Horseshoe Falls Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Roaring River tumbles south toward Horseshoe Park in Rocky Mountain National Park, providing a dazzling display of many types of falls. From your viewing area— reached by paved trail—take in the stepped and stair-cased spectacle of fans, veils, horsetails, and slides that make up the chaotic cascade of Horseshoe Falls.

This is a short, easy hike to a large waterfall that's visible from the road and trail. There are some good interpretive signs along the path, including one that details the Lawn Lake Flood. In 1982, a dam break let loose twenty-nine million gallons of water, taking the lives of two campers at Aspenglen Campground and flooding Estes Park to the east."
