  • Fantastic waterfall! If you go to early in the spring it will be frozen over, but go in the summer and it is beautiful!
  • Came here in early February. The falls were frozen over, but the water was still running behind a thick wall of ice. I have never seen anything like it.
  • A lovely hike with beautiful views all along the way. Not too difficult of a trail but the beauty that surrounds you takes your breath away.
  • Great views. Moderate walk.
  • Easy hike from Bear Lake with my wife and 2 year old. Had a blast. 1 mile each way from Bear lake. Good first trail for the week. Gets busy. Start early.
