NO parking at Trailhead. You have to park about a quarter of a mile away from the trailhead down at the bottom of the dirt road. Though this is a very nice trail. can be easy to get confused on where to go on some parts of the trail. Very good workout though.

Old Cat. goes up the left side of the falls, and will bring you to the Garden of Eden. Not for the beginner hiker, basically straight up. But it's a cool & a different way to explore the falls. Pups will have a tricky time, but if you help them up they'll make it!

Yaktraks (snow cleats) are a must on this trail right now. Its passable, but with proper gear, I saw lots of people out there without them today, and with all that ice combined the switchbacks, I would not suggest doing this without snow cleats.

Moderate trail and beautiful waterfall exploring!

Great, enjoyable trail. Lots of switchbacks to start out, but then it levels off at the meadow. Would recommend microspikes. Went without any and definitely slipped around on some snowpack in the meadow.

Great trail, challenging on the way up. Much easier coming down. Lots of switchbacks and light scrambling.

It's not a stroll in the park. It's a steep upwards climbing and it's pretty snowy and icy in winter. But it's a good challenge. It's best to leave your car at the beginning of Hondo Ave as there'll be no parking spaces up ahead.
In spite of the fact that it says 'dog on leash' I was attacked by two pit bulls unleashed near the top. Thankfully I had a dog repellent to ward them off. There should be a park ranger patrolling for silly people like that.

Great hike, views from South Catamount Reservoir were incredible. Great way to spend Christmas Eve. Unfortunate to have to extra mileage from parking in town, but the walk down belvedire had some really cool houses.
