This trail gets a little too busy for my personal taste, but the falls are beautiful.

Beautiful hike. It is a solid moderate hike with incline most of the way in as one would expect climbing to the top of the falls. It took us 2 hours in and a little more than an hour down. Trail is nicely maintained although boulders near top are more challenging. Wonderful variety of pine, aspen, and lush green foliage. Bring water. We picnicked after the hike near the lower falls.

Beautiful but more of a overlook then a trail. Good for kids and seniors.
