Very good hike. Took it last Sept alone and plan to take extended family in July.

This is a short and beautiful hike. The hike is about 5.5 miles round trip with so much to see. The last 1.5 miles getting to the waterfall is a little strenuous other than that it's a very relaxing hike. This is a must do!

Short, easy, a lot of people. Waterfalls were pretty.

Ouzel Falls is a part of the Wild Basin area and is one of my favorite areas to go hiking and snowshoeing. If you like being near water when you hike then you'll love this one. The hike to Ouzel takes you past Copeland Falls and Calypso Cascades as you follow the water all along the way. The trek from Calypso to Ouzel gets a bit more steep than the rest but well worth the effort.

One of the most beautiful trails we've hit yet. Took my wife and 3 young kids on this trail and while we didn't quite make it to the falls due to weather, the entire route was breathtaking. Will definitely return to do this one again.

This is a great hike with a family, very easy trail. However, we wanted more, so we hit up the falls on their "alternate" trail due to the bridge being out and then continued on to Ouzel Lake to add some miles to the hike. I uploaded pics on the lake trail, but the falls are very beautiful nonetheless. Lots of wildflowers are out as well!
