This small but pretty waterfall is nestled beneath the bare ridges that make up the west side of Pikes Peak. The trail begins at a closed and gated tunnel along Colorado Highway 67 between Divide and Cripple Creek. The hike begins steeply but evens out as Horsethief Park, a pretty mountain meadow, opens up to the left. A trail running north through that meadow is part of the Ring-the-Peak trail system. Another to the right goes to Pancake Rocks. To get to the falls, continue another half-mile past the trail junction.
Recommended season(s): Spring to fall.
