Green Mountain Falls Waterfalls Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Situated just north of 14,110-foot Pikes Peak, the town of Green Mountain Falls bills itself as “The Gem of the Rockies.” Here, three reservoirs—North and South Catamount Reservoirs and Crystal Creek Reservoir—flow northeast to feed Catamount and Crystal Creeks, respectively, and provide two tumbling cascades and horsetail sprays along the Thomas Trail.

There is no parking at Thomas Trailhead, so this hike begins at an unnamed trailhead in downtown Green Mountain Falls, at Gazebo Lake. There is plenty of public parking here and restaurants too, so you’ll have a convenient place to refuel after your hike. Take the path along the right side of the lake and cross Ute Pass Avenue, then walk up Hotel Road to a Y and bear left onto Park Avenue (ignore the first, wooden sign for Park Avenue), and turn right up unpaved Boulder Street. The trail starts at the end of the road, and the base of Crystal Falls is just a few steps straight ahead."
