This trail was in Colorado Springs, and admittedly I am not too familiar with that area and my roommate at the time was who took me on this trail, it is a longer trail (6.3) miles, out and back, with about 1,400 feet of elevation gain. The trail was busier towards the beginning but few people once we got towards the falls. Dog friendly and appropriate, parking was scarce when we got there but it was later in the day. Sunscreen is a must for the first few miles but then you get a lot more tree cover and shade. This was a very nice day trip, it wasn’t as “waterfall” like as you’d expect but it was still very pretty and I enjoyed the trip ☺️
The incredible scenery of the nearby mountains and wildlife make the falls in Colorado Springs an unforgettable hike.
