“Hike along Browns Creek, past a waterfall, and to a lake.”— Ryan Overton
This is a very fun trail to a spectacular waterfall. The hike has plenty of variety that will keep your interest including meadows, pine, and aspen forest. You'll be treated to many views of Mt Antero, and even get to test your balance by crossing Browns Creek via small log bridges.
The usage of the trail is moderate. You should expect to see 5-10 people on your hike.
The trail gains approximately 2400 ft in elevation.
Parts of the trail are sandy or have loose rock, so be prepared to get dusty, and you'll likely waste some energy on the soft ground.
