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

Take Hyw. 7 south out of Lyons, past Allenspark, to Wild Basin Trailhead.

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!

Nice hike for a family. Be sure to get there early in July, as the parking lot fills up and they start turning back cars. We were there on a Sunday by 8am with no problem finding parking. One of the main bridges is out, so we had to do a roundabout way to get to the falls, but not too much extra hiking and the view was worth it. We even got to see several Ouzel birds flitting around the falls.

Basically the entire trail goes next to a river. Beautiful views, nice resting spots. Relaxing and enjoyable.

This is a nice trail. Ouzel Falls is really cool looking when there is a lot of water flowing over it, especially when there is still snow on the ground.
