Mineral Creek Falls
10 feet high Mineral Creek Falls dwindles to a small spring-fed flow during dry years. photo by: John Scott
name- Mineral Creek Falls
height- 10 feet high with two tiers
GPS coordinates- ±33°21.580’N 107°45.150’W
season- spring, summer and fall
ownership- Gila National Forest
access- 4-mile hike from forest road #226
nearest town- Chloride is 5 air miles SW of here
fun fact- I think John has been the only person to visit this waterfall within the last 30 years.
About 11 miles east of Chloride on forest road #226 is the trailhead for the Mineral Creek Trail. You will know you are there when you drive up a long steep hill and have a beautiful view of Lookout Mountain straight ahead of you. There has been a lot of mining activity in this area, and it likely will kind of show. Thanx John for hiking in here... I hope to some day...
