Lovely trail that follows rushing water up a canyon with nice aspen stands. There were a few mountain bikers on the trail when we were hiking it, but it seems a little dicey to hike if there are dirt bikers riding it. The listing has since been updated, but it used to say it was under 4 miles out and back. The trail actually goes almost 8 miles until it hits the continental divide/monarch pass trail. Wrote All Trails support after bumping into a lady at the trail head who looked concerned and said her kids were hiking on it way longer than she had expected. All trails quickly updated it to the full 13.5mi total out and back that it should be if you take it all the way to the CDT. Thanks AllTrails support! :)

Trail to mt Cutler is lined with very cool rock formations once you near the top. definitely worth it!

Absolutely beautiful hike. It’s fairly moderate and rolling for the first two thirds, then an uphill climb. If you reach what seems like a fork, take the trial that leads away from the river. It’s quiet, somewhat shaded, and so peaceful. Would definitely do again. Trail ends at the bridge.

This trail is a well kept secret. the trail itself gets pretty narrow, but on the way up you'll pass several interesting areas, like the water treatment facility and abandon mine cart tracks. The hike itself was fairly leisurely and I enjoyed the views. Looking forward to doing this one again in autumn!

I hiked 4 miles on this beautiful trail - good surface, not technical, and not too steep for the first 2 miles. Follows a creek, so there was water for the dogs. Lots of shade. I went early on a Saturday morning and by 10:00, there were several other people on the trail and groups of mountain bikers.

No cow patties as reported in a review from 11 months ago. Loved this hike. Lots of wild flowers, Valley and Mountain View’s. The Bush Creek is viewed from above and you gradually descend to the bottom of the trail which meets the creek. Started the hike at 8 a.m. almost no one on the route, no bugs and no blazing sun for us.

Short hike to the falls. You can park on the main road and there are two additional small lots closer to the trailhead. The hike is short enough we found it easier just to park in the main lot and hike up. The hike to the falls is pretty rocky. More climbing then I expected given the reviews. For anyone used to hiking this won’t phase you, but if you’re not a hiker just know you will get a little out of breathe. We saw several people taking breaks. I would defiantly recommend continuing on towards the lake as we found this part of the trail much better. Less people, less rocky, and beautiful views. We turned around at the river crossing which was maybe a mile or so past the falls. Our dogs don’t handle heat that well so unfortunately we couldn’t push on to the lake. I should mention it was pretty buggy. Lots of flies, some biting, which didn’t bother us as much as the dogs.

Beautiful views. Brought my 6 and 8 year olds and they did great. There are 4 or 5 narrow spots with steep drop offs, but as long as your kids listen and follow directions they will be fine. But, if you have kids that tend to run ahead or don’t listen well, then you might want to skip this one. Mostly uncovered sunny trail but areas of shade to find a spot to take a break if needed.

Took my dogs, very pretty, fairly easy trail. Falls was beautiful. Trail has everything, great photos of wildflowers, mountains cross the way. Nice restroom at head of trail.

Great trail to become acclimated as it is short. Saw a family trying to hike this in flip flops and that is not smart . The trail is rocky but the waterfall view is spectacular.

Has some decent wildflowers but this trail is obviously a place where locals walk their dogs and ride their bikes. Not much to it but the views of the valley are good and it’s very accessible from Hwy 135.

Short hike to the falls. You are standing above the falls looking down. Nice for those not able to hike more than a couple miles. The trail is a little rocky. If you have the time, continue on to Copper Trail and on to the lake, which is an additional 4-5 miles (one way).

Not sure what the fuss is all about. granted we stopped at falls because we were just looking for a short hike after hiking all morning elsewhere. I would call this more of a moderate trail due to all the loose rocks and it has a pretty steady climb. Not hard, but i wouldn't take grandma or anybody not used to hiking. I guess I expected to be closer to the falls rather than looking at them from 300 yards away down a cliff. An ok hike but there are much better trails. Maybe if you keep going it gets better.

Love it! My husband and I chose this as our first hike with our 6 month old baby in a backpack...definitely worth it! Falls at the end we’re gorgeous.

Quick, easy hike with stunning views!

Thank you.

Awesome trail for a recent Colorado transplant from Tennessee. Not super difficult but the payoff in mountaintop views, y’all - Just do it. We also did the Muscoco trail in the same trip, and totally recommend this method as they are both super rewarding and super manageable. Got there just before 9:00 am on a Saturday and parking was already getting pretty hard to find, so keep that in mind. Well maintained trails. Gorgeous views. And only 15 minutes from the city. We will be back!

Nice hike with beautiful views throughout. Although it’s pretty easy there are still some sheer drop offs and slippery rocks so be careful and don’t take it for granted. Nice spot at the top to take in the views. I enjoyed this quick hike.

Great trail for a lowlander! Would also be a good trail for a barefoot runner. Some elevation change but no really steep hard hills.

only the interference with motorized bikes and mtn bikes - they FLY down - forces this hiker to give the trail a less-than-5-star rating. it's gorgeous. and it goes and goes - the 3.6 mile length posted here seems arbitrary. we went to the point where the trail crosses the creek (5 miles?) and saw no marker along the way. did see plenty of beaver ponds, aspen stands and wildflowers. in this season of extreme drought, this trail feels like Eden.

Awesome scenic view at the top! 7 and 10 year old kids did great. Family friendly.

Hiked a little over 8 miles round trip. Starts on gravel road past the house. Once you get to the big bridge about four miles up I recommend turning back, unless you just want to hike longer. There is no real end to the hike from what I gather going so far and other reviews. We went a ways past the waterfall/bridge and it’s a pretty steep incline. It’s a pretty trail and places to stop along the river. The trail is a little overgrown in areas, but we wore shorts since it was July and were fine. You’re in the shade a lot.

Beautiful easy, short hike with great views. Did it in 45 minutes with plenty of stopping and chatting with other hikers.

beautiful falls but keep on going to the lake if you have time. My GPS kept taking me to Judd Circle, a street in Crested Butte, so just put in Gothic Road and follow to Gothic and you'll find it no problem. Pack water shoes a couple of creek crossing nothing difficult but if you don't want wet socks take your water shoes to walk across.

easy hike if you get into town late, beautiful flowers and a nice creek to put your feet in at the end.

This is an easy and beautiful trail. We do it every time we are in CB. Definitely bring bug spray and sunscreen in summer.

Super short and easy hike in a beautiful setting

Great trail for a quick hike near Colorado Springs! I would probably start earlier in the day rather than later, as parking tends to fill up pretty fast - we drove up and down the road by the trailhead a couple of times before we caught somebody leaving to get a parking space for a 10:30 A.M. hike. Easy trail, beautiful views, and anyone from medium age kids to adults will enjoy. I say medium age kids, because a couple of areas of exposure might make those who aren't wild about keeping an eagle eye on little ones for safety reasons or those who are not crazy about heights nervous. Would like to tack on the side jaunt to Muscoco next time up.

This was a great trail to ride horses and dogs, lots of water to play in. A little busy with mountain bikes going super fast but everyone was very good about stopping for our horses. The dirt road is tough and narrow to get to trail head, but there is plenty of places to turn a horse trailer around once there.

This trail was beautiful, but very poorly maintained. Almost the entire trail has been overgrown, and by the end of the hike, our legs and arms were itchy and scratched. Some parts were so covered in brush, we could barely see our feet. There were also no signs or indication that the trail ended. We hiked a few miles longer without realizing until we checked our Fitbits.
