Awesome hiking trail! Beautiful waterfall! Total time from trailhead, lunch at the falls, and back was 3 1/2 hours. Difficulty Mild/Moderate on a well defined trail.
A great hike for family and dog with a picnic at the frozen falls 4 days ago. Some snow packed areas but trail was well defined. Trail to the lake was too snowpacked. I will try again next month to get to the lake.
I did this trail horseback with the curtacy of My. Princeton Stables. The scenery was amazing!! once we got to the waterfall it was a little iced over but still breath taking and relaxing -March-
Beautiful hike, especially the ridge near the beginning of the hike, the meadow about halfway through, and the waterfall at the end. The trail on to Brown's lake was closed at this time.
First time snowshoeing on 1/28/17. Awesome trail. No one had broke trail so it was harder than I expected but worth the challenge. The falls were frozen but the views were beautiful. I loved the GPS connected with Alltrails very accurate and helped me stay on course. I'll definitely be back in the summer.
One of the best hikes we've ever done. It's pretty challenging at first but totally with the extra effort. Coming back in September to see the leaves change next year
Awesome trail, highly recommend hiking to the waterfall!
Nice hike& lovely waterfall. Felt pretty steep in the beginning but leveled off. Easy walk down/back.
We hiked this Oct. 16th and it was a great experience. The trails are clearly marked, and about the time you start to think "how much further' - the falls are probably another 40 minutes away. We were asked this question by a group on the way down and I told them that they would come across 2 mileage signs and cross three bridges before coming to the falls. It is definitely worth the hike to the falls. They're spectacular. San Isabel is one of my favorite areas to hike.
Fantastic trail! The beginning is really tough but it's totally worth it. The falls are beautiful as well as the views on the way. Not sure why someone wouldn't be able to find it, this was one of the most clearly marked trails I have been on. There are a ton of off leash dogs though that's the only complaint.
Beautiful and peaceful. Limited hikers on the trail. Most of the trail is tree covered. There are signs posted leading you to the trail. The hike to Brown Lake very little traffic with some steep inclines.
Couldn't find the trailhead.
this is a great hike! beautiful.
