Description

This waterfall is easily accessible and has some really cool water. You can enjoy the water, and it is a great place to take dogs. The Horsetooth Falls Out and Back leads right to it. Families and dogs also enjoy hiking on the trail, and it is not to much work to get to it.

Short Hike: The waterfall is only about 1.2 miles from the parking lot at the end of the Horsetooth Falls Out and Back.

Family Friendly: Fun for the whole family to play in the water.
