Great trail, but I wouldn’t call it easy! We hiked it with 12 people, ranging in age from 4-71, all in relatively good health. The 4-year-old spent most of the time on someone’s back. The beginning is steep and very rocky, one reason I don’t think it should be considered an easy hike. Views of the valley are spectacular. It was beautiful and green at this time of year with lots of wild flowers. We enjoyed the walk around the reservoir. Next time we will try the waterfall trail that goes off of it. Will definitely do this one again!

beautiful hike, go early, it got super busy on the way out. recommend you start 7am at the latest. Tried to go to upper, next on the list.

Super beautiful hike, it’s so green right now and lots of wild flowers! The first bit is sunny switchbacks but after the lake there is more shade. The last part of the hike is steep and rocky and quite the workout, so plan to work for the view. The waterfall is awesome. Saw a rather large rattle snake there today so watch your step.

We had planned on an easy 2,5 mile hike and it was beautiful but this was anything but easy. The non stop uphill over rocks was grueling. Constant step ups. Took us 4 hours because we got off the path a bit. The waterfall was beautiful and felt so good after the long trek up. I wish markings were better about where your going to and what to expect. Glad we had no kids with us for this one.

Trail gets a bit lost in the multiple tributaries from snow melt (at the meadow) but we found it after 5-10 minutes. The boulder field, as mentioned, has snow but it's passable (though caution is advised because it's easy to punch through). I'd recommend giving it a week. Also, if you can help it, never go on a Saturday. At least a billion people heading up as we ran down.

I started this hike at 7:30, and got to the Waterfall in less than an hour. It was very crowded on the way down, and took me 2 hours to get down.

Super awesome hike. The creek is raging right now, and the trail stays close to it most of the way. Both upper and lower falls were flowing heavy too - beautiful stuff. The meadow was serene with little tributaries running all over the place - probably my favorite part of the hike. As of today, 5/29/20, snow starts on the trail about 4.5 miles up but it is totally manageable in trail runners. Once you hit the boulder field it gets a little sketchy with deceptively unstable patches of snow - caution here is advised. Pretty much a wet slog through slush once past the boulders to the reservoir. I, for the most part, stayed above the reservoir to the south and had some impeccable views of lone peak and all the surrounding mountains. Fantastic!

Great hike!!! Its beautiful right from the trail head.

Quite crowded. No shade. Put on sunblock before your start or get burn. Few benches available but some of it is at the open with no shade.

Very scenic trail. I started at 7pm today and the first mile was heavily trafficked. After that I was alone for while, got a little crowded at the top but the waterfall was gushing so it made it all worth it. Coming down the sunset glow was beautiful. The last 400meters are very rocky and also steep so make sure you have hiking shoes on

People are not joking when they said this is a really hard trail in the end! One of the hardest hikes I have taken, but the huge, beautiful waterfall is worth it in the end!! Keep pushing and you’ll get there!

Awesome hike! Highly recommend a few hours for sitting at the top and watching the waterfall! Lots of bugs when we went around 3:00. Wear sunscreen! Don’t give up the last 500 yards or so is the toughest.

Gorgeous Trail.

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