Make sure to walk up to the waterfall itself even if you don't continue to the Van Trump trail. You can walk right up to the waterfall. 3.6mi

Beautiful! The trail to the upper comet falls still has some snow fields, but it not difficult to navigate and well worth the effort!! — 16h 30m

Trail is in good shape. We started a bit after 9 am and enjoyed hiking in the shade for most of the way up. 2.7mi
