This hike was difficult when we first moved here, but now that we're used to the elevation, it's not too bad!!

Good quick hike. Gorgeous scenery along the way. Waterfall is more of a trickle at the moment; too dry out.

Great Trail. Ended up only doing a point to point up to the Falls. 2.4 miles. Challenging elevation changes for a new 60 year old hiker. Will return to and do the loop which consists of clockwise trek on Horsetooth Rock, Soderberg, Spring Creek and Horsetooth Falls trails. (4 miles). That was suggested by a park ranger. Not quite sure where the 3 mile loop is described on this page. Immensely enjoyable hike though.
