Easy paved stroll down to the waterfall. About a half hour taking it all in, just gorgeous. Bathroom was quite stinky, but welcome after listening to water. I feel we got lucky at scoring a parking spot at the top! Great time!

I really enjoyed this hike. It was not overly technical and was easy on my sore legs. There were plenty of dogs on the relatively crowded trail. Quite a few places for photo opportunities along the way. I chose to take a dip in the very frigid falls, but was extremely refreshing over a hot LDW.

Pretty trail. We hiked in the rain, but it was still very peaceful and beautiful walking through the changing aspen leaves. The waterfall at the end was satisfying goal.

Lovely hike. The first bit is easy, downhill to the falls. From there it is uphill. I did this in the Fall- wonderful colors.
