"Williams Canyon Creek flows south from the Rampart Range and trickles into Williams Canyon as tiered falls and punchbowls. The waterfalls here are ephemeral, and some days may appear as no more than mere stains on the rock, but the hike through this limestone canyon—lined with dark caves and towering buttresses—is simply enchanting. Begin at the gate for the old Cave of the Winds exit, passing under the sign and around the gate. The gravel road soon turns to trail, and at about half a mile in you may hear music and the voices of tourists high above you and to the northwest, at Cave of the Winds." Read more
