Starting in the cove of Alpine city just above the rodeo grounds this wide horse trail winds it's way through dry creek canyon along a river up to impressive waterfalls.

Absolutely love this trail, we found a little break off from the main trail about .5 miles from the actual waterfall that overlooked it. It was absolutely gorgeous, we went on a rainy day and it ended up hailing on us, but it was so worth it!

Loved this hike. How Bells Canyon is rated hard and this is rated Moderate, however, I don't get. Found this to be a very similar hike, but honestly liked this one so much more. Steady, challenging climb the whole way. We got a bit lost and had to back track. A nice hiker showed us where we went wrong and got us over to the falls. We ended up at the top and then hiked down to the base...and scrambled right down to them where we fou nd a place to sit and eat a snack. For a while we were all alone there...it was the best. Love this hike. Recommend highly. Our GPS showed 5.51 miles when we finished. I think the 4 miles shown here is inaccurate.

This hike was super gorgeous the entire way and very rewarding at the end. It's pretty steep which makes it a little tough but it's worth it!

This trail was a really nice mix between shade and sun. It was somewhat difficult to find our way to the waterfall but it was beautiful and well worth the hike.

Awesome hike! Uphill for most of the way to the falls. Beautiful wildflowers and scenery along the way. It takes a bit of bush wacking to get to the bottom of the falls, but so worth it! There wasn't any snow, but a few muddy spots on the trail.

Best time to see the waterfall! It's spewing right now. There is a trail to the top and a more hidden trail to the lower half of the waterfall. Go see both! 10/10 recommend.
