A very short trail but it leads to a nice waterfall. At the start is a collection of historical photos and information. This is a must see if you are in the Boulder vicinity.

Very short hike to the falls with enough rustic feel to make those just getting into the sport like they accomplished something!! The falls and river below are beautiful and a nice backdrop for the chance to stop and reconnect with nature.

Cool waterfall right off the road. this has a closed sign, but everyone jumps it and will take in the beautiful waterfall.

Great waterfall with minimal hiking. Too bad you have to trespass to see it...

Lovely area with amazing views of the canyon. Boulder Falls was apparently closed for the season? But it didn't say anything about rock climbing.. so we hiked past the falls and got some slightly chilly routes set up in Dream Canyon. Very icy at the start--microspikes recommended. I didn't have them and survived though.

My Fiance (at the time) her son (who has Autism) and I hiked this short trail, it is worth the hike, very busy trail even with thunderstorms threatening the area.

My boyfriend took me here for my birthday. Short but very beautiful, don't be deceived though- it can be very slippery and the fence is not really a fail safe so try and stay to the left. Once you get to the water it's beautiful!

"CLOSED until further notice because of falling rocks." We tried it today 6/7/13 and it's closed. Usually an awesome sight.

One of the easiest waterfalls to access. Watch yourself while walking across the highway.

Easy, quick hike to check out the Falls along road 119.

This is a very short but absolutely stunning hike. Rocks can be very slippy and there's only a small rope fence keeping you and the unforgiving river as two separate entities. When you make it down to the falls the mist from the water is very refreshing. Beautiful pictures and even better memories. Highly recommended!
