Climbing the Falls
I left the trail and went up the stream for a while. There are several falls in a row you can climb up beside without rope. I did it in my old running shoes. It is easy slab climbing. The rock is slicker than ice if it is wet though, so be careful. The water was running low that day so there were plenty of dry placements. It is so easy to get sucked down ghost trails on this hike. The trail is always above on the right though so if you want back on just head up. I have done the loop 4 or 5 times, and each time I take a different variation.
