This hike has a pretty moderate incline and as a medium level hiker it wasn't too much of a challenge. I thought because of the mileage it might be a bit of a process for me but surprisingly it went smoothly. There are so many beautiful places to take breaks along the trail. There are many creeks, small waterfalls and beautiful trees and greenery along the trail. Honestly, this hike is so worth it. When you finally get to the top its just incredible. The color of Colchuck is hypnotizing. It is a tranquil teal blue and the ice caps and glaciers nearby on Asgard are pretty cool to check out as well. It is such a great place for photographs. An amazing hike for anyone in my opinion!

Definitely family friendly. The lakes are pretty and the hike is not difficult. It isn't a stunning hike like the lower enchantments, but if you want a quick jaunt to some nice lakes, it's a good way to go.

People need to keep their dogs leashed, though. I don't care how "nice" your dog is. It needs to be on a leash when you're on a public trail. An otherwise pleasant hike was ruined by an irresponsible dog owner whose dog advanced and chomped on my sister's dog before she could jerk her away. There were a lot of off leash dogs on this trail so if you take your dog, be aware.

A really lovely walk with many side trails. The variety of birds was a nice surprise. Be warned though, horse poop along trail (and side trails) frequent, and hardly any signage. Would meander around again though!!

Fun but very difficult. Quite a few trees across trail, too much snow this time of the year up top, but besides that a good hike.

Really beautiful trail but hard to navigate due to lack of signage.

The beginning of the trail is the best part because you get to walk along the water and see the falls. Once you cross the bridge (not that far in) it’s all flat. The trail is very wide and easy to walk on so it’s good to take kids on. The downside is the road being on the other side of the river. You do hear cars and see homes along the trail. If you’re looking for a secluded trail then this might not be one for you but it’s definitely worth checking out. The river does have some beautiful swimming holes as well

Located in Little Mountain Park, these trails are connected with roughly 6-10 other trails. All trails are well maintained, bathrooms at every trailhead and each trail is clearly labeled. Parking is easily found if you drive to the top of the mountain.

Great trail! Went up the old, down the new. Has to be the best way to do it, saves the knees! Only snow on the trail was the last 20 feet at the top. Great hike even in the rain!

Was a great hike! The background of the falls and river are so therapeutic throughout the hike. A little muddy throughout and can be steep on certain aspects of hike but there are lots of stops along the way to take a rest if necessary.

Three stops for the falls (upper,middle,lower) trust me the upper is worth the trek! Probably bring some poles though for the steep parts

there was a dangerous detour linked to regular traffic

Just fine for a short jog in the woods, despite the highway noise.

Ticks!!!! My dog got so many TICKS!!! Just a heads up! Beautiful area, though.

Great workout trail. It’s beautiful trail way up. The view wasn’t great due to fogs but should be great weather permits.

This is rather short hike with narrow trail that is well kept (combination of dirt in some areas, rocks in others) making it manageable even in the rain. The elevation gain makes it a fun one for anyone wanting a good workout, from the newbie (lots of places you can stop and rest) to the more advanced who just wanna go fast and get their heart rate up. The lookout area at the top of the rock is tiny and gets crowded rather fast, even on a weekday afternoon in the spring rain (meaning very little traffic). I feel like the view at the top is nice but not breathtaking; the wildlife tends to steal this show. I’ve seen the most bold and beautiful blue jays fly right up to me and squirrels nudge my leg just waiting for a handout. Clearly the animals have come to expect food from the humans (note, I’ve never had food or fed anything while here). Overall a lovely little hike that is easy to do in under an hour.

Really pretty walk that’s family friendly. Steep in some areas, about 350 foot elevation gain according to Garmin. Lots of loops to do. We did about 4 miles worth. Muddy in some spots, horse droppings too. Will return for sure.

Thigh burner. Completed this hike 2 days ago and I am still hurting! We were warned about snow at the top on our way up but didn’t find it too hard to navigate. Lots of markings and footprints to follow that make is easy to stay on track, my boyfriend was wearing running shoes and I had my hiking boots on, no poles for either of us and it was manageable. Bring lots of water for the way up! Try and go on a clear day so your rewarded with the view, we had 50% visibility.

Watch out for snakes! We almost stepped on a few going in and out. The waterfalls were beautiful, because there’s so much water right now. Definitely worth the walk!

Great view. Snow is still thick there, but have been paved. If wanna hike in that area snow-shoe is recommended. But if just come to this overlook. It’s fine. And don’t miss it!

Small patches of snow here or there. 15 or so creek crossings. Did not need spikes or poles. Foggy at the top for us so couldn’t see any view, just the mailbox.

This trail is a beautiful hike. We made it all the way up to the upper Falls. Was muddy in a few spots, but very well maintained. Lots of built in wood steps and switch backs. You have a beautiful view the entire hike and the water falls are just majestic.

It felt like I was in pure agony for the whole way up due to the constant high incline. Only a couple small patches of snow on the trail toward the top. We couldn’t see a view due to the fogginess. The contents of the mailbox were amusing. My friend used poles but I did fine without them and just waterproof hiking boots.

nice walk . it's on college property so you have to pay a little bit two to three bucks. 2 bucks for two hours. $3 all day.
