The trail to the upper leaps of Cascade Falls climbs the hillside at the northwest arc of the Amphitheater, a horseshoe-shaped confined drainage formed by a volcanic explosion millions of years ago. The falls here filter through the rock in tiered horsetails above the trail, then freefall in a dramatic plunge below. The hike on the Upper Cascade Falls Trail (#213) lies on south-facing slopes above Ouray, so prepare for plenty of sunshine. You’ll cross the Portland Trail early on, and have views of 12,801-foot Abrams Mountain and 13,139-foot Hayden Mountain North, to the south. The town falls far below, and your dirt path turns steep and rugged with colorful, broken chips of pink, blue, and gray rock lining the trail.
