    "Nice place to get out and explore. The science behind the glen is amazing, but don't wear your new sneakers. guaranteed to get wet feet. In order to hike to the top you have to battle a few pretty big rocks. We saw plenty of older folks turning around before they reached the end, but I was able to navigate to the top 5 months pregnant with a 1 year old in a backpack so it's certainly manageable."

    "A hidden gem right around the corner from Devil's Lake. Some hiking required, and be prepared to get your feet a little wet, but it's well worth the effort"

    "To really enjoy this place, you're going to get wet and dirty climbing boulders. Cool water fall at the end."

    "Great hiking, it's a little bit wet in spots. Bring some waterproof boots for the kids. Adults with good balance can make it to the very end of trail. "

    "Beautiful, quiet, and peaceful. The trail ends but it's fun to hike back to the waterfall. Just be prepared to climb over some rocks and get a little muddy and wet!"
