This was a great hike with a wonderful view when you get to the top. What a beautiful day to get out and see this today. We had our 7 and 8 yr old with us, they did great.

I am planning to head up to Snoquera tomorrow..WTA posted the trail is closed?I couldn't find anything online with the forestry dept. But looking through theses reviews..a lot of people were disappointed in the falls. They are spectacular in late Spring..the huge drop and then water cascading over all of the rocks at bottom where the trail is!!
It is amazing!! Do not pass up these falls! Just have to hit them at the right time of year!

A must do! I’d do this one again and again. Just the right amount of switchbacks and amazing views! If you plan on completing the loop (i’d recommend for the full experience ) take water proof hiking boots or a change for after you cross the creek which is created by the plunge pool of snoquera falls.

Great trail for young ones (our 8 and 5 year olds did the entire loop counter clockwise -to include the off trail route up to the fall). A little over 800 feet total ascent and 5.25 miles round trip. The portion west of the falls crosses the rock slides multiple times (multiple rock slides--some dating back centuries/eons most likely, others much more recent). Trail on the east side of the falls is shorter and steeper (not that steep, just steeper), so if you don't want the mileage, an out and back on that side is advised. West side is still very easily navigable and all but one or two crossings have very good paths across the slide fields (some recent falls have paths that have not been fully cleared out)--our kids had zero issue with any of it and we made good time.

The hike up from the trail to the actual fall is definitely recommended if the water throughput is at a low point (as it is this time of year). Probably worth it if there is much more water--just will get much more sporty on the boulder hopping as the best route up is via the watercourse--if mucho water, not recommended for the young or those that don't like a good scramble.

This trail is really cool if you take a right and head up to hike the trail counterclockwise. However. Once you hit the falls, you might want to turn back and head the way you came. We continued counterclockwise and did the full loop. The part from the falls to the start is really tough and rocky/treacherous. The "back 9" so to speak is pretty unstable and has a lot of places where the trail
Is covered in shale/rocks. Good trail overall, though. I would like to do it in the fall when there's more water, too.

-Decent parking
-Repulsive bathrooms no running water no TP
-Not kid friendly due to wash outs
-Waterfall was disappointing

This trail has many places that have been washed out. There is also a rock slide that has covered the trail in many places and has to be crossed. While it is passable it is very treacherous. There is at least half a mile of on and off crossing rocks in several places. If you want to avoid this just take the trail to the base of the falls and turn a around and skip the loop. While the falls are some what unimpressive most of the views are in the second half of the hike. I believe the second half of the hike with the trail damage makes this a much more difficult hike than the rating implies. Still it is a doable hike just beware.

Not a bad hike, but beware...there's barely any water falling. If you walk up to where the water somewhat pools, you see a little something, but definitely not what i was expecting.

Beautiful falls! It was fun to cross the creek at the base of the falls.

Great little hike for the family and dogs. When the trail met the stream that comes from the falls we passed over the steam. We then climbed up the rocks and followed the stream all the way up to the falls. We have two large dogs that made the climb just fine.

Good hike. Was too steep to take the dogs up to the actual falls.

Loved this hike. It was great for a quick afternoon explore. Make sure to save time for resting and enjoying the view at the falls.

Start the trail counter-clockwise if we want to climb quickly or follow it clock-wise if you have small children or a someone needing a more gentile climb.

There are two spots where you have to climb over blow-downs that could use a chainsaw to be cleared.

Great hike! At times the trail is obscure but that makes it adventurous. Variety of trail terrain--- from soft pine needle covered to muddy to extreme rocky as well as crossing rocky water ways.
Glad to have our gps with us as we took a wrong turn near the end of the loop but quickly figured it out and finished strong!

A beautiful, not too hard hike.
