Continental Falls Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"On the eastern slopes of the Mosquito Range, Mohawk Lakes fuel Spruce Creek and tumble down a series of marble steps in brilliant tiers at Continental Falls. This airy, sunlit site affords stunning views to the south of 13,822-foot Mount Silverheels. There’s a trail and a 4WD road at the parking lot, and you can take either one to the falls, but the trail is more scenic and is the route described here.

Take Spruce Creek Trail #58 into the forest, cross Spruce Creek on a narrow footbridge, and enjoy glimpses of 13,164-foot Mount Helen to the west. At the junction with Wheeler
Trail—to the left and the right—continue straight on Spruce Creek Trail, and head back into the woods. A large meadow to the right of the trail offers mountain views."
