A nice easy trail. Great views of mtns and a few nice lakes and streams. Going out is slightly uphill but not much elevation gain. Back is easy slope downhill.

Go, you will not regret it...it is simply amazing in the canyon! If you have made it to the falls and inspiration point, then you are just warming up. I am glad I was swayed by the great reviews because it is unforgettable and glorious!

Keep hiking past Inspiration Point and you will be rewarded! Very cool! Beautiful views and few tourists make it up very far.

I did this hike with my wife and kids (17, 15, and 12) when we visited last month and had a fantastic time. We wanted to find some place that wasn't packed with tourists and this worked great. We took the boat over and hiked with the masses to inspiration point which is just above the lake. The canyon trail continues up and through the canyon and is spectacular. The guide books are right on when they mention that the most strenuous part of the hike is the first push up to the lookout and then it evens out for the most part following the stream up the canyon.

This was not an easy hike, but it was far from strenuous. We met many families with younger kids and they were having a good time. You can always hike for a ways up the canyon and turn around and head back if you are getting tired. There are several spots to stop along the way to take a break next to the water or even soak you feet. My kids actually went swimming - brrrrr. It would probably be a good idea to bring a water filter pump along as there is no well along the way.

We hiked to the junction of the Summit Trail and had lunch. The views along the trail are awesome and there was a lot to look at. We were lucky enough to see 2 bull moose and a cow moose with a couple calves. Very cool - looks just like the photos on the other reviews!

I would recommend you leave early and take it easy hiking. You'll have a better time than pushing it the whole day!

My husband and I - late 50s from sea level home - were quite proud that we successfully completed the Cascade Canyon hike. The first mile is tough - quite a climb from the Hidden Falls to Inspiration Point - but the hike into the canyon was more gradual and really enjoyable. We saw several moose and deer. The views of the mountain range, waterfalls, creek, meadows, and forest were incredibly beautiful. This was our favorite hike.
