“Worth the hike!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2012

We hiked to the falls, not sure what to expect. It was breathtaking! There was still some snow on the mountains and the water was running fast. As you approach the falls you'll be greated by marmots who live in the rocks. They are very cute and opportunists at finding food in hikers backpacks.

“hiking the falls”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2012

Beautiful scenery, however at the very end of the trail it is very rocky and slippery, I would not recommend climbing it with young children

“A hike to the falls”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2012

It is a strenuous hike but the view is well worth it. There are a bunch of yellow-bellied marmots that live in the rocks at the falls and are very photogenic. The hardest parts of the hike were the rock falls that had to be traversed. The trip up and back was very scenic. I saw a mama bear and her cub on the way.back down. She has a den in the area and as long as people do not bother her she does not bother with the people. A great sight!

“Great hike...Accessible for Most”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2012

Well worth the hike and traversing the trail when it gets a little steep and slippery. The falls at the end are beautiful and I would love to visit again this summer.

“beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2011

a great hike early in the morning when no one else is out. i went alone the second morning and loved it. i ran to the falls and hung around for about 15 minutes and found a great water hole to take a dip in before running back to meet my family for breakfast.
