It was fun for me and my 2 girls.
Nice easy trail, pretty rock, some poison ivy
Nice easy hike.
Great hike to do with the family.
Beautiful trail, easy and relaxing. I went on the weekend, there wasa bit of trail traffic but still very enjoyable. Small national park but very well taken care of, I would definitely go again.
Really beautful and relaxing hike. Nice and easy, lots of families and dogs on the weekend. The scenery is wonderful. We are very fortunate to have this so close!
Great family hike with beautiful views! The kids loved hopping from rock to rock in the canyon and when we crossed paths with a large bull snake along the trail.
This was a wonderful hike with the kids. This is a well shaded trail that offers 2 creek/river crossings. Don't worry this is still kid friendly. The mixture of rushing water, pine trees, and rock formations offers spectacular views. This is probably one of our favorite hikes we have done so far in Colorado.
Very good beginner trail. Great views, creek crossing, slight elevation change. Overall a great experience. The waterfall is off of the Dam Ruins Historic Trail. It connect to this trail at about the halfway point.
Great hike with some amazing views!
