Great hike. Not much shade. But, the falls were beautiful. Just past the good falls view is a pool and rock slide, if you are daring enough. Water a bit chilly, but welcomed!

With some minimal corridor maintenance and if your prepared for the bugs easily a five star hike

this hike was more difficult than I expected given the rating and reviews; it's a decent incline the whole way up without very much shade. However it has great river views most of the way, the waterfall is spectacular, and there is even a few calm pool spots at the top to wade, play and relax. next time I'm packing a lunch and planning to stay longer at the top.

Me and few of my friends went here for a big, week long, summer fishing trip and I was very pleased with the beauty of the area. The hike in is easy at first, slight incline and very beautiful, but as you keep going you start to go up a canyon and it becomes quite a hard hike especially if you are backpacking it. Then the glorious pass comes marking the end of your steep climb with a killer view. After that its a bit up and down with another steep part to the first lake but once you see the view into the basin its all worth it. The fishing was really good, got lots of bites and fish they are all just very small and not much to eat. After a couple of days of fishing we hiked to the ridge which was a stunning view at about 11,800 feet. We got a constant storm every day at around 5 pm so watch out for those. wonderful area, lots of views and lakes and nice pine smells.

Moderately difficult hike up to the first lake, plan on a short river crossing within the first mile. Beautiful meadows and views of nearby snow capped peaks and year-round glaciers as you advance on the trail. If fishing, don't expect any trophy fish. Plan on abundant 8-14 inch rainbow trout in the lower lakes. Upper lakes are mostly barren, with the best fish found in the large lake with high boulder fields to the south-west of the initial lake. Prepare for heavy mosquitos in the morning and evening with plenty of bug spray and netting. Definitely one of the most scenic areas of the winds I have ever been. Beautiful glacier-carved cliffs and partially frozen lakes made for an incredibly unique week of backpacking.

Hiked this 6 July 2017: Excellent hike to the gap. Some small drifts easily bypassed before the gap. Had a
400% snow year so lots of water and snow! One large snowdrift right before the clearing at the gap. Lots of snow past the gap. Lakes frozen or partially thawed. Insect heaven: need nets or lots of repellent.

The hike was very simple, could take the family out for a day hike to see these gorgeous falls. When coming around the bend near the top you can hear the falls crashing down and the first glimpse will take your breath away! River was running quite high with the run off and the falls were significantly larger than pictures posted here from year before. Would recommend to anyone of any age!
