Great hike. Took us 2 hours return. Trail was a bit icy near the falls but easy to walk on. Good afternoon.

I especially like the Calypso Cascades. Parking can be difficult, so get there early.

Probably my favorite trail. Went in August and it was just perfect. That waterfall up top is very much worth the hike, which is a great trail that parallels the stream..really cool.

Good trail with a steady climb the whole way. Some very rocky areas of the trail and many rock steps which could be difficult for some climbers. Many beautiful views. I took pictures along the way and we ate lunch at the top (which was under construction/ new bridge looked done but was fenced off, etc.) so it took us just over 3 hours total time. Heavily forested trail. Love hearing the water while walking. Went on a Monday in October and didn't have any trouble with parking (got to the trailhead around 9:50am).
