    The hike to the falls is easy. Sometimes there is a waterfall, most of the time there is a drip. The entire trail up to LeConte is difficult with very little if any views at all. If you want great views take Alum up. If you don't want to bored coming back down take Bulls head.

    Easy hike and worth the trek to the end of the trail. Roughly 80’ waterfall with excellent picture opportunities.
