Box Canyon Falls and High Bridge Trails Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Nestled in the heart of the San Juan Skyway, one of America’s most scenic drives, the two trails to Box Canyon Falls offer equal impact.

The cool, misty (and easy) walk to the falls leads deep into a cleft in the canyon where Canyon Creek thunders 285 feet from the creek bed above. The sunny but steep portion of the hike offers grand views of the region as it leads to the top of the falls."

Susan Joy Paul
"Canyon Creek roars through the Ouray Fault and plunges into a narrow, quartzite canyon at Box Canyon Falls. The creek thunders on, in a bubbling cauldron of cold, dark water, and fills the air with a turbulent mist. A visit to Box Canyon Falls is a great way to begin or end a drive up Camp Bird Road, to view all the roadside falls there, which are outlined in the Camp Bird Road Waterfalls hike. You’ll pay to get in to Box Cañon Park from May to October, so grab a map at the visitor center and take advantage of other hikes while you’re there, including one that goes over the top of the falls."
