The beginning of the trail is wide and rocky.
At the first trail split, turn left.
About 1/3 of the way up the trail you can already see First Falls. IF you hike all the way up to Timp, you will actually see probably 10 waterfalls.
As you gain more elevation, you'll see a large cleared area on your left. This is from all the avalanches clearing this section over the years. You will also see that some trees grow straight out first, then up, since the avalanches groom them this way.
