Popular and well-marked trail has lots to see all along the way. There is a beautiful stream off to the left with wondrous falls and rapids. The lake is more remote and well worth the extra effort.

The Booth Falls Trail was recommended to us by our hotel adventure guide. We were fortunate enough to have hotel transportation to and from the trail head. The trip to the falls is only about 4.6 miles round trip, but it is a moderate level hike. Do not expect flat and unchallenging. Hiking takes you through forests as well as... More

One of the destinations on this trail is a waterfall, at least part-way up to the lake. It's a precarious view, but one worth looking at if you like watching water falling. The lake is beautiful, and the trail moderately difficult. Bring adequate supplies for a day hike up and back!

Booth Falls is a beautiful trail. You can either hike to the falls and turn back for a quick 4 mile hike or you can trek up to Booth Lake (Best way to do it) for a 12 mile round trip. It's a moderate hike and very enjoyable. Definitely do it again in the summer time.

If you're not used to the elevation get ready for a normally easy 2 miles hike to the waterfall to make you winded. Beautiful views. Nice trail.

This hike is easy to access off the East-Vail exit. It is only a 6 hour hike of you move slowly. If you hike on the regular or semi-regular you are fine with slotting 3 or 4 hours, we usually do it in 2 1/2 & the wife was 7 1/2 months pregnant last time. The incline is decently steep... More

Awesome views! Amazing beauty. The big waterfall was a bit hard to see, just because how it is in the gorge, but it was still pretty and worth the hike.

We had no idea when we began this hike it would be 6 hours ~ 3 up/3 down!!!! It was shady then wide open with wildflowers everywhere to beautiful waterfalls and it was unforgiving ~ quite an elevation change. When we got to the top and sat down for a quick bite we felt 'eyes on us' and looked up... More

We hiked this trail with our kids, 13 and 8 year old. One of the best trails we had so far. It was not an easy hike, it was really challenging but the scenery is worth the trip. The trail takes you through trees, meadows, ridges and of course the falls. Parking lot is small, just for a handful of... More

This hoe is not for the faint of heart but the reward is worth it. The falls are beautiful, as is the hike up. Remember that hiking down can be as challenging-take your walking sticks if you have them.
