Not so much a hike as it is a very cool scenic walk. You can add some adventure by going down inside the ice caves and playing around amongst the beautiful cascades falls as well.
Great stop on the way to Aspen - more exploring to be done than hiking.
Beautiful trail, especially in the fall. Easy terrain and the triple waterfall at the top is amazing!
Easy and enjoyable trail. Reminded me of hiking in North Carolina.
My husband said it was an easy Trail- I found it to be moderate- from hiking into the forest then checking out the views from the Cascade- awesome
Short easy trail. My boys liked bouldering and exploring the ice caves.
This was an easy trail that featured really cool ice caves, two waterfalls, and a beautiful forest. Very easy hike with superb views and variety in a short distance!
