The power of the waterfall is mesmerizing! Love the information boards along the way and the tunnel takes this over the top!

This is a beautiful waterfall. You have to walk through the mountain to see the waterfall coming down from the mountain top to the ground.

The trail to the bottom of the waterfall is quite manageable and well worth the effort. Absolute beauty and amazement when you see this natural wonder. The trip to the top of the hill was very difficult with the trail little more than a wash area in some spots. Would not rcommend this except for the young and fit.

This was a great attraction. What wasn't clear is there is an entry fee--according to the signs accessing the falls from Perimeter Trail, it was $3, but they charge $4. Regardless, it was worth the cost.

This is a great way to use an hour or so of free time in Ouray! Well done park and the falls are fantastic! We did not do the upper trail, but will do so next time thru. We were there in Sept, no ice yet. But the Falls are impressive in winter or summer.
