  • Beautiful location
  • Great scenery and amazing walk - it's about 3 miles round trip and the walk back is completely uphill. We were her in late July and there was still snow on the ground. I'd recommend getting ought hiking boots just because it's wet and some spots can be muddy. You could manage with sneakers but, wouldn't be as comfortable. The walk back is breathtaking - you're right next to the falls and climbing up steep steps cut in stone - the views are amazing. There's a one way section of this trail and on the way up, the one way is slightly shorter - this section is where you're walking by the falls, I highly recommend it. Saw a bear (black bear, with brown fur) from the trail about 0.6 miles from the trail head. He was past the meadow and busy chomping on something.
