Hike to Ouzel Falls
Colorado › Wild Basin Trailhead
Added by Rosie Davies
Beautiful, relatively easy hike to multiple waterfalls!
Located right outside of Rocky Mountain National Park, this hike is perfect for anyone looking to do a little exploring without the cost of a park fee. The drive through the Rocky Mountains to the trailhead is an added bonus. This hike is great because it has multiple attractions all along the way. Not long after you begin the hike you come across Copeland Falls and then shortly after you run into Calypso Cascades. The trail is very well marked and full of exciting features. Once Ouzel Falls is reached there is an option to continue on to Bluebird Lake.

Beautiful easy hike
This was a very nice hike with lots of beautiful waterfalls to see. I thought that Calypso Cascade Falls was the more photogenic but both were beautiful. I went in late spring when the water was raging to its fullest. I plan to come back some time in the fall when the leaves change due to the plenty of aspens.
