Well-traveled trail from Allen Park trailhead with many people at cascades and falls on a summer Saturday.

The falls are beautiful and safe for horses. My green 4 y got practice with water crossings and steps. They were beginning to replace washed out bridge to be able to continue on. Hikers were polite.

Beautiful hike. Went all the way to the lake and it was definitely worth the extra couple miles!

Beautiful creek and waterfall views as you hike this moderate trail. We did this hike with a 10 year old and she really enjoyed it. Plenty of places to stop and view the creek on your way. This trail gets very busy by 10:00, luckily we were done and headed out by then. If you don't arrive early, you may have to park up to a mile away from the trailhead.

Firstly, it is in Rocky Mountain National Park. So day fees apply. That said, well worth the hike. Parking is a problem the later in the morning...

Pretty wonderful! A fairly easy, yet scenic hike. The rushing creek at Copeland Falls and the actual Ouzel Fall at destination make up for the lack of wide angle vistas and panoramas. That being said, it is worth going the extra effort to hike to the top of the ouzel Fall by the left side to be treated on the way to an abundance of wild flowers and, at the top, a good panorama of the surrounding Rockies.
Our daughter Claire and I hiked in mostly overcast weather and it was still beautiful!

Nice hike for just about anyone to do. Did started at 4pm and had plenty of time to complete. For more adventure, scramble up the left side of the falls to the top of the plateau for big views and a chance to get to the river above.

Amazing. But leave early. we hit the trail at 7:45. with no crowds we took some great pictures. Trail was very crowded on way down, no way to take good photos with all the people.

This was a gorgeous and challenge. Really beautiful views and waterfalls. This is where my now husband proposed--on a huge rock cliff at the waterfall.

Nice trail, walk is about a mile from parking if you don't get there early. Highly trafficked but pretty. The falls were a little underwhelming but still worth it.

One of the better hikes I've been on. Trails are well maintained, and the scenery is everything you would want it to be. I'll be going back to this one.

Did this hike last year. It had pretty views but I was a little disappointed with the waterfall. Nothing overly grand, but I'd definitely go again. Calypso Falls on route was pretty. Easy hike, we took a few beginners one of which had a heart condition and they made it the whole way and back with little trouble.

Beautiful hike with most of it along the water and with a spectacular waterfall at the top. Gradual incline most of the way to the falls, making for an easy hike back. Really a lot of people, though. Went on a Tuesday and it was packed.
