The hike was a stop just before the west entrance of Rocky Mountain National Park. Short, easy family hike that gives a nice view of Adams Falls without traveling too far. We continued further, past the falls, to a pretty meadow in the hopes of...More

We really enjoyed this hike. It's not the most amazing waterfall in the world but the kids loved it and we were able to see some gorgeous scenery without hiking for hours and hours with little ones. It's really close to Grand Lake so if...More

This was a stop that was worth the time. It's a short hike to the waterfalls, and has some great overlooks. You can spend 30 minutes or 2 hours here, it just depends on how long you would like to stay. Cheap camping nearby also.

These falls are in the grand lake area on the west side of the park. the falls were ok nothing too thrilling and the hike up to and around the falls was nice but would not make a special trip over there to see them.

It is an easy hike to the falls on a short loop trail. We visited in July & there was plenty of water in the falls. Take the trail a little higher & there is a lovely area to have a paddle or swim in....More

My dad can't hike too far because he has a bad hip, so this was a great hike for him. It's super short, and very rewarding. The waterfall is really beautiful and it's nice just to chill there for a while and take it in.

Well marked trailhead at the head of Grand Lake. Quite a bit of parking. While it's only 3/10 of a mile there is some elevation climb. The viewing area is quite safe and well marked. It was worth the time.

Easy, short hike to a beautiful falls! After lunch at Grand Lake, we went on this short hike and were impressed with the incredible beauty all along the entire trail. The Falls are awesome!

Hi Amber, Not sure when you plan on visiting so this may be a moot answer. If your dog is a trained service dog, your dog may accompany you on the trail. Other wise dogs are restricted to road surfaces and parking lots. No... More
