Awesome hike! Went up in November 2018, trail was pretty icy / snowy but could hike it in sneakers (did a lot of butt slides on the way down). The fire tower is well worth the hike and then the climb when you reach it.

Getting to the trail head was very very bumpy and slow moving in some spots.

amazing winter hike. snow was loosely packed, not icy. I hiked in just boots with good grip. get out here when the snow is fresh, it's stunning!

Excellent hike!

Hiked this trail 4 days ago. It was icy with light snow coverage. I used micros which helped a great deal. The frozen waterfall was beautiful!! A great winter hike. I look forward to doing this hike in the spring.

Agree with comment below.

Beautiful easily accessible snowshoe trail. Went midday on a perfectly sunny day with my mom. We took the uphill portion to the hut slowly but enjoyed coming up through the pine forest and then finding views closer to the hut. Trail easy to follow. Only saw a few other snowshoe groups on the way up and then a handful of people at the hut backcountry skiing. We didn’t much past the hut but trail continued to be well designated. Highly recommend.

Fun hike near Denver. With half the population of the front range. Parking can fill up early.

Easy hike near Denver. Falls aren't awesome. Worth a trip to get some Vitamin N.

Beautiful trail, but it’s really easy to miss the falls. Look for the sign!

Upper bowls were nice skiing. Skinned all the way up. The drainage is nice skiing all the way down.

Light snow on trail, very quiet, the ice of the falls had a blue hue. Great short hike through tall pines sprinkled with snow.

Hiked on Christmas Day and maybe encountered a dozen other people total. The hike is simply beautiful and challenging enough to make me feel really satisfied! The trail is very icy (dirt covered) in many places but other than that, it was clear. The falls were incredible and I’d recommend the hike!

I wish I had brought my micros so I could walk up the frozen river/streams but wouldn’t have needed them for the trail today.

12.19.18 - Drove all he way there and found the gates to he parking lot closed. Hoping I make it back in the future when the gates are open and can actually give better rating.

super fun, short snowshoeing trek! we saw an amazing sunset!

Frozen waterfall was cool.. A couple slick spots but didn't need yakkies today. Would be interested to see this in spring. No big vistas.

long hike but well worth the veiw from the top did it in sept had nice weather

I went to hike this yesterday morning/early afternoon (12/7/2018) and the road we came in on was closed about 6 miles out. I did not try to loop around to the west nor did I head back east to go over and up and see if that pass was open. Beware.

Love this trail. A good steady incline up, beautiful buttery downhill to a nice creek flow off of the falls. Beautiful in winter, can’t wait to head back in the spring.

Snowshoes to the top today, great conditions!

We snowshoed up to Broome Hut on 12/1/18. The trail was well packed for the first half mile. Someone went up without snowshoes and was post-holing which messed up the trail. It took us 1.5 hours to get to the hut and 30 minutes to get back down.

There were a handful of people at the hut. It was great to stop and have a snack before heading down. We'll be back to continue the hike up to Twin Cones.

Pleanty of incline and finishes that with stairs that seem to go on, on. You are rewarded with views that go on forever & an old fire tower that is very cool to see. Very nice hike with many photo opts. Did this hike in July/18 and it was very busy but perfect weather.

Perfect for snowshoeing! We only made it up to the hut due to strong winds and snow. But is about a mile in. Snow shoes and even ski googles are needed if you want to summit.

Hiked this trail on 11/10. Like the other two posts mentioned the trail is significantly covered in ice and snow with a decent amount of foot traffic. Be prepared to slide and have a few good wipeouts. The views along the trail are spectacular and I’m looking forward to going back again in the spring, summer and/or fall when the aspen leaves are changing. And yes the 30min drive on the dirt road is pretty rough, but if my Sentra can do it then all other vehicles can also.

Hiked this trail 11/10/18. The 9 mile road, like others mentioned, is pretty rough but it was well worth the hike! There’s plenty of great viewing spots on the way to the lookout station. The only thing I’d note is that it was pretty icy when I went. Many people (myself included) were sliding and took some bad falls. However, if you’re prepared for the icy conditions it’s well worth the drive for the 360 views of mountains.

Some of the best views from any trail in Colorado. Before I got to the trail head I had a bear run across Rampart Range Road in front of me, he was a light brown color. Hiked on 9 Nov 18, started about 0900, temp was 27 degrees at the trail head. Trail is almost totally covered in snow and ice, wear crampons or micro spikes so you don't fall. The stairs to the top are mostly snow/ice covered, best hang on tightly on the way up and down.

Yesterday started out with crampsons thinking that was enough however as soon as I got to the hut I found that snow shoes would definitely be needed I’d like to do it again

Enjoyed it with kids, about 2,5 hours up/loop/down! Very nice place!
