This is a 1 mile point-to-point trail, making 2 miles total (unsure why AllTrails's automated system says 3.6 miles). The trail meanders by a stream through aspen, birch and pine groves until it reaches a small basalt column cirque with a waterfall. Best in spring, but doable in all but the dead of winter.

It's a fun little hike! The end is the real pretty part, or I guess what I mean is I wouldn't do the hike if it were not for the pretty falls at the end. The hike on is pretty but nothing special. If you have dogs or young kids getting to the bottom of the falls (where the real view is) would be pretty difficult. We also saw a snake on the rocks getting down there, it was small and didn't appear dangerous but it made me think it would be a good spot for rattlesnakes. If you go, bring a beverage to enjoy below the falls- it's really pretty.

Great trail, not a hard trek, not over run with people (passed people on the way there and back but that's all we encountered) and the waterfall is worth the heat!

Easy hike, took my 7 year old, and backpacked my 2 year old. It ended up being right around 3 miles round trip. Once you get to the water fall, it's kind of hard to get down, due to the loose dirt and rocks, but manageable. Definitely a gorgeous view, and can't wait to go again!

great hike! saw beautiful butterflies all over and no snakes! Getting to the bottom of the waterfall was definitely a challenge but well worth it.
