Colorado beauty at it's finest. Depending on the time of year, your views will change like the weather. I've been here a couple times and each time it's as if I'm seeing everything for the first time.

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...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.
