Dorothy Falls Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"East of the Rampart Range, Camp Creek flows southeast from Palmer Reservoir into Queens Canyon. Cool waters settle into punchbowls, slide over a ledge in twin ribbons, and pool in a natural amphitheater at Dorothy Falls. The creek continues through the canyon in a meandering path sprinkled with blocks of pink granite, toward the trailhead at Glen Eyrie.

Dorothy Falls is located in the Pike National Forest, but the trailhead lies on private property. You will need to make reservations, but there is no fee. The trail begins on a
road, then crosses the creek on footbridges five times in the first 0.4 mile. Continue into the canyon, crossing the creek numerous times on rocks and logs. Trekking poles are very useful on this hike, as the terrain is lumpy, bumpy, and splendidly wild."
