A nice add-on either to or from Rifle Falls. And, yes, there are actually lower and upper falls at the end of this hike. Interestingly, these falls are from the canal that starts at Rifle Falls.

Either the map took me to the wrong place; but this was more like a path to a fishing spot. Beautiful, just not what I had in mind for a trail:)

This is one of our favorites just because it's so short and easy it was one we could do when my boys were 3 and 5. I love the lake also!

Great little hike around the lake and easy for the little ones. We just make our way up to the waterfall and back and the kids love it. The scenery is beautiful!
