This is a great family hike, with meadows and ponds (might see a Moose with calves if you are lucky), streams and waterfalls, and at the peak a great view of Two Med Lake. The whole hike, with time for lunch and playing around the...More

A nice easy hike to the falls. 3.8 miles round trip. The last 7/10 of mile gains 500 ft of elevation and is just switchbacks. You can just see the falls and not do the .7 miles to the lookout. However, the view is worth...More

I love waterfalls but this one is top notch. After a nice little hike you just are in this beautiful little forested area that is peaceful as it is stunning.

The view hiking in was spectacular. Even in August the falls were beautiful. Lots of Kodak moments. Trail was well marked. Wooden bridge crossing the creek was a fantastic picture op.

The Falls are scenic and provide a nice spray on a warm summer day. Go beyond the Falls to the view point above to get great views of the surrounding mountains

Keep going beyond the falls and you'll arrive on the Aster Plateau - great views over the lake. Also, about .5 miles from the trailhead are several ponds (on the right side) - look for moose who munch around there regularly.

There is a boat that you can take back but you have to walk to the other end of the lake. Aster falls is about half way. But if you continue on the trail you can hike to Rockwell falls and Twin falls. I figured about 8 miles... More
