Went back to Ouray & revisited a place we camped for a week when i was a boy, spent my 12 birthday in Ouray over 4th of July,
The Box Canyon Falls is a winter mecca for Ice climbers & breathtakingly beautiful in the summer
is as beautiful as ever & the Hot springs pool seems smaller now than it was in the70's

My husband and I went on all three trails. They are small and easy hikes.The one trail to the waterfall was very nice. It was very enjoyable. These are easy trails that can be done in less than two hours. You do not need to dedicate an entire day. Worth seeing!

We went there to see the waterfall and man was it nice and powerful. They have 3 trails there that you can take to see the falls. One will take you up 200 feet in elevation with stairs and you will go above the falls and can cross a bridge. The nature one lets you see the native plants there and has no stairs until you get to the falls themselves. If you want, there are stairs to take you to the bottom of the falls. What an awesome sight to see.

I have seen a fair amount of waterfalls but this was unlike any of them. The canyon is so tight it is almost amazing. You can get right down by the falls or hike up and look down from a bridge above. I initially was going to skip this but found it was well worth the nominal fee to see it.

This is a location worth visiting. We visited the location on the day we were leaving and had actually headed north, leaving town, and then turned around to see the Canyon Falls. We are pleased that we did. The hike to the falls is mostly easy. We also took the hike to see the falls from above. This was a more difficult hike but well worth it.
