Ousel Falls Trail is perhaps the most popular trail in Big Sky because of its beautiful waterfalls and easy accessibility. Ousel Falls trailhead is just two miles down from the entry into Big Sky's Town Center on Ousel Falls Road. The 0.8 mile trail slopes down into the South Fork ravine, winds through green pines and rushing creeks, finishing with two switch backs that lead to the incredible waterfall.
Hikers can walk down to a stretch of flat rocks at the base of the falls to sit and take in the views. If you are looking for more of a challenge, two other trails, Yellow Mule Trail and South Fork Look, provide hikers with an extended trip.
The 1.6 mile round trip hike is an improved gravel handicap accessible trail that is suitable for hikers of all ages and skill levels. It is an excellent introduction to Big Sky's trails system.
