  • We couldn't decide on a hike for our last day in Rocky Mountain National Park, so we looked for one that wasn't quite as well known as some of the others. This one had a much smaller amount of review,...  more »

  • It’s worth the hike! Keep going until you think you can’t go anymore and you are almost 1/2way there. Along the way there are countless beautiful waterfalls and streams. Look for the fat chipmunks and animals everywhere. The flowers are amazing in the spring and summer. Take a hike around all sides of the fall and go to the top if you can. The views over the mountains are incredible! Bring water and snacks as the adventure could take a few hours+. It’s also a good idea to bring a light jacket and a poncho even in the summer as the temperature falls fast and it can rain at any moment. Closed toed shoes are a must and hiking boots are recommended.
  • Very scenic hike to the falls. Try to hike near the top of the falls, if you are able. It's really beautiful there.
  • The hike is one of the easier ones in the area, and the whole trail is absolutely beautiful. There were plenty of places to sit and rest if needed, and The scenery was incredible. The trail was busy, as this is one of the more popular hiking trails in the park, but everyone on the trail was very friendly, and despite the crowds the hike was still very serene!
  • Hiked mid May! Still a little cold and still rains during that time so get out early! Beautiful falls.
  • Loved the falls along this trail and the 360 degree views above, top of the trail to Ouzel Lake. Just gorgeous!
