I loved this easy walk marked by glorious stands of aspen, lots of rushing water, a lovely bridge, fox, and other wildlife. Easy drive, easy parking, but get there early; the trail gets crowded and you have to take a shuttle. Lovely flowers and mountain views.

this isn't a trail so much as a 4x4 road that leads to other trails. the rocks are all different sizes which means you have to look at your feet the whole time and not the scenery. the road is so wide that you aren't really in the trees and private property everywhere means you have to stick to the road only. the waterfalls are pretty though.

Great trail a steady incline all the way the only complaint is the trail is full of rocks.

love love love this trail, highly recommend taking far left trail at fork and following the small path along the river. There are rocks that you'll have to climb, but I'm not in shape at all and managed just fine. The beauty just continues and continues!!

Amazing hike with beautiful creek, waterfalls, lake and wild flowers! Be prepared to wet you sneakers, still plenty of snow on top of the trail.
