As I've been asked a few times now for my favorite or my "must see" destination hikes in the Rockies, I decided to put together a short list. As I've surpassed 50 waterfalls and collected information on at least 60 of them here, I thought this might be a fair enough time to provide my assessment of the "best" trails thus far.
My runner-up is none other than Moonlight Falls and the Evan-Thomas Creek trail. This is a contender as, for no better reason, the waterfall itself is a absolutely stunning waterfall to marvel at in the winter. The contrasting colour of blue in the surrounding blanket of white snow; it's no wonder why it's a "must-climb" and talked about in ice climbing circles.
