It's one of the tourist stops along the canyon tour...the falls pretty much frozen but was not that impressed. It is a nice spot to stop and reflect a bit....very restful atmosphere.

We live in Springs and this is one of our favorite places to head for a quick hike or to sit quietly and relax. It is a popular tourist spot so can be congested in peak times, but still worth the visit. If you follow the trail past the falls there is a beautiful lookout over the canyon into Springs.... More

Nice hiking trails and not as busy as Seven Falls. We love hiking so this was nice to find some other trails and waterfalls.

The drive up to the falls was pleasant but the steps over the falls were very icy and difficult to hike while I visited

We just left and though most of the falls are frozen, it's a fun climb. A little ice in a few of the spots on the stairs but rails help with that. We climbed high. Free fun! Great picture spots.

I loved the falls themselves and could walk and climb (carefully) to the area to stand above them. Lots of rocky terrain beyond that, and going further up was impossible since I am physically limited, but plenty of families and others were enjoying the hike up. Takes only a short time to see the place otherwise. A historic log cabin... More

This was a fun free activity with 4 kids...lots of rain before we went but overall it was pretty and safe! Took some great pics and the trails weren't busy at all! Drive in was easy, get there early for parking and talk to the rangers for what rocks to look for! Have fun!

Visited with our children and grandchildren and the views are beautiful. It was also a great place for the children to let off steam.
