The hike is moderate to difficult. The thing that makes it hard is the length. You also climb the last two miles back to the trailhead at the end and that was tough for me. The hoodoos were very cool and no one else around!

We went on Oct 5 when snow had covered the trail. It was cold and windy in parts, but much of our route was well shielded. The views from the continental divide trail were spectacular.
Note: the coldest and most windy part was on the overlook itself. The trail is actually more friendly, from a wind perspective.

I was expecting more from this hike and maybe the time of year had a little to do with that. The meadows were dull with color but the aspens were changing which were beautiful. It is a long hike but not extremely hard. Very quiet and no wildlife sightings throughout the trip. Water volume of the falls was good, I'd enjoy seeing it in the spring

Great views and amazing flowers. My son and I hiked back about three miles before the clouds (and thunder) started rolling in. It's mostly downhill, so prepare for the uphill trek back to the microwave station. It's a quad burner back up for sure....But well worth it.

OK overlook of a decent waterfall, steep drop off, be-careful with little kids, no railings in places

Really nice short day hike with lots of different scenery. Best to have a high clearance vehicle to reach the trail head.
