Love this hike! Not very hard and not very long. Beautiful

This is a nice kid friendly hike. The lake is nice. This trail would be nice for someone who is visiting that doesn't hike very often. Not much elevation gain and is a short hike to the lake. We hiked this in early March with only a few people in the area,being that this is a campground area I would imagine it is busy in the summer. Nice place.

One of my absolute favorite hikes. The views are breathtakingly beautiful.

Easy trail. Nice place to take out of state visitors. Beautiful waterfalls. Pleasant way to spend a morning.

Awesome hike! It was immensely beautiful up there. The steep trail is pretty challenging but well worth it.

This is my favorite day hike. Anytime we have visitors, this is where I bring them! Instant gratification, as it's beautiful as soon as you start out. I hike it often, & sometimes there's horse poo, other times not. Just depends. I would love to see a moose, but so far haven't seen one here. If anyone else has, please post about it!

Me and my wife took our daughter there and it was beautiful nice easy hike a lot of fun will definitely be doing it again

This is one of my favorite trails! What makes Sioux Charley so great is that there's a mix of everything - the rushing river in a rocky gorge, shaded areas full of aspens and other trees, little bits of meadow, crossing a stream or two, great mountain views, and the peacefulness of the "lake" at the end. It's also an easy hike that most folks can do. It is 7.5 miles roundtrip (not 6.5, as advertised). It took us 3 hours, 40 minutes to complete, but we did stop often to take photos of the beautiful scenery!
