Soda Creek slips over a high cliff on the south side of I-70 and flows into Clear Creek. It’s a short hike on a paved trail from downtown Idaho Springs to the historic Charlie Tayler Waterwheel and this long, horsetail waterfall. Begin at the corner of the park, near “Old Smoke and Cinders,” a retired narrow gauge railroad train engine that was built by the Rhode Island Locomotive Works in 1886. The paved trail leads south, along Clear Creek and under a bridge and the interstate highway. There are mine shafts visible across the creek, and in minutes you arrive at the falls. A waterwheel sits at the base, a nineteenth-century artifact once used to power a stamp mill, and a plaque at the viewing area states that its builder, gold miner Charlie Tayler, attributed his health to the fact that he “never kissed women or took baths.”
