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!

The hike to lower falls is so easy, a 3 y-o could do it. You can always give a piggyback on the return walk, which is uphill. The hike to the upper falls is a 2000 foot elevation gain and is quite steep. It is worth it, though I wouldn't want to try it in some of the clothing and... More

Several hiking sites to stop and gaze at the falls. Wander further down the path and get to within 50 yards of the base. Invigorating and spectacular!

Right in town short easy hike to the falls and children were in the freezing water for 3 hours. Great place to visit on every trip. Everyone there had a huge smile on their face and all of children had fun.

The upper falls were worth the trek up the trail. However, the trail was crowded, which was probably no surprise, given the number of cars in the parking lot. Bottom line: get there early in the day to not only get a parking spot, but to have a better chance of enjoying the trail.

My boyfriend and I stopped quickly to see the falls before horseback riding. It's a short walk to see the view from the bottom. They also have the option to hike and see it from the top but we didn't have the time. I'm hoping to accomplish that next trip back!

Nice walking trails that range from easy to moderate to difficult so you can set your own course. The view is beautiful ! Definitely worth the $5 per car fee to get into!
