North Crestone Trail Waterfalls Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"North Crestone Lake sits high in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains bordered northeast to southeast by 13,554-foot Fluted Peak and 13,931-foot Mount Adams. Waters spill from the lake’s edge, fuel the Lake Fork of North Crestone Creek, and babble and gurgle in cascade falls and horsetail leaps along the North Crestone Trail.

The North Crestone Trail starts on an old gravel road and travels northeast along North Crestone Creek. At about 0.75 mile, the road turns to trail, rising up and away from the creek and into the forest. As you emerge from the trees, the high peaks of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains begin to make an appearance."
