Please enjoy Devon Fletcher’s Blog: http://southernnewmexicoexplorer.blogspot.com/2017/10/bull-trap-canyon-silver-creek-gila.html

Below is a Devon Fletcher Photo of Lower Silver Creek Falls.  This falls drops about 40 feet in 3 tiers.  This photo shows 2 of the 3 tiers.


The Lower Silver Creek Gorge holds Lower Silver Creek Falls along with count-less small falls and water-slides.  This is a beautiful canyon and a fabulous hike.

I love hiking on hard-pan bed-rock...

essay bro

The best way we know of to get to Silver Creek is to follow Hwy 61 south of San Lorenzo 5 or 6 miles.  Turn left on Forest Road 886 for + 9 miles.  Turn north on FR 523 for + 5 miles & park & hike – Downstream 2.5 miles to Lower Silver Creek Falls - or upstream .7 miles to Upper Silver Creek Falls.
