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.
