Copeland Falls In Wild Basin
September 14, 2022
Copeland Falls bordered by the nature rich forest in the Wild Basin area on the east side of Rocky Mountain National Park, south of Estes Park. From the Wild Basin trailhead, visitors will stroll along the St. Vrain River as it winds through the spectacular Wild Basin towards Upper and Lower Copeland Falls that is just a short .25 mile walk away from the trailhead.
Rocky Mountain National Park includes some of the highest mountains in the continental United States. The top third of the park encompasses the alpine tundra, a windswept land above the trees. Landscapes on either side of the Continental Divide feature alpine lakes, forested valleys and a wide range of plants and animals. Iconic summer thunderstorms and persistent winter winds are among the forces that continue to shape this majestic landscape.
