Excellent moderate hike. We had trekking poles which are very helpful in places. Next time we will take a lunch and hike to the lake. You will need about 4 to 5 hours to really enjoy this hike to its fullest.

Hike past the falls all the way to the lake- very worth it. Crowds thin out significantly after the falls. Very beautiful day hike.

Crowded but the falls were beautiful. Watch a Slack Liner cross the waterfall. Amazing mountain and valley views! What's with all the dog poop bags left at the side of the trail?!

Hiked this trail in July and it was beautiful! It is a great hike and the falls are incredible. It is well traveled and you will meet a lot of people going up and down. Get there early to park near the trailhead.

Beautiful hike with plenty to see and good places to stop. It took about 1.5 hours up and 1 down and was a little crowded.

Finished this trail yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed it! Took about an hour and a half to get up to the falls and about an hour back (I'm a bit slow right now at eight months pregnant). We spent about 45 minutes up at the falls, between taking photos and eating lunch. Besides the falls, my favorite part of the hike was the wildflower meadow you walk through shortly before reaching the falls.
