Lower Cascade Falls Trail | Uncompahgre National Forest
Ouray, CO | 08/02/19 | 0.52 miles | 209′ gain
Before heading home from our trip to Ouray, we wanted to hike to one of the waterfalls just outside town. There are a number to choose from, but we ultimately decided to visit the Lower Cascade Falls, and we were not disappointed.
The hike is short and sweet, perfect for an easy day. The falls are visible from a lower overlook, but we wanted to get closer, so we followed the Ouray Perimeter Trail up a short ways to the upper overlook.
The Lower Cascade Falls is the 7th in a series of waterfalls which can be reached via the Upper Cascade Falls Trail. I guess that just means we’ll have to come back another time!
