amazing trail, moderately trafficked but not too bad, the landscape and veiws/forests are beautiful, no complaints!

Great hike to the falls. If you want to go further, it's nice, too. Fairly steep after the falls, but not hard.

I hike on Timpanooke Road for a good portion of this instead of the trail. It's flatter and you don't get lost as easy. It's a great way to end a long camping trip. Beautiful views of the north and front sides of Timp.

incredible view and totally worth it! well shaded too!

This was a good hike! Not too steep not too difficult! Gorgeous views and we saw a moose right next to the trail.

Very nice hike. The views are incredible. And to have the stream right along the trail was awesome! Will definitely do this hike again

good short hike and very nice falls.

beautiful hike all the way through and the prize at the end the waterfall perfect.

Stunning view! Tons of butterflies at the troughs, but very overgrown as we continued down past them. I would recommend staying on Horse Flat trail and avoiding Dead Horse trail.

Beautiful first half of this hike. We were the ONLY people on the trail at 8:30 AM. We did have four people on horse back towards the end. The second half is really overgrown and a bit jungly. But overall a nice quick hike with lovely scenery and hardly any traffic.

I agree with Chris, this is more of a moderate trail. By the end my friend and I were very sore. The pain was well worth seeing the falls. Take lots of water!

fun destination hike with a great payoff. falls were amazing. most of the trail is fairly ez, but there are a couple of steep sections.
took the whole family, my 9 year old struggled just a bit.
took 2 hours.
GPS had it at 4.3 miles.

Great trail. It's well covered and stays pretty cool. The slightly steeper parts are well staggered, good exercise but not too difficult. Very beautiful location.

Short. Easy with kids. Beautiful.

This is my favorite hike of the season. I’ve done Cecret Lake, Big Baldy, Silver Lake and Battle Creek Falls. I’d give it a 5* if it wasn’t for the amateurs hiking on the trail. If you see a trail runner, move over and let them pass. Falls were refreshing and great to cool off under before I headed back down.

This is a great trail. We took our three kids ages 12, 10 and 8. If you choose to go up the Lame Horse side, be prepared for a steep climb and if you choose to start at the Horse Flat side, be prepared for a steep descent. There is a natural water spring (it flows into a trough) and the water coming from it is amazing so bring an empty bottle to fill it up.

This trail is marked “easy” but it is not!! It is definitely “moderate” and if you are an inexperienced hiker, possibly even “difficult “. There are rocks and tree roots to navigate especially along the last section leading to the falls. And it is a challenge for small children. Most kids under 7 that I saw on the trail were not happy. One 3 year old was afraid of how high up we were along part of the trail and cried for a good part of it

Now all that being said, it is a beautiful hike!! Lots of shade, wildflowers (even in dry July), scenic views across the mountains and the waterfall did not disappoint!! Just be prepared with water and snacks, especially if you have kids with you.

I completely agree that this hike should not be categorized as ‘easy’. However, it was well worth the hike. Beautiful falls.

Absolutely gorgeous. Should not be rated easy but it depends on which parts you hike.

Not much in terms of views for me (forest with a path).
The app stated that it’s good for all people, I disagree as I wasn’t used to the elevation in town let alone here.
The site however shows moderate difficulty so pass on that critique.
Went early enough that I passed only a few people (got there by 0720) so it was more peaceful to hike.
The bugs were an annoyance, but the biggest thing is to watch out for horse sh*t.
Will do this hike again when it snows.

Definitely a steady climb. I always thought there was just one water fall because I always stopped down at the base and hung out then went back down. Today I kept going up past the waterfall and discovered more falls. The trail does continue to climb. we stopped at the area where it forks off to either Curly Springs or Dry Creek. The sign said only 1.3 miles from the Kiwanis park (where the parking lot was) felt like we went further. The hike was gorgeous and past the falls there was an occasional person or people hiking but for the majority of the time we were alone.

AllTrails rates it as easy. I’d say more moderate between easy and intermediate at 3.9 miles with 650 feet altitude gain, lots of up and down, dusty portions with a couple of tricky rock fields. Mostly not too tough but not for young children (saw lots of parents carrying little ones) or older adults.

We went up Lame Horse trail and came down Horse Flat trail. It was beautiful, buggy, and the view was so worth it! It was steep in places, and the underbrush is thick. We wish we had worn long pants. We did see a moose, but it was content watching us, so we mosied on by. Carefully. Not much for wild flowers; mostly aspens. We may have been a little late in the season though. :) the view at the top was totally worth it. Take your time at the top!! And wear bugspray and sun screen.

This hike is actually 4 miles round trip. Had a blast going under the waterfall even though it was so cold it took my breath away. We hit the trail just before 8AM on Pioneer Day and it wasn't very busy and we arrived at the falls within an hour. By the time we decided to leave the falls it was a different story! The trail became very crowded with both people and dogs (mostly off leash). I would call this trail Moderate. There is quite a bit uphill. But it is doable. The waterfall is beautiful as well.

Popular hike- the parking lot was essentially full around 9am on Saturday. Trail mostly shaded so could have even come later in the day. It's a short hike to the main waterfall, but there are more waterfalls to be seen if you keep going on the trail.
