  • My wife and I are in our mid-fifties and took three hikes in our to Fort Collins. All our hikes were tremendous, but Ouzel Falls was our most enjoyable. Other hikes were rated higher, but this was the...  more »
  • This hike can be done by almost anyone if you just venture to Ouzel Falls. The trip to Ouzel Lake is worth the trip if you continue on but there is certainly more elevation gain and it makes the hike ...  more »

  • Great hike. Just like everyone says it’s in a remote corner of Rocky Mountain NPS and is worth checking out. For a little over 5 miles total it does end up taking longer than expected but it’s worth it.
  • Great walk in this hidden corner of RMNP Takes about three hours. Quite a long up hill all the way to the falls but plenty of interesting cascades to stop at on the way up. Very few people here compared to the roads from Estes Park.
  • Good hike. Keep driving down the road to find more parking. Also once you get to the sign that says ouzel falls, keep climbing up to the left of the bridge. It will get you closer to the waterfall and also there's a nice rock up there where you can sit and eat.
  • Great moderate hike for folks getting adjusted to the altitude, and also for hotter, sunny days, as it's mostly in the shade. The grade is pretty gradual, and you cross over the stream several times, allowing for some great views up and down stream. Might be a fee to park before trailhead, depending on when you go.
  • Great hike with views, lots of friendly wildlife around and lakes upon lakes. Moderate, great for training. Looking forward to to next hike.
