Rocky Mountain National Park. 2 miles from Grand Lake (West) entrance to the park. Use the Green Mountain Trailhead.

Loved it, but the trail signs did not coincide with the All Trails map.

Great hike! Did it with my 10 and 6 year old boys and had a blast. Took us pretty much all day, but the change in terrain kept it interesting. Kids equated it to the game Candy Land. Started out in the tropical forest, passed the grasslands (prairie meadow), through the burnt forest, along the creek trail, and finally hit Granite Falls.

Saw 5 moose in Big Meadow area. Pretty mild hike, distance makes it moderate. My GPS also clocked in at closer to 13.5mi out and back. No real mountain views, but opportunity for moose makes this hike!

Loved this hike! The falls were well worth the 10+ mile round trip. Well maintained trail and low traffic! The moose were an added bonus!
