  • Saw a sign on the main St of this quaint little town and thought we would stretch our legs and check it out. Free parking area at the base and well marked trail. It's kind of steep but a short hike to...  more »
  • Husband and I did this hike but didn't know we could drive up and park. We walked all the way up from main street and it was a steep hike. If your not in good shape I would recommend you drive up and ...  more »
  • It's a short hike uphill. The falls is very pretty and picture perfect. Takes 10 min. Can be slick in the rain.  more »

  • Beautiful little park right on the edge of town. There were multiple trails but we only went to the waterfall and turned around. It only takes 5 min from the parking lot. There's another trail that goes up the side of the falls that has a fantastic view of Ouray and the surrounding mountains. Great little place.
  • The last in a series of 7 waterfalls along Cascade Creek which runs out from Cascade Mountain, this waterfall is easy to access and beautiful. By easy to access, I mean REALLY easy. The parking is at the end of 8th Ave. just walk a (steep) 5 minutes alongside the creek to the waterfall. By beautiful, I mean REALLY stunning. I visited in August, when the water wasn't flowing too strong, on an overcast afternoon. It was especially neat to be able to stand so near to something so majestic!! It's also super easy to climb around the rocks at the base, feel the cold mountain runoff, and take some neat pictures! Plus, if you're a Winnie the Pooh fan, the bridge that crosses the creek is absolutely perfect for a game of Pooh Sticks. All in all, my family and I loved it. What a simple, beautiful, easy-access park! Worth visiting :)
  • Such a beautiful view I can't wait to hike up with my kids next summer!
  • Beautiful location that is well maintained and has some amazing trails.
  • Free parking. Very easy hike for even young kids to the base of the falls. Little pools to play in. More ambitious hikes to upper falls are possible.
