  • Great stop along the way to timberline falls. A little crowded but still great scenery. Easy hike if it's your final destination.
  • Is very beautiful place
  • Nice waterfalls but fairly crowded. Get there early to beat the crowds
  • This was a nice, clearly marked trail that was snow-covered and slippery, but not overly treacherous. The falls were a bit meager in early April with the snow and ice surrounding them, but would be more robust in the summertime. It's worth the hike, especially when the snow has melted. Many folks donned snowshoes for the trail which weren't entirely necessarily, but would have been nice to have.
  • Great trail and beautiful scenery!

Where to stay in Rocky Mountain National Park

Camping offers one of the best ways to immerse yourself in the nature of Rocky Mountain National Park. The park offers more than 500 individual sites spread out over five developed campgrounds, and wilderness camping expands your options even further. Many visitors stay in the eastside gateway town of Estes Park, where you can choose from lodges, resorts, economy motels, small inns, bed and breakfasts, and cabins. The town features a lake and views of the park's sharp peaks. On the park's western side, a handful of lodges, inns, cabins, and motels are clustered around Grand Lake and Shadow Mountain Lake. You'll also find campgrounds around Lake Granby.
