Great area

Beautiful area with several hiking trails, a nice parking area with facilities. The route to the falls is nice and short, a little incline but not too difficult.

Very accessible walking path, short but sweet. Not a lot of water cascading down the mountain this time of year but still beautiful. Nice half hour...

It cost $5 to get in, but it's National Forest so the Senior Pass works. We walked the paved path to the falls. It was a nice walk. You can also hike a longer trail if you like. Fresh mountain air, and beautiful scenery. Would recommend it.

The walk out to see the lower falls is easy. However there is a challenging hike up to the upper Falls that is about 3.5 hours.

With a paved trail, you can bring the whole family to enjoy this beautiful site! There is an overlook where you can see the falls from higher up and get a glimpse of how the water runs from a more panoramic perspective; then, take the trail down for the close up view! There is a network of trails from there... More

A great hike to a beautiful falls. The upper falls require quite a climb but it is worth it. Spectacular views.

Beautiful water falls with the option of a short or long hike! Parking fills up so go early! And take your camera!

We did the long hike up the trail - roughly 3.5 miles one way, it was well worth it when we made it up to the falls. Recommend going early because of limited parking and crowds on the trails.

From the viewing area up above, to the viewing area at the base of the falls, these falls are beautiful. If you want to take a longer hike (and have the right shoes on!), make the trek along a beautiful trail up to the 2nd set of falls with great views looking back at the Yampa Valley. The falls are...

It's a short walk to the main area of the falls. Very scenic, and a great place to just hang pout a bit. We used a drone and took some incredible footage! The walk back to the top isn't too bad, but the thin aire will wind you!
