The definitive Boulder workout. One of the first to try if you are only here for a short while!

We did the hike in the afternoon on 11/10. Highly recommend wearing spiked boots. It definitely got slick after the 3rd bridge. The trek back was even slippery, with all of us wiping out at least once.

Like said with previous reviews the scenic trail was closed but I had my skates with me so I put those bad boys on and took a few laps around the lake . Be careful there are some soft spots. 11/12/18

This hike will convince you to move to Colorado! Have completed it several times and it still never gets old. Bring a couple of liters and crush it. If you do it in March, prepare to post hole for six hours.

Beautiful views! We hiked it yesterday and the hike to get up there is a little rough but so worth it! It gets pretty icey so be sure to wear proper shoes.

Went on 11/10 - scenic trail was closed but the lake is frozen and lots of people out playing hockey. Was fun to watch. Looked like other trails were open but very muddy/snowy. Sign said road will close 11/15

Great trail and beautiful views.

Such an incredible view. Need the right winter gear and shoes that can handle steep icy rocks at this time of year but well worth it!

How fun to find this trail so close to town. Loved running to the upper fall and letting the crowd at the bottom thin out. Once back at the bottom I was able to bask in the beauty of the fall.

Amazing fog this am with snow flakes. Trails dry with friendly people and amazing views. Happy Thursday m8y's Oiiiii

Husband and I did hiked this lake on 11/8. The beginning of the trail was paved road then rocky and about half way it’s was icy. But with spikes, it’s very doable. We saw some people with regular shoes, they were struggled but they made it to the lake with us. There are 7 bridges that you’ll cross. The last stretch of the trail was a bit of an incline but don’t let the height intimidate you. Once you’re passed the incline, you are there!! It’s a must when you’re in Colorado!!!!

The water color was beautiful! The trail is pretty steep, but it’s short enough that we didn’t have any trouble.

Moderately strenuous climb that is beautiful and well worth the view. Lots of high steps can be tough on the knees. Went today and it was snowy and really icy, wouldn’t recommend without snow friendly footwear.

Was there on Nov 1st and the waterfall was flowing. There were a good amount of people out so if you like solitude, this isn't for you. It was pretty steep, but short. Took about an hour up, and the same down. It seems easy because it isn't long, but definitely has a steep grade. Note: It was much colder with more wind in the parking lot than in the canyon.

Lots of steps up (45 min) but worth the reward. Easy hike down.

Great views of Boulder. Decently trafficked by people and easy to find the trail. Around the peak it does get pretty rocky so good shoes and sure footing is highly recommended. Haven’t hiked in awhile and did the loop in a 1 1/2 hours with a longer break at the top.

Gorgeous trail. Strongly disagree with the "hard" rating-- it's difficult for a relatively short period of time, so I think it's more in the moderate category. It was actually rated moderate on alltrails until about a month or two ago.. not sure why it was changed.

This trail is short, energizing and has better views than some of the even harder trails in Boulder.

A very difficult climb but manageable with plenty of stops along the way. Once you make it to the top you're greeted with amazing views. Definitely a top spot to visit.

Stunning

Pretty intense trail but even not used to high elevations (we live at 400ft) my whole family was able to do this. We had a 6 and 7 year old at the time. This was my kids first real hike and they still talk about it 1 1/2 years later. Absolutely beautiful!

If you are going to do this hike as a loop , I would recommend going up Mount Sanitas and returning Sanitas Valley .

Great hike.

Good workout going up to the upper falls. The trail is a little rough and rocky at times, but the views are stunning and well worth the effort. It started snowing at the upper falls, so we didn't continue on to the lake. Maybe next time.

Great local hike. Lots of doggos on the trail enjoying the best of life.

One of the most spectacular experiences one can have, especially in the fall!

Hiked the road on 10/27/18 as it was closed to vehicles. Needless to say it was a calve killer but worth it!

Fun trail for a quick hike. Clean and not too tough.

This is a great little hike. It’s pretty steep and gets the heart pumping. There are great views of Boulder along the way, and spectacular views from the top. Definitely worth the climb.

One of three most beautiful places I've been!

The first trail I ever did in Colorado. Review is for a summer hike. Steady climb with a good amount of privacy for such a busy park. It can seem long. Saw a lot of people coming up to backpack and stay the night before heading back down. Flies were a pest, but the beauty of the nature is more than a remedy to their peskiness.

Loved this hike! Beautiful waterfalls! Good for a short but moderately difficult day hike.
