Hiking: Ouzel Falls at Wild Basin (RMNP)


Wild Basin to Ouzel Falls
The hike to Ouzel Falls begins from the fairly remote Wild Basin Trailhead in the southeastern corner of Rocky Mountain National Park, located near the small communities of Meeker Park and Allenspark. To reach the trailhead from Estes Park, drive 12.6 miles south on Colorado Highway 7 to the Wild Basin Road junction and turn right. After driving 0.4 miles make another right turn into the park. The Wild Basin Trailhead is located roughly 2.2 miles from the park turn-off on a narrow, two-wheel drive gravel road.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  This is a moderate to fast-paced hike.  Please be sure that it is a good match for your physical ability and expectation.  We will want to stay together vs break up into a fast and slow group.  There will be a stop at Ouzel Falls for snack/lunch.


You will need a National Park Pass (it's RMNP) or pay as you go.

It is a requirement that if you have to turn back that you must have a buddy to accompany you, and you must tell the coordinator (never just leave the group).
