The trail to the upper falls is more demanding and will take more energy with an uphill climb but you will be rewarded with the view of three falls flowing into one pool, which is gorgeous.

During the summer the path is always busy with tourists. The best time to go is in late spring and early summer. There is still some ice left, but the river and falls are flowing nicely. The sound of running water is very relaxing. During this time there are also fewer people to ruin the serenity.

The NEAT thing is that at the end of the first section there is a small tunnel entrance. It is very wet and the ceiling is dripping. As you enter it you can hear this sound of water thundering. When you get to the exit you see an 8-foot wide by 8-foot high opening and hear roaring water. As you approach and exit the opening, you see that you are standing on a ledge within a sort of rock tube.
The river is pouring down the opposite side of the tubular canyon, about six feet in front of you--so you get very wet. People had to take turns standing there in pairs to look at it because of the small area. Most people didn't have rain ponchos and didn't stand there more than a few seconds. We had our ponchos and enjoyed a few minutes before we felt like we were being selfish with the experience and relinquished it to the people behind us. In all the park guides there is no mention of this spectacular aspect of the trail. They just say it's a trail that follows a river with 'boiling inkpots' along the way.
