    4.5 stars. Great hike with a gradual incline the whole way up. Stream on your side in the beginning and two minor falls on the way to rainbow falls which, while fairly dry of late, wasn’t the most voluminous falls in the park but beautiful none the less. Some rocks and tree roots along the way but overall a great hike - even with the gnats in the lower middle section. Perfect hike to finish smoking my bags after three previous days hiking

    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.
