Colorado Waterfalls - The Top Three Waterfalls in Colorado You Should See

North Clear Creek Falls

North Creek Falls clearly considered the most photographed waterfall in Colorado. And because it is part of the country is far from any big city. The largest city in general is the area of ​​Gunnison. If you come from Gunnison, go through Lake City, which is the closest town to Falls Creek in North evident.

Lake City, follow Highway 149 south to reach the exit at the bottom. Once in the parking lot, this is just a short walk from the spectacular waterfall in Colorado. The smaller drops 100 feet into the canyon and saw the area where you can get a good look at it. Or, if you wish, you can follow a small path that runs up the canyon, where you can get different views of the falls. Just do not get too close to the edge.

Bridal Veil Falls

Waterfalls in Colorado, Bridal Veil Falls is definitely must see if you have a waterfall fan. And here's another in a remote area of ​​the state. Bridal Veil Falls, near the ski resort of Telluride. But once you see the waterfall, I think you'll agree that it's worth going the distance.

Bridal Veil Falls has a drop of 300 meters in length, is the highest of all famous waterfalls of Colorado. To see it, drive west of Telluride on Colorado Boulevard. This road will take you within walking distance of the waterfall, but the problem is you need a vehicle with high clearance. The road becomes unpaved and full of potholes and rocks. So if you do not have a vehicle with high ground clearance, only the park road and walk the rest of the way to the waterfall.

Fish Creek Falls

In three large waterfalls, Colorado, I tell you, Fish Creek Falls is the easiest to reach, in terms of driving. It is located near Steamboat Springs, and although a little "off the beaten path, it's even easier to obtain than in the North clearly Falls Creek and Bridal Veil Falls. And you can easily manage the way was open all the way to the parking lot.

Fish Creek Falls are just a few miles outside of Steamboat Springs. The parking, you have to pay a fee. Once done, you have to drive to the lot to see if any other point. (This will be closer to the cave) from the parking lot, this is just a short walk to Fish Creek Falls. At the bottom you cross the bridge from where you can enjoy splendid views of the waterfall.

As a side note, the best time to see the waterfall (the waterfall or any other color), usually in June or earlier, depending on snowfall. This is because the higher water level, so the waterfall will be more impressive.
