Beautiful scenery and views. We hiked the Overlook and River Trails then finished up with the North Grove Trail. We arrived at the park around 9 am so we were pretty much alone until we returned to the visitor center at around 12 pm . By then the tourist arrived and it was no longer peaceful. We hiked in the snow. That was pretty cool too.

I love to camp here and do all the trails. There is a hike for everyone from easy to strenuous. The trees, flora and fauna are a feast for my eyes and a balm for my heart. I would rate this particular hike as easy; as I've seen people from 3-80 enjoying it. The trip to the Agassiz Tree is well worth the extra steps. Definitely take extra water, bug repellent and a camera.
