“Trail still closed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014

Pretty canyon and area, but the Agnes Vaille Falls trail continues to be closed in late May 2014 because of the rock slide six months or longer earlier. Parking lot is chained off so that people don't pull in and start up the trail, despite the closure signs. From the road you can catch a glimpse of the Falls, which look stunning and like there is lots of water flowing this year. But sadly cannot hike the trail. Campground across the street also looks inviting.
There is an outstanding wildlife preserve at the Love Meadow not far on the road, wherein we saw bighorn sheep, deer and prairie dogs--and became our alternative stop for the afternoon.

“A family tradition”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2014 via mobile

Our extended family of 27 has been hiking to the waterfall here every year for the past 10 years, and it is a tradition we will continue for as long as the trail is open

“Agnes Vaille Falls Trail Closed due to Rock Slides Sept 2013”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2013

Sadly, closed due to a massive rock slide just below the falls. Please check with local authorities before heading out, to see when/if it will reopen.

“In the Fall not so impressive.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2013

I hiked the 1/2 mile to the falls with my dog in late September. It's a low point in the water flow so the falls weren't that impressive but it's a nice hike with a trail that's easy to follow. A good view of the Denver, South Park and Pacific line on the other side of the canyon. The plaque explaining the naming of the falls is worth the hike.

“Great Moderate Hike”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2013

Save three hours and make sure you get all the way to the foot of the falls. Take time to turn around and savor the views.

In dry weather the footing was fine except near the foot of the falls.
