as you travel up the boulder canyon, it is worth your while to visit the falls at different seasons. The scenery seems to change each time.

If you are driving through the beautiful Boulder Canyon from Boulder to Nederland, it is worth a short stop to see the falls. However, comments from those who say it's a site to drive to and is wonderful are totally exaggerated. It is a stop worth only the ten minutes it takes to walk and see the falls. Perhaps many have never seen waterfalls before and for them it is wonderful - it is not that good. I've seen many with poor walking shoes doing the short walk - a dangerous thing to do.

As you walk along the steps there isnt a guard rail. Needless to say we were all in a panic. Its worth it once you get to the falls themselves and are able to enjoy the sound of the water and the view of the rocks.

It was a short walk to a nice view. We enjoyed driving the winding roads and the views along the way. Made for a good day trip.

These falls are not readily visible as you drive past. However, the short hike to view them is worth a trip or a short break to have lunch near the falls or along the river.
