Easy hike in the snow, but the waterfall was amazing. I assume the hike is much better with no snow, but the trail in the snow was awesome none the less. 2 mile hike in the snow.

After 3 attempts, we finally found moon falls. Was it ever worth it! Long drive, well maintained gravel road, but totally worth it. Even the drive had amazing views (we took 58). Moon falls is a very short "hike" from the parking area - well maintained trail and my kids (1 & 3) were able to walk almost all of it except for a few steep spots. My advice to others seeking Moon, Spirit, and Pinard falls - do not use directions from websites. Plug coordinates into your GPS.

The drive out there was very pretty due to the fall colors but a long one at that, decent drive though. The hike, if you can even call it a hike, was very short and all down hill. Well maintained trail. The fall itself was not impressive but then again there was hardly any water coming down the "fall" a light trickle in my opinion. Overall I was pretty disappointed and will not be going out there again especially for how far you have to drive, save your gas and go elsewhere. Still a fun day to get out of the house. Oh and there was only one waterfall so I'm not sure why it says Moon Falls on here, totally not on the same hike......There's a sign for Moon Falls up the road but we never found it. Very poor markings. I don't know why this says Spirit and Moon Falls, completely false. Either way, Happy Hiking~

Hiked to Divide Lake yesterday and it was a great hike, plus autumn is in the air! You can also camp at Divide Lake. The views were perfect!

The drive there was rough, definitely better for cars with good tires since you're on gravel road for about 15 mi. Only made it to the Spirit Falls, very beautiful though! Short hike through the forest from where we parked the car. Let our dog off the leash so he could bound through the forest, and he had a good time wading around in the water at the base of the waterfall when we got there. Picnic table and bench there too, we sat down on a big log and ate our lunch.

Trail leads to a granite tower that provides a 360 degree view of the west slope of Diamond Peak and the valley to the north west. The tower is not to difficult to climb. Well worth the effort.

Beautiful falls, gorgeous, easy trail meandering through old growth forest. Definitely worth the long haul on a well-kept gravel road.
