"Cascade Creek slips through the drainage south of 12,368-foot Cascade Mountain and pours west, into Ouray. The final leap shoots over pink cliffs in a frothy, white spray and splashes over boulders at Lower Cascade Falls Park. Lower Cascade Falls Trailhead is within walking distance of downtown Ouray, and the hike to the waterfall is even shorter. Both are steep. The trail meets up with the Perimeter Trail early on, with the Amphitheater Campground Picnic Area less than 0.5 mile to the right. You will go left, toward the waterfall. For a longer outing, pick up a map at Ouray’s Visitor Center, located on the north end of town just off the Lower Cascade Falls shoots over pink cliff s in a frothy, white spray." Read more
