Our whole family took this hike and loved it. Peaceful and scenery is always beautiful here in Colorado.

Best to do this late spring, early summer, when the water is running. Still a beautiful trail though. Not too long, and fairly easy.

Very fun, watch for muddy areas and rocks. The views are priceless and the trail is amazing. It can be hard to stay on trail, but it is never too far away and easy to jump right back on

Easy trail, pool of water is a little stagnant this time of year.

Another great hike for kids. Plenty to look at on the way. Saw a rattlesnake on the trail one time. Very rare.

Nice trail, went in late June water wasn't running. Not a lot of shade recommend going early in the morning. Great for all kids it's easy, trail is kinda over grown

In the summer of 1980 I backpacked into this canyon and saw no other people, but lots of wildlife. As I was relaxing in my hammock I heard a large animal splash into and swim in the pool below the first waterfall. I started to bang some pans together and cough. Looking at the rocks above the waterfall I saw the tail and rear end of a medium sized mountain lion heading back upstream.

Awesome hike, lots of fun. Go all the way through the trail if you're okay with climbing steep rocks and dirt.

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.
