Jaws Falls RMNP

Postby CSUMarmot » Mon Jan 30, 2012 5:06 am

It seems like I've asked this before, but can anyone give me a description/topo drawing/coordinates of where Jaws Falls is? I just now got around to finding Hidden Falls, but I have a feeling this one's harder to locate. I've also heard it doesnt always form during the winter, so does anyone know if it's in now?

I don't have first hand knowledge, but it seems that it's been too warm to form. See Eli's post on page 13 of the CO Ice Conditions thread on MP: http://mountainproject.com/v/the-2011-12-colorado-ice-conditions-thread/107318739__13

I haven't been up that way lately, but with the sun and wind this winter it's doubtful that it's in. It may be partially formed but the ice on the left side will be very thin if it's there at all.

As far as finding it, drive up the Moraine Park road as far as you can, then hike up the road. It's just off the road/trail on the right. Can't miss it.
Even if there's as little ice as everyone's saying, there'll be enough to spot it. Since it's just off the road, you don't need to look through spaces in the trees across the valley like you do finding Hidden Falls. spitting distance.

Any idea of the mileage from the TH(not the winter lot)? I'm assuming its about a half mile or so before Arch Rocks
