Fern Falls:   D/R/E: 5 miles - 645' elevation gain
Hiking Distance Is The Total Length Of The Hike

The Fern Lake Trail often emerges from the forest into meadows opened by beavers removing aspen. Throughout the warm months, these meadows produce many wildflowers that brighten the open spots with masses of color. Arch Rocks, which probably fell from the cliffs above rather than being deposited by retreating glaciers, are interesting megaliths along the trail. The Pool is a wide spot where a bridge crosses the Big Thompson River, providing a sturdy platform for viewing swirling patterns of white water. The hike to Fern Falls is a bit steep, but the view of the falls is worth the extra effort (especially in the late spring or early summer months when the water is flowing the fastest).
