  • We went in Oct so not too exciting but since it was 1 min drive from town we went there and it was a short hike and good for some pictures. 
  • We stopped in Ouray to see the falls while driving the Million Dollar Highway scenic byway. Fortunately, we could see the waterfall from a distance from several points around the town, because we coul...  read more »
  • Some spots can be dicey, but not scary, just wear the right shoes. The view down into the valley is beautiful, without having to climb like a mountain goat for a great perspective. 
  • 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!
  • 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!
  • Easy walk to get there and you can climb around the falls. Lots of fun, don't miss it!
  • The hike was quick and easy, and the falls were pretty. You can even go behind the waterfall! We we tried to go higher up on the trail it didn't seem like it was in the best shape. It was sometimes difficult to follow and even pretty narrow.
