7/1/18: What a beautiful trail! Much of the hike is through pine forests with packed dirt/rock, like many RMNP trails. Amazing views of Long's peak and nearby peaks. The falls is gorgeous. We went another 0.9 miles to Ouzel falls, which was just as nice. For a Sunday, this trail had only light-moderate traffic; crowded right at the end near the falls, where the Wild Basin trail connects. Pretty wildflowers. A great way to get into RMNP for free and (at least in the beginning) avoid the typical tourist traffic.
