Great hike up to Booth Falls with a complaining teen daughter and a whining 7 year old son! Not to mention a wife blaming me for not being at the falls an hour ago. Of course I told her that the trail and falls were...More

This is a true hike and not just a walk in the woods! Let me first say that I am from the midwest and the elevation probably made this quite a bit more challenging for me than some other hikers may find it. If you...More

Perfect hike for a half day outing, it does live up to it's rating as moderate in severity. The two mile approach to the falls is almost continuously uphill and gets a lot more treacherous as you approach your destination. We did have to cross...More

Decided to take a day off skiing and had perfect day for hike to Booth Falls! Mostly hard packed snow until halfway and then wished we had snowshoes. Sometimes stepped into thigh deep snow! Needed hiking boots with gaiters to prevent soaked feet! Luckily had...More

Scenic diverse hike that wasn't too difficult. Starting from the parking lot you ascend quickly and after passing through birch and forested areas walk through mountain meadows enrout to the falls. My perfectly sunny afternoon changed quickly with rain/storm clouds and required double-time to make...More

Wow we loved this trail. A moderate hike with beautiful views of aspens and waterfalls. The trail can be very busy and parking is hard to find. Once you reach the falls you can climb down and enjoy the view and a snack. An out...More

This is a relentlessly uphill climb, 900 feet in the first 50 minutes but very doable and worth the effort. Nice mix of sunshine and shades tree cover. This would be unbelievable during fall colors. So close to Vail; very easy to get to the...More

As long as there is no snow or rain then I'm sure you can. We hiked in October and the ground was nice and dry. It's not a super difficult hike.

No. Sorry so late to respond. Should be great to spike hike or snowshoe this time of year.

How is this hike in July? I'm wondering specifically about mosquitoes. Are they really bad? Coming from the east coast I'm used to them to some degree. Not sure if there are any hikes that I wouldn't encounter them in summer.

I would not worry about mosquito! Rub some Tea Trea oil on yourself to repel any if they are around and enjoy nature!!!
