Not too rigorous - some exertion at the beginning to see the waterfall but then mostly flat with beautiful scenery as you walk through and along the meadow. We walked for about a mile and a half before turning around. We hoped to see moose,...More

We surprised a lot of people by camping with 3 kids younger than 12. It is a forgiving trail, although it gets steep. We have been on this trail multiple times and love it. You are able to avoid many of the crowds at the...More

The east inlet trail is one of my favorite hikes. Adams Falls is a short hike that everyone will enjoy. Go a little further and you'll reach the meadows with a view of the stream with Mt Baldy in the backdrop. This is a beautiful...More

We did the short hike to Adams Falls which is amazing, fast rushing waters. So picturesque. We walked a bit further into the valley, again beautiful, before turning around as we had a much longer trail to hike next. Fairly easy hike, lots of families...More

We wanted a shorter hike with the deep snow and no snow shoes on us. We did the shorter part of this trail that takes you to Adams Falls. Cannot see any water but the view and walk was wonderful. I had sprained my ankle...More

This was an easy, nice hike to the falls and back. The weather looked threatening, so we did not continue on a bit further to the meadow, but wish we would have!
