Colorado Boulder Falls

Added by Billy DiMirra

Take a quick walk to this 70-ft waterfall, just 20 minutes from Boulder.

While the narrow trail is often popular, it's only 100 yards to see this 70-ft tall waterfall, set against a beautiful canyon backdrop. Keep in mind there's no climbing allowed on or around the falls. It is also a good idea to check if the trail is closed for maintenance, ahead of time.

I really enjoyed viewing this falls in person, it's just rocky and not super photographic like most Colorado falls.
