Did this trail yesterday afternoon as the aspen are beginning to peak. Absolutely breathtaking views, especially behind you once you get past about the halfway point to the falls. Falls are nice too but the yellowing aspen steal the show right now!

Amazing falls! Well worth the trip! We are from Indiana (sea level), got to Vail on Wednesday, hiked on Thursday, it was phenomenal! If you aren't used to the altitude, take water and go slow, but the falls are well worth the trip! (hiked on 09/21/2017)

Gorgeous! Leaves are changing and you walk through many Aspen Groves.

I hiked to the falls on a beautiful September day. The aspens were in full color, and the sun was shining. It took me about an hour from the parking lot to the falls at a very moderate pace. It's easily done in 2 to 2 1/2 hours, including a brief break for snacks.

Awesome hike and great views. Would definitely recommend an early start if you are going all the way to the lake. Beautiful aspens and well groomed trails.

Beautiful trail. Definitely some steep and rocky sections, so be prepared. Minimal parking at the trailhead, so consider parking at the bottom of the road. Adds a few hundred feet of elevation and 0.5 miles to the hike.

We did this hike last weekend, Sep 10th and it was beautiful! My husband carried our 10 month old son ( in a Osprey pack the whole way ) We just did the hike to the falls and back about 8 miles round trip, now one of our favorite hikes! For the most part the trail is moderate and is a steady but not steep incline. There are only a hand full of steep sections. We felt the hike was well worth it, a beautiful hike the whole way. I recommend doing it in the morning around 9-10 and not on a weekend if you can. We did it on a Wednesday at 10am, never saw a single person the whole way up, but on the way back down passed groups every 10-15min heading up.
