Horsetail falls are a beautiful must see trail for anyone traveling on the 50 corridor, but the hike to the very top is not for everyone. You can hike to middle falls on a safe trail to beautiful vistas. However, the trail from middle falls to the top is not well marked, very steep and you are either bouldering or scrambling, sometimes up and down very steep granite and rock. If you go all the way up, stay closer to the water vs veering off to the left. It gets much steeper if you turn left too soon! There are great lakes behind the falls once you reach the top and the views and acccess to pyramid are great!
