After Hidden Falls we headed to Inspiration Point. We could only go the lower viewpoint as the upper viewpoint was closed (end of May). But the view over the lake was still nice.

Amazing national park, absolutely beautiful. This hike is so scenic, pretty safe for all ages, but worth every mile. One of the best hikes I have ever been on.

We made the hike up to inspiration point in the pouring rain and mid 40’s temps and STILL love it! Well worth the extra short distance past hidden falls and fewer crowds.

Take the boat shuttle across the lake and make the short but easy hike up to Inspiration Point for a truly inspiring view. Then continue on through Cascade Canyon even more amazing scenery!

This hike can get busy, but the views are wonderful and if you hike a bit further past the Point, you'll leave most of the crowds behind.

This was a very easy hike with small children. As long as you watched them, you didn't need to worry too much. There are drop-offs and loose rock, so be aware. However, it is a short distance from the fork in the trail that takes...More
