Nice little hike to stretch your legs, after riding in the car FOREVER, before getting to your real hiking destination inside Rocky. Love visiting this little spot. Gets pretty toasty in the summer time. Watch your footing on the slippery rocks near the falls and the loose gravel along the way.

Our family of 15 includes 8 kids under 10. We loved this easy hike that included a nice waterfall 0.3 Miles in and a stream they waded in for 1/2 hour. We could’ve gone further but enjoyed the first stretch. It was perfect for our family.

Easy hike, go early and have trail to yourself and get to meadows beyond the Falls to see the wildlife.

The Falls were beautiful, easy hike up to the Falls. We then continued on for another mile or so, the meadows and river were really nice, with mountain views. We saw moose as well, so be on the lookout for them.

We did this as the last hike of the day after we drove trail ridge road from Estes Park to grand lake. Actually not on trail ridge road but not too far off (15 min). It was a beautiful waterfall and was an excellent cap to great day seeing the Rockies. Definitely the highlight of the day. Easy trail with plenty of parking on Sunday night July 8th at 5pm. Definitely a rocky trail so boots or at least shoes would keep you comfortable hiking this one.

You are able to get to the falls within about 20 minutes. It’s a busy trail, but if you continue past the falls, there is gorgeous landscape and becomes less busy.

This is a great little hike just outside of Grand Lake. We had our 3 young children and they made it to the falls without issues. You can continue on for more spectacular views from the falls. You also get great views of Grand Lake from parts of the trail as well.

We went the last weekend in April, 2018. It was a sunny weekend and so the trail was pretty busy, but still well worth it. It’s a short hike on a National Park quality trail. The falls had lots of water and the rocks were fun to explore. Continue up the trail for stunning meadows!

Beautiful roaring waterfall! The trail was easy and short to get to the falls. Keep going up the trail for a beautiful meadow and stream with mountain views.
