    The trail, which is just over three miles one-way, takes 1-2 hours to reach the falls, depending on your pace. The trail is pretty mellow, without significant elevation gain until you approach the end of the hike. However, once you've reached the falls, you may want to explore the area a little bit, or just sit and enjoy the falls for a while. It's a great place for a picnic!

    Two hours is probably plenty of time for most folks to make it out to Emerald Lake and back to the trailhead, but you may want to add more time to soak in the views, relax by one of the lakes, or add an extension to your hike.
