The Greenest Spot In Colorado Will Transport You To A Lush New World
It is no secret that this has been an incredibly dry year in terms of weather, but despite this, there are still places in Colorado that are vibrantly lush. Need proof? Visit this green spot in Colorado that will transport you to a verdant new world:
Welcome to Rocky Mountain National Park, which spans 265,461 gorgeous acres and offers amazing opportunities to get out into the wilderness, see some wildlife, and find a sense of wonder.
There are 350 miles of trails and 470 miles worth of streams and lakes tucked away in this park, including the must-see Ouzel Falls.
Boasting a 40-foot-tall cascade, Ouzel is truly a sight to behold, not only because of the waterfall itself, but also...
...the incredibly lush land that surrounds it.
The five-mile out-and-back trail to Ouzel Falls is the epitome of summertime fun, immersing you in the beautiful green foliage and colorful wildflower blooms.
Seriously... is this a real spot or a watercolor painting? It's positively magical!
The trail to Ouzel Falls begins at the Wild Basin Trailhead near Allenspark and is open June through November.
Here’s a handy map to help you find your way there!
