Hike to St. Mary's Falls
Colorado › St. Mary's Falls Trailhead
Added by The Outbound Collective
A great workout with a waterfall at the end, and scenic views.
From the parking area, follow the trail as it heads up towards the falls. The last mile, in particular, makes for a decent uphill challenge. This hike and waterfall are great for showing family and friends.

Hard To Access
This trail is off of a 15 mi dirt road. It was accessible until about 2 mi away from trailhead, then because extremely rough road. 4x4 access only, if that. Very beautiful drive, but long and without a trail to hike since my SUV was not going to make the final 2 miles. Disappointed.

Hike to Mt. Rosa
Colorado / Frosty Park
To get to the trailhead start on Old Stage Rd. After 11 miles turn right onto Forest Service Rd 379. This is a 4WD road. A small/large SUV, or truck should do the trick, nothing too crazy though.
