“Beautiful waterfall”

Reviewed August 20, 2014

This was a beautiful waterfall with great places to take pictures. We saw one group of people taking senior pictures there. It would also be a great place to take engagement or bride pictures. You do have to do some climbing, but nothing that can't be done in the right pair of shoes.

Be sure to put this on your short list of things to do in Ouray. The trailhead is at the end of a steep street, and while the trail to the base of the falls is rather steep, it's also short, and easy to do for families with young kids. There is no charge for the hike, and kids can play at the base of the falls. Better yet, there is a way that you can take a short trail to walk "behind" the falls. (Take the trail up to the left of the falls.) If you don't have time to do many things in Ouray, this should make your "short list", along with the hot springs.

Signs showing where to go. Plenty of parking & no charge to see it. Nice walk to the falls. Did it in flip flops because I didn't have other shoes w/me, but wear better shoes if you have them. Can essentially walk up underneath the falls... Very refreshing & relaxing! Plenty of rocks to sit on to just relax & take in the scenery. Weren't many people there that day so it was nice & peaceful.

This beautiful little gem is free, close to downtown, and offers a kid friendly hike to the base of the falls. There is also a covered bench area allowing a close and beautiful view of the falls, without the short hike.
