Great hike! Did this with my 12-year-old on 6/5. There is lots of runoff water on the trail from about 3 miles on. Snow for the last mile and spikes would help for sure. Trekking poles made the snowy parts much easier. There is still a lot of ice in the lake and it’s absolutely gorgeous with the greens and blues. A very fun slide down the mountain on the way down through the snow. We were 3 hrs up and 2 hrs down with a good pace and snow.

Open! Mainly open space. Really easy to walk. Great to bring dogs and whole family. Cliffs oversee the wide river. Plenty of wild flowers. As you walk towards the end, there is an entrance and a place people sit in the river or just hang out by the bank. River looks deep and is currently running really strong as water was released from the dam so be careful not to go in too deep!

The snow is almost entirely gone on trail. There were only a few scattered patches that had no effect on navigation or safety. I hiked this in trail runners today with no problems. It was rather windy and cold at the top. Pack a sweatshirt or hoodie for the higher elevation portion of the trail.

Beautiful small waterfall with a great hiking trail ;) Do not miss it in AL

Very nice walk, a bit overgrown, no shade. But very tranquil walk. Beautiful Mountain View’s and flowers.

Gorgeous views but the trail is definitely meant mainly for bikes

Views are amazing

Falls are definitely worth it and fun to slide down. Also, this trail is going to be close to 10 miles round trip for a heads up. 4.8 miles one way. Download the map! It is easy to take a wrong turn. But if you’re cheap like me then screen shot the general map. Park near the quintette fire station and then walk across the street to the yellow gate (1). Disregard the sign about the Pilot creek falls(2) as it almost misleading. Just follow the road. Left at the first split (3) in the road, there is another logging road that could be considered a split but just stay left passed that also. Then there is another true split in the road and take the right(4), follow the road down passed the switchback. After the switch back it is one more split, take the right again(5), you will cross passed a green gate (6) and soon after that is a logging road/trail (7) that slightly dives down to the left, take it. The trail is only about 100yards in and on the right(8). You will see all the blow down trees (along with intentionally cut down trees to try and block the trail) just follow the best path down and it takes you straight to the falls. I will post pictures with the numbers I put in parentheses of the splits also with arrows on them to help those that don’t want to download. Highly suggest just downloading though haha as we hiked an extra 2 miles or so by accident. Oh and there was a big bear on our way back lol

I couldn’t find the trail head. Would not recommend.

Pretty. Busy. Worth checking out

Nice easy hike for beginners. Heavy traffic, tourist trap

Make sure you get there early in the morning because the sun and the high elevation is challenging. Bug repellent spray is a must.

Easy trail for not very avid hikers. Pretty views. Heavy traffic.

Would classify this as moderate especially if you do the entire 2.1mi loop with kids. Worth it though. Great hike with stopping places and vistas. Saw some deer, lizards, and a couple of light waterfalls/brooks.

Pretty, busy and similar environment to GOTG.

Great Trail. Snow is melted just enough. Saw mountain goat poop everywhere and spots where a bear scratched trees. Such a beautiful area.

Tourist trap. Short, not really “hiking” when there’s cement and a railing all the way up.

Tourist trap but still beautiful

beautiful well maintained trail with nice views of the pacific and golden gate. Find Cliff House and park in the parking below it. Then Walk up the past Cliff House to the Lands End entrance where the costal trailhead is marked. Follow the trail all the way to the Golden Gate! Windy so a windbreaker and ear plugs was helpful! Once we got to the Presidio we ubered back to the parking lot!!

Beautiful hike with good views of city while still feeling lost in nature. Quick get away right by town.

Beautiful hike. A must do!!

Took this on a big loop around Freel- Star Lake to Cold Creek was a great descent! Star Lake is certainly a gem, not the quietest lake i have been to, but absolutely perfect with the massive rock walls behind adding a rugged reflection on a still day. The trail down was very flowy, steep at times which had me happy to be descending, and offered fantastic views for a good chunk of it

Followed the coordinates and directions on the trail app to go around lake Irwin- we were almost there and got to a sign that said private property? I don’t remember anyone mentioning seeing this so we turned around and ended up walking around lake Irwin. Bummed because this hike looked awesome, but we were unsure how to get there.

Nive view.

2nd time doing this trail within a month. Awesome trail, good for kids and dogs. Very crowded on the weekends. Must get there early for parking.
