This is a good warm-up hike, not only for the falls but also for the meadow if you continue just a bit further. The falls are a series of smaller falls and rapids, not one vertical fall. The falls are on a loop, as you...More

We were there in fall so the water level was quite low and the falls weren't in any way spectacular. However, it is a very short, easy walk and the colours were beautiful. We also enjoyed the pretty drive around the lake to get to...More

Fun hike. Not too strenuous or long. Gorgeous falls at the summit. This would be a great hike for families with children or older people who want a bit of challenge without being too stressed

Short and easy hike for an amazing view. It looks great in photo but even better in real life with the sound of the rolling water! It is part of the Rocky Mountain National Park but to get there, a pass is not needed.

This is a wonderful hike since it is short and easy. It has the beauty and variety typical of a mountain hike without the long treturous path. It's a must do if you are in the Grand Lake area.

Went with two 4 year olds, and a 6 and 7 year old. They made it without any difficulty. The path was quite broad and steps were well defined in almost all the places. There were a significant number of other folks so this isn't...More

This is a fairly easy hike with only 70-80 feet change in elevation. It is an established and well maintained trail with no loose rocks. The 8,400+ altitude was our biggest challenge, but using hiking staffs and going slow allowed us to complete it without...More

Adams fall trail was a great easy hike for our family (kids 6, 8) The trail offers great views at the end and is easy to access trailhead. This is a way to hike in RMNP without a park pass if that is something that...More
