Located in the Lumpy Ridge area of Rocky Mountain National Park, this hike to a scenic waterfall is well graded and relatively easy. The trail is located 3.05 miles from the Cow Creek TH, and there is access to other nearby trails in the first portion of the hike, as well as to backcountry camp site The trail follows Cow Creek, where the first part is through open fields with evidence of elk. Eventually the trail heads into the woods, where it begins to climb in elevation. The falls is reached quickly, and a light scramble on the left side of the falls gives way to an impressive view of the valley behind you. There is limited parking at the TH, which is close to a research facility, so it's best to leave early to ensure a parking space.
