Review of Adams Falls Trail

While in the area visiting a friend, my daughter and I had the opportunity to do some exploring and our friend took us to the Adams Falls Trail. Its a relatively easy hike. My 8 year old had zero problems with terrain and she loved the falls. The falls themselves are AWESOME! Lots of great photo opportunities and do not miss the chance to continue beyond the falls to see the valley at the base of the mountain. Very lush meadow with a snow capped mountain backdrop in July. I would return tomorrow if I could.

The hike is so small, less than a mile, and the terrain is easy to climb. The view is breathtaking at the peak and makes for great family photos with large boulders to stand on to get a good shot. The trail continues for less than half a mile and opens up to a secret meadow that is so peaceful you will fill with joy. When I was there I witnessed about 5 fly fisherman and found myself captivated by the serene and quite nature of the meadow. The backdrop is snow capped mountains. I don't recommend loud, obnoxious children go up the trail to the meadow; it is truly a peaceful spot for reflection - not screaming.

This is a great easy walk, particularly if you have mobility issues. Although the trail won't work for wheelchairs, if you can climb 50 stairs, you can see this waterfall. If you can do it, there is some rock scrambling to the base of the falls that is worth the climb.

The falls are worth the short, but sometimes steep hike. There is a great viewing area and the trail continues on up the river. The sound itself is mesmerizing! The route to the trailhead is not well marked though. When you exit at Grand Lake, be sure to stay to the left at the intersection and continue back a couple of miles.

This is a short trail, and a pretty walk. The falls are pretty impressive, though they don't feel very natural with the viewpoints and steps and such. Go past the falls a bit to pretty meadows backed by snow-capped mountains. You may see moose around here.
