This is one of the places that would have been so much better if more rain had already fallen. It was kind of brown, but the waterfall was still amazing!

Beautiful waterfall just a short walk from the parking lot. Plan to stay a little while and see it from different angles on the walking path. The drive from Creede on the silver thread scenic byway is very pretty and scenic.

Not much to say other than a really pretty place to view, easy to walk to from parking lot, and make a nice photo shoot. Only takes a short visit but worth a stop.

This waterfall is truly stunning. No hike is needed, it's a short walk from the parking area. It is off of the beautiful Silver Thread Scenic byway on Colorado 149.

Make time to see these falls! When approaching the falls climb the short trail to your right for an amazing view. These falls reminded me of Yosemite Falls. Beautiful!!!

Easy to get to. A pretty falls if you are out checking out the fall colors. Bathroom available. Good place to pack a lunch if weather permits. Watch the kids as it's easy to stray from the prepared viewing area.

Words cannot describe the beauty of the falls. The drive up from South Fork is nice and well worth it to see this gorgeous sight.

Very nice water fall in a beautiful location. You are driving through a mountain valley and do not see where a waterfall can be until you pull into the parking area and walk to the overlook area. Also a beautiful mountain view if you walk...More

While driving along the wide flat valley near creede, it seems unusual to see a sign for a waterfall. Suddenly the meandering creek drops into a major canyon, creating an impressive waterfall. The Overlook has several viewpoints from which to see the rainbow created by...More

If you turn left coming out of the parking lot for the falls, the road will take you back around to 149. You just need to stay to the right as there are a couple turn-offs that dead end. From the parking lot, it is just at 4... More
