It's 2 miles to the falls and it took us 1 1/2 hours but it was sooo worth it. Stayed up and enjoyed it for quite a while. Watched a rain storm go down the valley, guess we where so high up it barely sprinkled on us. Must do! We'll be back and will do it again

Four of us seniors picked a warm, sunny, afternoon to make this hike - probably not the ideal weather but much better than hiking in the rain. I used two hiking/trekking poles and was very comfortable keeping a slow, steady pace all the way to the falls with just one or two brief stops after a few particularly steep, rocky,... More

I am an active walker, not hiker. The facts are this hike climbs 1400 feet. It is approximately 3 miles each way. According to my phone app, I climbed 65 floors. Timewise, it took me two times what I normally walk on flat land. Bring plenty of water. Parking is 3 hours, but it took me longer since I stayed... More

We had a small window of time and wanted to get up into the high country for a couple hours. Gorgeous Aspens, waterfalls and views!!

This was a very nice hiking trail, me and my husband were passing by vail on our way to Aspen and decided to stop and hike it. There are some parts that are a little strenuous, it took us 4 hours to finish our hike, we were definitely tired. The scenery and falls were wonderful.

One of the best trails in Vail. Near downtown, easy to get to and you can park on the access road. Comparing this to anything in the RMNP is not fair, but it is a very nice trail. A bit tough at times, but the downhill trek makes it a nice finish.

Numerous beautiful views on this hike with the majority of the ascent feeling like you are climbing hundreds of stairs, but worth every step!

Very enjoyable hike. Some spots were a little strenuous, but overall a moderate hike. Beautiful views of mountains, meadows, flowers, and ultimately the falls. I was short on time, so, I ended my hike at the falls (about 2 miles). I read it can be 11 miles.

Great trail for a short day. It does gain pretty good elevation but the Falls are awesome. The parking lot gets packed very early. I suggest getting their before 8:00 if you want a spot without waiting.

This is a fantastic hike - it was the highlight of my trip to the Rockies (in late July). I'm not an expert hiker, but I'm in decent shape. I was with a group of people that ranged in terms of their physical fitness and we all made it up and down. Make sure you take lots of breaks and... More
