Far away from the major entrances into the park, this little gem of a hike and waterfalls are not to be missed. Take your time getting back to the trailhead. The road in is a very narrow, twisting dirt road..TAKE YOUR TIME AND DRIVE SLOWLY....More

This southeast quadrant of the park is pretty and wild. If you want to drive or hike away from the crowds passing through Estes's park go south on route 7 to paradise. There are trailheads for any style hike in more of a remote region....More

We had a group of 12, with a variety of ages. Very scenic, and very adaptable for a young family using a kid backpack carrier. Lots of trails to choose from,with a variety of different distances.

Incredible views, lots of places to park and stop to enjoy the water. Plenty of hiking spots. The roads are a little narrow but we were driving a suburban and did fine. Would definitely recommend taking a few hours to take in the beauty!

Great place for a warm-up hike for sea-level dwellers like ourselves. Beautiful area. Get there early to get a parking spot at the trailhead.
