Hike to the picturesque falls named after the rare Calypso orchid that can be sometimes seen in patches near the falls in the summer. In Greek mythology, Calypso was the sea nymph that charmed Ulysses. Look for the elusive water ouzel (American Dipper).


Look for orange CMC cap at the Trailhead parking lot.
