“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014

Amazing visually. . hike high above and down to the base of an amazing blast of water blasting out the gorge. Good for kids, just take your time, given the elevation

“Beautiful place to visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014

This place has to be seen to believed. The noise is unbelievable. A little scary for me on the stairs and I didn't walk to the bottom, but definitely worth the visit.

“Amazing Views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

If you are in Ouray you need to stop by here and check it out. 4.00$ a person is very worthwhile price for this attraction. Climb up both sets of stairs and if you have time take the trail down from the top of the waterfall back to town.

“Nice for a one time thing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014

Box Canyon is pretty, and was fun to take the tour. However, once is good enough. Been there, done that.

“Nice place to visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014

This is a nice place to get up close to the bottom of a waterfall. Trail to the bottom is easy, even though it involves some stairs (I think around 22 steps). Trail to the top involves LOTS of stairs, so I didn't take it. But another family member did and said it was a nice view from up there as well. The road to enter the park is just immediately outside of Ouray and is one-way and the road leaving is also one-way and takes you back into Ouray. The cashier taking our money for admission to the Falls was quite annoyed when my husband and I paid for our admissions and another relative (who was paying their own way) paid for their admission. The issue seemed to be that he had to run two credit card transactions. It was a little odd that he felt like he should be able to dictate to us who paid for which of our admissions, plus if you accept credit cards, then you shouldn't act annoyed when people use them. But he did let us pay how we wanted, just wasn't too happy about it.
