Park was free to walkers in April (closed to vehicles), when we went. We parked across the street and just walked over. Pathways were easy to find, but some walking was difficult due to snow build up. It was well worth the attempt though for views at both the upper and lower falls

We really enjoyed the Box Canyon City Park. It has a bit of an elevation gain so it helps if you are in good shape (don't forget you are at elevation here). The paths meander around different parts of the park. Some take you by the river area below the falls and others up above them. The visitor center has flush toilets and some introductory displays. It should be noted that if you have a fear of heights and metal walkways where you can see down through them you might have some challenges on the walkway above the falls which leads to a tunnel and again on the walkways which take you down to the falls themselves. The other traveler's photos illustrate what I mean. if that doesn't bother you there are some great views of the falls and the valley throughout the park.

If you are in Ouray this is a must see. You just can't believe the majesty of this waterfall and the force that it presents. It is so powerful and beautiful. Well worth the time and money.

Very similar to the renown Partnach Klamm,in Europe, which features 700 meters (2,100 ft) length and 80 meters (240 ft) hight, Box Canyon, also displays an alpine setting and is an all year tourist very worth while attraction.

What an unique and inspiring place to visit. The falls are amazing, as is the walk to them. Highly recommend a visit to this treasure.
