went yesterday. this is right off the road, just a few steps up the gully. it's mostly frozen over. so glad I had my spikes on. the trail right now goes right up on top of the frozen creek, so be careful on the ice. very pretty! cant wait to go back in the spring!

Pretty waterfall. Super short hike. It took me longer to cross the road at the S curve than actually hike to the falls. I went left after crossing the road and starting into the trail. I followed the footprints in the snow, and they crossed the river to the left hand side , but you can't get too close on that side, and then they went back and crossed to the right hand side and got really close to the falls. It was a little stressful crossing the snow covered stream and hoping the ice is solid underneath, but I kept using my sticks to make sure it was solid and it was pretty hard. I did a 360 degree StreetView trail here, if you want to view it, it is on Google Earth, and my blog https://www.shaunasadventures.com/2019/01/360-adventure-hidden-falls-and-mill-b.html?m=1.
It was nice to pair it with walking up Mill B trail to the picnic area for the river is so pretty and it is right there.
I have to add that even though this was a nice hike, they don't plow the parking lots so parking is stressful along the road. Also, I had to drive about 10-15 minutes up the road to finally find a safe place to turn around when I wanted to go home. I saw people stuck trying to turn around in not safe spots, and I felt so bad for them, but I was terrified of helping and getting stuck myself. Just FYI.

This is a great little walk. The falls are easy to get to and it is a beautiful area. It is great in the summer and amazing in the winter.

Easy for families, even those with young kids.

I went up here with my family this summer. Only a 2-minute walk to a pretty cool waterfall. Super quick and easy, but super fun too!

Short but falls were hidden so couldn’t view.

Beautiful, easy, leisurely walk.
October 19 packed snow, icy in the morning and muddy in the afternoon.

Packed slush and ice on most of the path today, October 13. Lots of parents and kids slipping around. Some puddles in places. Bring boots with good tread or microspikes. Your feet will get wet this week. Gorgeous and sunny today, a beautiful walk as the lake begins to freeze.

This is an easy hike. Really cool, because easy and good views. Straight forward, but heavily trafficked.

Challenging climb with elevation and sections of rock trail. Completely worth it for the beautiful views! #doinghardthings

I really liked this hike. The fall colors right now are really coming out...alot of yellow. I extended the hike by taking a short side path to the left that led to a really nice overlook of silver lake. I also walked around Twin Lakes after I got up there. Another cool thing that happened is that on my way back after you get to the boardwalk again I saw my first moose. She was hanging out just to the side of the trail munching on leaves. Very scenic trail especially during this time of year. Give it a shot.

I rode this trail along with Flying Dog twice for a total of 13.8 miles each time. Solid & fun trail, but too many beginner riders in my way. If you are an advanced rider, I would not recommend it unless you have a lot of patience for 50% of the riders who very slow.

Hiked this trail in January and it was covered in snow. Amazing hike. We accidentally went up a side path and went the wrong way, which was easy enough to figure out when we saw some skiers coming down it. Stay to the left lol
This hike is super easy even in the snow. Had a blast and the little falls that’s at the end was worth the little hike there.

Really pretty lake, especially with the aspens changing colors. Easy loop, great for kids and we will head back tomorrow with our grandson to head up to Solitude Lake from here.

Pleasant easy stroll. Path is easy enough for strollers and wheelchairs. The boardwalk is fun. So are the Pokestops and gyms ;)

Perfect walk for family with little babies or toddlers!

Checked this out after coming down from Mill B - pretty little area and glad we didn’t just head back to the car, but I would hardly call it it’s own hike.

Beautiful! We did a 2.8 mile loop. Started at the base of Milly up to Twin Lakes. Then hiked back down to Silver Lake and up the road back to Brighton. Steep, but worth it!

We did the shorter version of this hike. (You can start at Milly Lift) The trail is STEEP, but easy enough when it comes to footing. The true gem is when you get to Twin Lake. It's like stepping into a Thomas Kinkade painting. The water is glassy and the trees and foliage make this place a true Haven. If you're a true trooper you'll top it off by jumping in the Lake. Be warned: it's VERY cold.

Super trail with occasional wooden bridges. Both a hikers and mountain bikers trail. I walked with two dogs so had to stop for bikers frequently. Very pretty with a few great view locations. There are a few “watering” spots for dogs along the way.
One final note. Please, if you’re walking or biking with your dog, pick up the poop and bags! I was embarrassed as a dog owner to see the messes included poop collection bags left behind.

Nice easy stroll. Very pretty area. Commonly see moose.

Nice hike. Twin lake located within solitude ski area

I logged a grand total of 0.25 miles to see the falls. And that’s only cause I didn’t recognize the Hidden Falls trail for what it was. I mistakenly took a right and started hiking the Mill B trail. While this is a short little “hike” it was pretty and a fun, quick after work diversion as the sun was setting.

It’s barely a hike but it’s worth it. There are two trails at the head. The left goes to the falls and the right goes to the Mill B North trail. The left trail is very short and you have to walk over some rocks in the creek if you want to get close to the falls. There is also an abandoned mine or something nearby. It’s cool to look at.

I really enjoy this trail and almost always see moose down at the base by Silver Lake. It’s a great hike that my kids and I like to do every Summer. It’s pretty steep at some points but not too long and the lake is fun to hang out by and throw rocks in. One time my kids brought nets and caught tiny minnows. (Then release them).

Such a quick fun nice walk. It was beautiful. Very much enjoyed it.

Short and sweet. Not much of a waterfall this time of year.

Spotted a smaller sized mountain lion on the ridge line just to the right of the falls. There’s a lot of small crevices and small caves in that direction so be very careful if you venture up Mill Creek, which is close to this hike. We alerted authorities but nothing more game of it.

I wouldn’t really consider this a hike, it’s more of an easy getaway if you need a place of zen or relaxation. The falls are beautiful and definitely a good spot for a picnic.
