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. At this most spectacular geological formation, the 285 foot waterfall plummets into a narrow quartzite canyon. The narrow rock walls tower over the falls by nearly 100 feet! The park is on CR361 - off Highway 550 just south of Ouray.
