We did Sundance Canyon trail and really enjoyed the trek. Weather was cold and light rain in Mid July. While the Park was crowded the trail was not. We found the trail to be moderate not strenuous.

This trail is wonderful for the scenery - the views are amazing and walking alongside the creek is relaxing as you listen to the water run.

The first part of the trail is paved, so super easy and flat. The real gem of the trail starts when the pavement ends. It's a quick and easy loop that won't disappoint.

A perfect spot to take a quick stop to eat is at the look out just before you head into the downward portion of the trail.

Watch for beautiful flowers, fungi, and birds.

Such a lovely walk!

This one was ok, pretty flat for most of it. Kids would have had more fun doing it on their bikes.

Beautiful walk! The waterfall at the end is great, you can climb right up it.

Great little hike. If you want to miss the crowd it's beat to start from the cave and basin around 0900. I saw absolutely nobody else on the trail until the trip back.

This trail is paved until the falls. It is great for biking, going for a run & even runs along a horse trail. Once tot he falls, there is a 1.5mi trail that wraps up & through the the canyon before depositing you back onto the paved trail. If going in the early seasons be sure to have cleats because there is still snow & ice on the trail. As a side note, I came across two squirrels mating on the paved trail...I think they were just as surprised to see me as I was them.
