This Hike In Colorado Will Make You Feel Like A Hero

A few days ago, we brought you 11 Unbelievable Colorado Waterfalls Hiding In Plain Sight… No Hiking Required. Today we are doing a complete 180° and bringing you one of the most difficult, yet most rewarding waterfall hikes in the state. If you are a beginning hiker (like myself), start practicing so you can work your way up to this gorgeous hike. If you are an expert, slip on your hiking boots and get ready to conquer Rocky Mountain National Park’s Timberline Falls.

In case you didn’t see the previous pictures:

Does that answer your question?
