South Willow Falls

Silverthorne, Colorado

South Willow Falls Professional Review and Guide

"This easy hike follows the Mesa Cortina Trail from the outskirts of Silverthorne into the Eagles Nest Wilderness Area where it meets South Willow Creek and the Gore Range Trail. It then follows the Gore Range Trail up the north side of the fast-flowing stream, finally to arrive at South Willow Falls.

Those wanting a longer hike can continue from the falls to Red Buffalo Pass, Gore Lake and beyond. But the walk as far as South Willow Falls makes a nice day hike, and that is what I will describe here."
