Ascent Trip Report

Hiked up the Mist Falls to the second Falls Overlook. STEEP stairs and trail. 600+ stairs in a very short time. Hot day in the valley. Parked at Visitor's Center and took a shuttle out to the TH. STEEP uphill with Agnes and Eileen - but beautiful. Regrouped at the bridge and walked another mile or so up to the overlook. Had lunch with some very friendly squirrels who were not ashamed of coming as CLOSE as they possibly could to us. Very careful hike on the slippery steps on the way down. Grateful for my hiking boots and the rubber soles, as slipping would not be good. Narrow - had to be courteous to other hikers - lots of people on the trail. The running falls were BEAUTIFUL!
