Ouzel Falls and Lake
Wild Basin is a wonderful and somewhat hidden part of Rocky Mountain National Park. You’ll hike along the sparkling, fast-flowing North Saint Vrain Creek and then pass beautiful Calypso Cascades and thundering Ouzel Falls. Beyond Calypso Cascades, nature is regenerating the forest burned in the 1978 fire, which started near Ouzel Lake. The trail offers beautiful views of Longs Peak, Mount Meeker, and the rugged Continental Divide, especially along a ridge lined with ghost trees. Pretty Ouzel Lake lies on a bench not far below treeline.
