A must see in Colorado. So peaceful and beautiful and enjoyed my hike there for sure. Very accessible. You can choose to walk 3 mins and look at the falls or actually walk 10 thru the rocks to get all the way there.

A very nice drive up from Boulder. Super easy hike that just about anyone can do. It is well worth the payoff for just a few short steps.

We really enjoyed our visit to this natural park. The hike is very easy, it's shady and athletic shoes are good enough. The waterfall is just so beautiful and calming, I wanted to stay all day!

Trail recently reopened in June this year. We loved the short rocky trail requiring good balance and agility to get to the Falls viewpoints. Beautiful and peaceful. Parking can be tight at times, and lookout for traffic speeding downhill when you cross the road to...More

No it is not open. There is no set date to reopen the trail. Too dangerous.
