The beautiful waterfalls at Avalanche Lake, the emerald-green water, and the dense, old-growth forest along raging Avalanche Creek are what make this hike so popular. It’s best to visit in the early morning or late afternoon to avoid crowds. Begin the hike in a thick grove of ancient cedars and follow the creek to a narrow gorge filled with raging whitewater.
