Very nice, shaded, easy hike with a couple thigh burners! You follow the river almost the entire way, which we loved! The waterfalls and cascades are just beautiful to see in person.

Fairly easy hike along a beautiful stream. You pass by a couple of different falls on the way up. It took us forever because I'm a photog ferak and there are a million beautiful stops along the way. Would recommend getting there early because it fills up later in the day. We started our hike at 8:15 and there were only 3 other cars in the parking lot and when we finished the parking lot was filled up.

Beautiful hike beside stream the whole way up. Trail not too difficult, although the steady climb will take a toll to those not acclimated to altitude. A few water breaks should do the trick. Beautiful scenery most of the way, and the falls along the way are great! Still some trail damage, and the bridge was still under construction at the top, but everything is in pretty good shape.

Nice easy hike- I would definitely take some of my out of town visitors back here. We got to the trail head at 7.30am and the carpark was near full already, but the trail didn't get busy til we were coming back down again.

Beautiful hike, signage is not that great to the Trailhead. Just keep driving until you get to the second parking lot that is likely full. If you are a shutter bug count on taking five hours at least. At Ouzel Fall, make sure you walk around closer to the water fall and get sprayed by the mist. Awesome.
