This short but steep hike culminates at a gorgeous turquoise lake surrounded by waterfalls. I actually hesitate to write this review since it's already overcrowded during the summer months. But it's something that's not to be missed if you have the ability to make it...More

This hike was a little difficult, but we took it slow and made it to the top. It is a 1.2 mile climb and is pretty rocky along the way, but so beautiful. The hike is next to a stream so you can hear running...More

HIKE EARLY! Be on the trail by 6:00 AM if you want to see and hear nature and not other people. The board walk at the top is well maintained and reverent, quiet people are there early. Don't wonder off the Trail, stay on the...More

Tough hour-long hike, but well worth it. I believe this was an elevation gain of around 1000 ft. There was also an interesting "spouting" rock behind the lake. Very busy trail, but very enjoyable.
