This is a great hike down into the Wild Basin area of Rocky Mountain National Park and to Calypso Cascades. Calypso Cascades is a beautiful, tumbling waterfall that drops more than 100 feet down a forested hillside. The falls are formed by the raging waters of North Saint Vrain Creek. The trails in Rocky Mountain National Park are well maintained and marked with accurate distances at most trail junctions.
From the trailhead the trail makes a gentle climb through dense spruce forest to a small stream crossing. The trail up to this point is fairly smooth and free of rocks. Beyond the creek the trail climbs to a trail junction on rockier tread, still deep in the trees, with limited views to the north.
