ETA Indian Falls

Wondering how long it would take the average person to reach Indian Falls from the Loj? Looks pretty flat and tame, seems you could make pretty good time. How long did it take you folks? Any input is appreciated.

Indian Falls ETA

Depending on hiking conditions, I agree with Neil -- 2 hours is reasonable. That's slightly quicker than a 2-mph pace from the HPIC. The distance is 4.4 miles so that works out about right. If that seems slow, remember that there is about a 1200-foot ascent from Marcy Dam to Indian Falls which tends to affect many of us "average" hikers.

Done it a ton. 2 hours is about average at a comfortable pace.
