The Falls are spectacular. You can walk right up to the base of them. The drive up to the Falls is interesting and a little nail-biting thanks to the switchbacks but it is well worth it! Just don't drive a big car, truck or RV! :)
When we arrived, we didn't go to the base of the Falls right away because my hubby and I planned to hike the Iceline Trail. After all of my research planning our dream vacation, this hike was consistently voted one of the best by avid hikers! It is a 7-8 hour all day hike so be prepared. It is also considered strenous but I figured we'd maybe only get one chance to do this. So, we did. BREATHTAKING! There are no words to describe the feeling of seeing those massive Falls get smaller and smaller and farther away from you the longer you hike. The view of the glacier was spectacular! This is something you just can't see from the ground. Unfortunately, after hiking about 3 hours, we were almost at the top when a rain storm came through. We had to take shelter against the side of the mountain because it became VERY windy and cold. Luckily, we were prepared for all types of weather. However, we didn't have a lot of experience hiking and did not want to be in the wide open space and have another storm come through. So, we hiked back down the same way we went up and the sights were just as beautiful. I would have loved to be able to do the entire hike but it was better to be safe than sorry. Anyway, if you are adventureous and looking to do more than just sight-seeing, highly consider this hike. It is difficult but sooooo worth it!
