This showshoe hike is a workout, but the rewards are phenomenal. The trail follows a beautiful tumbling creek as it rushes down a narrow gorge. Along the way, the creek drops over no fewer than four pretty waterfalls, with each successive one sporting larger and more intricate ice mantles.

We ended up hiking all the way. We probably should have put our snowshoes after coming onto the snow-field. The lower section of the trail (before the snow) had a great deal of ice on it from recent traffic -- I recommend shoe chains of spikes for this section. The view of the lake at the top was well worth it!
