Wow! Trail was not too bad. Got steep about the last mile as you are nearing Gilpin Lake.

Such a great experience! Scary crossing the causeway, but an adrenaline rush for sure. Definitely longer than 10.1 miles. We logged nearly 14 miles for this trail.

drove to it so cant rank the hike but it was a refreshing swim/soak/stretch.

totally freaking awesome... dont wuss out 1/2 way bc you get to dip your head into cold water at the top of the upper falls. bring water/snack

long but awesome. saw a grizzly so bring blow horn or pistol. bring lunch. jumped into the snow melt lake and lasted 5 seconds but refreshing.

Very easy walk. The moderate rating comes from the trail heading to the bottom is down and to get back to the car it is up. Beautiful falls. Did not go to the lake which is another 5 mile hike with an elevation difference of 2400 ft.

We saw a bear cross the road in front of us on the drive up to the trail head. Trail is easy and has great views

This trail gets a little too busy for my personal taste, but the falls are beautiful.

Great trail, lots of bear markings so be watchful! Didn't make it quite to the end as weather was turning ominous. Would highly recommend it!

Was a nice, easy hike. Was a beautiful day to enjoy with our 2 Boxer dogs. And bonus of a leash free lake that they got to enjoy.
