Lower Clear Creek Waterfalls Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Silver Thread Scenic Byway runs for about 70 miles from South Fork to Lake City, then continues another 55 miles to US 50 between Montrose and Gunnison. Within a 5-mile stretch of the route, between Creede and Slumgullion Pass, two short hikes and one roadside stop will lead you to four waterfalls.

The two southernmost falls—“Lower North Clear Creek Falls” and “Lower South Clear Creek Falls”—are located at the edge of a campground. North Clear Creek and Bennett Creek feed the first fall, while South Clear Creek feeds the second, and both waterfalls plummet through deep-cut gorges at Clear Creek Canyons."
