Everyone In Denver Must Visit This Epic Waterfall As Soon As Possible

The short, gentle hike to Adams Falls in Rocky Mountain National Park near Grand Lake is an ideal family-friendly day trip from the Mile High City that’s accessible to all levels of hikers. Many of Colorado’s most breathtaking waterfalls are hidden deep in our state and national parks and often require long, strenuous treks that are difficult for most, making this beautiful waterfall near Denver (only about a two hour drive from the city) somewhat of a novelty. A roundtrip distance of less than a mile and a minimal amount of elevation gain with outstanding views of forests, meadows, lakes, streams, and more, makes the jaunt to Adams Falls a win for the whole family!
