very beautiful hike not too strenuous, sweeping views of the vistas of Colorado Springs. the waterfall isn't as impressive as I would have hoped but it was worth it. Loved the overall hike and feel of this area.

Busy initially, but once you get a bit past the tunnel folks tend to become fewer and far between. I wasn't super impressed by the falls themselves, but the home there is beautiful! The sign near the end is a bit misleading. It looks like it's directing you forward, past the sign, when the trail is actually almost a full 180 behind you, going up fairly steep.

Ended up on this trail a few years ago out of pure chance. The only thing really difficult about the last 1/2 of the hike is that you are constantly in pea gravel, so it can be exhausting and hard on the legs coming down, but all in all a very good hike.
