Bear Creek Cascades
...lotsa snow here in late may... but Bear Creek Cascades is a great water show this time of year.
these cascades below the falls are almost as nice as the falls...
name- Bear Creek Cascades
height- cascades, cataracts & falls are continuous for over 200’ elevation -highest single drop is ± 30’
GPS coordinates- ±36°38.718’N 105°24.263’W
season- May thru Oct… earlier is better
ownership- Carson National Forest
access- about 2 miles of bushwhack
nearest town- Red River is about 5 miles north of here
fun fact- very few people ever visit this place because of access difficulty
We park along the paved road about a half-mile south of Bear Creek and walk above the houses to Bear Canyon. It’s alittle extra walking… but this country is worth the effort.
