This trail was SO beautiful today! The snow was perfect on the trees and mountains and good to walk through. Lots of people snow shoeing and with touring skis. I had hike spikes and poles and that worked great. The falls at the end was amazing and so worth traversing up the rocks at the top to get inside the little cave. The road to the trailhead is closed due to snow but it doesn’t make it that much longer.

I brought our family from Virginia, an 18,16,and 13 year old and my own kids 11,9,7,and 5 year old. Good snow, icy at the top. Beautiful at the top, good for all ages.

Great hike today. Some snow, no moose today. Saw 2 different 3point buck and plenty of doe. Took 1.5hrs to reach beaver dam, snowed on us throughout the hike. Very slick in some areas, trekking poles helped.

Hiked 11/5 and went all the way up to mt O’Sullivan. Didn’t need crimpons at all unless you go up past the meadow. If you go past the upper meadow tread cautiously as there are thin layers of snow on the rocks and it can be slippery. Way up high snowshoes helped as there was 2 feet plus of snow. Gorgeous this time of year.

A nice gentle slope and walk through the woods until the last 150m.

You have to walk across the stream, skipping over stones and logs. The last 35m is a scrambling rock climb, pretty treacherous, so unless you have good climbing skills and suitable footwear, don’t even try it. If it’s been freezing it’s a no-go as the rocks are quite smooth and impossible to scale. Nice cave with waterfall at the top following the climb.

Nice walk but couldn’t get inside cave to see the photos posted.

Beautiful hike! Very well marked and a good challenge! It was steep but not too hard!

I didn’t find the views really worth the effort on this one. It’s a short punishing hike for sure.

Went on a Sunday, late October. Many climbers and hikers. Made it to overlook and returned before dark. Lovely hike.

I absolutely love the beauty of this hike! I went in mid October and the leaves were stunning. I didn't make it to the top on account of the time, but plan on it very soon.

Hike October 28, 2018 It was a bit muddy and aspens have already fallen. A little wet as well. Crowed by 2:30 pm No bathroom facilities. Falls were worth the mud and wet feet. Go take this hike!

It was a very gorgeous trail this time of year (fall)

Pretty sure couple of the ratings on here didn’t go to top. Hiking into the canyon for first mile is a trail, not a hike. :)

However, the next 1 1/2 miles are super steep. Bring at least 70 ounces water if in summer. Also in spring and summer this is SUPER overgrown at top. More overgrown than most hunting trails I go on. This is way better in fall just FYI.

Such a stunning view. Well worth it, very steep. Add 2+ miles since the road is closed and you have to walk to the donut falls parking lot. Quite a bit of snow for the second half!

Went up with snowshoes but didn’t really need them. Awesome winter hike!

Went up today. Not sure why it’s rated hard, I would rate it moderate. Used crampons when I got above the bridge. Very nice hike, this trail would be great in the summer with all the shade. Very beautiful when you get up around 7500 feet.

It was definitely difficult for me, though I did it roundtrip in 3 hrs and 30 mins. Trail was well marked and very nice! The view was beautiful with snow on the mountains! Trail does have a bit of snow when you start getting higher up.

Snow, ice, and mud, but a great hike! Somehow I didn't make it to the falls, the trail just ended at the river. I'll go back in the summer and see where I went wrong. The road is closed so you have to hike in from the main road.

Great easy hike for anyone, especially for the kids.There was snow and ice on most of the trail this morning. Make sure to take gloves that’s something I was regretting not having with me.

Super easy, super crowded. Snow shoe this one. It’s not bad though. Falls are pretty cool.

The problem with Donut Falls and the reason for my 2 Star Rating is because it was as crowded as when you go to Disney Land waiting on your favorite ride on a Saturday and admission to Disney Land is Free for the first time ever......

Although I am exaggerating Donuts Falls was way too crowded for my tastes!

This trail was amazing. We loved the section of white birch trees in the fall it’s beautiful!! This trail offered a number of different sceneries all beautiful in there own way. All uphill and downhill with a few little breaks in between! Overall awesome trail!!
