Hiking to the base of the Falls can be a bit daunting, especially for the very young and those up in years. But if you can make it to the end of the trail, the waterfall is beautiful. Wear good hiking shoes and know the...More

Just past the Mt Princeton Campground on the right as you head toward St. Elmo. There's a parking lot with some information signs, but it's a little bit confusing. Take the trail that starts right next to the Agnes Vaille sign. The trail splits after...More

This was a return visit from years ago. We liked it and had no problem finding the path or way forward to the falls. A sign is posted warning of danger beyond the main trail to see the fall. We carefully made our way to...More

Not much water coming over the falls. If you are making the hike to see this waterfall it is probably not worth your time or energy. The views of the mountains from the falls is great.

Took our kids ages 8 and 9 on this hike. Beautiful views and great scenery. Kids found the length perfect and held their interest the whole time. You gain a fair amount of elevation, so adults feel they are getting a bit of a workout...More
