It's a steep-ish walk from the parking lot up to the falls but totally worth it. Aside from the crowd of people, it was downright magical. Between the magical grove of trees around the gorgeous, clean water, and the stunning view of the world from...More

I just visited the falls today and it was incredible. A few things which I know I had questions about. 1. The road is pretty rough / rocky and is about 3 miles. I have a 2 door low clearance sports car and managed to...More

There is a 1.5 mike hike up a trail before you get to the entrance of the falls. You are required to hike through a cold stream / small river to get into the tight canyon hosting the falls. Once inside, there might be several...More

We came here with our two dogs for a hike and maybe see the falls. It's a bumpy four mile ride up but the views make it worthwhile alone. You can see the sand dunes and mountains at a new level. The hike to the...More

After a short and not too challenging hike, you will need to actually finish the last part of this adventure by actually entering the stream formed by the waterfall. We were there late season so the water levels were fairly low but it is still...More

The falls themselves are reasonably impressive, but it’s more about the journey. After a short, slightly steep, trail, you have to walk up the - pretty cold – creek to actually see the falls. It was good fun and pretty easy when we were there...More

After a 3 mile dirt road drive, you hike about 1/4 mile to the edge of the stream that leads to the falls. Prepare to get your feet wet. As you make your way into the cave that contains the falls, you will be walking...More

TERRIBLE road that goes to the falls. Then the quarter mile "trail" to the falls is not easy to do, either.

The road is BAD, and a sign warns you a head of time, but it doesn't matter because the falls and the walk to it are worth it. There is a parking area and restrooms, and a nice view of the Great Sand Dunes NP....More

I went in March and the waterfall inside was nearly all frozen. Once inside the cave, the ice is very slippery. I'm assuming as summer progresses, the ice thins out.
