  • Snow shoes recommended on literature, but not really needed. Yaktrax are sufficient. So much foot traffic that paths are packed down.  more »
  • The hike even with fresh snow was a good one, and not to scary. The waterfalls at the end were frozen which was a great scene. There were a few people climbing and it was fun to watch.  more »

  • Winter Visit: it has a small parking lot that pay $5 for the park service. We went without having snowshoes so we didn't walk far. Regardless, it was still a beautiful place to check out if looking for a silver white wonderland view.
  • This was an awesome, short hike to an amazing waterfall. It was easy to do with kids, and because of all the snow, the water level in early June was really high and impressive to see.
  • Beautiful!
  • Spectacular!
