Great hike. Beautiful cascades at the end. This was on the easy side of a moderate hike.

A great trail; wether you're a beginner or an experienced hiker. You'll experience a variety of terrain along the way to the Calypso Cascades. Definitely a beautiful and calming experience. But don't stop there! Go the extra 0.9 miles to Ouzel Falls; you won't be disappointed! And be sure to take the trail up to the main falls; if you're extra adventurous, you can climb right up to the base of the main waterfall. Enjoy

Passed this while going to Ouzel Falls. This was a beautiful place to see how water creates it's own path. With little experience took us a little while to get there, but worth our time.

Beautiful trail! Limited parking available. The trail starts with a good jaunt uphill to get the heart going and becomes increasingly beautiful as you approach the cascades.

Beautiful trail, well marked with scenes galore. Advise at least 1 hiking pole for anyone with balance issues to maneuver around natural steps. Very quiet trail with lots of options to connect to other trails.
