Hike from Holden Village to see gorgeous falls. The 2015 Wolverine Fire burned through this area hard, and you can see the devastation. If it is a windy day be extra careful as these trees are dead or dying and will continue to fall for the next several years. Deer and bear are increasingly seen in the area of the trail as a result of the recent fires.
The Tenmile Falls trail is usually fully accessible during the summer, making it a nice option for anyone with physical limitations or families with small children.
Heading east out of Holden Village, follow the walking path, known as the Holden Hiker Trail (#1270), between Chalet 5 and Chalet 6. After leaving the village, the trail winds around large rocks, through aspen and Douglas fir forests to a view point. Here, you can rest on the benches available and look out to Copper Peak and over Copper and Railroad Creeks.
Go another 0.2 of a mile to find yourself on a viewing deck overlooking Tenmile Falls.
Past the falls overlook, the Tenmile Falls trail (#1241) narrows and begins switchbacking steeply uphill.
Holden's summer programming often includes a guided walk of this trail, discussing the flora and fauna to be seen as well as the post-fire forest ecology. Check the schedule located on the kiosk near the center of the village.
