We hiked to the frozen falls along a mostly frozen trail. Didn't get incredibly close as there were holes in the ice along the creek. Several folks ahead of us connected to the trail that leads up to Mtn Village and the pass. Would love...More

Easy hike, even in winter with snow packed. Can access from end of South Pine. No need to get on Rt 550. Gradual climb until the last 1/8 mile then more strenuous. Take trekking poles if snow and you need to stabilize yourself on way...More

Hiked this through the snow. Tough uphill hike for 2 miles (4 miles round trip), but worth the trek! Enter trail at end of Pike Street.

This is a great trail for families. It is not difficult, but of course if you are not used to the altitude you may need to take some breaks. The falls make for a great destination. Loved this trail.

Wonderful moderate hike up the canyon with a beautiful waterfall at the end of the canyon. The leaves were changing which made the experience even more beautiful. Easy to find trail. Have fun!

I think you could if you have spikes for the bottom of your shoes. Shouldn't be a issue.
