Colorado has many waterfalls. Some are a bit over commercialized, making you pay not only an entrance fee but for parking as well.
The most famous falls in our county is North Clear Creek Falls. It is only 1/2 mile off of the little highway between Lake City, CO and Creede. There is paved paved parking, a nice restroom, picnic tables and guardrails and all for free. It was our first stop with our guests, but I was eager to show them a nearby waterfall that is a bit hidden.
Less than a mile down the road and tucked away behind a small campground is South Clear Creek Falls, where you are allowed to hike down a short trail to the bottom of the falls.Those are our guests trekking down. You would never know it is there as there isn’t any visible signage on the road.
Next stop was the small town of Creede where there are still remnants of the booming mining town it was. Creede is a popular tourist town in the summer so the rstaurants were swamped.
where you can get a delicious grilled hamburger ,
not to mention where their $2 single dip ice cream cones that always includes two scoops.
It ended up being their favorite days here.
