Lots of scenery with views of water, trees, mountains, and just good old fresh air. The trail is maintained and is worthy of a hike.

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.

This was the only hike we did during our brief stay at Grand Lake and we are glad we chose this one. The portion of the hike to the falls is short and relatively easy although it is all "uphill" Not super steep, but the...More
