(nr Lake City CO)
Nearby my camp was a side road that led up to Nellie Creek Falls. The road was narrow, very rocky, and steep; so, I shouldn’t have tried to ride my bike up there. As it turned out, I walked the bike about half of the time for the one mile distance to the falls.
The road followed the creek most of the way to the falls. Actually, there appeared to be an upper fall that was tall and narrow, and a lower fall that was short and wide. It was difficult getting close to them, requiring me to get through bushes and doing some rock crawling.
That made getting clear photos difficult, too. I persevered and got some shots. Downstream were some cascades and rapids on the fast moving creek. And, here’s a pix of what they called a county road.
They claim this was one of the more popular falls in the area. If so, folks must be rather determined to get there. I found it troublesome, with little signage to find them. Since I love waterfalls, the challenge was worth it.
