This was a pleasant hike....views out to Longs Peak and Meeker were great. It was fun to see all of the rock formations. Wildflowers were just starting to peak. The falls were running all along the creek- river flow had peaked. Trail toward the actual falls was tricky with the flood damage....overall worthwhile!

Nicely maintained trail. The best vistas are at the beginning of the trail. Did this at the end of April and the Black Canyon Creek was barely flowing. Kind of odd, possible early/late snow melt? I noticed on someone else's track that they made the same mistake I did. Where the Y split is on the track isn't quite clear where the trail splits off. It's a junction of a road and a trail. Naturally you assume that the trail is the way to go, but no, it's the road you want to follow. It changes back into a trail about a 1/4 mile up. For best water flow I imagine you have to do this later, like mid May maybe. This trail is in Rocky Mountain National Park
