today for maintenance. Bummed it wasn’t open. Maybe tomorrow or later this week.

Short hike. It’s rocky so wear appropriate footwear. Not recommended for dogs.

nice walk with some elevation loss and gain to help get the heart rate up.

Glorious. Dogs are fine on here. I day hiked and made it up to camp lake before turning back. Snow cover increased and was running out of daylight. Looks like to get over the last incline you’d need to climb straight up a steep snowbank that will likely be there another week or more. Road in could stand to be bladed. It’ll make sure your fillings are in tight.

Absolutely gorgeous! The road down is rather difficult around a mile in, would recommend a car that can handle rough terrain. I went on a drizzly day to avoid the crowds and still was blown away. The ropes along the trail help with ascending and descending. If you're up for it, I would recommend a quick dip in the water before heading back up the trail. A little muddy in some areas and rocky as you approach the waterfall.

We had to bike to the start due to the East rim road closure, but trail was in great condition sans all but 2 others. Chipmunks at top we’re hungry!

This trail was awesome. Perfect for me and my 6 year old who are new to the walking/hiking thing. A great beginner!

I have to say that this was probably one of the best trails I have been on so far. the views are great and the trail is an absolute blast! the ropes are not to terrible and are actually kind of fun. I was terrified of the first cave and ended up making friends with a few folks who helped me get through. the waterfalls are beautiful! some spots where pretty thick with mud so wear boots unless you don't mind wet feet.
