Nice hike near Ouray to a foot bridge with great views. There is an access fee to these falls for $3 per adult. From the nature center simply follow the labeled trail that will start up a steep set of stairs and then continue ascending the hill until your reach a steel bridge across Box Canyon. Below you will be the falls though they are hard to see from this vantage point.

Love this waterfall! It's beautiful and for a small price you can use the stairwell to the bottom. You can also climb up to the bridge across the top which connects to the Ouray Perimeter Trail.
