Waterfall flow updates?

Hoping someone who has been through RMNP lately can give me an update on the flow of the waterfalls in the area (Alluvial Fan, Adams, and Alberta). Are they still worth a stop or are they dry at this point?

Yes, they are all worth a stop and if you have not seen them in years with normal to high snowpack, you will not know the difference. Recent rains have probably improved the flow. These 3 waterfalls are always good even when frozen or partially frozen in the winter. The trail to the waterfall at Alluvial Fan is only .2 miles and Adams Falls .3 miles. Be aware of Bear Lake Road reconstruction issues for Alberta Falls. There are already discussions about this on the forum. Copeland Falls at only .3 miles from the Wild Basin TH is also nice. Someone said Boulder Falls in Boulder Canyon was good, too if you happen to be coming that way from Denver to Estes.

Here is a trip report for someone who visited all 3 falls you mentioned plus Copeland July 4-6. tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g143048-i3489-k557…
