We took this hike with our three small children. It was beautiful and they still see the pictures and want to go again! I would highly recommend this quick, easy hike for anyone visiting Ouray!

Fun short hike, love the spot. Very relaxing to watch and listen to the water. Right in town. Good place for a picnic lunch.

This is a little bit of an uphill climb probably easy for some, but short hike and well worth the time.

We had a good time with the family here. Most places good for the little kids to join as well. Good views!

The falls are pretty and the trail is short and easy to get to. It makes a nice walk before or after dinner!

The hiking was excellent and the snow made for a real challenge. We took it up to the old shack at the end of the trail and didn't regret the 8 miles.

Another site to be viewed as one hikes the Perimeter Trail. There is a trail that goes directly to the falls also.

This is a rocky hike up to the falls. Loved It! You can get right up to the waterfall. Not a long hike from the parking lot.

Easy hike/walk to get to these lower falls, even though it is UP HILL on the way to get there (down hill on the way back of course). Just take it slow if you are from lower elevations.
