Beautiful all the way from the trailhead to the falls overlook. I followed the trail a little further as it reaches into the Maroon Bells Snowmass Wilderness.

Really enjoyed this hike, new views of the Blue Mesa.

Easy trail with great payoff taking you up near the base of the pinnacles. Hardly anyone on the trail in mid-November. This will definitely be a place I take visiting friends and family who are not used to higher elevation.

Easy hike with beautiful views!

Very scenic hike with great views of the lakes, pinnacles and snow capped mountains (from the top). Easy to find trailhead right off Hwy 50.

easy hike appropriate for all ages. Enjoyed the drive to the trail more than the trail itself.

Although. The falls are nice, compared to other walks in Colorado, this one is 3/5

Lots of aspens changing colors right now! Beautiful hike, long but not technically challenging.

Great hike, the falls are gorgeous, not much room for viewing but it was fun.

Great trail, steep to the top! Worth it!!!

Short trail, stunning views. Fairly easy with a few steeper spots.

Great ending.

Incredible views and a challenging hike.

Excellent leisurely hike with beautiful views.

fun stuff. beautiful views!

the farther up cc rd 740 you go the better it gets. so if you still want a nice easy 3-4 mike hike, drive up as far as you can (road becomes 4x4 worthy) until the road becomes trails. you won’t be disappointed.

Great hike for families or shorter distances. Took our 4.5 year old and 1.5 year old (in child carrier on back) and they both did great! Trail has a nice climb initially and parts of the trail are pretty rocky. Great views of Gothic Mountain and the overlook of Judd Falls was beautiful. Continue on the trail past Judd Falls and go into Maroon Bells Wilderness (trail also gets easier here). A few mountain bikers coming down the trail in the first 0.5-1 mile of the trail, so be aware.

Fun and easy trail. Great for something quick to do.

Great hike for beginners and to take the kids to. Gets a little rocky but doable. amazing views of Mt. Gothic! You don't really head down into the falls, it's actually an overlook. But beautiful nonetheless.

Great hike. Awesome views of both the canyon and the San Juan mountains. Easy hike, finished in about 30 minutes.

cow trail. had to bail. sucks..

Although we didn't see the Warner Brothers and their sister Dot, we still enjoyed the hike out to Warner Point, which has great views of both the canyon and back towards the towns down the valley. Free informative pamphlets are available at the trailhead that talk about what your seeing along the way, like beautiful pinion pines, animal signs, and of course Black Canyon of the Gunnison. It's a little hilly in some spots, but I was fine just walking the trail in sandals. Be sure to stay hydrated if you go on a summer day!

Easy trail, but has a decent amount of gravel and rock. I expected to be closer to the falls in the end but it is still a spectacular overlook

The trail itself was unremarkable, and there are better views of the canyon (Painted Wall, etc.) back towards the visitors center along the main road. BCOTGNP is definitely a views-based park, not a hiking one, but this didn’t feel worth it.

Great hike! The map will get you to the trail head, but there is no parking there. Start the hike at the Nordic center, you can park there. Lots of forest cover so it is a cooler hike.

Great views, easy hike, short and quick.

We weren't as enthusiastic about this hike as some of the other reviewers, but it was enjoyable. If you have time on the north rim and want to see the canyon from another vantage point, certainly bust this hike out. But, knowing what I know now, I wouldn't have disappointed if we wouldn't have had time for it. It was short and pretty easy, so I'll give it that. If you've done the pull-out view points and want more, this would be the next option.

Great views! Sadly, weather stopped us about 300 feet from the summit.

the trail up Kebler pass is much shorter, about 4-5 miles but greater inclination. awesome for mtb with a great up hill and an even better down. highly recommend .definitely on the harder side so I wouldn't reccomend for a beginner.
