Description

This awesome natural feature is formed where Ouzel Creek cascades over a 40-foot cliff on its way towards the North Saint Vrain. You'll be able to see the falls from the raised creek crossing, but there are unmarked trails leading to a better vantage point.

You'll kill three birds with one stone if you venture to Ouzel Falls given that you'll hike right past Copeland Falls and Calypso Cascades on the way to Ouzel Falls.

Half-Day Run: Park at the Wild Basin Trailhead and hike up the Wild Basin Trail for approximately 2.75 miles.
