“Short hike/walk to Waterfall”

Ranked #9 of 35 things to do in Ouray
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 30 October 2013

We intended to do this short somewhat steep hike. There was already ice forming. We extended our trip to include part of the Perimeter Trail.

This was worth the time and effort.

Plenty of free parking space. From Main Street (also 3rd) head east on 8th up the hill until you get to the parking lot a few blocks away.

Such a wonderful trail up and around the falls, and right in town! The waterfall was amazing and the trails were gentle enough for casual walking or could be challenging -- whichever you choose.

We stopped here on the suggestion from the staff at The Hot Springs Inn. Very easy hike, probably 10-12 minutes, tops. The Falls here are spectacular and give you a good feel for Ouray's beauty. Definitely worth the stop!

For those new to Ouray suggest that you drive up to the parking lot and then begin the trail. Take your time, catch your breath. Trail isn't all that long and will take you to the base of the waterfall that is always running. For those with limited hiking ability, a walking stick will help to keep balance. Take your time, don't give up, you'll make it!

This waterfall is very easy to get to. The hike is easy and does not take a long time. There is a trail to go to the top of the waterfall but it was closed when my husband and I were there. Worth seeing and does not take too much time.
