Beautiful wilderness area. Lightly trafficked. Takes between 4-5 hours to complete. Bring 6-8 liters of water and 2,000-3,000 calories.if summiting in winter bring emergency blankets in case you need to bivy at the top.

super easy hike!

Morning and daytime (during cooler weather) hikes here can be extremely busy! I go at night (bring head gear or hand flashlight). When using a flashlight at night please be mindful of either sticking your beam on the trail or just turn it off until they pass (some hikers prefer using the natural moonlight). Don't shine it in their eyes! It's rude and unsafe. Once at the summit, incredible views!

The summit makes you work for it, but the view is worth the effort. Recommend trekking poles for those of you who suffer from weak knees or lungs, like me.

it was great hike.

A great short hike. A little icy in places after snow.

Fairly easy trail with some great views of Golden, Coors plant, and Denver. Lots of interesting rock outcroppings and formations. Also lots of great places to take pictures.

When we went (11-15-2018) there was a fair amount of snow and ice on the trail. The trail is obvious and we had no problem navigating the ice and snow with just our hiking boots.

If you're looking for something to hike in winter without dealing with unknown conditions in RMNP, this is a good alternative.

Beautiful scenery through out the trail and ending with a beach walk back to the starting spot is a great cool down.

Beautiful hike. Challenging, but a lot of fun. The view up top is worth the fierce incline on the way up.

Magical, went all the way to the top, where the waterfall hits the ground, pure heaven ☺️

We did an 6am morning hike and it was perfect not too many people going up or coming down.

Love love love this place! This time of year there were hardly anyone, very peaceful.

Don’t miss the magnificent views here! And don’t be scared by the 252 feet—the elevation gain is less than that.

Incredibly simple trail down to a beautiful waterfall. A bit crowded due to the ease, but would still highly recommend because the waterfall it’s an atypical one.

Awesome hike! Moderately difficult on the way up, easy strolling on the way down. Bring a windbreaker if you can!

Bridalveil Falls trail, Yosemite. Water still falling in November when some of the other Yosemite Falls have dried up. Beautiful, ethereal, don’t miss it. I’ll be coming back in late spring.

Nice hike but only 4 stars as the falls have dried up until snow melt in late spring. I’ll be back then.

Probably the best hike (this and the loop in the north part with several arches). This is a clasic and a must-hike./walk

Tough trail for beginners. Definately a good workout. This is also a very popular trail.

Trail is EXTREMELY crowded on the weekend (even at 7 AM).
Overlooks urban sprawl.
Peak is dominated by an ugly transmission tower.
I think one star is generous.

Done it 3 times. Once in 105 degree weather
It’s a good trail. Not simple, not too hard.

The views are amazing but this is a very busy trail. Going down it definitely seems easy and the trail does go all the way down to the ocean with beautiful views all the way. I definitely didn’t realize how steep it was until I was in the way back up. The smooth sandy trail is too set and carved out for my taste but I assumed it was for safety and preservation I would definitely hike here again.

Very nice on a beautiful day..

Super doke lake, one of the most beautiful someone I meet on the trail said. Once I arrived I was in agreement with him on several accounts.

super great trail! Would definitely recommend snow shoes or at least spikes on your boots though. I just had my yaks on and I sunk a couple times but overall gorgeous hike especially with snow and I will be going back.

Short easy paved trail. The waterfall was non-existent this time.

This was a good, well trafficked hike. We completed this hike in early August and it was very hot. Make sure to bring plenty of water.

This is a pretty quick hike but it can be steep in spots which is great for me since I'm an experienced hiker. The view from the top is amazing.
