Great Canyon hike. Water fall at end of the Canyon still covered in ice. It's early March but shorts and hiking sneaks were all you needed. Nice to be out of the snow down here in GJ!

This is an awesome hike! We did it today, after a day full of rain yesterday, so the runoff was very substantial. It was beautiful! A definite must-do when the water is running!

Was a really unexpected surprise. They had me at "waterfall"... Easy enough hike, lots of changing terrain and geological eye candy. Saw many rabbits, lizards, snakes, and deer. Continued on past the first waterfall for a bit, but storms were coming, so I headed back.

I hiked to the 1st waterfall in late March 2015. It is an easy to moderate hike and when I was there the creek bed had water in it so be prepared to be a little wet. Beautiful views and a nice canyon walk. The steps going up to the right past the 1st pool are quite steep but doable. I did not go past the 1st waterfalls as the terrain was a little rougher than I had shoes for. It took about 2 to 2.5 hrs in and out. 3 miles total. Park at the Devils Kitchen parking just past the ranger station on The Colorado National Monument. Keep right on the trail at the south end of the parking lot. Have fun! Bring lots of water :)

Fun day hike. The trip to the pool is very easy and seems to see a lot of use. continuing on to the first fall is a little harder but nothing an ambitious beginner can't do. At the first fall if you wish to continue onto the second there's a face of slick rock that's a workout but after that the trail opens up again and it pretty easy going for another mile. worth the extra time to go to the second fall as its much less traveled. Done in late march on a nice day and the temp. was great. Definitely a trail I will do again and recommend
