North Clear Creek Falls Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"North Clear Creek wanders through flat marshes, crosses CO 149, and freefalls off a cliff into a 100-foot deep, vertical-walled chasm. Billed as the “most photographed waterfall in Colorado,” North Clear Creek Falls is a rough-and-tumble marvel and a fine ending to your visit of the four waterfalls along the Silver Thread Scenic Byway.
The road from CO 149 to the falls overlook may be snowed in during winter months, and becomes a snowmobile path. Even when dry, FR 510 is steep and winding with dramatic exposure, so take your time and enjoy the ride. The observation area is enclosed by a chain link fence, but you will still have excellent views of the thunderous waterfall, colorful chasm, and rolling peaks beyond."
