Million Dollar Views for Nothing
Spring in Colorado means waterfalls are everywhere, and hiking is the best way to get to them. One of the local favorites is Booth Falls in Vail. This moderately challenging hike will have you crossing multiple streams and passing large meadows before you reach the gushing waterfall at the top. Be on the look out for several smaller waterfalls during the hike up.
Nothing says Colorado Summer like a hike on Upper Piney Trail. One of the quintessential hikes in the Vail Valley, the trail starts at picturesque Piney Lake and is very gentle as it climbs through open meadow before entering forest and reaching a cascading waterfall at about 3 miles. This is a good easy destination for the average hiker. Don’t miss the photo-op down by the lake of the sign post labeled simply, “Wilderness”.
