Fun hike. Not too strenuous or long. Gorgeous falls at the summit. This would be a great hike for families with children or older people who want a bit of challenge without being too stressed

Short and easy hike for an amazing view. It looks great in photo but even better in real life with the sound of the rolling water! It is part of the Rocky Mountain National Park but to get there, a pass is not needed.

This is a wonderful hike since it is short and easy. It has the beauty and variety typical of a mountain hike without the long treturous path. It's a must do if you are in the Grand Lake area.

This was a very easy "hike" to the falls which were pretty and a pretty nice payoff for such a short walk. We saw a deer along the trail which was very unconcerned about people being nearby. The trail is quite easy and a few...More

We greatly enjoyed our hike here - there are good views of the falls all along the beginning of the hike, then you turn away from them but it is still beautiful. We saw deer and chipmunks. There were several park volunteers who answered questions...More

This was a nice short hike. We saw a deer right by the trail on the way. The falls were beautiful. If you want to do a quick hike and see some beautiful scenery on the way I would definitely recommend this.
