The road to the Copeland/Calypso/Ouzel Falls trail head parking lot is closed so you will have to hoof it from the parking lot a mile away. Really snowy trail but nothing a good set of waterproof hiking boots cant handle. Copeland falls were starting to ice over and Calypso was almost hidden from the snow.

Amazing hike. Some snow on the ground but nothing dangerous. Kids (7,10) struggled a little at the end but still a good hike. Falls were stunning

Really fun trail with beautiful falls. We enjoyed how close you could get (in) to the falls. This trail does not allow dogs though. Wom wom.

Great trail with nice photo ops of the falls. Only tough place is at the top near Calypso falls. Copeland falls is only .3m from trailhead but still nice photo op.
Small privy at the top. OK for men but women....!?!?

This was a great hike to do with our 4 kids, (oldest is 10 youngest is 5). The trail follows water the whole way which makes it fun. There was a lot of traffic on the path so the only wildlife we saw was a couple hungry chipmunks.

Nice hike to some decent waterfalls. We did this one on the drive up from Denver, which I think made for a great intro to RMNP.

Great hike, not too difficult but you could go for a long time if you wanted to. I have taken two family members here when they have visited and they have both really enjoyed it. Make sure to get here really early or in the afternoon when people are leaving from their morning hike because of parking.

Beautiful river, beautiful falls, beautiful flowers, and beautiful weather. Who could ask for more. Arrive early. We were the first on the trail at 7:30. The trail and lot were both full at 11:00.
