The hike is all downhill to the falls, and uphill on the way back. Wasn't too difficult. We continued down to the lake because other hikers told us they saw a bear by the lake. I saw a deer up the trail and he was...More

Ok, we are waterfall fanatics but this is a really nice falls. As with all hikes here you need to consider there is lots of elevation gain and the altitude makes it seem harder.

It's not as impressive as Virginia Falls, but the hike to Baring Falls is much quicker. It's a pretty flat trail after an initial descent. The falls are not huge but are a decent size and a good photo-op.

This is a great little hike just off of Going-to-the-Sun Road. It is accessible late into the fall and early in the spring as well. There is a little bit of elevation change say maybe a hundred feet but if you're in any type of...More

It's 0.7 miles round trip. Fairly easy trail from my perspective. Hike734's map says 100 ft elevation gain/loss. Be sure to take bear spray. Do a search for hike734, Day Hikes for GNP map. It's well worth the cost and... More
