What a great hike! There was not many people there, its a bit out of the way but well worth your trip. The river runs most of the way up the trail with several places to stop and take great pictures. It's not a flat...More

We really enjoy going to the falls, especially in late May or June when the snow melts and it has greater flow. This is a beautiful hike in the Wild Basin area. Can be crowded in summer, but if you can find parking and have...More

About 0.3 miles into this 2 mile one way, hike you encounter Copeland Falls (add some mileage to the posted 1.7 because you will want to keep leaving the trail to get closer to water). For almost the entire remaining distance to Calypso Cascades you...More

This is a great trail if you have kiddos and are not an adventurous hiker. The trail passes a few falls on the way to Calypso Cascades (3.5 miles). The hike is beautiful. Get there early if you want to get a parking spot!

A well travelled hike with lots of shade for warm days - beautiful scenery and (of course) waterfalls!

This was a great milestone along the way to Ouzel Falls. For those who are able to park close and want a quick hike (walk) to a waterfall this may be a good option. Great for families and people of all ages to get to...More

On the way to Ouzel Falls is Calypso Cascades. I think the difference has to do with the "free fall" of the water. Calypso is actually a more interesting water feature feature to many and makes it a short trip

This was the prettiest hike from start to finish on our visit. It was along the trail almost the entire way. There mini cascades and beautiful views the whole way. Traveling on past the cascade to Ouzel Falls is well worth it also. The earlier...More

THe hike is in a less used part of the park which is great. The elevation gain is not to much and the trail is in the trees. The cascades are really pretty.
