Todays post is about a short, but beautiful hike we went on in Golden called Wapta Falls. At the end of the hike you are at the bottom of this beautiful waterfall with a mountain drop background.
It is about a 1.5 hour hike (2.3 km) with a 60m elevation loss walking down to the falls, which you regain on your way back up so be prepared! The trail is in pretty good condition, but near the end it gets quite narrow, so watch your footing! Its definitely worth the hike if you are in the area.
A back drop of mountains always surrounds you in Golden.
This was at the mid way point, not quite the best view of the falls just yet!
Almost at the best view …
This was how the trail looked closer to the bottom of the falls. The forest floor was covered in moss due to the moisture from the mist of the falls!
Tada! A view of the falls from the beach down below. You can see the massive amount of mist in the air coming off of the bottom of the falls.
Well I hope you enjoyed this quick little extra post for the week. Let me know if you have ever done this hike, or others you have done in this area!
Until next time,
