Located along the famed Million Dollar Highway, Box Canyon Waterfall & Park features several trails and a suspension bridge that lead to an 87 m (285 ft) tall waterfall. Walking trails range from easy to moderate, and they all lead to different points where you can observe the falls, which roar with thousands of gallons of mountain runoff. The park, named a significant birding site by the National Audubon Society, is home to Colorado's largest population of black swift. The area also has picnic spots and gazebos with grills, as well as a visitor center with interpretive exhibits on the park's geology, history, and plant and animal life. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Ouray holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Box Canyon Waterfall & Park and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
Box Canyon Waterfall & Park reviews
We had so much fun climbing here! He ice routes are very accessible. The terrain is beautiful. And it’s so close to a Ouray! more »
We are not climbers but love the outdoors. We made the very quick drive up to box canyon from Ouray and watched the ice climbers and admired the magnificent ice. Really cool experience! more »
The experience and views was much more than we expected. The canyon is just amazing to see and can only be seen within the park. The price to enter the park is very inexpensive and I can see how they need it to maintain it. Highly recommend a stop here. It is well worth it.
We had a great time at this amazing location. Walked up to the high bridge as well as down to the fall and other offers simply breathtaking views. Like others, I think $5 per person is too expensive, however I don't regret paying it one bit.
