Rainbow Falls Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Fountain Creek runs from Woodland Park, and follows US 24 past Waldo Canyon. At Manitou Springs, the creek freefalls in a dramatic plunge over red rocks, then settles back into its long journey south, to Pueblo and the Arkansas River. The waterfall is on the other side of the creek and bridge.
This is a very short hike to an impressive fall; unfortunately, the area has been heavily defaced. Graffiti covers the bridge--and even the rocks. Visitors should tread lightly here, and pack out all trash and pet excrement."
