Very pretty hike, highly accessible from I70. Moderate out and back, we were going for the lake but got caught in a rain storm about 35 minutes past the falls so turned back. Beautiful wild flowers, many sections followed the water which was nice to listen to along the way. Encountered other hikers about every 10-15 minutes on a Sunday, not terribly crowded.

We did this hike last year for the 4th of July and I still remember how nice it was. We thought we'd try something different this year but didn't like it as much and really wished we had come back to this trail. Really pretty waterfall that made the hike well worth it.

Loved this hike! My husband carried our 2 year old on his back and my 5 year old son did this hike no problem. There were some rockier parts toward the top that were a little slick. Falls are beautiful and there was so much to look at along the way.

With all the rain we've had it was absolutely gorgeous, all flowers were in full bloom. Very busy with it being a holiday weekend but still very pleasant. It took a little over an hour to get to the falls with multiple breaks for my 9 year old but she made it without any issues.

Rigorous. Not an easy trail. But, well worth it.

My friend and I did this today (late June) and the weather was perfect. Warm and slightly overcast. If you do this in the summer on a hot day, good luck. Mostly in the sun and it's all uphill to the falls. Took us 2 hours to get to the falls and an hour or less back. The view is definitely worth it though.

Great hike, beautiful mountain views. Steep in spots, but should not be a problem for most people. The falls were worth the trip. Be aware, it will get busy on the weekends.

Went on this hike in the fall (October) and it was gorgeous! There was some snow, but mostly melted. The falls weren't flowing too rapidly so we were able to climb across the rocks to another gorgeous view point. Overall an easy hike for an experienced hiker but still completely do able for someone who isn't.
