Copeland Falls to Calypso Cascades is a 3.5 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Allenspark, Colorado that features a waterfall. The trail is good for all skill levels and primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding.
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.
Great views and easy enough to complete in flip flops!
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.
Beautiful walk, very easy.
Great walk. Light snow was falling.
Pretty nice, but just continue on the trail so that you can also experience the other two waterfalls, especially Ouzell.
Nice quick hike for those who can't do long hikes.
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.
Nice trail shady and follows the river. This hike I would choose to do every year.
V easy trail and pretty falls on the way to Calypso cascades and Ouzel falls. Not as spectacular as the other two but still quite nice.i
Much different now vs. August with the rain and snow melt!!
