It was a hot day when we hiked and the steep rock steps to the cascade area seemed endless! Trekking poles came in handy for short legs. Watch small children as you go across two areas of flat smooth rock. It was too late in the year to see the Calypso orchids, and the hike felt like a lot of work for the views compared to others in the park. The pit toilets at the trailhead were full of biting flies and incredibly stinky so perhaps that colored the experience. Be sure to drive all the way to the end of the dirt road to the trailhead. Don't park by the ranger station or you'll have an extra 1+ mile walk. Copeland Falls near the start of the trail was as pretty IMHO.

Excellent hike out to Calypso Cascades in late May. The flow was really churning and you could feel the power of the water with the snow melt. It's just under a 2-mile hike, and pretty easy (to moderate based on your physical abilities). Not hard at all. Be sure to pack some water though just in case.

I would read the reviews on TripAdvisor for Wild Basin Area. There are four major trail systems to explore. The Bluebird and Ouzel Lake trail is one of them. Calypso Cascades is the second stop along that trail at about the 1.5 - 1.7 mile marker. You'll pass Copeland Falls on your way here. This portion of the hike has some significant climbs. There will be long sections of stair-like steps that will give you a work out. Be sure to bring water. Maybe even pack a lunch to hangout and enjoy the views.

Wild Basin is an 18 mile drive along hwy 7 to get to the park entrance. It's worth the drive to visit Copeland Falls and Calypso Cascade together. We continued on to Ouzel Falls, but I found Calypso to be the best view of the three we saw on this hike.

All entrances into Rocky Mountain National Park require a reservation made in advance. There is a fee associated with the reservation. If you have not made a reservation a few weeks in advance, there is a high likelihood that you will not get in.

Calypso Cascades is a tall cascading waterfall in the Wild Basin area of the park. The hike is about 3 miles round trip and easy. The trail crosses the creek right below the waterfall. It keeps going up but the lighting was poor so I didn't climb very far up. This waterfall looks best in high water so visit in spring if possible. We visited in the much longer Bluebird Lake hike.

This hike was really amazing! We didn’t have much expectations when we decided to try this hike, but at the end of the three hours it took us to hike up and back to Calypso Falls, we decided this was one of our favorite hikes. The hike starts at the Wild Basin Trailhead. We arrived a little after 7:00 am and the lot was half full already. There are bathrooms and a ranger station at the Trailhead. When we departed around 10:15 all parking spots at the trailhead were full so hikers were parking farther out along other parking spaces along the two mile dirt road into the trailhead.
After 0.3 miles you reach the lower Copeland Falls, another 0.1 miles are the Upper Copeland falls. The trail then follows the St Vrain River up about 600 feet into the mountains to Calypso Cascades. About 1.3 miles into the hike the trail to the cascades veers left and crosses a bridge. After the bridge over the last 0.4 miles is probably the most difficult part of the hike, since it is all up. The Cascades were amazing during our visit (early July). I would imagine that during the fall they would not be as impressive, but with the late snow melt this year there was plenty of roaring water. The trail continues to Ouzel Falls (0.9 miles), but we decided only to do the round trip to Calypso Cascades during our visit.

We all loved the hike to Copeland Falls and then Calypso Cascades! The hike isn't too long (3.5 miles or so round trip) and it's not too difficult, and not much in elevation gain. Since CO has had a crazy winter, the rivers and falls were really flowing and it was just an amazing sight to see! We wanted to go on to Ouzel Falls but it started raining and thundering so we decided to head back out, not knowing what the weather would actually do.

This hike is 1.8 miles from the trailhead. It was really worth every step. My husband hiked up to the top of the cascades - I stopped halfway up. But the non-stop roaring water was wonderful, spraying us on a hot day! The first .3 miles is Copeland Falls, an easy hike. Then the next 1.5 miles has more incline and is a little more rugged, but truly is a wonderful hike.

We arrived at around 7:30 and followed the advice of other travel reviewers and kept driving pass the ranger station until the dirt road ends to get to the trail head. Otherwise you will add another mile on to this hike. This seemed like a long hike for us. The good news....it's a beautiful hike beside a raging river (North St. Vrain Creek), mostly shaded under the forest tundra, the temps were great low 60's -upper 70's. Bad news.... it nearly up hill ALL the WAY. Half a mile in the first falls you will come to are Copeland Falls, followed by the second falls Calypso Cascades 1.8 miles in. The hike from Calypso Cascades to Ouzel Falls is a mile and a tough one at that. This is the hardest park of the hike steep at times uphill and rocky. In the end this hike was worth it, we hiked 3 days in the park and this was by far my favorite hike. Get there early as the parking lots fills up and pushes you further out to park only adding to your hike. It's off the beaten path, wasn't too hard to find though.

I went in the Fall and the water level was low. It's a nice hike in any season but probably best in early summer.
