Had a great hike with lots of Moose. Easy out and back with nice waterfall to compliment all the wildlife. Highly recommend.

Crowded but so beautiful. Not much of a hike at all.

Beautiful hike! Pretty easy.

Easy hike to see a great waterfall.

Easy to moderate, gets your muscles working but nothing too strenuous. Maybe not the best for young children in some parts for inexperienced/non-local people like myself but still doable!

A quick and easy walk. I’d recommend doing this as a cool down from the Emerald Lake Trail.

Considering no one seems to go here or even know about it, it is worth the 2 minutes off the main road and 3 min walk. Impressive story. Bring swim trucks and shoes and get in or hike to the top and get a cool view

Fun trail - serves as a good warm-up hike. A moose came from the marshy area south of the lake and proceeded to go in the lake to eat on 7/11/18.

Loved this and went a bit farther to get 3-4 miles. Definitely one of the best in the area!

Great hike! The hike was not too long but a nice couple of hours. I would rate it as moderate, but it would probably be easy for locals accustomed to the altitude. We saw several deer as well as a moose and her calf!

Great trail around a beautiful lake!! We saw moose, fish, small rodents and all sorts of cute ducks. It’s a quick and relaxing trail that allows you to take some beautiful mountain photos. I highly recommend to pop in for the .6 quick walk. There are also numerous tables to enjoy a nice snack or lunch.

It is a very small lake but a great spot to eat and go to the bathroom. The lake is beautiful with the mountains in the background. It is extremely flat so it would be very doable for all ages. I don’t know if it is worth venturing out to but it is on your way to a lot of other hikes so it is nice to stop there and look around.

This trail is great. It is quick and easy and the waterfall is breathtaking. You can go up the east or the west side. We went up both but the west side allows you to climb to the top of the waterfall via some “paths” and rocks. Must do in RMNP.

Great easy/ moderate hike! The waterfall was beautiful! Saw 4 moose all together, 2 bull moose on the way up and a mama and calf on the way down! Definitely recommend!

easy and beautiful, a postcard

This is an easy to moderate hike. The creek and the meadow are beautiful and postcard worthy. We hiked in the middle of the day and saw no wildlife unfortunately. The falls are beautiful and worth the distance.

Very beautiful and enjoyable for the family. Kids loved it and it was not to demanding for our 4 and 2 year old.

Fun little hike

13 days ago

Did this hike on 7/2. Got to trailhead at 9:15a, we were 12th car to park so if you’re looking for a trail with no people this isn’t it. That said, beautiful views, moderate distance, little elevation, and waterfalls are worth it all. Saw 7 moose in total, 3 on way out, 4 on way back. Did whole thing with group of 4 (two kids age 9 and 7) in about 3.5 hours with about 20-30min for lunch at waterfall area. And a day after we did Twin Cones! Pretty bushed by end but two great hikes over two days.

Very relaxing hike. Best advice for getting there is to arrive early to Rocky Mountain National Park. The longest part about this trip was waiting to get in. The sights are beautiful and it’s a great easy hike.

Nice scenic stroll. Great views of the surrounding mountains!

Basically, an easy way to find a beautiful view. The TH is right there though so def not a hike. A great place to take photos, and see some wild life in the early morning

Beautiful hike and so much to see along the way! We saw two moose within the first 20 minutes of the hike. There is a gradual incline to the hike in a few spots. You go along a river for quite awhile and it is gorgeous. Cascade Falls at the end is breathtaking. Lots of great spots to have a snack or dip your feet in.

Very easy. Lots of people.

This is an awesome place to bring your kids! It’s fun to walk around the bottom and then try to make it up the sides of the river/waterfall.
