YES, I know it's early but this trail is VERY popular and the parking is limited. I have tried to get to Mildred Pt. 2 x but the driving rain and the snow got in the way. Hopefully, it will be a sunny day. The falls are magnificent, at Van Trump, the mt. is so close that you can hear and see the cracking and sliding of the glacier and the view from Mildred is suppose to be breathtaking.
Mileage: approx 7miles RT
Elevation gain: approx. 2200'
Park Pass needed per car
I leave on time and don't wait so be at P&R approx. 10 min before departure.
