Chose a wonderful day to hike this trail. 6 hour round trip. Amazing experience

Great trail! You drive this one though, so don't be confused and think it's a hike. You can pull off and do conventional hikes around it if you'd like as well. This is a one way road through a more secluded area of the park. If you go around 6 o'clock, it's a great opportunity to see bears. We saw 5 on our trip. Just drive slow and be on the lookout and you're bound to see something neat! Great for an end of the day activity once you're tired from hiking all day.

Favorite trail in the park!

Really enjoyable hike. The waterfall and vegetation is amazing when the water is flowing. I seen an abundance of mushrooms as well! Just an amazing little spot.

This was a great and challenging hike, totally worth the trip. It is moderately challenging, so be prepared. Bring lots of water and if you have hiking poles, I recommend bringing them too. The ascent took me about 3 hrs (with breaks) and descent 2.5hrs. Definitely stop at the lodge for lunch. They have bagged lunches with unlimited coffee/hot chocolate refills and a place to fill up your water bottle. If you're in decent shape, this hike won't be as difficult for you as many people commented. It's challenging, but don't let that deter you. The views were spectacular! After the lodge keep going the additional .3 miles to reach the lookout point.
Also, be sure to arrive early, the parking lot fills up quickly. The entire trail was 11miles R/T.2
