Easy for a modified off road vehicle. Great views and well worth the drive.

Beautiful! The falls were amazing today. Some snow still on the ground, and few cars made it all the way up to the trailhead. Only 4wd with snow tires got through.

Hiked her last year around April. We thought it was kids friendly, but it wasn't. It was pretty steep in some areas and there were switch backs on others. We took my 6-year-old niece with us and had to stop several times. It took us 4-5 hours to get to the lake with our niece. I wouldn't recommend kids under 10. The lake is crystal clear and beautiful. We caught a few small fishes but let them go. I would go again, just not with kids.

Great trail though pedestrian and vehicle paths overlap in some areas, though I may have been lost for a while. Beautiful birds and flora can be seen if you pay attention.

Hiked this awesome trail back in Oct 2015. Started about 11am and weather was a tiny bit chilly but once you get moving it was perfect. Had lunch overlooking the upper lake. That lake is the most scenic so make sure if you do this trail make it to that one!

Took our stock 2015 Jeep Wrangler and ran thru most trails. Expect the major rock climbing. Great trail to learn how to use your 4x4. Meet some very nice people up and around the trails. A must do again!

I love this as an Easter hike, great fishing and powerful scenery ancient Juniper trees and ice cold waterfalls can make you feel alive

Shaver lake is my favorite place in the world. Hiking, camping, swimming, fishing, boating-- you name it. I have so many memories of this lake from my childhood and it has a revered place in my heart.
