Gorgeous Waterfall Right Off the Road

Boulder Falls is a gorgeous waterfall of about 70 feet, and only about 100 yards from the parking area. A perfect place for family and friends who want to see the beauty of a large mountain waterfall without a grueling hike, Boulder Falls is an extremely popular spot.

The falls are right off of Boulder Canyon Drive (119), with a decent amount of parking. Be careful crossing the road, as cars often zip by quickly here and it is a bit of a tight curve. You can see the falls from the road. There are some stairs carved into the cliffside and a chain railing guiding you on the short path to the falls.

The falls themselves are breathtaking, a great place to relax and listen to the water. This is not much of a hike though, more just a few stairs to a large waterfall. And being such a pretty spot so close to the road, it gets quite busy.
