  • 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 »

  • The hike is one of the easier ones in the area, and the whole trail is absolutely beautiful. There were plenty of places to sit and rest if needed, and The scenery was incredible. The trail was busy, as this is one of the more popular hiking trails in the park, but everyone on the trail was very friendly, and despite the crowds the hike was still very serene!
  • The trail was relatively easy though it did gain a good but of elevation. Several water features along the way that are worth seeing. The falls were very nice. You could walk up to them and enjoy the spray on a nice hot day (like we had). We had 4 kids with us, all under the age of 9 and they did great. The youngest, almost 5, did struggle some on the way back, he was worn out.
  • Beautiful hike. 40ft waterfall, shaded trail along the creek. Only 6 miles roundtrip. Lots of places to play in the water. Abundant wildflowers in season. Glacial boulders. You cannot see the falls from the trail -- hike left before the bridge and get close to the falls.
  • Loved the falls along this trail and the 360 degree views above, top of the trail to Ouzel Lake. Just gorgeous!
  • Hiked mid May! Still a little cold and still rains during that time so get out early! Beautiful falls.
