Hike Summary: Visitors to Vail, as well as locals, hike up to Booth Falls because the 60- foot waterfall is lovely and the general belief is that the falls are easy to reach. But, believe me, this is no gentle alpine ramble. The hike to the falls is 1.9 miles one-way with an elevation gain of 1500 feet—not exactly a cakewalk. Moreover, Booth Lake is another 2.2 miles uphill with an additional elevation gain of another 1600 feet for a total gain of 3000 feet

Still snow as of 7/17/2011
