Great trail! I took the Staunton Ranch Trail all the way to Bugling Elk Trail then to Chimney Rock Trail. It's about 10.2 miles out and back that path instead of the one shown on this trailmap. Even though it snowed a bit two days ago, the trail was clear. There wasn't any ice or snow I had to deal with. The waterfall had some snow/ice in the shade at the base of the falls. I pretty much had the falls all to myself. Beautiful hike! Even though it was pretty windy today, some of the trail was protected from the wind. There's a $7 state park entrance fee if you don't already have a state park pass. Overall great hike and definitely coming back!

Amazing hike!!!!

Love hiking in Staunton State Park, so many trails and it's very beautiful. Even in summer, the trails are not very populated and the further back you get in the park the more magical it is. Those with little to lots of experience hiking will enjoy this area, one of my favorites!

This was a very nice easy trail. We took my 9 yr old and he did the whole 12 miles with no problem. We also stopped and fished at a small lake along the way, caught some nice little guys, catch and release only. Lots of bikers on the trail, but everyone was very courteous. Saw lots of mule deer along the trail. Also saw 3 coyote on the drive there cross the road. There was Porto potties along the trail also, very convenient. Really enjoyed this hike.
