From Rifle, go east on I-70 to No Name exit 119 (about 30 miles) Take the exit, turn left and continue .5 of a mile to the parking area and trailhead. The trail is also known as the No Name Trail

I wrote a post yesterday but I guess someone didn't want me saying the trail is 8 plus miles long one way.

Really liked this trail, much of which runs running alongside a broad, rapidly flowing stream with lots of small cascades. Primarily a singletrack trail, we had solitude and didn't see anyone else that morning until halfway back. Complaints about being overgrown seem overstated, though certainly there were places the brush was slightly overhanging the path. (I appreciated having long pants.) Elevation gain was a consistent, low incline throughout the hike and not problematic at any point. The waterfall at the end was not majestic like Hanging Lake, but was still a beautiful setting with rushing water.

Beautiful scenery, many places to stop alongside the river and put your feet in the cold water. Good workout, and a way less crowded alternative to Hanging Lake (unless you like hiking with a herd of people). IMHO the views and river were just as pretty and more enjoyable in solitude.

This is a great waterfall river trail.
Parking completely sucks but there is a beautiful rest area at no name, but this trail is weird because there is a home at the start, but don't be fooled the trail goes passed the house. The river makes everything around it lush and green, easy to stay cool close to the river. Awesome camping spots. A consistent low incline but totally freak worth it.
