Pretty canyon and area, but the Agnes Vaille Falls trail continues to be closed in late May 2014 because of the rock slide six months or longer earlier. Parking lot is chained off so that people don't pull in and start up the trail, despite the closure signs. From the road you can catch a glimpse of the Falls, which... More

Our extended family of 27 has been hiking to the waterfall here every year for the past 10 years, and it is a tradition we will continue for as long as the trail is open

Sadly, closed due to a massive rock slide just below the falls. Please check with local authorities before heading out, to see when/if it will reopen.

I hiked the 1/2 mile to the falls with my dog in late September. It's a low point in the water flow so the falls weren't that impressive but it's a nice hike with a trail that's easy to follow. A good view of the Denver, South Park and Pacific line on the other side of the canyon. The plaque... More

Save three hours and make sure you get all the way to the foot of the falls. Take time to turn around and savor the views. In dry weather the footing was fine except near the foot of the falls.

Only 4 miles from the hot springs and only a mile round trip to the falls with several stopping points highlighting local history. Plenty of wild raspberries along the trail too.

Easy marked trails. Slightly steep but worth the trip, beautiful. Take the camera. Picture signs share history of area. Good size parking lot. Kids 6 and up usually can climb it.

Waterfalls have a definite allure as do hikes with valley views. This has both - but it isn't for the faint hearted. It may be only half a mile but it is at high altitude (9,000+ ft) over rough, rocky terrain. It took my son and I 25 minutes to ascend and my heart was pounding at 125 beats/minute when... More

This is must-see because it's beautiful and doable. Although, for those who may have some injuries or disabilities, keep in mind that you have some high steps and minor climbing in order to see the actual falls.
