“Best views of Ouray”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

It was a moderate to difficult hike which offered the nicest views of the town from high up. If you get tired,you can always get off it and walk into town.

“Just a Part of the Trail”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

From Ouray to Box Canyon Bridge. Well worth the hike view of the falls and the town was magnificent. The tunnel through the rock to the bridge was also very cool. Take water watch for wind at the bridge.

“Don't miss this hike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

While it seems most folks come here to ride around in ATVs or Jeeps, this trail is what Colorado is all about. Take lots of water and don't rush. We spent 3 hours walking the 4.5 mile loop and enjoyed every minute, as did our two dogs.

“Great views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

I liked that we were able to walk from our hotel to one of the trailheads for this trail. It was challenging, in large part because of the elevation of over 9000 feet, and it is rather steep in places. But the views of Ouray and the surrounding mountains were well worth it. I really liked the fact that there were numerous trailheads throughout town so you can only walk as far as you want to. Hiking up to Lower Cascade Falls and looking at the town below reminded me of a miniature Yosemite Park--just as beautiful but so much more accessible.
