  • It’s always pleasant to come along a waterfall while hiking in the Rocky Mountains. This delightful waterfall certainly added to our experience.
  • Fern Falls is a 60 foot waterfall on Fern Creek downstream of Fern Lake. It's about 3 miles from Fern Lake trailhead. We visited on a shuttle hike from Bear Lake to Fern Lake. We didn't arrive until afternoon and the sun was shining right on it. But still a nice waterfall and spot for a break. Try to visit in the morning for best pictures.
