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.

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.

Pretty out of shape (trying to work my way into shape haha) and was worried about the reviews that mentioned how steep it was. It's more of a long gradual steep than a straight-up-the-mountain thing. I thought this was the perfect distance since right around when you start feeling exhausted from all the uphill you hear the falls and you know you're close. Agree with the other reviews that mention there's a bit of scrambling to get down to the base of the falls, though we were lucky enough to not encounter any stinging nettle like others mentioned. Really not bad at all. A good portion of the trail is actually paved which is nice on the way down so you aren't so worried about where you're stepping to avoid hitting a rock and rolling an ankle. We did this with our dog and only encountered a couple other people on the trail on a Sunday afternoon around 4:30-5 pm starting time. Super enjoyable, most hikes I do and then hate the whole way down and am likely to never return since I've done it once, but this is one I plan to do again, hopefully soon! Honestly couldn't recommend it more!

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 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.

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.

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.

I'm fat and out of shape but I made it to the first falls. It was beautiful. You have to scramble up some rocks if you want to get in the little pool that the waterfall feeds. The trail had beautiful views of Timp with many wilflowers and we must have seen about 100 butterflies. There is some stinging nettle near the falls so just be careful. Someday when I'm in better shape I hope to go on to the second falls which I hear is a little further up the trail.

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.

Great trail with several different types of trails, the app says 5.6 Miles but it is more like 6.8. The views are great and the walk back is much easier than getting up there! Took about 4 hours and we spent time enjoying the scenes along the way.

Much nicer trail road compared with Battle Creek - better views also. Highly recommended. Maybe back in fall time.

Nice shaded hike with beautiful waterfalls

Super easy hike for the family and for your little ones. People bring their dogs on the trail and leave theirs dogs “mess” so watch for that. But fun and very popular.

The hike is pretty easy overall. The first 2/3 going in isn’t anything special. The last bit is a lot more fun. The destination is what makes this hike well worth the journey.

Very heavily trafficked when I was up there, but so beautiful! Will definitely get your heart pumping, but it really isn't too hard of a climb. Saw tons of little kids and, really, people of all ages. Great hike! (Even better views)

Dusty and crowded but the views were awesome. Some steeper sections but still pretty doable.

Not 3.4 miles! It’s 2 up and 2 down, so be prepared! My kids 5 & 3 walked the entire time and it took us about 4 hours (including the stay at the waterfall).

Then hike was perfect, just longer than I expected. Also dusty and a lot of rocks. Otherwise one of the best longer hikes I’ve been on. Totally worth it!

Beautiful hike! Easy to moderate, with some steep and rocky parts. It is dusty! The falls are beautiful.
