Description

This beautiful cascade is "off the beaten path" in RMNP and can, therefore, be considered a "hidden" gem.

Half-Day Run: From the Cow Creek Trailhead, hike north on the North Boundary Trail to the West Creek Falls Trail. Follow the West Creek Falls Trail northwest until it terminates at the falls. Total trip is ~4.5 miles

Gem Type: Waterfall
