Meditation Falls

Meditation Falls is located on the Boulder River Trail and is about a 3 mile hike one way.  This unnamed stream forms a horsetail as it drops down about 60 feet becoming a tributary of the Boulder River. Meditation Falls is a popular name given to this beautiful waterfall.  There is a mossy knoll along the river that seems to beckon to those passing by to sit awhile and let the waterfall and river cast their spell.
