Great hike for folks getting adjusted to the altitude, and also for hotter, sunny days, as it's mostly in the shade. The grade is pretty gradual, and you cross over the stream several times, allowing for some great views up and down stream. Might be...More

My son and I spent the weekend hiking around the Rockies and picked this trail due to recommendations. It is a great moderate trail. The views are abundant and you cannot take a bad picture. Can't wait to come back and hike it again.

This trail is about 5 miles round trip. The first part of the trail is normal hiking through wooded trail mostly. The second half opens up to better all-around views of the landscape. When you get to Ouzel Falls, the trail will take you to...More
