Reviewed January 22, 2013

There are lot of places to visit, a short drive from Boulder and Boulder Falls is one of them. Good place to visit for families with children. There also a lot of walking trails nearby.

“better than car sickness...”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

Boulder Falls is actually on North Boulder Creek (a photo I see with this entry is of a cascade on the main stem of Boulder Creek). The short walk to the falls is closed from late fall to early spring owing to rock falls. If you live somewhere without waterfalls, maybe this seems special, but it is rather pedestrian compared with many others in the Rockies and is actually a tough one to photograph.

“Hiker's Delight”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

Put on your hiking boots and get going!! A pretty drive up Boulder Canyon will reward you with a casual hiking experience for you and your older children to the picturesque Boulder Falls. You may get wee bit wet and it can get slippery so watch your step......but well worth the effort!!! Bring along a camera...lots of photo ops!!!

“Nice but”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

Nice place , but less than impressive , but if a little fresh air is what you seek or a bike ride , there is a trail a little closer to town just east , very accesible and well maintained , to walk or bike as much or little as you like

“Everytime I go here it is closed”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

A very short path to the falls (I walked it in wedges). The falls are very pretty. The only problem is besides once within the last couple years, everytime I go the falls are closed because of falling rocks. Make sure it is open if you are going to drive from Denver! Otherwise it is worth the trip, especially if you are planning to go to Pearl Street after, or spend the day in Boulder.
