Guffey Falls Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This two-tiered display falls gently through a slotted crevice amid granite blocks, spilling its waters into a round and placid punchbowl in Paradise Cove. Tucked just off the road in Guffey Gorge and fed by West Fourmile Creek, “Guffey Falls” is a diminutive treasure in a magical setting.

Follow the trail north over a low rise and down a few short switchbacks. Go through the gate and close it behind you. Cross West Fourmile Creek three times, first on boulders, then on a small bridge, and then on boulders again as you enter Guffey Gorge. Hike uphill to the trail’s high point before dropping down some steep, loose switchbacks. The falls and swimming hole will appear in a cove to your right."
