Great hike, if you are trying to reach the top then you definitely need boots with traction for the snow. I recommend walking poles, expect it to be a bit chilly and windy. Steep climb but do it on a day where it's nice and sunny.

A beautiful view awaits you at the end. I couldn't stop taking pictures! Can get windy, so dress warm.

I've hiked this trail many times and love it, but there's no waterfall as the description suggests. Great camping options at the top and connections to other trails. Check to make sure the footbridge at the beginning of the hike is functional. As of Dec. 2017 it had been severely damaged by flooding.

Good early season conditions right now. Snow was mostly solid. Snowshoed the whole way. Crampons could be useful for the final push, but not necessary if you have good traction on your snow shoes.

Followed the directions (using Google Maps) to get to the trail head on April 22, 2018. No success! The end of Canyon Road takes you to a private residence.

The trail is short but the falls are worth the lack of distance. There is a fair amount to explore around the falls as well.

This is a super intense hike, lots of rushing glacial river crossings and loose rocks. But it's beautiful! So much fun!

This is an very beautiful trail! There are stunning views of the Nooksack River almost constantly and the trail seems to go on forever. It's very picturesque, I would highly recommend it to photographers.

very cool trail. I went in January and the water seemed quite high, it was beautiful.

Three starts for seasonal weather, great trail, tons of snow. Had to park 2.5 miles from trial head. Trail completely covered in up to 2 feet of snow. Not an easy hike in November. Great challenge and a ton of fun. Will hike again this summer. Pro tip: bring chains, snowshoes, and a GPS.

A little slippery in spots but beautiful along the river. Some trees across trail near the end but we managed to climb over/around.

It was a great day. There was about 6 inches of snow at the top less at the bottom. The creeks/ streams easy to cross with all the snow. Brought microspikes but didn't need them. My friend used it but she lost one pair

Oct 6: road up to trailhead is fine, a car should be able to make it if they just avoid the few big potholes.

The trail itself is just moderate difficulty until you hit the last stream crossing. Today the stream wasnt large but rock hopping was too treacherous since so many rocks were covered with ice. We found a shallow section and walked through it.

After the stream it gets more difficult with the last little bit up to the ridge being almost a scramble. Certainly worth it as you get a great view of the glacier and can even hear it crack.

We saw no significant wildlife though im told there are often mountain goats around and there was goat poopies near the top. Also saw a pile of feathers where im sure some bird became a meal.

Loved this trail!! Brought sandals to cross the last stream as the water was running fast and we could not find a path to cross on rocks. The hike was overall pretty easy other than the last water crossing!

Next to Kendall Katwalk on Snoqualmie Pass, this was my absolute favorite trail to date. An incredible trail takes you up a long incline through heavy canopy for about a mile, then across several water crossings (the first, a trickle, the next three moderate), and switchbacks, where at 2.4 miles, you can choose between the opportunity to view Coleman Glacier up close (and traverse a difficult water crossing), or turn right and head upwards onto the "climber's path", a 600 foot near vertical climb across 0.4 miles to the ridge. At the halfway point of the climber trail, the view of Baker, it's glaciers, moraines, and a panorama at near 5,500 feet is breathtaking. Do NOT miss this very popular and utterly worthwhile trail if you are in the Mount Baker area!!

Love this hike! You have to ford/cross several rivers which is really cold and also very nice. At the end is a very nice glacier! You are all probably thinking "so it's a boring glacier, who cares" but it is totally awesome and is even bluer than in the pictures!!! Very pretty, and very very cold. Excellent hike.

A great scramble. Certainly not a hike.

Pretty along the river, but then the trail just ends in a weird spot. Little odd.

Fantastic views and well worth the climb.

Awesome hike. Super challenging and long. Can cautiously bring dogs. Wonderful view in meadow of mountains. Couldve went longer but on time crunch. Could camp out in meadows.

Beautiful!

Very nice trail with a few river crossings and spectacular views of the glacier. We went past the spot where most people had lunch and than turned around. It becomes a little tricky because of the steepness and all the loose rock. We made it to a boulder on top of a point. The views were stunning.

great hike! I would say more moderate than hard, but a nice little workout. the last water crossing was fairly challenging, but it was also a hot day (so maybe more water).

This hike did not disappoint. Glacial views were unreal - you could practically kiss Mt. Baker! If you turn around you will see silhouettes from other mountains. Should be labeled moderate for the gain, however crossing the rushing creeks can be meticulous. Be aware of hiking in the afternoon on a hot day while crossing isn't advised, though I made it. Bring a trekking pole for aid as loose sturdy sticks are few & far between. On the 8mi drive up, be aware of sneaky potholes. You can buy your day pass at the forest station in Glacier before the turn off of 542.

It's an awesome trail, beautiful glacier

Trail starts out beautiful and very quickly gets confusing. A little trial and error and you can figure it out. The falls were beautiful and well worth the short hike. We were at the falls much quicker than expected. Over a few logs and walking on the rocks of the creek bed. The creek was still running but at a much lower level than in heavier rain seasons.

I know I am out of shape and was hoping this would be a good starter hike as was mentioned but holy cow it had some rough patches. had my 6 1/2 year old grandson with us and there were a few spots that were a bit sketchy for him. It was a beautiful hike and worth the effort, especially along the river. There were a few trees down but the path went around them easily enough. Be prepared for a couple of what I called goat trails, narrow climbs. Some overgrown areas but not impassable. Enjoy!

Beautiful trail. A bit challenging, but nothing too crazy.
