Beautiful hike. Fairly easy for seasoned hikers. We had three kids with us so we only made it to Cascade Falls. Some scrambling and it's a bit muddy / slippery, especially in this time of year. (Autumn) but the foliage is really spectacular and make the trail colorful and beautiful.

Really nice hike, Gus's Outlook is a great spot for lunch, make sure you go up to the West Peak Vista as that's a great spot for the view.
We looped the summit via the Hand Glide trail which was fun though signs are not that visible.

Second falls are really interesting, the walk gets a bit more complicated from there to the top although it's worth it. The summit per se is not great but all the other points of interest and vistas are definitely worth the effort.

Definitely recommend!

Fun trail to do with kids. Great falls, and nice random views along the way

great waterfalls in mid spring. it can be pretty icy if it early in the spring.

I have a rash on my taint. it's a tough hike from the cascade falls to the summit. bring extra water! no view from the actual summit but there's a lookout tower with a good view

The trail seemed fairly easy until the second cascade. After that, it was hard. Today was almost a 90 degree day so my boyfriend and I went through over 3 liters of water, together. Snacks and possibly even a lunch/dinner are a must. I would rate this trail hard. Also, the summit has nearly no view unless you go to the lookout tower.

Great place to hike! Many different spots to stop and take in the views, our favorite was the western summit. This trail is rated moderate but I saw a lot of people struggling or turning back before reaching the top. Definitely plan on plenty of water and some nutrition to make the round trip.

Wish the HangGlider trail was marked. Other than that what a lovely hike!

Definitely a steep climb after the waterfall!

A favorite, because even if you don't get to the top, the Cascade Falls is a great lunch spot.
BTW, this is longer, harder hike than many expect (maybe not this crew). The lower part is fairly easy but above the Falls gets steeper and more overgrown towards the top. Bring water for sure and probably a snack. I've seen the local fire department have to rescue a collapsed hiker from this trail and it wasn't pretty.

Beautiful hike but I would agree with other reviewer that parts of this trail are quite steep and rocky. Views are wonderful.

wear jeans overgrown in some areas ...follow signs

Nice hike with some good places to stop before the summit. Gus' Lookout was really nice. The only way to see the view from the top is if you go up the lookout tower. Not a good hike for novices or first timers.

One of my favorite areas. You will want a map to get the most out of your visit here. Fairly easy terrain, some of the trails at the furthest points are very narrow or overgrown completely. I recommend starting at the meadows and, doing that loop, then going towards the water for some great views.

I found this moderate trail to be challenging. Loved it regardless. Mostly steep sections, lots of rocks and roots. Some of the trail is flattish with nice gravel. I hiked on a pretty warm afternoon (mid-80), clear day, and was mostly in shade. Will try trail again when I have more miles on my feet, but compared to other moderate trails in the area, I feel this one will still be a challenge.
