Box Canyon Waterfall & Park

The "Box Canyon" Falls, Ouray's own wonder of the world, is the culmination of Canyon Creek narrowing and spilling thousands of gallons a minute of water over the falls. It is truly a dramatic scene, and one that you can enjoy from both above and below the falls. The "Box Canyon" Box has been designated an important bird area by the National Audobon Society. At this most spectacular geological formation, the 285 foot waterfall plummets into a narrow, quartite canyon with walls overhanging the falls by nearly 100 feet. Take Highway 550 south of Ouray, and take a right on County Road 361. Signs point across the Uncompahgre Gorge to the visitor's parking lot.
