Cascade Falls is a 7.4 mile heavily trafficked out and back trail located near Grand Lake, Colorado that features a waterfall and is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number of activity options and is best used from June until August. Horses are also able to use this trail.
Took 5.5 hours out and back with my 4 year old son; only carried him about a half mile or so the whole way. Definitely kid friendly. The pine tree aroma filled the air, and the sun was shining. Be sure to bring a day pack with water and snacks. Saw a mule deer on the way back and about a half dozen squirrels. Fresh bear scat was on the trail about 1 mile from the trail head, but I'm sure we made too much noise to see anything up close.
Great hike very very beautiful! I have a bad ankle and did think it was a little harder than "easy" overall very gorgeous. Well worth the pain today
The first mile or so was not as nice as the rest. Saw a mama mule deer and two babies. The greeted us coming and again going out. The falls were okay, if you have never seen one close up you will enjoy.
Well maintained. Mostly double wide. Beautiful scenery. Saw a female moose.
Nice, medium length, relatively easy hike from the Grand Lake area. Watch out for moose and mule deer.
Nice little hike with a reward at the end. First third is fairly exposed to the sun with the forest somewhat diseased, so wear sunscreen. Waterfall is great spot for lunch.
