Rocky Falls

Route Overview

From the parking lot, walk back to the booth and cross the road, where there is access to the trails for Indian Pass and Mount Jo. You will start out moderately along a rocky and well-used trail and pass by the trails to Mount Jo.

Continuing on toward Indian Pass, you will hike along rolling hills and come to the spur trail for Rocky Falls on the right. It is a short distance down to the falls. There is a loop to and from the falls which you can use to climb back up to the Indian Pass Trail. There is roughly a quarter mile between the two access points to the falls. Both are marked.
