  • My wife and I had some anniversary pictures taken here and the setting was perfect. Plenty of space for kids to roam and explore as well (if we had brought them along ...).  more »
  • Fun, easy hike. Good falls. Lots of people as it is easy. Locals run through on trails and the water hits a different spot every drop. Wonderful place to see nature and beauty.  more »

  • Short, but steep hike to the waterfall. Well worth it!
  • Easy hike to beautiful falls! Our 2 year old was able to walk this one with little assistance from us, which she loved. The water is shallow enough that you can get close to the falls without worrying about getting swept downstream. We were there in July, so early melt-off may make the water a bit more quick moving and late fall may see it a bit dried up.
  • Awesome water fall even when the creek is low! It is a beautiful water fall. You can hike all around it and see from any angle you want. This water fall is also great for kids because they can splashed by the mist and climb on the rocks. Totally worth visiting!
  • Beautiful waterfall, very close to town. It's super easy to access with the base of the fall being just off main street and very close to the parking lot (less than a 5 minute walk). Definitely recommend stopping there if your in Ouray. Also has a few picnic tables.
  • An easy hike from parking (or just about anywhere in Ouray) to some pretty nice falls. You can cross the river easily at the falls and continue a good distance along an adjoining trail system. The deer like it too, we saw three stags lounging calmly in the trees right off the trail!
