- Snow on trail
Some minor snow patches on the trail - poles helped, but weren't necessary - but the vast majority was dry ground. Perfect conditions.
Reached the falls - a snow-covered path meandered through the rockfall. Poles really helped here; if you like solid ground beneath you, you might want to stop before the rockfall and enjoy the falls from there. Made it to the creek coming from the waterfall, took a snack break. Enjoyed the sunshine and the view of the falls, with snow all around. Eventually headed back down the way we came (though you could continue on the trail and loop around home). I think we went about 4 miles.
Great hike, great day, glad we risked the drive up. Hike took less than 2 hours.
