Awesome hike with amazing fall colors and waterfall at the end.

This was one of the most beautiful hikes we have done. The weather held up, and the fall colors were just beginning. The hike is along what looks like an old wagon road all the way down from the pass. The views of Winter Park and the Fraser Valley were outstanding, and once near the pass, the James Peak and the other mountains were right there. On the other side of the pass, the terrain changed and Heart Lake looked very cool. Really liked this hike. Round trip for the hike was a little over 3 hours. One important note: the road to the trailhead is very rough for the last 5-6 miles. High clearance or 4-wheel drive is a necessity.

We did this hike two weeks ago and linked it to the CrossTrail and then the Meadow Trail. It was great with consistent views throughout and a smooth and accessible trail. Perfect loop and one that we highly recommend and will do again. I can imagine that in the spring the wild flowers would be abundant, but even in the summer it is nice. We would say that the morning or late afternoon would be the best as there are several sections of the trail that are quite exposed and could be problematic if it is hot and sunny.

Great hike with a rewarding falls at the end. Saw several deer. First half, beginning at discovery trail at Bonfils, was easy. The trail then climbs through fairly rocky areas. Path is well marked and mostly shady. Mileage if starting at Discovery Trail is a bit more than stated.

Nice local hike with lots of side trails to venture off on. My go-to hike if I only have a couple of hours to get out.

Really a great hike, easy in the beginning and more moderate toward the top. The second waterfall is really beautiful albeit a little challenging to get to. Definitely worth the scramble up. Lots of fallen trees had been cleared. I started at the trailhead at Denver Waterworks Road and did the walk to Bonfils at the end, but could have skipped that part. All in all a fun hike!

This was a beautiful hike! We went on a Saturday and passed maybe 20 people all together, so was fairly light traffic. The first 3 miles were fairly easy and the last mile was definitely moderate. You reach a waterfall around mile 2.8 and it’s very lovely, but make sure to keep going until the end because that waterfall is even better!

This was a great hike. Lots of wildflowers and the falls at the end were beautiful.

Not really a trail. More like a few converging paths that don’t go where you’re expecting. I ended up climbing some rock walls and got to some cool views. Good if you aren’t looking for a busy or set path

7/19/18-The road to the TH is rough (high clearance—consider renting a 4 wheeler—would be much better than our F250 truck!). Hike was beautiful—everything we love about a good mountain hike—wildflowers, beautiful parks, breathtaking views, dog friendly. Towards the pass some very steep drops off the trail will require heeling dogs or putting on leash. Only saw 2 other hikers, and 2 mountain bikers.

Drove up to Rollins (Corona) pass after our hike—the old railroad bed. Interesting history, and more beautiful views of Fraser Valley to the west, and the start of Boulder Creek which flows east.

This trail was nice, but toward the end, it’s now impassable. Lots of downed trees and I lost the trail at the falls. Still, pretty.

Fun first hike for this family from Michigan.

Started from Bonfiils Stanton outdoor center parking lot(added .3 miles ) to a beautiful hike! We saw moose! Gets a little tricky crossing the creek in areas! Fallen trees presented no problems. Not many hikers.

Good hike, with a nice waterfall at the end. Plenty of traffic. You have to cross the stream a few times, some fallen trees, but they were being cleaned up and not that big of a deal. Plenty of mud, so I would recommend boots over tennis shoes.

Great!

A good hike, some fallen trees towards end. But passable, some scrambling but nothing hard. Moderately traveled.

make sure you look up the trailhead on google maps. The entry on here may not be correct. It was relatively easy and ended with a rewarding waterfall. The elevation gain is quite manageable and the fallen trees mentioned in the reviews are being overblown: they were easy to avoid and climb over/around.

I would rate it as easy with some portions more difficult. Many fallen trees across path,about mile from end and did not go any further. Could have gone further but did not want to scramble over the many fallen trees.

Agree with last review about the fallen trees. Beautiful hike but was bummed not to complete because of all the fallen trees...became too difficult to navigate. I’d like to try it again later in the season (hopefully) after some maintenance, as I really enjoyed the hike up until then.

Nice and easy walkabout outside Winter Park. Starts with a little switchback uphill, easy from there. Did it very hungover. Nice view of Winter Park from the top.

This trail is a good for a short day hike. The views were nice and diverse. If you decide to hike the trail, beware that the trail marking is not that great. At the high point there are no markings telling you which way to go. There was only a pile of rocks. Lastly, on the way down, there are about a dozen trees blocking the path.

Great Trail! It was fairly flat but a long trail. Was a great beginner hike that weaves in and out of the trees.
