12-31 Snowshoe outing. Saw plenty of people in only hiking boots but it might be tough without snowshoes or tracks on the steep last half mile to the cascades. Mostly frozen and snow covered so not as impressive as in summer but still a great hike. The winter parking area adds a mile on to the hike each way. The restroom was open at the summer parking area though so that was nice.

Went last week. This is a nice, easy hike that passes through areas of dense forest. There were still yellow leaves on the trees and we brought our 7m and 2y old in the backpacks with no issues. Flat ground with a handful of slight inclines. Nice area for a short dayhike.

We ran the adjacent horse trail in to increase difficulty and to to have an easy option on day one altitude acclimatization It increases both distance and difficulty Running GPS app called it 2.9 miles out and back from wild basin area parking, first lot.

Enjoyed trail yesterday. Last time I was on this trail, it was in the 40's and a major downpour came when I was the furthest from my ride. Great spot, scenic and memorable.

Pretty nice, but just continue on the trail so that you can also experience the other two waterfalls, especially Ouzell.

Copeland Falls is a nice easy trail leading to Copeland Falls and is suitable for all ages. A lot of picture opportunities, and beautiful scenery. If you hike to Copeland Falls you might as well continue onto Calypso Cascades at minimum if not also Ouzell falls as well.
