This was a great and challenging hike, totally worth the trip. It is moderately challenging, so be prepared. Bring lots of water and if you have hiking poles, I recommend bringing them too. The ascent took me about 3 hrs (with breaks) and descent 2.5hrs. Definitely stop at the lodge for lunch. They have bagged lunches with unlimited coffee/hot chocolate refills and a place to fill up your water bottle. If you're in decent shape, this hike won't be as difficult for you as many people commented. It's challenging, but don't let that deter you. The views were spectacular!

easy although it has an incline and stairs. very beautiful

No place to park so we did not hike it. Not sure where those who do hike this actually park because there were Private property, no trespass, no parking, and tow away signs all over the area.

Training hike for upcoming CO 14er hike.

I hiked up Anthony creek trail and Russel Field trail and somewhat overestimated the challenge of getting to the back country site. Overall it should take roughly 2 hours from the starting location, but it is an up hill climb the entire way - so pack lightly. The campsite itself is very minimal, offering bear cables and a basic pit to start a fire. That being said the winding creek and untouched forest offering a diversity of flora and fauna made the overnight trip worth it.

What a fantastic family hike! We hiked to the falls with a 16yo, 7yo, and 21 month old in tow. The falls we're beautiful by the main trail, but do yourself the favor of finding a way up to get closer to them. The bridge over the creek was awesome and the water was fast.(tons of rain the previous few days) We didn't make it to the settlement, but did find the small graveyard from turn of the century.
