If you get the chance to stop by, do it. Its very cool. It doesn't take much time but you'll be glad you did. Have your camera or smart phone camera charged - you'll get some glorious shots that you won't get elsewhere.

Wear good snow/grip boots because this trail is not cleared of snow & ice but it's worth the trip up!!! Moderate uphill trek to concrete stairs (a bit treacherous & slippery with ice) to metal "boardwalk" that leads you around the mountain toward the falls. There are stairs down to the bottom of the falls and incredible views! OH- on the trek up, make sure to stop over the right and watch the ice climbers!!!

We took a short hike to see the Ice Park and Box Canyon waterfall.
It was snowy and icy but really beautiful and worthwhile. We hiked up to the bridge and through the tunnel. I felt like an Alpine mountaineer ! I had a hiking pole and hiking boots and that was helpful.

Be sure to visit Box Canyon Falls if you go to Ouray. The short hike to the waterfalls is very scenic and fun. You can also hike further up to the top of the falls for a different perspective. Great place to stretch you legs and get some great pictures.

A short walk or even shorter drive from Ouary, this is a quick side trip for some amazing views. Don't take the hike to the trip lightly. It may be short but there are some rocky areas that may be difficult for those with bad joints or poor stability. Get yourself used to the altitude before you try the 20 minute hike to the top of the falls. You must be able to walk stairs to get to the bottom of the falls.
