This hike was stunningly beautiful from start to finish – including the incredible drive in. Plus it has everything: views, fall colors and a waterfall! The first 1.5 miles are a little steep and rocky at times but there are tons of viewpoints to stop at and catch your breath. Beyond that, it’s a fairly easy walk through the woods to the falls. You’re following Browns Creek for most of the trail with a few fun bridges and trout sightings.
The trail is well maintained, easy to follow and an absolutely must when you’re down near Buena Vista or Salida!
