Our family, with great grandparents, and a four year old were able to enjoy this short hike together. Lovely streams, and easy path to a rushing cascade. Took lots of pictures. Flowers were sweet.

This is a fairly easy hike- allow 4 hours minimum since you will stop for pictures etc. Also, take plenty of water- we went through 4 (two each). The view long the way are amazing!

This is a really easy hike (good for all ages and abilities) that's a little out of the way but worth the drive. We came here on our first day in RMNP because we thought it would be less crowded and we were right. It...More

I try to come to RMNP once a year and when I do I typically hike this up to Ouzel Falls. This is the perfect hike to put the camera down, put the phone away, and just relax. You hike alongside the water all the...More
