East Longs Peak Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"A good trail, two beautiful waterfalls, high lakes, and some of the tallest peaks in Rocky Mountain National Park make this hike one of the best! Just below Longs Peak, Chasm Lake shimmers and shines, and tips its waters east, sending them cascading down a jumble of rocks at “Chasm Lake Falls.”

They travel just a short distance before spilling again, into a long plunge at Columbine Falls. The aqueous display rests at Peacock Pool, then moves east, through the Roaring Fork drainage."
