This was a great hike to a very nice waterfall. It is a little difficult to find, but well worth the effort. Be advised, this hike is almost all uphill to the falls, but definately within reach of people not quite used to the altitude.

It was a beautiful hike. It took us longer than the 2-3 hours, but we stopped and had snacks at one point, and at the lake we just explored. The beginning of the hike follows a mining road. On June 29th, the water was flowing very heavily. There were lots of opportunities to spot the falls. There is an old... More

A good vigorous hike with lots of views and lots of interesting water falls and rapids to photograph. Steep climb and it's usually crowded so get there early

This is not a moderate hike, but well worth the exertion! It is rocky terrain, even though most of the hike follows a mining road. We were hiking over boulders, through snow PLUS it is around 11,000 ft. The altitude plus exertion made us glad that we had brought our hiking poles, plenty of water, and a snack to have... More

What a beautiful hike! Our family of 5 recently made the hike to the falls. Two of us had some problems with the altitude and had to take it slow. But there are plenty of places to rest along the way. This is a pretty steep hike and there are rocks and roots along the way. But just take it... More

You can make this hike as difficult as you want. I'm 64, coming from sea level (Florida), so I took things slow. I hiked for a couple hours, made it to a beautiful waterfall and turned back. But there were a number of lakes higher up the trail, although some returning hikers told us there was still a lot of... More

Hike is just past the trailhead to Quandry Peak. Moderate hike for most casual hikers as far as length and difficulty, there was some snow towards the top. Views are splendid and the waterfalls are continuous. Lake at the top is gorgeous with clear water that runs into the valley.

I love this hike I've been 3 times and every time I've seen mountain goats. The glacier lake at the top is beautiful! It's a must do ;)

The was such an amazing experience. The more we drove the more exciting this drive was. We got out of the car and hiked and there was so much to see. The beautiful waterfalls, a bear cave across the falls, elk tracks and so much more. We actually took Senior Pictures for my daughter and family pictures that were lovely.... More

This was amazing. Drive to the end and get out and walk. Find the amazing waterfall but be careful it is dangerous. We took Sr pics for my daughter here. We also saw a bear cave across the waterfall. Amazing!
