Summer 2010 Hikes--St. Mary's Falls

I've been wanting to take the girls on this hike since last summer. It begins on an aspen shaded trail that slopes gently upward next to Buffalo Canyon Creek. The last mile is rather steep, but a good trail, with awesome views of the city and the Broadmoor Hotel around almost every bend. Round trip is about 6 miles.

The trail marker is about 1.5 miles from the parking area

I tried with shoes after this attempt!
