Located along the famed Million Dollar Highway, Box Canyon Waterfall & Park features several trails and a suspension bridge that lead to an 87 m (285 ft) tall waterfall. Walking trails range from easy to moderate, and they all lead to different points where you can observe the falls, which roar with thousands of gallons of mountain runoff. The park, named a significant birding site by the National Audubon Society, is home to Colorado's largest population of black swift. The area also has picnic spots and gazebos with grills, as well as a visitor center with interpretive exhibits on the park's geology, history, and plant and animal life. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Ouray holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Box Canyon Waterfall & Park and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
Box Canyon Waterfall & Park reviews
Beautiful falls in an engineering feat setting. Look for the abandoned wench. Hike up over the falls or down to the bottom. Dogs are not allowed. $5 entrance fee but worth it fir how well... more »
Waterfall will amaze you with its power. The view is best from the bottom, not high up by the bridge. Sturdy metal steps lead down. The falls come out of a cave with such power they go sideways... more »
The experience and views was much more than we expected. The canyon is just amazing to see and can only be seen within the park. The price to enter the park is very inexpensive and I can see how they need it to maintain it. Highly recommend a stop here. It is well worth it.
We had a great time at this amazing location. Walked up to the high bridge as well as down to the fall and other offers simply breathtaking views. Like others, I think $5 per person is too expensive, however I don't regret paying it one bit.
