Copeland Falls – 1mi / 1.7km
A short, easy walk leads to a series of pretty cascades along the North Saint Vrain River.
The trail enters the forest and crosses over a little stream. From here, the trail is level, passing through a forest that changes between stands of evergreens and stands of aspen. Follow the signs for Copeland Falls to the left. The trail works its way along the creek with some great views of the falls.
Copeland Falls is a combination of cascades and short drops. Continue on the side trail to the main trail and head back. Consider heading further up the trail along the creek for more cascades or even all the way up to Calypso Cascades and Ouzel Falls (see Calypso Cascades in 0-5 Miles & Ouzel Falls in 5-10 Miles for descriptions).
Trailhead: From Colorado Hwy 7, just north of Allenspark, turn onto Wild Basin Road. The Wild Basin Ranger Station and trailhead is 2.2mi/3.5km past the entrance station.
