Fantastic Trail close to town!

I hiked in snow from the boardwalk all the way to the point where I turned around. Didn't quite make it all the way. Lost a nice fleece-lined wool hat along the way.
It was so quiet and not too difficult. Was exactly what I was hoping for.

This trail is beautiful! Great views of the creek, meadows and neighboring mountain sides along the way to the waterfall. Easy from the start but moderate for the last half of the trail. Be prepared to get your feet wet as you cross the creek a couple of times. Dog friendly and she loved it! Will definitely be back!

Great local trail. Not much elevation gain, but there is a great waterfall at the end. The waterfall is small, but you can walk up to the two little ponds created by the waterfall. This is a great trail for running. It is also great for dogs as there is water the whole way. There is some parking further up, past the discovery trail and such, but I recommend getting your miles and just starting from the first trailhead. Good shade, and good vegetation.

Trail is right outside Winter Park. I would rate this trail as easy and then moderate for the last few hundred yards. No real vista to speak of, however there are several meadows along the way that are just gorgeous. Trail ends with a waterfall. This is a great trail for dogs, as there is water the whole way.

Super close to Winter Park which was nice, we didn't want to drive far. A four hour round trip for us, perfect little venture. The first mile was a little boring, a tease because you could hear the river but not see it. The last two miles were great near and over the river and small streams. Great waterfall at the end. The whole trip was A pretty forest green. We will come back with our dog next time, running water, shallow enough not to be scary. :)
