Wild Basin Area: Thunder Lake (Calypso Cascades & Ouzel Falls)

Rocky Mountain National Park

Thunder Lake is located 6.6 miles from the Wild Basin Trailhead in Rocky Mountain National Park. It lies just below treeline in an open basin with excellent fishing and numerous backcountry campsites. This long but moderate trail follows North St Vrain Creek through dense forest with stops at Copeland Falls, Calypso Cascades and Ouzel Falls. A well-defined route continues past Thunder Lake to Boulder Grand Pass (12,061') on the Continental Divide, which can be navigated down to the East Inlet Trail to form one of the most challenging E-W thru hikes across the Park.
