Short but sweet hike. We had been up since 5am hiking around the area and made this our last stop. Easy you get to see the falls from both the top and bottom as well as a few small caves. The drive from Glenwood Springs to this hike was almost just as lovely!

Good day hike. There are caves and the waterfall is beautiful. Went when it was slightly raining and it was a good time to go since the park wasn't as full.

A pretty easy hike. I went about 4pm on a Wednesday and had plenty of time to see everything. The falls are caves were very cool. It was kinda crowed even at that time.

The falls are nice and unquestionably the highlight of the trail, though you don't have walk more an 30 seconds from the parking lot to see them. The trail itself takes you up above the falls, which gives a decent view. The caves are a unique feature, but the rest of the trail isn't anything too special.

We just did the Coyote Loop because we've been away from hiking for awhile and not yet acclimated to the altitude. It was a great hike, easy if your lungs are used to the O2 tension. Worth it otherwise. Steps on steep sections. Benches at several spots. Waterfall is really cool (three separate cascades) and the hike to them is not more than about 200 yds. from parking area and mostly flat to the base of falls.

Beautiful falls. Definitely climb behind the falls and up to the top. Some kids were hot boxing the caves...but i guess thats colorado. make sure to bring a head lamp or strong torch if you want to go in the caves.

Easy trail, add Bobcat trail for a removal from the crowd that gather at the base of the falls, which are immediate at Trail heads. Camping sites and simple bathrooms nearby, does require a state park access: $7.
A lovely place and easy hike. The caves are fun; bring a flashlight or just use your phone.
