First, parking can be hard when there are many people using the trail. There is not an actual parking area, other than the side of the road and in front of the property where the trailhead starts. Might look like you're going into someone's property but the Alltrails map takes you straight to the trailhead! The hike itself was gorgeous. It was a little challenging as the incline was steep in some portions. The view was worth it though!

Love this trail! Emptier than Mary Jane falls but still easy! Did 2 hours round trip w/ a bit of relaxing at the end. Once you get to the river bed follow it up until you see the trail again! Will do again soon

It was a fun hike! Went up the yellow trail which took about 1hr and 25min and then took the blue trail back down which took 45min-1hr which is not bad. Sort of rocky and steep but it was great. People were friendly! Saw some dogs and some people brought their kids also.

I would say this is an easy-moderate trail. Only difficulty is there are a few areas that are not well marked, so AllTrails was a must. We went on a Wednesday and arrived at 10:30 & got the last spot in the actual parking area. We left around 2 and there were cars parked all the way back along the road leading up. Definitely a well loved trail, which unfortunately includes some trash left behind. Would recommend, easy to spend quite a bit of time hanging out once you get to the falls

A little over 6 hours to the summit and back to the Mount Tallac trailhead (10 miles there and back). Easy to lose the trail with the snow and the steep rock climb to get to the top of the the southern peak. The All Trails app was quite helpful to direct and navigate when lost off trail and fortunately had phone reception the whole way which was helpful. Only saw one other person at the top.

Not too crowded, beautiful views.

Fun trail. Hailed a bit and got a little chilly for a bit at the top. I’ve seen maps that show the trail continuing past the summit and going down to city creek, but I couldn’t for the life of me find any. I’m not sure if I made it to the very top as I couldn’t see the trail continuing and a portion in front of me on the ridge looked higher. I don’t think I could’ve climbed up there

Did this in July of 2019, and had a heavy snow year. So we only made it to first lake. Trail was beautiful, but very steep. It was kind of like Disney land of Colorado during the high season, so very crowded, but definitely still enjoyable. Cars tend to park tight down the side of the road from the trail head, which was also very crowded and busy. The hike gives you amazing views of the quandary peak and you reach the alpine tundra quickly.

Perfect day. It was about 80 degrees. We started hiking at 5 p.m. and came down at sunset. It was beautiful.

Beautiful view of the mountain. A great mix of sunny open trail and shaded winding forest. The trail was rocky in places and we all lost our footing at one point or another. A great trail for kids, my 10, 8 and 4 year old walked the whole loop hardly complaining.

Really enjoyed this trail! I did this trail on (5/24/20) and it was pretty crowded. The views at the top of Cascade were incredible and even exceeded my expectations. Trail conditions were great on Cascade but I would recommend microspikes for Porter unless you're cool with slippin' and slidin' and tip-toeing around it.

This was a fantastic hike! Loved every second of it. I did this a few days ago on memorial day (5/25/20). My microspikes were very beneficial due to the remaining ice and snow pack. Coming down was actually harder because the snow pack softened as the day progressed and I fell threw it multiple times knee deep, and even once up to my waist. Lots of water and mud due to the melting snow and ice. I completed the hike in about 9 hours. Less experienced hikers may need to allow themselves more time than that. I did not have an issue with black flies or bugs during the whole hike except for when i made it back to the parking lot of the trailhead where the Mosquito/nats were intense lol

Beautiful hike. I wore spikes and was easily able to do the trail. People without them were really struggling though. Snowshoes are not needed.

Nicely marked trail with a good amount of variety due to the stream crossings. Took shoes off for one stream crossing, but others could be a little tricky. Lots of deep mud in parts made navigating rocks on trails a challenge as well. Myself and another pair of hikers were not able to make it past about 6.2 miles up unfortunately. The trail was one giant quickly melting ice slick, with the trail caving in in parts. Felt way too dangerous to continue, alas. Bummer to do 12 miles of hiking for no view, but that’s how it goes. It was still a lovely day. Saw fewer than 10 people the entire day.

Good day hike today on our favorite trail. Fairly dry with some areas of running water and some mud, but not enough to make it a bad hike. Went as far as you can without getting wet from joining stream. About 4 miles in and back

No snow at the top. Parts of the trail are overgrown but not terrible. Nobody was on the trail after the turnoff from the pipeline trail and it is steep after that point. Hiked at 5pm and had a decent amount of shade with some exposure to sun towards the top. Views are stunning. Saw a snake on the way down (closer to the summit); not a rattler but still put a kick in my step for the descent.

Did 5/16. Some packed snow at the end of the trail but easy to cross over. The path around the lake is still covered in snow. Beautiful view.
