Bull Creek Falls
......40 high Bull Creek Falls has 2 tiers of 20 high each......
...and downstream a short ways is this delightful 8 high waterfall shown in the photo below
This falls amazed me that it appears so full, white and wide... for such a small stream. How can this small amount of flowing water look so big and full- 8 high and 30 wide...it is very special...! ! !
name- Bull Creek Falls
height- 40 w/ 2 tiers
GPS coordinates- ±35°36.720N 105°32.927W
season- the month of May is best... as soon as the forest roads open in the spring but later is okay too...
ownership- Santa Fe National Forest
access- Santa Fe Forest Road 203
nearest town- Pecos is about 8 miles west of here
fun fact- This is a very special place that I plan to return to often
Forest Road 203 is a rough road for being a 2WD road. Often there are many mud puddles and some of them are a foot or more deep, but most of them have bedrock under them and are not as difficult as they appear. ±35°36.019N 105°32.627W is the GPS cords at where a 4WD road climbs up to the left of FR 203. I park here and hike this 4WD road over to the hill above the 8 falls. It is obvious that others drive the 4WD road. The climb down from the 4WD road to the 8 falls is steep but a very do-able and I think it is a fairly easy off-trail descent. The GPS cords for dropping down from the 4WD road are near: ±35°37.964N 105°32.583W see map below.
This area is a favorite of mine and I wonder if Bull Creek ever goes dry here. I think not and I hope not. I plan to return to Bull Creek Falls quite often. There are great over-nite camp-sites here. You should also plan to visit 300 high Brazel Cascades while you are in this area. It is a short easy one mile walk up Rito Ruidoso from where FR 203 crosses it. see map below.
2 other, small waterfalls are marked on this map below... do you think they really do exist...? hmmmm..... I wonder.......
