Beautiful. A handful of people in the trail. The first fall is a short walk from where you park. It's a nice hang out are for photos and snacks.
Walked 2 more miles from the first fall and did not make it to either the second or third but I can guarantee the trail is beautiful!

Great first time hike. Went to first summit and then continued to North Pack. Very rocky at times but great views! Cliff Trail was a bit difficult but had some great views.
