“Deservedly one of the most popular trails in Vail, up to a waterfall and back.”— Nick Wilder
You'll reach the falls in about 2 miles, and there are several vantage points to scout out. Some of the viewpoints are slick and dangerous - don't go right to the edge!
Once you've had your fill of the falls, make your way back down the same trail to the trailhead. On the way back, you'll have expansive views of the drainage that you climbed and the larger Vail Valley.
